Question Any one know how to linking-up electronic airbag wire under driver seat

The electronic wire which is purpose for driver side airbag and seat-belt sensor was chew and disconnected by my dog. There have totally 6 wires. Two for seat-belt sensor which is clearly to be recognized but the other four wires which are totally same two by two. I don't know which one connect to which one. Does any one know how to linking-up these wires ?

Did you look at the passenger side? It might give you some ideas.

Yes, good advice but the color are totally same. As the picture shown there have two pairs of the wires are all using the same colors so you can't know how to linking them up. It is really is not a good design.

Next head to the dealership and take a picture of one like yours. Also run your hand along each wire to see if one is rough and the other is smooth.

My gut is saying is telling me the same color would be a return run. Get a VOM and check for voltage if there is a difference verify against the passenger side.

Thanks a lot for your reply Yoda. Do I need to remove the battery firstly and then to verify the voltage or just keep the battery then verify? I am guessing there should not have any voltage after I removing the battery.

Google it, you need an FSM elec diagram minimum, trace it to the conn/pin-out, and probe it/them, etc.
You’re working with the safety system, yes disconnect the batt but they would still have capacitors.
Are you sure they’re the same colors, without a faint stripe/dash?

Of course, it may be best to take it to the dealer.
Ask for an estimate.
