Agreed, if you remove the SIR fuse, no need to go through all those other iterations. Additionally, if you disconnect the battery then there is really no need to remove the SIR fuse. Still a good write up & grahphic.

IIRC the SIR system still may deploy even without battery voltage....the system can still go off even with the fuse pulled....I would NOT doing anything but what the FSM says....the Airbag system is not something to fool around with
