D squib is drivers airbag actuator. Check the YELLOW plug behind the cowls on the steering column. If that is o.k. follow the big yellow wire and check for further connections!

...and remember to always disconnect the battery for five minutes and leave it that way,
before tinkering with airbags.

Generally dat code is a break in the spiral cable behind the steering wheel disconect the battery and remove the airbag and disconnect the yellow connector under the wheel and carry out a resistance check lookin for open circuit or short wire to wire
