Question about 1998 Ford Contour

1 Answer

Deployed airbag I am considering buying a 1998 ford contour that was in an accident for my son for a project. The airbag was deployed. Now, the ignition is shut off. How do we reset the switch, or disable the ignition cutoff so we can drive the car to our house? It is too far to tow for a reasonable price. Thanks.

There should be a red or black switch in the back possibly under the carpet or close to the quarterpanel

Why didn't Nissan airbag deploy?


Speed....point of impact.....all make a difference on when an airbag deploys it is possible to have an accident and the airbag will not deploy the sensors have to register an impact of certain size and weight to deploy .....in older cars you are probably glad they did not deploy because they often blacked eyes broke noses and caused Neck injury by the amount of force they deployed at..

Front impact crash & airbag did not diploy


Airbags have specific criteria for deployment that determines whether impact was severe enough to deploy bags or whether only 1 stage deployment is needed or may decide impact was minor enough that deployment of airbags could potentially be more dangerous than the actual impact. For instance I was on the expressway last year going 65mph and someone rear ended me at over 100mph. Totaled my Ford Focus, her airbag did not deploy. Over certain speeds depending on the vehicle calibration, and airbag should never deploy. With an impact under a designated speed or over a designated speed a deployment can be dangerous. As long as your airbag light was not on before the crash I'd say your system was working properly and did not malfunction. If your airbag light ever comes on just keep in mind that any airbag malfunction will disable the system and turn on the light

1997 honda civic lx involved in a minor accident, airbags did deploy, now cranks but, won't start....replaced the mains relay but still won't start. Need idea of what may be the problem


If the airbags deployed, I suspect the car took a good
hit. If the car is worth keeping, considering the air bag
situation alone, I would take it to the dealer.

Airbag light flashes four or five time then pauses and repeats.


The automatic air bag sensor is tested EVERYTIME to start the car/van. Your system has detected a failure in the Air Bag deployment sensor. It is not dangerous... but the air bag with the faulty sensor will not deploy in an accident.

98 Saturn SL1, Was in accident: Deployed Airbags & Horn questions


The light should go out after you replace the sensor that should be in the front of the vehicle.You can check the fuse for the horn. However, some of the airbags that don't come from a dealers, don't deploy, but there is no way of knowing that until you are in an accident.
