SOURCE: Car Accident and the Airbags Didn't Deploy

first you need to know if the air bag light was coming on before the accident, if the light was coming on then the car should be fixed before in order to get the air bags to work propelly, also were did you buy the car from? was this a new car purchased? or did you buy it used at small dealer ? because if it was new or bought used from a dealer, they are supposed to do an inspection safety check on every car before they can sell it to the public, also for what i understand the air bag module stores a lot of information after an accident, like what speed was the car going, if he did stop or acerelate the car at time of accident, it stores lost of information. and to be honest with you i don't know if the car can save this information with the air bag previously on, but ask the police department or the investigators to pull the information from the air bag module wich is like a black box installed on air planes, something similar, i hope and you stiil have the car or acces to it, but you right if he got out the caR at moment of firts impact, he would be here now, but that's just my way to think or imajine, since i was not there, i hope and this information help, and if you trying to sue somebody, make sure to try to sue the bigest company involve in this deal because i belive there will be only 1 sue case by case, you better get some legal help since i'm not an attorney, and i will aprecciate you ranking to my answer since that will really help my score

SOURCE: car wont restart after minor fender bender

Most modern autos are equiped with a crash sensor fuel cutoff switch. That may need to be reset. I don't know much about the Tarus, but I found the switch in the trunk area near the passenger rear fender in my Ford Escort.

SOURCE: Cheaply replace steering wheel w/out airbag module

Lisa,

I don't know what state you are in... but in Massachusetts your truck will not pass inspection if the air bag is tampered with. A missing airbag will report to the OBD (your computer) and will cause a fail for your safety inspection. Sorry!

SOURCE: I got into accident, airbags deployed, dont want new airbags, but front blinkers dont work, how do i fix?

If this was a reportable accident, your insurance company should take care of the air bag and consequencial damages. Bypassing safety devices as such creates greater risk of severe injury because the rest of the vehicle is designed with all systems functional. Ck w/ insurance co.

2003 BMW 530i how To remove deployed airbag


Hi
at the rear of the s wheel there will either be inset screws or bolts to loosen...or you may well have to turn wheel 90 degrees and locate a small opening. With battery disconnected totally...put a small lever in and push the airbag tangs away from the column. once one side is away, do the same to the other side. It fiddly but refitting is a doddle.
*****Note...airbags may require reprogramming and crash data removed ir reset so....be warned!
cheers

Air bag sensors light on 2007 kia optima came on about after a small fender bender. right front fender is slightly damaged, is there an airbag sensor light located there?


There may not be a sensor in that very location where the damage is but it may have been enough to trigger at least one sensor. The thing to do would have a shop hook up a scanner and see why the light is on instead of replacing sensors. Usually it takes more force to trigger a sensor inside the car than it does to trigger and outside sensor. And at least two sensors need to trigger before an airbag is deployed.

Horn wont honk. Fuse is good and horn honks when hooked up tp 12 volt source. Is there a relay?


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

to disable them,unplug the plugs after the battery has been disconnected for 2 minutes to avoid deployment. if you physically want to remove them,that is different,the one on the passenger side is part of the dash,a thin plastic line ruptures upon deployment and the airbag inflates.
the drivers airbag is disabled by the yellow connector at the bottom of the steering column

330I drivers side airbag deployed and the car will not start


You triggered the impact sensor.(usually on or near the front bumper) It will need to be re-set or replaced, and obviously, you need to replace airbag.

Airbags


You may need to call several salavage yards, but there should be one out there that will sell you one without the air bag. If your steering wheel isn't damaged, you might be able to disconect the air bag from the steering wheel.
