My ex husband was in a roll over car accident in his 2006 ford fusion going 70 mph and his air bags didnt deploy. is there a recall on those or does he have a possible case for his injuries?


Front air bags are not designed to deploy in side impact, rear impact or rollover crashes.There are several reasons why your air bag may not have deployed during a crash. The first reason is that perhaps your crash is not the type of accident where air bag deployment would be helpful. For frontal air bags, this includes many, but not all, side impacts, rear impacts and rollovers. This category also includes minor accidents in which the driver and front passenger (if there was one) did not suffer any significant injuries requiring medical treatment. Many people do not realize there are a lot of side air bags that do not deploy during a rollover accident, even when the vehicle rolls onto its side. That is because those side air bags do not include an appropriate crash sensor that can detect rollover crashes.

Did the airbag deploy? I had the same issue with my 1995 Chrysler when it was struck head-on and the airbags deployed. I think it is a feature to make sure that repairs are made correctly.

If you had it repaired, take it back to the repair shop.

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

I've been in a wreck the damage is fixed. I have a new airbag control module. I've been told I need to replace the "crash sensors" before installing the new airbag control module. Where are the Crash...


The crash sensors are located inside the computer the accelarometer would of been replaced if the computer was replaced. Or the air bag control modual. The clock spring would need to be replaced but the front magnetic sensors should be fine, they don't normally wear out. they can be damaged but the air bag warning light would flash if it was bad. And the air bag would still not go off unless the other condtions are met to make the bag deploy. The air control modual would have been replaced if it was done by a shop that is part of the service when the bags deploy. The crash sensors are a magnet with a steel ball and when the right speed is reached and the ball is let go from the metal o ring that it sits in it will deploy the first trigger the next trigger would be the acelorometer in the air control module and the impact would have to be strong enought to knock that ball loose as well to trigger the air bag.

Front seatbelt jammed


If the seat belt has jammed, you may just need to replace the mechanism- you want it to do its job correctly when you need it
For your information,--You may need to replace the mechanism for the seat belt. If the impact restraint system has encountered what they refer to as a stage one deployment due to a minor accident, the seat belt locks up, and even though the airbag(s) hasn't deployed, there are frame sensors that may need replacing reset.
We encountered this with my daughter's 05 Focus and needed to replace the belt assembly, and a couple sensors on the frame..

Ford Focus seatbelt locked


There is a gas cylinder that tightens the belt in a minor collision, it is a one time use part it is independent of the air bag deployment system, you will have to replace the seat belt gas cylinder, that may mean a new belt assembly, not sure on focus.
