Check with the dealer or research as most modern vehicles have a safety switch hidden that trips when accident jars vehicle----turns off the fuel pump etc.

SOURCE: 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.

Brake lights and cruise control are not set properly.
Easy check - are your brake lights coming on with just the usual light touch of the pedal? If not, then the microswitch that senses that your foot is on the brake needs to be adjusted or replaced.

SOURCE: 2003 volvo s60, how do i adjust headlights

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

Is thete a fuel reset button on a 2006 avalon


There is no fuel shutoff or reset switch on the Avalon, the fuel pump will disable if the air bags are deployed in an accident.

Busted radiator


Did the air bags deploy?
If not then your frame should be ok. The impact wasn't enough to bend the frame.
If your air bags did deploy. Then your frame could have damage. I recommend taking it to a collision center near you to have it checked.

Crashed my ford focus 2007 driver and passenger air bag deployed replaced but car wont start engine system failure on clocks please help


Hi there ,think you will find you will need to reset the engine management system
as it records the fact the air bags are deployed and thus safety feature is not to let he vehicle start as it thinks it still has deployed air bags,either a good auto electricion or dare i say fords.


hope this helps :-)

1995 ford bronco - does the fuel pump shut off switch activate if airbag is deploed in a crash


The fuel deadman switch is an inertia-based switch, the momentum and sudden stop in a crash will set if off regardless of whether or not the airbag deploys. The airbag is set off by the closing of one crash sensor and one safing sensor simultaneously. I hope this helps

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.

Where are the airbag sensors on a 2002 Malibu? Daughter ran off road, hit ditch & did damage to right front from headlight down....both airbags deployed...is that normal?


Hi, the impact sensors for the air bags are usually located between the headlights more or less at the lowest point of the headlights. It is possible that the air bags will deploy as the impact sensors work with vibration. If the vibration is big enough to activate the sensor the air bags will deploy.

My 2005 gmc envoy airbags did not deploy on impact or even when the firefighters tried to deploy them... what the hell is this? my kids could've been in the vehicle.


If the airbag light had been on so long that it bunrt out then the light wouldnt be on to tell you they wont work. If the SRS fuse was blown or removed the airbags and the light won't work. If the car had been repaired by a less than honest repairman and the airbags were replaced with dummies that trick the light to being out.. The SRS bags are expensive and the triggers and the wiring are all supposed to be replaced if the bags were deployed in an accident. A dual bag system that has been deployed can cost $4000 to replace correctly, never mind the other work thats required to make the car safe and roadworthy. A car facts report may find the person thats responsable for the less than complete repair. If any senser or air bag doesnt complete the circuit to the controller the warning light SRS or AIRBAG orange or yellow will be on and the bags with the light on will not work. I hope everything comes out OK as to find this out you had to be in a hard accident and the fireman has been trained to protect the wreaker and rescue peaple by causing the air bags to deploy if they didn't. So the bags cant hurt them as they work to remove the busted car from the crash site

How do i take off my airbag on a 2002 volvo s60


you cannot do this without it deploying. I would remove fuse in engine comparment, and the one under the dash, and then disconnect the air bag sensor behind the grill

Air bags deployed now 1996 lexus es 300 wont start


Most likely the crash sensor (located somewhere in the front of the vehicle) has triggered. Some can be re-set, most have to be replaced, otherwise the vehicle will not start.
