To be honest. Replacing airbag system should only be done by a certified mechanic. You are looking at almost if not over 1 grand in parts alone. Yes there are front and side sensors.

Air bags are about $700 a piece from from Ford, you should'nt attempt to work on them because they are a lifesaving device and shouldnt be practiced on EVER. The are also EXTREMELY dangerous to handle because they contain an EXPLOSIVE charge and can injure or kill you.

Video on how to reset air bag module after crash deployed air bags


There is no way to re-set your module if the internal inertia switch has been deployed. Just replace your module with an new one. You will need to make sure that all parts of the system have been repaired before installing and powering up your new module as there is a self test every time the system is powered up. If there is still a fault there will be an error code set in the new module. All impact sensors, seat belt tensioners, clock spring, wiring, and air bags them selves have to be in place and connected.

Can an air bag sensor on a 2011 Ford Escape be tested to see if its good after removing from the vehicle?


There are more than one sensor used to deploy the air bag none mounted at the air bag. the switch is a sealed tube with a ball inside ,a magnet to hold the ball at one end and a pair of contacts at the other end. on impact the ball moves forward and closes the contacts. Make sure the battery is removed before playing with air bag switches . It is quite costly if the bag is deployed.

Air bag deployment 2006 ford escape


You can still drive the car, just cut the air bag off. There is a lot more in repairing a deployed SRS than just replacing the steering wheel.

My horn on my 2002 ford explorer went off and would not stop honking until we hit the middle of the steering wheel.....is the horn connected to the air bag or seperate. is it a censor in the steering...


If you have an aftermarket burgler alarm in it i would check wiring where it was installed. If not it is probably a malfunction in the contacts in the steering wheel. If checking the steering wheel unhook the battery and let it sit for a few minutes. It is always good to do this so the air bag will not deploy.thanks

Something is wrong with the SRS. This is not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional for repair. They will reset the light after repairing it. Otherwise the air bag may not deploy in an accident or may deploy at any moment. Don't take the risk. Get this fixed

Air bag light stays on, never deployed


If you have any doubts about your ability to safely work on an air bag system, you should have the dealer (or a qualified repair shop) repair your air bag problem. Either way, it should be repaired. Your air bag system may be disabled anytime the warning lamp is on.
Your two problems are unrelated.
