This should be covered when the insurance repaired the car. The sensor for detection of collisions was damaged by the crash but not in the method that would cause airbags to deploy. It needs to be replaced. its not something that you should try to repair because it is a life safety device and it needs to be certified that it will work.

What is responsible for this anomaly is the sensor that detected the hit. Maybe the electronics can be "reset" to resolve the issue - check with the dealer - maybe you can do it yourself.

Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

How to deactivate the passenger airbag?


Impact Depending (ID) airbags.
With the Impact Depending (ID) system, you and your passenger are given effective protection proportionate to the severity of the impact.

Conventional airbag systems are unable to differentiate between a severe impact and a lighter one. When they are deployed, they are inflated to the fullest level, making the airbag as hard as possible. In a low-level accident, this is not necessary.
The intelligent ID airbags are equipped with a two-stage gas generator. In a more severe impact, they inflate to their fullest level with minimum time delay, providing maximum protection for the occupants. However, when the accident is less severe, they allow for a slightly longer delay before deployment, protecting the occupants with a more gentle inflation. Whatever the severity of the impact, the airbags ensure that neither the driver nor the front passenger contacts the steering wheel or instrument panel.
A special weight sensor in the passenger seat registers whether the seat is occupied or not. The system can thus differentiate between a passenger and a lighter object such as a briefcase. If the seat is occupied by a weight less than 12 kg, the front passenger airbag is not deployed, saving replacement costs following a crash and potentially leading to lower insurance charges. The front passenger airbag can also be deactivated using a key switch, when a child seat is fitted.
finding a kit to disable the airbag is not going to be easy,noone including dealers will sell or install them on any bimmer,
you could find a kit and buy individual replacement parts,but,i wouldn't recommend it,much less recommend switching the airbag off,personally,I would purchase and install a 5 point restraint that doesn't let the child move forward too much and pull the seat all the way back,the child will not be hurt that way,also in a low speed crash,bimmers dont fully inflate the bag,here is what one owner has to say on a forum about it,
I take my 3, 6 and 9 year olds for drives in my car. These cars are very safe, as is evidenced by my auto insurance premiums being only marginally higher for the Z3 than for my pickup and my wife's SUV. Of course we do have those vehicles for use in transporting the kids most of the time.

Several key things to keep in mind: use a booster seat so the child sits higher, to move the seat all the way back, and to not allow the child to lean against the door--you need to have adequate clearance there.

It's hard for me to believe a side airbag could be worse than hitting the door itself in a side impact--assuming the child is sitting a little away from the door to allow full inflation of the airbag before the child hits it

Srs light on 1999 pajero 3.2 di


they are not really relays, they function as relays but are actually impact sensors for the srs system and are mounted on the steel part of your front bumper, or first cross member under the front of the car, they are called impact sensors.
in a hard collision they trip and send current to the explosive charge that inflates your airbags (short explanation )

On my dashboard I have the letters SRS in red. What does this stand for and how do I fix it???


hi there Supplemental Restraint System is the meaning of (SRS). This refers to airbags that are located at the front part of the dash board and inflate upon a collision in order to protect the occupants of the vehicle from major injuries from the steering wheel or wind shield. the way to fix this problem is take it to your local mechanic and get the code that is triggering this light to come on and then you can fix the problem and the light will then shut off after codes are cleared thank you and have a wonderful day

It all depends on the speed you hit tree. BMW can scan computer and track back any faults. Hopefully SRS/check engine light wasn't lit when you were involved in accident.

I was hit from behind by another car; and the air bags did not infralte. the problem is that the air ba light came on and the passenger set belt airbag indicator is always off. Toyota Camry 2004 Model


The airbags are meant to inflate only on frontal impact as that is when the driver and passenger tend to bend forward and can get injured. When hit from the back the driver and other tend to sink into the seats, so there is no chance of hitting the steering or dashboard. Why the passenger's airbag light came on or whatever may be some electrical fault as a result of the impact. That should be rectified to ensure proper functioning of the seat belt and the airbags and not raise a false alarm.

Airbag locations


In the steering wheel and passenger side dash.Due to the age of the vehicle probably doesn't have the curtain "side" airbags.The airbags were designed primarily for head on collisions. Here is some useful information to why the may have not deployed courtesy of http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/dec2001/collision.htm
How Air Bags Work To have a frontal (driver or passenger) air bag deploy, certain criteria must be met. One of these criteria is that the frontal impact must be within a 60-degree window, occurring within 30 degrees from the vehicle's centerline. Another key element is that the crash forces are equivalent to a head-on collision with an immovable barrier at 10-15 miles per hour. Because a typical automobile accident only lasts about 0.125 (1/8th) of a second, air bags deploy within 15 to 20ms after the initial crash impact. To create a protective cushion between the occupant and the vehicle's interior, the air bag inflates at speeds up to 200 mph within approximately 30ms after impact. This allows the occupant to contact a fully inflated bag within approximately 45 to 50ms after the initial crash impact. Approximately 100ms after impact the bag deflates.

SRS


SRS stand for Supplymentary Restraint System, The purpose of the SRS light on your instrument panel is to alert you of a potential problem with your supplemental restraint system. It should blink seven times when you turn the ignition switch to ON or START and go OFF. A possible fault in the system can lead to any of the following: (a) The light does not come on when you turn the ignition ON. (b) The light stays on after the engine starts. (c) The light comes on while you are driving. Apart from the conventional causes of these faults (faulty airbag system), majority of the light indicator problem has been attributed to ignorance while fixing or repairing mechanical and/or wiring systems within the vehicle. If the SRS indicator light alerts you to a problem, have the supplemental restraint system inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore this indication, the airbags might not inflate when you need them. Likely Causes:
  • Steering wheel modifications
  • Faulty driver/passenger seat sensors for your airbag system (located under the seats)
  • Faulty seat belt mechanism
  • Tampered system components or wiring (e.g battery jumpering)
* Sometimes, a little adjustment of your seat belts and/or seat positions might fix the indicator problem over time (if the sensors are not faulty).
Precautions:
  • Do not modify your steering wheel or any other part of the supplemental restraint system. Modifications could make the system ineffective.
  • Do not tamper with the system's components or wiring. This could cause the airbags to inflate inadvertently, possibly injuring someone very seriously.
  • Tell anyone who works on your vehicle that you have a supplemental restraint system. Failure to follow the procedures and precautions in the official service manual could result in personal injury or damage to the system.
  • If all sensors are ok, the system can be reset using appropriate tools; refer to specially trained technicians.
