2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS airbag problems

I have a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS. In February of 2008 I was in an accident and my airbags deployed. I have a set of replacement airbags and the computer module. I'm planning on doing the replacement work this weekend. (5/16/2009-5/17/02009) I am not 100% sure where the airbag computer module is located. Also I have the Chilton Repair Manual and it shows how to replace the driver's airbag but not the passenger airbag. Is there anyone who knows where the Computer module is located and how to take out the deployed passenger airbag?

The passenger side airbag is a lot easier then driver side. Take the glove box out and you will see two 10mm bolts holding it in place. When you open the passenger side front door, remove the panel on the side of the dash and you will see yellow connectors.The 1 closest to the front is attached to the air bag, it is clipped into the frame. Just pull it loose and take it out and your done. For the Driver side, it takes a skinny T27 to remove the two star bolts, then just disconnect the horn red clip and ground and install new airbag. The module is located under the passenger seat, underneath the carpet. Kinda stupid but thats where its at. You also need to replace the front impact sensor located behind the grille on the back side of the metal bar to each side. Follow the hood latch down. Also just to make sure, you know to disconnect the battery before you do all this. You don't want new airbags to accidentally deploy.

I don't kno the extent of damage but if a 2002 chevy malibu had the airbags deployed will it still start.. i had someone tell me once airbags are deployed the car won't start


There are computer and safety interlocks that generally prevent cars from starting after the airbags deploy. Some cars have explosive bolts that also fire to disconnect the battery and fuel pump after an airbag deployment. These are all meant to limit damage in an accident. I suggest you take the car on a flatbed truck to a dealer or mechanic.

Why didn't Nissan airbag deploy?


Speed....point of impact.....all make a difference on when an airbag deploys it is possible to have an accident and the airbag will not deploy the sensors have to register an impact of certain size and weight to deploy .....in older cars you are probably glad they did not deploy because they often blacked eyes broke noses and caused Neck injury by the amount of force they deployed at..

2013 Volkswagen Beetle airbags did not deploy in my accident


The airbag technology uses many factors when deploying. If it doesn't see the need, they won't pop out at you possibly injuring you more than the small accident. When I was clipped on my rear corner and spun me around in the intersection, they didn't pop. But a head first hit popped them. The primary sensor is behind the front bumper

Fiat 500 airbag light stays on but reads no faults


Hello,
Airbags are only serviceable by the dealership, the light indicates there is a problem in the Airbag system and they will not deploy in case of an accident. Regular scanners would not read anything related to Airbags. Talk to your dealrship, I would ask if there is any safety recalls concerning airbags on your model.

Airbag light reset sx4


There is a manufacturer's recall on this if it's caused by a failure in the front passenger weight detection system.

The system has a minimum weight required in the front passenger seat for the airbag to deploy in an accident (if no one is in the front passenger seat during an accident, the airbag does NOT deploy). If the system fails and the car cannot determine if someone is in the front passenger seat, the light illuminates and in an accident the passenger airbag WILL deploy, even if there's no one in that seat.

The purpose of the system is to prevent airbag deployment for a lightweight child in the front seat. The fix is to replace the seat weight sensor mat...free if it's the recall item.

IF AIRBAG LIGHT STAYS ON WILL THIS HARM THE CAR ANY KIND OF WAY?


No, but your airbags may not deploy when you need it to like in an collision. Airbags have allowed me to walk away from an accident a couple of times and I wouldn't take a chance and not get it checked.
