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.

The drivers side airbag light comes and stays on my 2006 Toyota Rav4 until the car is warm. What's wrong?


you need to get in touch with toyota they had a recall on your vehicle due to airbag.THE STEERING COLUMN ASSEMBLY CONTAINS ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS TO THE DRIVER'S AIRBAG MODULE HOUSED IN A SPIRAL CABLE ASSEMBLY, WHICH INCLUDES A FLEXIBLE FLAT CABLE (FFC). DUE TO THE SHAPE AND LOCATION OF THE FFC'S RETAINER, THE FFC COULD BECOME DAMAGED WHEN THE STEERING WHEEL IS TURNED.
Consequence: IF THE FFC IS DAMAGED, CONNECTIVITY TO THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG MODULE COULD BE LOST AND THE AIR BAG DEACTIVATED. THE FAILURE OF THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG TO DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH THAT TYPICALLY NECESSITATES DEPLOYMENT INCREASES THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE DRIVER.

have you changed the sensor on the side of the deployed air bag-it might be in the door or the center post between the front and rear seats-and when you say computor do you mean the main trigger or the one that runs the car-what happens is the sensor in the side sez-set off air bag then the main trigger also sez set off air bag then it goes off- the cpu for the car will only retain a history of the event-cheers Denny

in the U.S. the airbags are programmed to deploy @ 9mph(roughly the same as hitting a kerb hard.)so if the airbag went off you would not know if you hit a pothole, unless you went back to look....dont know any makers airbags that have recalls applied to them.

http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/ is the website I checked for your car and found no reference to this issue. There are reports of airbag deployments with no collisions, although they are rare. The computer in your car is capable of displaying the deployment, and may show which sensor in the front if any caused it to deploy (collision first/deployment second) or if no sensor signal (deployment first / collision second) is logged. Whatever the outcome, you will need a specialist in data extraction to achieve this.

Hit a deer and airbags deployed; some front end damage to vehicle; what do I need to do to replace airbags and get them functioning again? (especially with regards to airbag sensor)


the air bags are very costlly, like around 2,000-4,000 eachwith out labor. the sensors are a few hundred also. when you replace the air bags you should replace all of the sensors. very expensive. for that kind of money you could almost get a new van. using junk yard air bags i don't suggest. to risky.

I hit a telephone pole at the front end drivers side of the car. Airbags deployed. I wana know my chances of it being fixable.


I like your question. The airbag system is repairable with one or two new or repaired air bags (possibly a new sensor if the one by the radiator got bashed). You can Google or Ebay suppliers online. The amount of repair the front end of the car needs is a tougher question. What did the insurance company say it would cost? Did they total it?

02 330i drivers door airbag deployed, dealer saying it needs a new door panel,I disagree, looks like the panel is fine & can be used after a new air bag is set in. Any advice here?


the door panel needs to be replaced to correctly fix it. I guess you could go and glue the door panel back together. The dealership is going to put the vehicle back into factory condition. Usually when side air bags blow, the way the door panel is meant to tear it would make sense just to glue it back together as long as the leather doesn't tear

Heater valve replaced and air bag missing


If the cars front end alignment is noticeably off since you gave the shop the car to work on, and the passenger air bag is missing, it sounds like they drove it and had an accident. Any evidence of damage or fresh paint anywhere? Another possibility is that they could have failed to disable the air bags, and while working on the car one deployed. They would have had to remove the deployed air bag, and replace the cover only. This wouldn't account for the alignment problem though. How did you determine the missing air bag, the indicator light is on? You need to check the car over carefully for any signs of accident damage. How long did they have your car in the shop?
