Only if you have accident the module my be bad. Common problem is the clock spring below the steering. if you run already test with the scanner and you need the module is located in center console below the ashtray. SRS system is with YELLOW connectors. disconnect the battery before perform any SRS work and let the system discharge for 10 min. before start working

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.

The air bag module is under the center console.Before any repair make sure and disconnect the battery and remove the air bag fuse.Do not remove or disconnect anything in the air bag system for at least a half hr.This system can go off for up to 15 to 20 minutes after power is removed.You also have to watch out for static electricity.This can also make the bags go off.You have to be very careful around air bag systems.Hope this helps.Good luck.
