This is all about enertia and force delivered. Bumpers are Federally crash rated at 3.5 miles an hour and a head on impact could deploy bags as low as 5 mph if all conditions are met .For instance if you hit a solid wall head on, with no braking,your bags are deploying at these low speeds but you would be amazed how much energy is transmitted from a front end impact of this magnitude.

I'm not really sure you want to test that. i believe tho that it is approximately 35 mph. they did not go off in an accident i had as i was driving a t-bird and had a cube van turn in front of me. the nose of the car went under the van. the sensors are located in the bumper which is why they didn't go off for me.

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 2004 buick ranier says service air bags the scan says driversside deployment sensor openwhat does this mean and is it real expensive to fix


It means that the ECM thinks the air bag has deployed. Your air bags will not protect you in a crash until this is fixed. I'm not sure if the deployment sensor has a dedicated line on the clockspring ribbon or not. The reason is, that the clockspring is the usual suspect for air bag codes. Since the deployment sensor is not accessible, I would have a professional look at it. Alternatively, some black tape over the air bag light and drive carefully.

Airbag fuse


It could be the fuse but is more than likely a fault with some other part of the system. You'll need to scan the system and se wha the fault codes are. When the airbag light is on it won't deploy in an accident so be sure to get it checked asap.

Says service air bag what does this mean? does this mean the air bag will not work if hit or will it explode on its own?


The car has to be scanned to retrieve the codes to diagnose it....
but the lamp means the system is inoperative until the problem is fixed...(it will not deploy) not to worry, it will not deploy while driving....but on the flipside it will not deploy if you are involved in an accident either......some people prefer them inoperative,some people like the safety of them...choice is yours

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.

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off


To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back

to disable them,unplug the plugs after the battery has been disconnected for 2 minutes to avoid deployment. if you physically want to remove them,that is different,the one on the passenger side is part of the dash,a thin plastic line ruptures upon deployment and the airbag inflates.
the drivers airbag is disabled by the yellow connector at the bottom of the steering column

When the light is on all the time there is a problem in the air bag system. This is something you will want to take to a service center soon, as long as the light is on the air bags will not deploy in an accident.
