    So from the look of my pick can you tell me if it might of been a malfunction or maybe the hit wasn't as hard as I thought of it to be

  • it's really hard to tell from the picture that you have but it doesn't look to me as if you were going fast enough for the sensors to take effect

  • the airbag sensors are mainly for a front end collision coming from directly in front or behind unless they have side curtain airbags but to be hit on the front quarter panel the way you were it seems to me that they would have not been impacted to the point of deployment ....hope this helps

Air bags release based on vectors and velocity. If you have a vector angle that is not acute or a velocity that is too low, the bags wont deploy.

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

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..

The airbag light is on, ever and I don't know how reset it.


the airbag light is one warning light not to mess with. take it to a dealer or shop that can check it out to see if the impact sensor is bad or if the airbag is bad. either way you will want it to work if you are in an accident and i would tend to this one right away. if the cost of fixing it exceeds your budget atleast you will know the bag doesnt work and have elected to take the risk.

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.

2004 pacifica impact sensors, airbags


you may not always have to replace sensors, but you will have to change the airbag module (usually under front seat, sometimes in middle of dash) To remove the passenger airbag you have to take out the dash.

2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS airbag problems


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.

1994 dodge spirit airbag reset


Airbags should only be installed by a qualified airbag technician after deployment. I HIGHLY suggest you do not try this yourself. If the airbag deployed due to impact the sensors in the point of impact need to be replaced. If you install the SRS incorrectly you may start the car and get a face full of safety. DON'T DO THIS YOURSELF and anyone who suggests you do is not qualified to call himself a responsible technician.

How to Replace Air Bags for a 1999 HondaAccord


Hey there Henry,

Sorry to hear about your accident. Hope everyone is ok.
I worked at a wrecking yard where I pulled hundreds of airbags. I want you to understand, they can be dangerous if handled improperly.

Some warnings before you begin. Take these Seriously!!!
  • Alway wear safety glasses.
  • Control the environment - no kids, pets, people horsing around.
  • Disconnect the negative battery terminal. After you are done, make sure no one is inside the vehicle when you reconnect the battery. If your vehicle has an anti-theft system, you'll need to get your activation codes to reset your sound system.
  • Do not use solvents to clean your airbags. They may ignite if accidentally deployed. Use only a damp cloth.
  • Airbags are sensitive to heat in excess of 190 degrees F. Store them accordingly.
  • Airbags are sensitive to impact - handle them carefully
  • Airbags are sensitive to static electricity - ground yourself, Spray the seat and rug with fabric softener (anti-static - ever heard the term 'static cling')
  • Be safe
The procedures are pretty simple

Drivers Side:
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Loosen and remove the retaining screws from behind the steering wheel. Rotate the wheel as needed to access the screws. You may need to purchase new retaining screws in advance to install the new bag.
  • Return the wheel to the straight ahead position.
  • Lift the airbag assembly out and disconnect the wiring connector from the rear of the unit.
  • Unwrap the new airbag (carefully).
  • Connect the the wiring connector and seat the airbag into the steering wheel. Be sure the wire doesn't get pinched.
  • Install the new retaining screws and tighten them securely.
Passenger side:
  • Loosen and remove the passenger side dash retaining screws
  • Move it downward to release the retaining clips and remove.
  • Unscrew the airbag retaining screws along the edge of the airbag.
  • Move the airbag assembly downward the release it fom its mounting pegs.
  • Remove the airbag from the dash, disconnecting the wire as soon as you are able. I believe your model has mounting guides, if so save them.
  • If there were guides, place them back into the mounting frame.
  • Position the airbag over the mounting frame and reconnect the wiring connector.
  • Mount the new airbag, securely tighten the retaining screws.
  • Remount the dash and screw it back in.
  • Make sure nobody is in the car
  • Reconnect the battery.
All done

One more time, be serious, be careful, be safe.

I hope this helps
Mike
