A little light after inhaling nitrogen? No. (7)

we all breath nitrogen ( atmosphere is 70% nitrogen) but to inhale nitrogen straight removes the oxygen from the lungs and blood stream
It is an extremely dangerous practice and if you do it again you will not be alive to ask fixya site a question

Aveo air bags did not deploy after accident

The SRS systems are usually designed to go off in a frontal impact. There are 2 sensors that need inertia on the same plane to make contact and set off the system. My guess is that she did not hit anything at the correct angle to set off the system. It will not deploy when hit from the sides or rear of the car. An air bag will only increase your survivability by 4% over a lap belt/shoulder harness which gives you about 44% in an otherwise fatal accident. Lesson is always wear your belts. And say a prayer to thank god she is alive.

My ex husband was in a roll over car accident in his 2006 ford fusion going 70 mph and his air bags didnt deploy. is there a recall on those or does he have a possible case for his injuries?

Front air bags are not designed to deploy in side impact, rear impact or rollover crashes.There are several reasons why your air bag may not have deployed during a crash. The first reason is that perhaps your crash is not the type of accident where air bag deployment would be helpful. For frontal air bags, this includes many, but not all, side impacts, rear impacts and rollovers. This category also includes minor accidents in which the driver and front passenger (if there was one) did not suffer any significant injuries requiring medical treatment. Many people do not realize there are a lot of side air bags that do not deploy during a rollover accident, even when the vehicle rolls onto its side. That is because those side air bags do not include an appropriate crash sensor that can detect rollover crashes.

How to replace air bag

Hi Chris,

The hardest part of replacing airbags, is doing it safely. An unanchored air bag prematurely detonated can do a lot of damage. That includes injuries of a fatal nature.

After over 700 extractions without an accident, I've compiled a short list of things you NEED to know before handling air bag.

Click Here for the tips section concerning airbags. Following the rules in that link does not make them safe, it means they may be handled with higher degree of safety.

Read them. Re-read them.

Then comment back and describe what you want to do. Start with which air bag...

Best regards

My 1994 lincoln town car keeps blowing fuses for air bags?

the air compressor is probably bad, there are companies that sell kits to eleminate the compressors and air bags with springs. I have used a few and they work ok.

How do I override the rear air bags?

Well, I can't speak for anyone else but this is a question that would just plain be bad to answer. I assume you are talking about the rear side SRS (Supplemental Restraint System). If this is the case, any attempt to override them could easily result in several bad effects. 1) You could damage the system, causing the bags to inflate, possibly injuring yourself or others in the process of trying. 2) You could easily damage the entire system causing none of the air bags to work, thus risking serious injury in an accident. 3) In the event you did succeed in disabling the system or not, any injury incurred as a result of trying to or succeeding in disabling the air bags could be construed to be the liability of a person(s) responsible for telling you how to do so. My recommendation is to leave them alone for your own safety and that of others. If you are concerned about injury to children in the rear seats here's a link to an article that explains some research about them.

Side air bags produce much less risk to your children(s) well being than regular frontal air bags.

Not that it's up to me to decide for other people, but I really caution anyone who is considering giving a solution to this problem. You can be held accountable for helping someone to injure themselves or others. A mechanic here in New York State was recently fined, lost his license to work as a mechanic, lost his garage and his home, and even served a short sentence. The reason? He informed a young man that it was ok to use a compression fitting to repair a damaged brake line in his trans am. As a result the young man blew the compression fitting doing over 80 mph and ran over a young girl getting off of a school bus. The young man driving the car was exonerated of all charges, and the mechanic was held liable for the death of the child, even though speed and wrecklessness contributed more to the accident.

I'd just hate to see anyone injured as a result of something like this.
