Front impact crash & airbag did not diploy


Airbags have specific criteria for deployment that determines whether impact was severe enough to deploy bags or whether only 1 stage deployment is needed or may decide impact was minor enough that deployment of airbags could potentially be more dangerous than the actual impact. For instance I was on the expressway last year going 65mph and someone rear ended me at over 100mph. Totaled my Ford Focus, her airbag did not deploy. Over certain speeds depending on the vehicle calibration, and airbag should never deploy. With an impact under a designated speed or over a designated speed a deployment can be dangerous. As long as your airbag light was not on before the crash I'd say your system was working properly and did not malfunction. If your airbag light ever comes on just keep in mind that any airbag malfunction will disable the system and turn on the light

My airbags deployed and now my seatbelts wont work. how do i fix them?


The seat belts have small airbag like devices in them in the retractor mechanism. These go off like airbags when you are in a crash to ensure you stay tightly in your seat. Think of it like what happens if you pull the seat belt too quickly and it stops movement. You will need to replace the whole seat belt unit if this is the case.

I hit a ditch and both my airbags deployed and now i cant move my seat belts


inside your seatbelts there are small explosives known as pre-tensioners, when you crash these pre tensioners go off and pull you back into the seat as part of the SRS( supplemented restraint system) which means that aswel as new airbags you also need new seatbelts for your car.

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.
