The impact probably initiated a sensor on the front of the vehicle. Find a shop that deals with airbags and have them check all the sensors' status. Most likely you will need to replace the front two.

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.

Airbag light flashing 5-2


this indicates that the air bag solenoid circuit has failed it's test. which means you need to have the air bag circuitry checked. since this is a safety feature, and you could cause the air bag to inflate by accident. I will only recommend taking it to a qualified mechanic.

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.

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

Car Accident and the Airbags Didn't Deploy


first you need to know if the air bag light was coming on before the accident, if the light was coming on then the car should be fixed before in order to get the air bags to work propelly, also were did you buy the car from? was this a new car purchased? or did you buy it used at small dealer ? because if it was new or bought used from a dealer, they are supposed to do an inspection safety check on every car before they can sell it to the public, also for what i understand the air bag module stores a lot of information after an accident, like what speed was the car going, if he did stop or acerelate the car at time of accident, it stores lost of information. and to be honest with you i don't know if the car can save this information with the air bag previously on, but ask the police department or the investigators to pull the information from the air bag module wich is like a black box installed on air planes, something similar, i hope and you stiil have the car or acces to it, but you right if he got out the caR at moment of firts impact, he would be here now, but that's just my way to think or imajine, since i was not there, i hope and this information help, and if you trying to sue somebody, make sure to try to sue the bigest company involve in this deal because i belive there will be only 1 sue case by case, you better get some legal help since i'm not an attorney, and i will aprecciate you ranking to my answer since that will really help my score
