Hi LilRed,

I spent some time in a salvage yard, they can be a less expensive alternative source for replacing airbags. I saw many people asking for info on their replacement, so I published in the Tips and Tricks section.
I've included the link for you.


Click here for the procedure to replace airbags and the precautions you absolutely need to know prior to attempting the procedure.

Do take the precautions seriously.
And if you think about it, please take a moment to rate.
Best regards
Mike

I was t-boned in my 2005 monte carlo and my air bags did not deploy. Why?


You should be very happy that it did not deploy as that is probably why you are here today to write this question. Airbags will generally only deploy in a severe collision where there is a high probability of serious injury or a fatality. In your case it obviously was not severe enough to seriously hurt you. Be thankful and send the car manufacturer a thank you letter for building a car that helped you survive.

Airbag problem and light on could it just deploy while I am driving


No.. If air bag light is on, it means the airbag system is shut down and will NOT deploy in the event of a collission. You will need to have the codes scanned for the airbag system to determine the problem and repair as necessary

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..

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

Airbag light recently came on? 2004 hyundai tiburon


It should come on when you first start the car, then go off after a few seconds (to show that the lamp is working). If it stays on, you have a problem somewhere in the system. It could be the sensor behind the front bumper, it could be a loose wire or bad connection to the airbag itself. You need to take this to your dealer (or other trusted repair shop) and have it repaired, this is not a do-it-yourself job. If the repairs are not done correctly, it could cause the airbag to deploy when it should not (causing much damage) or not deploy when it should (adding to your injuries in a crash.) The lamp indicates that the airbag will (most likely) not deploy in a collision.

I started my 07 escalade esv in the morning about 1 weak ago and the service airbag light apeared and i was hoping it wold just go away in time but it dident i have about 120.000k in the car any cheap...


its better to go to service center and diagnostic tool will tell you which of your sensors or airbag module have the problem, i wish that no deployment happen because if deployed is commanded you will change the airbag main control module, repair acording to the dtc codes and diagnostic aid, if the problem is module such as side airbag, curtain, drivers airbag or the passenger airbag, you may connect the two wire by 2.2 ohms resistor 2watts. if you want little cost but the disadvantage is, what ever happen in your car, there is no airbag deployment even the computer will command to deploy in case of accident, my suggestion to you is not advisable but its about you
