Busted radiator

Did the air bags deploy?
If not then your frame should be ok. The impact wasn't enough to bend the frame.
If your air bags did deploy. Then your frame could have damage. I recommend taking it to a collision center near you to have it checked.

Car horn not working

Often times when the air bags deploy the horn buttons are damaged,the quick solution would be to install a push button to ground the horn wire. Just hook one side of the button to ground and the other to the horn wire.

I've been in a wreck the damage is fixed. I have a new airbag control module. I've been told I need to replace the "crash sensors" before installing the new airbag control module. Where are the Crash...

The crash sensors are located inside the computer the accelarometer would of been replaced if the computer was replaced. Or the air bag control modual. The clock spring would need to be replaced but the front magnetic sensors should be fine, they don't normally wear out. they can be damaged but the air bag warning light would flash if it was bad. And the air bag would still not go off unless the other condtions are met to make the bag deploy. The air control modual would have been replaced if it was done by a shop that is part of the service when the bags deploy. The crash sensors are a magnet with a steel ball and when the right speed is reached and the ball is let go from the metal o ring that it sits in it will deploy the first trigger the next trigger would be the acelorometer in the air control module and the impact would have to be strong enought to knock that ball loose as well to trigger the air bag.

Hit a deer and airbags deployed; some front end damage to vehicle; what do I need to do to replace airbags and get them functioning again? (especially with regards to airbag sensor)

the air bags are very costlly, like around 2,000-4,000 eachwith out labor. the sensors are a few hundred also. when you replace the air bags you should replace all of the sensors. very expensive. for that kind of money you could almost get a new van. using junk yard air bags i don't suggest. to risky.

I hit a telephone pole at the front end drivers side of the car. Airbags deployed. I wana know my chances of it being fixable.

I like your question. The airbag system is repairable with one or two new or repaired air bags (possibly a new sensor if the one by the radiator got bashed). You can Google or Ebay suppliers online. The amount of repair the front end of the car needs is a tougher question. What did the insurance company say it would cost? Did they total it?

330I drivers side airbag deployed and the car will not start

You triggered the impact sensor.(usually on or near the front bumper) It will need to be re-set or replaced, and obviously, you need to replace airbag.

Heater valve replaced and air bag missing

If the cars front end alignment is noticeably off since you gave the shop the car to work on, and the passenger air bag is missing, it sounds like they drove it and had an accident. Any evidence of damage or fresh paint anywhere? Another possibility is that they could have failed to disable the air bags, and while working on the car one deployed. They would have had to remove the deployed air bag, and replace the cover only. This wouldn't account for the alignment problem though. How did you determine the missing air bag, the indicator light is on? You need to check the car over carefully for any signs of accident damage. How long did they have your car in the shop?

if the impact is not that severe the bag will not go now a day it doesn't take much to damage the front ends.if your bag deployed it could have broke your nose which is better than being really hurt but a lite impact its better the bag did not deploy please rate this answer thanks.
