Question about BMW 525

1 Answer

My car was wrecked and the airbag deployed. The shop has not installed the airbag yet and finds that the car won't start. Is it possible that the airbag installation is preventing the car from starting? The battery is fully charged as well. Thanks.

No...Your car doesnt start because if another problem.
Does your engine turn over?If it doesnt then its your starter motor...
Best thing to do is to have diagnosed to determine error codes .Then you will know why it doesnt start ..

2009 bmw x6 :collision deployed passenger airbag on dashboard. Can i replace the airbag without changing/replacing the dasboard?


the dash pad -upper section to windshield shouldnt have to be unless damaged by deployment the other 3 sections -airbag location the part in line with the ducting and the knee area usually are damaged during deployment and unless you have been trained ir have working knowledge if the air bag system would have a certified trusted auto body shop survey the damage and advise if any under dash damage is present --they can also show a dash break down diagram as well as correctly installing replacement airbag

Airbags have deployed. Car will not crank


What is the reason for the deployment of the airbags , did you hit the car or they open with no reason. If you hit the car there is fail safe mechanism to stop the engine automatically.

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..

I hit a deer and airbag didn't deploy but airbag light is on. I did smell a burning smell that the owners manual said would accompany airbag deployment. Could my airbags pop out at any moment and is it...


Are you sure the smell was not deer meat on the radiator?
No one can honestly say its safe to drive and that an airbag won't suddenly deploy. Best thing to do is have it scanned to see why the light is on. Most shops will have a scanner that should work for this (save you the high cost of a dealer). The light may just be on because there is crash data stored in the SRS module and it may need be replaced.

I have a 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis with 69000mi. The airbag light starts flashing and then goes steady. What is the problem? Just started this a few days ago.


Most likely it is a sensor behind the front bumper. Sometimes if you can get to them and spray them with WD40 they will behave. It can also mean the pressure pak is bad on the Airbag and that it will never deploy. These things make me nervous. On this item you are better off with a Body shop looking at it if WD40 does not help.

A Body shop is better because they replace Airbags that were deployed in the cars they are repairing. The Body shop also replaces the sensors damaged in a wreck. Mainline mechanics generally work in a separate area of a Dealership and the Body shop guys work in their own area.

1994 dodge spirit airbag reset


Airbags should only be installed by a qualified airbag technician after deployment. I HIGHLY suggest you do not try this yourself. If the airbag deployed due to impact the sensors in the point of impact need to be replaced. If you install the SRS incorrectly you may start the car and get a face full of safety. DON'T DO THIS YOURSELF and anyone who suggests you do is not qualified to call himself a responsible technician.
