Question about 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe

1 Answer

I had a front end car collision in my 2002 chevrloet cavalier in which the airbags deployed and the horn would not stop going off. Someone who pulled over to help me did something to make the horn stop going off that I am unaware of and then my car would not even turn on at all (no electricity or anything). Is there a wire or connection that I can manually reconnect or something to restart my car and what was done to make the horn stop going off after my wreck?

It sounds like they disconnected the battery. I would check to make sure that both the positive and the negative cables are connected.

Good Luck!

Why will my 1997 honda accord not start after front end collision and airbag deployment?


There are sensors connected to the airbag circuit that will prevent the car from starting after a deployment. You will need to replace the airbag and have the computer reset by a technician to clear this.

We had two separate accidents involving a deer the airbags never deploy in neither collision. How do i disconnect them?


They didn't deploy cause you hit a deer, the airbags sensors need to get a gforce reading to deploy, hitting a deer ksnt enough to do it

2005 Cavalier horn does not work. Stearing wheel airbag missing?


no connection between air bag and horn operation
the air bag is in a section but that whole section presses to activate the horn
can be on either side bottom or top will work the horn
probably right that there is no air bag
you will have to remove the wheel to check the horn contact under the center bit
check for a horn relay operation first

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 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.

Why does my horn not work when i try and use it? what could the problem be


Either your horn fuse is blow, the horn itself is shot or the steering wheel switch is bad. It can only be one of those three things.

Have there been any unexplained air bag deployment in 2005 santa fe on the drivers side while in motion. my husband was driving and he said the air bag deployed and then he hit a car in front of him. do...


http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/ is the website I checked for your car and found no reference to this issue. There are reports of airbag deployments with no collisions, although they are rare. The computer in your car is capable of displaying the deployment, and may show which sensor in the front if any caused it to deploy (collision first/deployment second) or if no sensor signal (deployment first / collision second) is logged. Whatever the outcome, you will need a specialist in data extraction to achieve this.

Your horn is located in front of driver side wheel well. You may be able to see if from looking up under the car. Or you may need to remove the wheel well cover to get to the horn.
