Should start even with airbags out but there is a fuel pump inertia switch fitted. If the vehicl has has a big enough shunt to deploy airbags, chances are its triggered the switch too. Firts tell tale is when you put ignition on the fuel pump should buzz, if not then find switch. the switch is usually either RED or Black rubber button located in one of the kick panels of under the bonnet on the bulk head.Press it down and it should click. Then car will start.

Is it legal to sell a car without replacing deployed airbags?

nope as long as u notify the buyer that it has a deployrd air bag Legally you may be able to sell the car if you are not a dealer and you notify the buyer that the air bag is not functioning. But make sure you have a written release that the buyer and seller signs, indicating the SRS is not functional. Have this notarized and witnessed. Otherwise you may end up in a lawsuit. Personally, I would not take that chance, and would never sell a vehicle with the SRS deployed. Just not worth the risk of the buyer having an accident and then suing you for injuries he sustained due to the fact the air bag did not deploy. It has happened before and will happen again. Be smart and do not sell this car without repairing the SRS.

Working on the SRS is best left to a professional. Serious injury can occur when working on any system related to the air bags. If the air bag deployed then you may very well need to replace one or more of the sensors. Install the air bag without replacing a sensor that needs replacing, and the air bag could deploy prematurely.

Why is the SRS light on in your 1995 Honda civic ex?

The SRS light refers to the airbags, have you bought this car used or new? If the car has been wrecked and the airbags have been deployed and it has been fixed back without the air bags or the sensors to the airbags has not been replaced or the computer has not been reset to clear the SRS light out after it has been repaired. That's my experience with these lights staying on. If it has been repaired correctly with the airbag system then all you need to do is go to a dealer or someone with a computer and let them hook it up and reset the SRS light and you should be good to go that's if the new air bag system and sensors have been installed correctly.

Does Utica National insurance continue coverage if deployed airbags are not replaced?

No. I can assure you that removing safety devices will void your insurance as well as make you personally liable for injuries caused to anyone in the vehicle due to your actions or lack of action. Why would you ever consider not having the airbags replaced on your vehicle. This is not something you want to do. If you have an accident and the airbags are not in the vehicle the insurance company will perform and exhaustive investigation and when they prove that is was your doing the claim will be denied and you will be liable for the claim out of pocket. Don't do this.AnswerAny modification; wheels, tires, suspension, safety equipment etc that affects the performance, handling or safety of a vehicle must be reported to the insurance company when it occurs. It is then up to the insurance company to either accept, or reject whether the insurance in it's present form covers the changes, or whether the risk has to be reassessed. If there is a model of the car which does not have airbags, the precident is made. That said it is still most unlikely, without extenuating circumstances, that choosing not to reinstall airbags would be acceptable to any insurer.

Will air bags deploy without seat belt?

Yes, the air bag will still deploy even when the seat-belt is not buckled.

How do you file taxes for a deployed solder?

You may only file taxes for a deployed soldier if. A) you have a power of Attorney, specifically allowing it. B) you are the Head of Household over the deployed soldier. C) You are the deployed soldier. A general power of attorney does give you the right to file a tax return in the service members name, and the military does provide free tax filing overseas. The deployed service member may also defer filing his taxes until after he returns from deployment if he so chooses without any penalties from the IRS. -Morreale, Keith D. SGT US Army
