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.
Sure you CAN. The question is should you? Only you can answer that.
There has been a great deal of talk about the air bag problem but experts are saying do not disarm the airbags because you are more likely to have problems without them.
how do you change a fog light in a 2006 Kia Sportage? It is in such a tight spot a normal sized man hand will not fit into the space. Can it be replaced without removing the bumper?????
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.
airbags are important because if you get in to a crash you can die without an airbag and its also used for cushion when it happens
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.
Without a seat belt, you could end up hitting the dash between the airbags.
Nope, but it does have great crash test ratings without them
No. There are federal regulations mandating that cars sold/traded in the US past a certain year must have seat belts and airbags. If you were sold a car(1993ish or higher) and it doesn't have an airbag then chances are the vehicle was totaled and repaired. If the car was built before airbags were required by law, then the car can be sold without airbags.
I think it means your car is junk. Because without airbags its pretty dangerous, though I'm no engineer. Have it checked out at the car dealership.
the inertia switch locks the ignition. this can occur without the airbags being deployed. if your car wont start it is a good possibility that the inertia switch has locked the ignition. the switch is usually located on the passenger side of the vehicle behind the kick panel on the right side
Yes...this is because the skin of an orange contains many tiny airbags. The airbags act like bubble wrap and keep the orange floating. However, after the orange has been peeled, there are no airbags. Therefore, the orange sinks.
