72 Seats and Restraints
A crash severe enough to
inflate the airbags may have
also damaged important
functions in the vehicle, such
as the fuel system, brake
and steering systems, etc.
Even if the vehicle appears
to be drivable after a
moderate crash, there may
be concealed damage that
could make it difficult to
safely operate the vehicle.
Use caution if you should
attempt to restart the
engine after a crash has
In many crashes severe
enough to inflate the airbag,
windshields are broken by
vehicle deformation. Additional
windshield breakage may also
occur from the front outboard
passenger airbag.
Airbags are designed to
inflate only once. After an
airbag inflates, you will need
some new parts for the
airbag system. If you do not
get them, the airbag system
will not be there to help
protect you in another crash.
A new system will include
airbag modules and possibly
other parts. The service
manual for the vehicle
covers the need to replace
other parts.
The vehicle has a crash
sensing and diagnostic
module which records
information after a crash.

Let only qualified technicians
work on the airbag system.
Improper service can mean
that an airbag system will
not work properly. See your
dealer for service.
