Hahaha, that reminds me of the movie Planes, Trains and Automobiles where John Candy takes the chrysler convertable down the wrong way of a highway and drives between two semi's. The car is all mangled and beaten up and he says "oh, this'll buff right out, they'll never know"Originally posted by Firespirit@Aug 16 2004, 08:27 PM
Hm, that'll buff right out!
Are you retarded or something? :headscratch: The impact doesn't cut the wiring in a side impact. The reason the air bag doesn't deploy is because all the force of the impact is coming sideways and the sensors that trigger the airbags are front to back. If the air bag deployed in a side impact while your body is moving sideways from the impact, the airbag would be giving you no help, and would likely produce MORE damage than if hadn't gone off. That was why they came up with side impact air bags. AND, where are they located? THAT'S RIGHT, on the side.Originally posted by crackhead@Aug 16 2004, 09:06 PM
well stupied need to know that if you get a side impact first that cuts the wiring then the air bag will not deploy.

There is a lot of logic and programming that goes into firing the airbag. It is asenine to simply say "The airbag failed to deploy". No, the airbag didn't deploy. Was it supposed to given the input the control modules received? Did something override the programming? Was power somehow cut to the device? Was the driving not wearing a seatbelt (and thus causing a safety override of the bag - don't know if this occurs in a Taurus or not)? It gets much more complicated than simply saying "The airbag failed." Just my 2 cents as a programmer.
