Airbag Control Sensor Under The Centre Consol

 

Airbag Control SensorThe control module monitors mechanical or electronic crash sensors that respond to the sudden deceleration of an impact. When an impact is detected, the processor activates the pretensioner and then the airbag.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Airbag Crash Sensor

After a crash a faulty sensor can cause the airbag light to stay on or in some cars internal sensors can suffer from water damage under the carpet, this also causing an airbag light problem.

Side airbags can be in the seat or in the door and even in the roof above the head, the picture above is a BMW airbag in the drivers door with the door trim removed.

Front car airbags operate in a severe frontal collision. Crash sensors detect the sudden reduction in speed and send a signal to the airbag inflator which fills the airbag with a gas. Full inflation occurs faster than the blink of an eye. The airbag begins to deflate instantly, in a controlled way, to cushion the impact.

Clock springs play a critical role in driver safety, located inside the steering wheel, clock springs provide transmission of electrical signals and power between the fixed steering column and the rotating airbag unit inside the steering wheel. Initially clock springs provided 2 electric lines for airbag applications, today they are highly advanced multifunctional units accommodating the increasing functionality being added to steering wheels.  The clock spring is a common fault for the airbag light to stay on and must be replaced before the airbag light can be reset.
