Let's learn how a car airbag safety systems works, shall we? An automotive
airbag safety system is designed to help keep passengers safe in the event of an
accident by inflating itself when a car strikes an object at speeds above 8 to
14 MPH, and then automatically deflating at temperatures of 200°F
in case of fire.
If an airbag warning light is on while driving the airbag safety system has
been disabled and will not activate in the event of an accident which is
dangerous. Your vehicle goes through a diagnostic check to ensure the system is operational, if
the computer detects a problem it will shut down the system while illuminating
the airbag warning light.

The passenger side airbag operates in much of the same manner as the drivers
side with the exception of a weight sensor located in the passenger seat which
detects the presents of a person or infant sitting in the seat. The technology
behind the infant detection has been advanced throughout the automotive industry
with the use of weight sensors telling the system if someone is sitting in the
seat weighing 75 pounds or less which automatically disables the passenger side.
