It should activate whether its a bang on the front or rear that's the idea behind it-have it scanned for code/s also is the ABS light lit before the bang-if so its inoperative-won't come on-

Air bags are for frontal or side impact if equipped with side air bags.

Sensors attached to front or side of vehicle should detect impact before the air bags are deployed.
