The sensors on the 01-04's are on the insides of the fender wells (the two i know of)justinb said:Where are the airbag sensors located? What is the procedure for removing the front bumper?
I've never disconnected my battery, and nothing has happened yet...BLT2RCKTRD said:Just make sure you disconnect the battery before taking the bumper off. Besides that you must have to hit two sensors a once on most abs systems, while going atleast 12-28 mph depending on the system.
I have never seen anything airbag related anywhere near the stock front bumpers. The sensors I have seen are on the inner fenders. But what do I know, I don't even have working airbags. :xdevil:BLT2RCKTRD said:I am not saying anything will happen, but it if you disconnect the battery the air bag won't go off.

The airbag system is backed up by a capacitor. If you disconnect the battery, let it sit for a few minutes to ensure it fully discharges. Also, the airbag sensors a g-force sensitive. It takes so many g's to make them deploy. I forget how many but consider how many g's you experience going from 35 or 40mph to 0 mph in less than 1 second and you get the idea.tercel89 said:so is the airbag system totally relying on electricity for its power? i thought it would still work if the battery was disconnected.
i too want to take mine out , but i am afraid that it will go off .If it does , then the passenger-side one will break the winshield, and i dont want that! I have worked so many crash's and seen people that would have been fine if they hadnt gotten zapped by the bags. I love seatbelts , but not too sure of these bags.
