All you can really do is visually inspect the vehicle for things that were damaged I would say the front crash sensors definitely and any their bags that were deployed.It's tricky to do airbag repairs because the airbag module doesn't only have a part number but as was called the color code the color code is very often not listed on websites and you won't be able to know what the color code is until you pull it out of your donor car and the airbags need to match the airbag module properly or they'll throw a false. Very often people don't want to Zelda module without selling all the bags with it. Technically you don't need to replace the airbag module and less after you've replaced all of the faulty component you cannot clear the crash data for the module if that happens then you need to replace it.If you don't already have one I would recommend you buy the scan tool from Rosstech.com called VCDS, is by far the best scan tool on the market and one of the cheapest even dealership technicians tend to use it when they're not working on warranty work you're going to need it to get the coating out of the original airbag module and other things.If I've answered your questions your satisfaction please remember to hit accept next to my name because that is the only way that I'm compensated for my time on this site. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask, you can ask further questions about this topic even after hitting accept.

what about the power being cut off to engine in a crash? Is there a way to flash system to get power back to engine?
You need the scan tool that I mentioned to clear faults. Some Vehicles actually have a pyrotechnic fusible link that the airbag module sets off some Vehicles just have a computer that shuts that part of the system off and when you clear faults it just turns back on.
