Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 3 years ago
There are no recalls or common issues with reported airbag non-deployments. But I can tell you that the car will not deploy a airbag if the module does not determine a airbag is needed in a event of a crash. The seat belts can actually tension your body to keep you in the seat. And there are 2 stages to the airbags so depending on how severe the crash depends on how hard and fast the airbags will deploy. So not all crashes will have a airbag deploy. Now if there is a srs lamp on due to a fault , the faulty circuit will not deploy as a safety , the module actually turns off that circuit so no accidental deployments happen. Hope this information helps , Please take a second and click the box and rate my service GOOD OR EXCELLENT SERVICE if you feel I have been helpful and please request me in the future. If you feel I have not been helpful please DO NOT RATE BAD OR POOR AND WASTE YOUR MONEY , I will opt out to see if another expert can provide more or better assistance so you're not wasting your money!!. Thanks for choosing just answer. Lou. also , if you feel i deserve one , BONUSES are GREATLY APPRECIATED ! 😉
