Hyundai Tucson: Why didn’t My Airbag Go Off In a Collision? / Airbag collision sensors


To reduce the risk of an airbag deploying unexpectedly and causing serious injury or death:

  • Do not hit or allow any objects to impact the locations where airbags or sensors are installed.
  • Do not perform maintenance on or around the airbag sensors. If the location or angle of the sensors is changed, the airbags may deploy when they should not or may not deploy.
  • Do not install bumper guards with non genuine Hyundai or non-equivalent parts. It may adversely affect the collision and airbag deployment performance.
  • Move the ignition switch to the OFF or ACC position and wait for 3 minutes before the vehicle is towed to prevent unintended airbag deployment.
  • Have all airbag repairs are conducted by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
