Hyundai Genesis: Why Didn’t My Air Bag Go Off in a Collision? (Air bags are not designed to inflate in every collision.) / Air bag collision sensors


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

  • Do not hit or allow any objects to impact the locations where air bags or sensors are installed.
  • Do not perform maintenance on or around the air bag sensors. If the location or angle of the sensors is altered, the air bags may deploy when they should not or may not deploy when they should.
  • Do not install bumper guards or replace the bumper with a non-genuine HYUNDAI parts. This may adversely affect the collision and air bag deployment performance.
  • Press the Engine Start/Stop button to the OFF or ACC position when the vehicle is being towed to prevent inadvertent air bag deployment.
  • Have all air bag repairs conducted by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
