Airbag Service Chicago, IL

Airbags have drastically changed vehicle safety since their invention, but they can only help protect you if they are working properly. 

How Do Airbags Work?

Airbags are deployed in a four step process. First, either the front, side or overhead sensors installed in your vehicle detects the impact from a crash. Next, a chemical canister ejects pellets into the airbag, producing nitrogen gas that inflates the bag. The airbag helps soften the impact of the crash on the passengers’ heads and chests. Lastly, the airbag slowly deflates following the crash and is no longer useful. 

Why Is My Airbag Light On?

If your airbag light is on, you may not be protected from a possible car accident and should contact Hollywood Services immediately for new auto parts in 60659. The airbag light could mean either your airbags, seatbelts or the computers managing the safety electronics are malfunctioning. Service from one of our licensed airbag technicians will ensure your car is safe to continue driving. 

Replacement Airbags

Airbags are designed for single use, meaning they need to be replaced after they are deployed in a car crash. One of our service technicians can replace your old airbags with new auto parts in 60659 in order to keep yourself and passengers safe. 

Airbag Safety 

Airbags are designed to strike the careful balance between deploying fast enough to prevent injury and deploying not too fast to cause injury. That being said there are important safety precautions to adhere to when riding in a car. Seatbelts should always be properly worn as your first line of defense.

Adult Safety

Airbags can cause injury if you are seated too close when they are deployed. While still being able to reach the pedals, you should sit at least 10 inches away from the steering wheel. Sitting as far as you can from the steering wheel, means you are less likely to be injured by the force of the airbag or come in contact with the dashboard. 

Child Safety

Children should never sit in the front seat of a vehicle since they are especially vulnerable to injury. Due to their small stature, a child can be killed by the force of an airbag. Instead, a child should be placed in the back with a car seat. Once a child is 4 feet and 9 inches tall, they can use the back seat without a car seat.
