    Bad switches, you say? The fact the driver bag didn't fire is telling. If it was one of the sensors that triggered, both the driver and passenger would have gone off. The control module shouldn't have fired off just one, either. Back then it was an all or nothing algorithm. I think Ford used a sensor in the passenger seat. And only when someone was in that seat, would the airbag deploy. I supposes a faulty switch could trigger the bag. NHTSA's site is down for maintenance, so I can't look it up, but didn't see airbags on other places.

    Plus, nobody got hurt, the car is 17 years old, and who cares.

    The way the buyers were treating me, you'd've thought Mom was hanging by a thread in the ICU. But I appreciate you doing some research, pointing me in the right direction.
