Hyundai Ioniq: Air bag - Advanced supplemental restraint system / Why Didn't My Air Bag Go Off in a Collision?

Hyundai Ioniq (AE) 2017-2021 Owner's Manual / Safety system of your vehicle / Air bag - Advanced supplemental restraint system / Why Didn't My Air Bag Go Off in a Collision?

Air bags are not designed to inflate in every collision. There are certain types of accidents in which the air bag would not be expected to provide additional protection. These include rear impacts, second or third collisions in multiple impact accidents, as well as low speed impacts. Damage to the vehicle indicates a collision energy absorption, and is not an indicator of whether or not an air bag should have inflated.

Air bag collision sensors

WARNING

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.
  • Place the Engine Start/Stop button in 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.

Adjust the steering wheel so it points toward your chest, not toward your face. Make sure you can see the instrument cluster warning lights and gauges. After adjusting, push the steering wheel both up and down to be certain it is locked in position. Always adjust the position of the steering wheel before driving.
