RepairPal Expert Overview on January 12, 2017

The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.

The passenger frontal air bag may not deploy as needed in a crash due to a fault within the Occupant Classification System (OCS). The OCS may not properly detect an adult in the passenger front seat, instead classifying the passenger as a child. When the OCS does this, it prevents the passenger frontal air bag from deploying, attempting to protect child occupants. As a result, there is an increased risk of injury to adult passengers.
