2007 malibu impact sensor location

I have a 2007 malibu that had a side impact and after replacing the curtain airbags and resetting the computer I am still getting an impact sensor warning. I am wondering if there is any other impact sensors that might have been set off besides the one near the hood latch?

SOURCE: hood latch

Yup mine did the same thing it needs to be oiled use a spray oil and also if it is cold were you are the hood latch cable can stick open so spray the cable inside at the latch Lockdicer will help for cold days. If your latch is hard to pull <latch handle> don't force it. It will break so if the car will start warm the car up first this will melt the ice. The sceeching is the powersteering pump check the fluid if low if it is not low then it is your pump not to hard to replace. Hope this helps

We have the same problem with our malibu. What I found is that the hood release handle inside the car gets stuck on the housing around the driver's side feet. Check if your handle is getting stuck there too because I thought for the longest time that the cable was the problem.

SOURCE: 2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS airbag problems

The passenger side airbag is a lot easier then driver side. Take the glove box out and you will see two 10mm bolts holding it in place. When you open the passenger side front door, remove the panel on the side of the dash and you will see yellow connectors.The 1 closest to the front is attached to the air bag, it is clipped into the frame. Just pull it loose and take it out and your done. For the Driver side, it takes a skinny T27 to remove the two star bolts, then just disconnect the horn red clip and ground and install new airbag. The module is located under the passenger seat, underneath the carpet. Kinda stupid but thats where its at. You also need to replace the front impact sensor located behind the grille on the back side of the metal bar to each side. Follow the hood latch down. Also just to make sure, you know to disconnect the battery before you do all this. You don't want new airbags to accidentally deploy.

SOURCE: Oxygen sensor replacement

It's something you can with simple tools, you have four O2 sensors. Your going to have to get the truck rescanned or if you have the DTC code, you can find out which O2 sensor has gone bad so you can replace it. Your going to have Two upstream O2 sensors on each exhaust bank, one O2 sensor before the Catalytic Converter, and the last one after the Catalytic Converter. Its like replacing a Spark plug and you can pick up the O2 sensor at any large Auto Parts store with a can of WD 40. Just unclip the wire leads to the O2 sensor and then with a O2 sensor socket or hint close end wrench and hammer, you can remove the O2 sensor from the exhaust pipe. Good luck and be safe.

Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

Where is the airbag sensor located at


There are indeed 5 airbag sensors, two front impact sensors, 2 side impact sensors (only if your jeep has the optional side curtain airbags) and an internal impact sensor in the airbag control unit. So you need to have it scanned to know which sensor is faulty.

Where is the sensor for the airbag on a yukon 2005 located at on the truck


{: ) There are many components in the airbag system of a vehicle and each one plays a distinct function in order to ensure a reliable protection, and timely deployments of the airbag in cases of extreme collisions.
You may be referring to the front and side impact sensors. These sensors are always on the front lines, meaning they usually are the first, the closest, and receives the most impact in collision situations.
The front impact sensors (left and right) are located on the front frame crossmember.
The right side impact sensor is located under the right front door trim near the lower rear of the door frame. The left side impact sensor is located under the left front door trim near the lower rear of the door frame.

Airbag locations


In the steering wheel and passenger side dash.Due to the age of the vehicle probably doesn't have the curtain "side" airbags.The airbags were designed primarily for head on collisions. Here is some useful information to why the may have not deployed courtesy of http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/dec2001/collision.htm
How Air Bags Work To have a frontal (driver or passenger) air bag deploy, certain criteria must be met. One of these criteria is that the frontal impact must be within a 60-degree window, occurring within 30 degrees from the vehicle's centerline. Another key element is that the crash forces are equivalent to a head-on collision with an immovable barrier at 10-15 miles per hour. Because a typical automobile accident only lasts about 0.125 (1/8th) of a second, air bags deploy within 15 to 20ms after the initial crash impact. To create a protective cushion between the occupant and the vehicle's interior, the air bag inflates at speeds up to 200 mph within approximately 30ms after impact. This allows the occupant to contact a fully inflated bag within approximately 45 to 50ms after the initial crash impact. Approximately 100ms after impact the bag deflates.

Where are the airbag sensors on a 2002 Malibu? Daughter ran off road, hit ditch & did damage to right front from headlight down....both airbags deployed...is that normal?


Hi, the impact sensors for the air bags are usually located between the headlights more or less at the lowest point of the headlights. It is possible that the air bags will deploy as the impact sensors work with vibration. If the vibration is big enough to activate the sensor the air bags will deploy.
