This talk, even if it is only in passing, about deactivating airbags by pulling a fuse is ridiculous! A person spends the better part of 5 lakhs (minimum) to by a car which is equipped with an airbag, and then, in the hope to save a few bucks, people give idea's on how to deactivate it!

In the recent Mumbai accident, the only survivor in the Swift lived because of the airbag. Can someone put a price on that? Also, can that car ever be repaired that one should worry about the costs related with replacing an airbag!

Guys, seriously, there may be some nut out there foolish enough to do this!

Arre Robin, relax boss, I was just pointing out a technicality. It's also true that many cars these days have the ABS and airbag circuit linked to the ECU. So if you take any of those fuses out, the car will not start.

Kya re heelntoe, reading Ayn Rand?

Well these days with airbags being available as an option on most hatches it would be useful to know what the replacement costs are. I assume that prices would have fallen compared to what's mentioned in previous posts.

when the airbags are deployed, the impact must be hard enough to damage the car to a large extent. only the cost of replacement of airbags will not make much sense.the car may even need to be written off in most cases.
