    I have never even seen an airbag go off just driving over a curb. I had a Pontiac Grand Am a few years ago. Great daily driver when you wanna save mileage. I had a few too many drinks and took right going like 50 and the tires broke loose. I went up a 4 or 5 inch curb and took down a picket fence and had no airbag blow on me. Hell smashed 3 rims and drove home on 2 flats.
    I do paint and body work (toyota certified)and have never even seen a bag blow over 5 to 7 mph. Hell Ive seen some smash front ends from 15 to 20 mph crashes with no bags blowing. I would recommend my usual airbag fix after you fix it(do it to almost all my cars) pull the airbag fuse. Pontiac can build a fast car but the jap cars have much better airbag sensors.

    wow I feel bad for you man. At least everything is fixable. I ran over a curb like that one time in a old daily driver that I had and man did it sound horrible..no airbag but the sound and jolt was pretty bad.....glad to see you didnt get hurt,airbags can cause some damage

    Yeah I would either pull the fuse or have the body shop put a new sensor in because after what happened with it blowing over a curb the sensor must be bad. just some more of GM's great long lasting electrical parts. Between that sensor, the great power windows, and the annoying electrical issues I have in my trailblazer I wonder if one day neither car will start and I'll have to take my girlfrinds Mazda 3. At least my work van isn't made by GM so I always get to work in the morning.

    I work 3rd shift now, and since I got my car a few months back I was having a blast driving it back n forth to work. Well getting home every morning was always a challenge. Took lots of parking lot naps.

    Anyways I made it to my street one day and next thing I know.... Boom
    I hit a curb doing probally 15-25 mph and no airbag..... thank god

    Wow, now I know why two stage air bags had to be developed. That's crazy to release that much power for deployment all at once. Ouch !!!!

    I hope that you and your CETA get well soon. ;-)
