    Seatbelts and Airbags

    I recently was involved in an accident in which nether the seatbelts locked or airbags worked. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem. Then later after the accident I was sent a message not to drive my jl until I had my airbags checked out. A little late!

    Pictures? The front bumper is like a grand and the headlights are a grand. The grill is probably $750. Doesnt take much to get to $6,000.

    This is the message I received from Jeep after my wreck had occurred from UCONNECT

    If you're OK after a front end collision without the airbags deploying, the airbags did their job properly by not deploying. You don't want them to deploy unless injury or death is imminent, as their deployment can cause injuries. Those possible injuries are considered acceptable if they ultimately save your life. It's normal to need to have the system inspected to ensure all sensors are still fully operational after a crash, as some sensors are designed only for a single impact, even when there is no deployment.
