Honda Accord: Side Airbags
The side airbags help protect the upper torso of the driver or a front passenger during a moderate-to-severe side impact.
• Housing Locations
The side airbags are housed in the outside edge of the driver's and passenger's seatbacks.
Both are marked SIDE AIRBAG.
When the sensors detect a moderate-tosevere side impact, the control unit signals the side airbag on the impact side to immediately inflate.
Make sure you and your front seat passenger always sit upright. Leaning into the path of a side airbag can prevent the airbag from deploying properly and increases your risk of serious injury.
Do not attach accessories on or near the side airbags.
They can interfere with the proper operation of the airbags, or hurt someone if an airbag inflates.
If the impact is on the passenger side, the airbag deploys even if there is no passenger in the passenger seat.
Do not cover or replace the front seat-back covers without consulting a dealer.
Improperly replacing or covering front seat-back covers can prevent your side airbags from properly deploying during a side impact.
• When a side airbag deploys with little or no visible damage
Because the airbag systems senses sudden acceleration, a strong impact to the side of the vehicle's framework can cause a side airbag to deploy. In such cases, there may be little or no damage, but the side impact sensors detected a severe enough impact to deploy the airbag.
• When a side airbag may not deploy, even though visible damage appears severe
It is possible for a side airbag to not deploy during an impact that results in apparently severe damage. This can occur when the point of impact was towards the far front or rear of the vehicle, or when the vehicle's crushable body parts absorbed most of the crash energy. In either case, the side airbag would not have been needed nor provided protection even if it had deployed.
