Q: Driver's side airbag not working

asked by on

The driver's side airbag is not working.

This question would require more information. I would need to know what indication is telling you the drivers air bag is not working? The vehicle has an Air Bag Light on the dash that comes on if a fault is in any part of the air bag system. If this is the case then a proper diagnosis of the Air Bag Light would have to be done. I recommend you have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic check your vehicle out for you to see if this is a problem that they can fix for you.
