I wanted to know if the car was in an accident would both airbags deploy or just one. I have heard different things.
My car has 156000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) system in the 1996 Sentra is NOT equipped with any passenger seat sensors that could potentially determine if a passenger is actually present in the vehicle, let alone that passenger’s weight. Consequently, if the SRS central control unit activates the airbags, due to a crash, by design both driver and passenger side airbags in your vehicle will deploy at exactly the same instant. This is confirmed by the wiring diagram in the Factory Service Manual for your vehicle.
