That's what I was thinking, since it's mostly software controlled nowadays its probably inhibited in 4 low or has a much higher threshold to set off. If anything the only complaints I have seen on the JL's is the airbags not going off during front collisions on the street, probably because all the "parameters" weren't met at the time of collision.Maybe they’re disabled when in 4WD? Probably not a strong enough impact to set them off.
Yea, over on the forum full of duck worshipers there's a few accounts of people who's airbags haven't gone off. I can't link them because I be banned . No major injuries I saw but one girl smashed her face up pretty good into the passenger airbag light up top in a 25mph head on in a parking lot.That’s some scary shit right there!
The air-bags on my CJ-5 never deployed by accident and I did not really worry about it. The severity of the problem seems to be over-stated.I don't think it's a huge problem, like I said I read a couple of accounts of bags not deploying, didn't delve into the details, I'm not really stressed about it.
