using 2003 f-150 without airbags

Page 2 of 2  

Try $3,000 for the new airbags, airbag computer, airbag sensors, etc... All of the airbag equipment has to be replaced after a deployment.

Why do you always chose to comment on subjects of which you obviously have little or no knowledge "dr_jeff?"
There are no "explosives," by definition, in the SRS system. The SRS bags are deployed by the mixing of Sodium Azide (NaN3) with Potassium Nitrate (KNO3) set off by an Igniter, that causes a rapid Nitrogen Gas EXPANSION, when a collision force equal to running into a brick wall at 10 to 15 miles per hour is detected by the accelerometer built into a microchip. The nylon fabric bag, which is folded into the steering wheel or dashboard then deploys at up to 200 mph, faster than the blink of an eye. Within a second later, the gas dissipates through holes in the side of bag, deflating the bag so you can still move or continue to steer the vehicle if need be. The powdery substance released when the bags deploy is cornstarch, or talcum powder, that is use to prevent the folded bags from sticking together while in their storage area.
The driver and passenger SRS use different amounts of those chemicals so the larger passenger, and the small, driver SRS bags reach their full expansion at the same time then deflate. All of which happens without ever emitting the ear-splitting bang that one would expect from an explosion, dummy

You just defined an explosion.

Ya right! You said "airbags involve explosives," it was that comment to which I responded. I did so to correct your error so that others do not make the mistake of believing your comment was factual.

Not all of it. The computer should not be damaged by deploying the airbag. And some of the sensors don't need to be replaced, either.
My father had his Pontiac totaled after he ran it down a hill because of the costs of replacing the airbags when added to the other damage.
