YES it could very well cause the air bags not to go off as they were
intended to. Is that good or bad? Unless you have areas that will catch on
the car wash brushes I don't see what they'd be a problem. I once saw an
antenna caught in the brushes scratch up cars and have avoided them. They
also cause swirls in clear coat especially on dark colors.
