Default how do you set off an airbag?

we've all seen those videos where a bunch of guys blow up an airbag under some other guy.

i know you can buy an airbag off ebay but how would you go about setting em off?

which contacts do you connect?
how many volts?

anyone got any info on this?

Looks like you're trying to make it on the 2009 Darwin Awards list.

Don't be an idiot. Airbags aren't anything to play around with. Static electricity can deploy them.

Don't listen to truckfxr, he doesn't know anything. It's perfectly safe to play with air bags. Davidsfarm does it all the time! I'll even send you one. Be sure to handle the box very violently.

Didn't read the OP, but 12 volts across the plug on it should do.

Honestly OP, I doubt you have the resources and capabilities to do it safely at least, but please try. I suppose I wouldn't mind another example of natural selection, but I also like to support personal experimentation. Just hide behind a wall or something, okay?

To set off the airbag, either take the entire assembly, including the accelerometer (At least, I think it is) that activates the airbag, and just set it up so you have some sort of swing-like assembly striking it. To do that, you'll need at least 23 km/h or 14-15-ish mph.

Alternatively, depending on the type of airbag, you might be able to use an 'electric match', which is basically a heating element (or material with equally high resistance), and some sort of combustible (potassium nitrate IIRC?) around it. All I know about how this works is that the heating element gets an electrical current, ignites the combustible, which in turn sets off the sodium azide(?) and creates nitrogen pretty fucking quickly. But I'm betting you can't pull this method off. If you decide to use this one, do some research about it. I'm just saying what I can recall.

Again, I'm just text on a screen. You choice if you decide to take my post into consideration. But seriously, some simple safety precautions can go a long way.

For information purposes only. I strongly recommend that you do not attempt to deploy any air bag, as serious injury or death could result.

That being said, if you are foolish enough to wish to do it any way, the following is the proper procedure to deploy an air bag. Do at your own risk.

Driver Air Bag Module, Passenger Air Bag Module and Seat Side Air Bag Modules — Remote Deployment:

WARNING: Never probe the electrical connectors on air bag, Safety Canopy® or side air curtain modules. Failure to follow this instruction may result in the accidental deployment of these modules, which increases the risk of serious personal injury or death.


WARNING: Always carry or place a live air bag module with the air bag and deployment door/trim cover/tear seam pointed away from the body. Do not set a live air bag module down with the deployment door/trim cover/tear seam face down. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury in the event of an accidental deployment.


WARNING: Deploy all supplemental restraint system (SRS) devices (air bags, pretensioners, load limiters, etc.) outdoors with all personnel at least 9.14 meters (30 feet) away to make sure of personal safety. Due to the loud report which occurs when an SRS device is deployed, hearing protection is required. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury.


NOTE: For air bag modules with multiple loops, all the loops on the air bag module must be deployed.


NOTE: Some driver and passenger front air bags have 2 deployment stages. After a collision it is possible that Stage 1 has deployed and Stage 2 has not.
If a front air bag module has deployed, it is mandatory that the front air bag module be remotely deployed using the appropriate air bag disposal procedure


NOTE: A typical air bag disposal is shown that is similar for all vehicles.

All driver, passenger and seat side air bag modules:


1. Make a container to house the air bag module for deployment.

NOTE: The tires must be of sufficient size to accommodate the air bag module.

2. Obtain a tire and wheel assembly and an additional 4 tires (without wheels) of the same size.

  • With the tire and wheel assembly on the bottom, stack the tires.
  • Securely tie all of the tires together.




NOTE: If the air bag module does not have a hard-wired pigtail, it will be necessary to cut the wires and connector(s) from the vehicle wire harness and reconnect to the air bag module.

3. Cut each of the air bag module wires near the electrical connector that connects to the vehicle wire harness.

4. Remove any sheathing (if present) and strip the insulation from the ends of the cut wires.

NOTE: Typical driver air bag module with 2 loops shown, other air bag modules with multiple loops similar.


5. For air bag modules with multiple loops, twist together a wire from each loop then repeat for the remaining wires from each loop.



6. Make a jumper harness to deploy the air bag module.

  • Obtain 2 wires (20 gauge minimum) at least 9.14 m (30 ft) long and strip both ends of each wire.
  • At one end of the jumper harness, connect the wires together.

7. Using the end of the jumper harness where the wires are not connected together, attach each wire of the jumper harness to each wire of the air bag module or to the twisted-together wires if multiple loops. Use tape or other insulating material to make sure that the leads do not make contact with each other.



Driver air bag modules:

NOTE: Make sure to maintain the connections to the air bag module.


8. With the stack of tires upright and the wheel on the bottom, carefully place the driver air bag module, with the trim cover facing up, on the wheel.




Passenger and seat side air bag modules:

NOTE: Make sure to maintain the connections to the air bag module.


9. Tip the stack of tires on its side and place the air bag module inside the center tire, making sure that there are 2 tires beneath the tire containing the air bag module and 2 tires (including the tire and wheel assembly) above the tire containing the air bag module.

10. Place the tire stack upright, with the wheel on top.



All driver, passenger and seat side air bag modules:

11. Remain at least 9.14 m (30 ft) away from the air bag module.

12. From the end of the jumper harness that is not connected to the air bag module, disconnect the 2 wires of the jumper harness from each other.

13. Deploy the air bag module by touching the ends of the 2 wires of the jumper harness to the terminals of a 12-volt battery.

14. To allow for cooling, wait at least 10 minutes before approaching the deployed air bag module.

Just apply 12v from a car battery. It looks real cool when you bury an airbag a foot or two underground and set it off from a distance.

I see Ford still has the same old deployment procedure,that's the safest way to do it for sure.I on the other hand have modified it a bit but I wont post it
Air bags are not toys,Also on a side note if you detonate a bunch don't wear the same jacket through airport security, air bag propellant is made of sodium azide (NaN3) with potassium nitrate (KNO3) they might think you have been with Mohamed making bombs.

But you forgot about the shorting clip,...all hooking up 12v will do is melt the wire and overheat the battery you use,...unless you disable the shorting clips. I recommend the use of the clock spring connector.
