Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You can accidentally deploy an airbag while working on the steering column

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is possible to accidentally deploy an airbag while working on the steering column because the airbag system is sensitive and can be triggered by certain actions, such as tampering with the wiring or sensors in the steering column. This can happen if proper precautions are not taken or if the person working on the steering column is not aware of the potential risks involved. Therefore, it is important to exercise caution and follow proper procedures when working on the steering column to avoid accidental airbag deployment.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    What year did the government mandate driver's side airbags?

    • A.

      1989

    • B.

      1996

    • C.

      2001

    • D.

      The government has never mandated it.

    Correct Answer
    B. 1996
    Explanation
    In 1996, the government mandated driver's side airbags. This means that it became a requirement for all vehicles to have airbags on the driver's side to enhance safety measures.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Airbags were first introduced to the passenger car market and quickly discontinued in what decade?

    • A.

      The 1950's

    • B.

      The 1960's

    • C.

      The 1970's

    • D.

      The 1980

    Correct Answer
    C. The 1970's
    Explanation
    Airbags were first introduced to the passenger car market in the 1970s. This was a significant development in automotive safety as airbags provide an additional layer of protection in the event of a collision. The introduction of airbags in the 1970s marked a major step forward in improving the safety standards of vehicles and reducing the risk of injury for passengers.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Airbags can be set off by hitting the front bumper of a vehicle with a sledgehammer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Airbags are not set off by hitting the front bumper of a vehicle with a sledgehammer. Airbags are designed to deploy in response to a sudden deceleration or impact, typically caused by a collision. They are triggered by sensors that detect the rapid deceleration and send a signal to the airbag module, which then inflates the airbags. Hitting the front bumper with a sledgehammer would not generate the necessary force or deceleration to trigger the airbags.

  • 5. 

    Some motorcycles come with airbags.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Some motorcycles do come with airbags as a safety feature. These airbags are designed to deploy in the event of a collision, providing additional protection to the rider. While not all motorcycles have airbags, it is becoming more common for manufacturers to include this feature in their higher-end models to enhance rider safety.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

      Airbags contain a caustic chemical substance that can cause skin burns on contact.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Airbags do not contain a caustic chemical substance that can cause skin burns on contact. Airbags are typically made of a nylon fabric and are filled with nitrogen gas or a mixture of nitrogen and argon. The purpose of airbags is to provide cushioning and reduce the impact of a collision, not to cause harm to the occupants. While airbags can cause minor injuries such as abrasions or bruising due to the force of deployment, they do not contain chemicals that can cause skin burns.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Can an airbag deploy even if you take the battery out of a vehicle?

    • A.

      Yes, it can

    • B.

      No, it cannot

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, it can
    Explanation
    The airbag system in a vehicle is designed to deploy in the event of a collision, regardless of whether the battery is connected or not. This is because the airbag system has its own power source, typically a backup battery or a capacitor, which allows it to function independently of the vehicle's main battery. Therefore, even if the battery is disconnected or removed, the airbag system can still deploy if the collision sensors detect a crash.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Airbags use an explosive to inflate.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Airbags indeed use an explosive to rapidly inflate during an accident. When a collision occurs, a sensor triggers the airbag system, which ignites a small explosive charge. This explosion produces nitrogen gas, which inflates the airbag within milliseconds. The purpose of this rapid inflation is to provide a cushioning effect and prevent occupants from hitting hard surfaces in the vehicle, reducing the risk of severe injuries. Therefore, the statement "Airbags use an explosive to inflate" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Airbags stay inflated and can trap you in a vehicle if you can not puncture them.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Airbags are designed to provide protection during a collision by rapidly inflating and then deflating. They are not meant to stay inflated and can never trap a person inside a vehicle. In fact, airbags are designed to deflate within milliseconds after deployment, allowing occupants to safely exit the vehicle. Therefore, the statement that airbags can trap you in a vehicle if you cannot puncture them is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Please explain why airbags should be installed in all vehicles. Write at least three sentences.

  • 11. 

    Please list three cautions for either a driver of a vehicle with an airbag and/or a technician working on a vehicle with an airbag.
