The contact owns a 2009 Mitsubishi Galant. The contact stated that while driving at 15 mph the passenger side air bag inadvertently deployed. The contact also stated that there was no collision. The contact maneuvered to the side of the street. The contact drove the vehicle to the dealer and the diagnosis was that the vehicle displayed a front bumper damage therefore the sensor was damaged.

Galant 6-cyl

I was completely stopped, waiting to make a left turn when a car barrelled up behind me and hit me from behind. The impact caused my car to be thrown into the lane of oncoming traffic, and another car hit me head-on. My car was being tossed around like a tin can. When it finally came to a stop, the steering wheel was trying to deploy the airbag, but it never inflated. But, smoke and fumes were coming from the steering wheel. I thought it was about to explode or catch on fire.
