I had hit the side of a van with the front of my vehicle, I was braking when I hit him so I could have been going between 40 and 50 mph. My air bags did not deploy.

Mva, my mother was involved in an accident. According to the accident report, she was turning left and the other car was only going 25 miles/hour. My mother received injuries that caused her death a week later. In inspecting the Neon, 2001 it appeared that the seat belts did not lock out. She went forward into the airbag. She had a fractured sternum and 4 fractured rib's, and multiple bruises ( so many she had to have a transfusion. How can this be! she was hardly moving and the other vehicle was only going 25 miles/hour?

While driving consumer smelled something burning, then, horn went off. Went to dealer who said that airbag module had to be replaced. Not covered under warranty because consumer punctured airbag, there was no visible damage to steering wheel where airbag was located.
