Never had a problem with anything not working but since I've noticed the front airbag lights on the cruise control and horn has stopped working don't know if it could have been a related issue to the airbag have checked the fuses and all of them was good but my horn and cruise control has stopped working. One other thing I have noticed and about my Celica is they car vibrations have made the door bolts come loose door stays shut but very noticeable cause the door lights stay on and you could see where the interior lights is off but once your driving down the road and the interior lights start blinking and have to tighten them up ever so often so this incident don't happen.

I was driving my 2001 Toyota Celica GT when I hit a patch of ice and slid off the road, I slid over an embankment and hit a fire hydrant head on at about 45 mph, the airbags did not deploy. My face hit the steering wheel and the entire lower half of my body jammed into my spine, causing permanent damage. When further inspected the passenger side airbag sensor was completely broken away from the frame of the vehicle. I'm not entirely sure whether this is a known defect in the 2000+ year models of the Toyota Celica's. the condenser, and radiator and frame were damaged. The radiator was replaced, the condenser was not. The frame is still crushed. Airbag light stays on continuously, and check engine light comes on occasionally for no apparent reason. Seat belt was properly fastened at the time of the crash.

As I was pulling into my parking spot in the ramp, my car 'unexpectedly' lurched forward into a concrete pillar on the left and a wire barrier and concrete wall ahead. Damage to the car was $5,647.92. My air bag did not deploy nor did my seat belt hold me. My head flew forward onto the steering wheel and I required 14 stitches below my mouth and chin on the outside and 12 on the inside.
