The driverside air bag went off when the vehicle was parked in my garage. I started the vehicle and left the door open, I then went to take the garbage out to end of my driveway. As I was walking back to my garage I heard a loud noise. I noticed the air bag had been deployed when I reached my vehicle. The vehicle was still running and I didn't notice anything else wrong. I drove the vehicle to work and I rolled down the window to air out the vehicle. About 5 minutes later the windows wouldn't work. I changed the fuse but that didn't solve the window problem. That would have been bad if the air bag deployed when I was driving.
