The first episode was hitting a deer head on at 45mph the airbags never went off. The second episode was another direct hit head on from rear ending someone who cut infront of me. The airbags did not deploy either time and the police officers and everyone involved were surprised they didn't.

problem #1

  • 9,000 miles
This problem has been confirmed to exist in both a 2011 and a 2014 Ford Edge. With a passenger weighting 72-75 lbs in the front passenger seat, the air bag turns on and off depending on how the passenger is sitting on the seat. This same passenger has traveled almost 50,000 miles in a 2011 mustang which has a similar sensor system and has never had the air bag turn on. We are able to reproduce this problem at will. This information suggests a problem in the Ford Edge with the software that monitors the front passenger seat sensors and determines when to turn on the front passenger air bag. This was reported to Ford on 07/22 and we checked on it on 09/23 and there was no update, indicating that they have not taken any action on this.
