Airbags while in neutral?

#1

Somebody told me that when a car is in neutral, the airbags will not deploy. Is this true at all?


#2

I’d ask them to prove it, some document, anything. I’ve never heard that, don’t know why it would be true.


#3

The airbags don’t know what gear the car is in…Once the system is armed during start-up, it’s ready to go…


#4

Is this issue really important?
Were you planning on crashing into something while in neutral?


#5

Fairytale.


#6

So; if you want me to stop talking, just throw it into neutral? Fat chance.
