    Can a a passenger side airbag deploy in an accident if there is no one in the seat?

    Specifically, this is for a 1999 Acura Integra


    Thank you

    It's not supposed to...most modern cars detect if there is a passenger in the seat by weight usually 50lbs or more and turn on/off the airbag accordingly.

    There's a massive air bag recall right now on Hondas and Acuras. Check with a dealer.

    They're a tiny bit sensitive, but nothing to worry about.
