Modern airbag systems use an accelerometer, which is an electronic device that measures changes in acceleration.Coolhand said:Modern pickup bumpers are so high, that if the oncoming vehicle is a car under heavy braking I'll bet the car impacts so low on the truck that the bumper airbag sensors may not be engaged...
Jesus bagman. That's horrible. I sure am glad that your daughter still has her finger. That must have terrible to see, let alone experience. Do you happen to have a picture of the hinge that you are referring to so that we all can get a better idea?sammy sandbag said:WE RECENTLY PURCHASED A 2004 FORD F-150 SUPER CREW, MY 5 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER WAS GETTING INTO THE BACK SEAT OF THE VEHICLE, AND SHE PUT HER HAND INTO THE DOOR JAM AREA WHERE THERE IS WHAT LOOKS LIKE A "SCISSOR" HINGE. IF THE DOOR IS NOT ALL THE WAY OPEN AND A FINGER GETS CAUGHT IN THERE THE DOOR IF PUSHED OPEN CLOSES THE HINGE. MY DAUGHTERS TOP LEFT MIDDLE FINGER WAS ALMOST COMPLETELY SEVERED OFF. SHE WAS TAKEN TO A LOCAL HOSPITAL WHERE SHE RECEIVED STICHES AND WAS REFERRED TO A HAND SURGEON. THIS HINGE SHOULD BE LOOKED AT AND POSSIBLY REDESIGNED, THE ONLY WAY TO REMOVE HER FINGER FROM THE HINGE WAS TO CLOSE THE DOOR SLIGHTLY. *LA
Ahhhhh...although I feel like an idiot right now, I feel much better knowing that it was not him. I must admit, I thought it was kinda strange, the whole F150 purchase and everything. I just figured he wanted two trucks. Thanks.cshepherd said:I believe that Sandbag was posting an excerpt from the NTHSA website and that he does not own a '04 Supercrew.
I had a little of this, I would move to reverse but stay in neutral. I mentioned this at first sevice. They tightened my shift cable and it has been perfect ever since.kentd said:I've had several instances of moving the (column) shift lever, and the gear indicator saying that it was in one mode, when really the vehicle is still mechanically in an adjacent gear.
I usually don't look at the indicator, but I've noticed that it's incorrect on occasion.
