Ford Expedition owners have reported 2 problems related to air bag on-off switch (under the air bag category).
A deer came onto the highway as I was switching lanes and I swerved to prevent hitting. Hit the deer and drag it approx 60 ft. Sparks and flames were coming from the vehicle as we flipped. Vehicle began to flip 6-8 times per passenger (daughter) and a tractor trailer driver. Air bags never deployed. This is the first time for the failure of the bags. The Expedition was totaled because the front and rear window came out, the driver and passenger window in the front row were shattered, the ashtray disconnected and went out the window. The mirrors on the expo were damaged and the body of the vehicle was terribly damaged. A new vehicle was brought a couple of weeks later.

Head on collision at 35 mph, neither airbag deployed. Driver suffered minor injuries. Consumer and another vehicle hit head on, thereby knocking consumer into a telephone pole. Neither collision ignited the air bags to deploy. A Ford rep informed consumer that the impact did not set off the inertia switch. There are pictures available upon request.
