Is there a way to tell if an impact sensor is good before putting it on? Its on a 94 chrysler concorde that I'm putting back together after an impact where the airbags deployed. The front impact sensors measure 9.90 and 9.92 ohms.
A sledge hammer might not be enough to trip the sensors, so try slamming into the front or rear bumper of a 1969 Chrysler Newport, that should do the job nicely. Oh, and don't worry, you won't hurt the Newport.
Sorry to resurrect a dead post but I was answering a more recent similar question and this one came to the top of Google so I figured I'd answer it too in case somebody else ends up here. I tested 6 impact sensors from 1st gen Intrepids with a multimeter and also against the car system test and found my 5 good ones measure ~10kΩ while my particular bad one read in the MΩ range.
