VIN (Vehicle identification number)
The driver airbag could be triggered without obvious cause. This is due to electrostatic discharge if the steering column is not sufficiently grounded and the steering column switch module is already damaged or faulty. An airbag warning message will alert the driver via the instrument cluster display as well as a red airbag indicator lamp that the steering column module is damaged or faulty.
Triggering of the driver airbag without obvious cause could both increase the risk of injury to the driver as well as the risk of a possible accident.
