Are the bags deployed??? If they are, then replace them and that will fix the problem.

Wait! you haven't seen this car in person?? I'd be very carefull if this is a salvage car, ask lots of questions and inspect the car very well or take it to a mechanic before you buy it. I buy cars all the time and sometimes salvaged cars are ok and sometimes have alot of damage thats not visible. Ask why the light stays on.

CAn I see these pictures?? I could tell you.

The airbag on the steering wheel is not Mitsubishi and probably cant hook it up and that's why it's on. It has JDM front head lights and JDM Gen 2 tail lights. It's a good price even for 2100. You can get both airbags on ebay for under 100 so don't let that be a big deal. Let me know if you need anything else.

Ask them flat out why they have a diffrent airbag but they might have bought it that way? Looks like audi airbag.

wow good info thanks, wish you could look at it with me. i will ask them about it. if they dont know about the airbag then i might use that as a way to talk them down a little. and if the air bags are that cheap then i i should be all set thanks again.

Here you go as an example, also look at this airbag and then look at the one on that galant, don't look the same? do they?

Check that car really good, it has JDM on it so it tells me that most likely that car was modified at one point. It also looks like t might be dropped on Tein Springs. Pop the hood and check for leaks. The timing belt was probably not done on it and that a 700 dollar job, just heads up.

My question to them would be this:

Why does it have a salvage title?

If they don't tell you, don't buy it.

If they don't know, they need to find out before you buy it, then tell you why.

Regardless I wouldn't even consider it until you know WHY it was granted a salvage title.

Even though bidding has ended on the car I would say that seeing that they didn't show a shot of the steering wheel there is no way to say that the airbags weren't deployed. If the airbag didn't deploy then the problem may lie with the sensors out front. If the airbag was replaced then you may find that it may not have been installed correctly.
