side air bags

So I hope this dosent sound dumb, but how do I know if my airbags are deactivated or activated? I just bought a pre-owned car a few days ago and it is 3 yrs old. Do newer cars not have them in the back/sides? I guess I could check with the dealership but sometimes I wonder how reliable people are over the phone. I def. have to check into this.

  • Many airbags (but not all) are labelled where they are located. Like a stamp on the passenger front dash saying that underneath that plastic panel is an airbag. In my vehicle, they are labeled on the pillars as to where the side-airbags are.

  • I'm sure the car manually has that information as well at what car seats are approved for rear side installation in your new vehicle
