Ford F-250 2001: How do I know the airbag will work?

Asked by Brad

With regards to my 2001 Ford F-250 and generally other older vehicles with airbags, how long can we expect the airbags to work? Can they be tested?

You had to replace the airbags in some older vehicles built before the mid-1990s, but the airbags in vehicles later than that last the lifetime of the vehicle. There’s no real way of testing them to know they will work when needed.
