    Hi

    I need to know if the air bags in the car are inflated

    I guess this data runs over CAN but i can't detect it via regular sniffing (crash the car???)

    can anyone advise?

    Best Regards

    If the air bags are inflated, you would soon know it and it would be readily visible! :D
    I am assuming you mean armed?
    Some vehicles it can be read using a cheap CANbus monitor at the test socket using a laptop.
    The front A.B.'s usually have a pendulum type inertia switch as well as the front impact ones in the fender area.
