    Shouldn't there be 1 per frame rail mounted behind the actual metal bumper? I'm not sure exactly as I've never had my van that far apart in the front.

    Also, the sensor may be a dealer only item.
    Candy the van. '98 Sport 3.8L 132,200 miles. Used trans at ~96k. Great piece of my life and a fine van.

    I had my T&C checked by a technician regarding the airbags. the warning light for the airbags keeps popping up. Technicians told me the front sensors has to be replaced. Anyway thanks so much.

    I have a 06 and I put in a center consule right after I got the van and right after that the air bag light in the dash came on. Since I had warranty I took it back to the dealer they checked it and found out the connection on the seat belt on the passenger side was loose. I guess it also has somthing to do with the airbag light so in messing around the seats puting the center counsul in I must have pulled that switch loose he just connected it back up and its been fine ever since

    Some vans had a recall on them for the airbag sensors. You might want to see if yours is one of them.

    from service manual:
    IMPACT SENSOR
    DESCRIPTION
    FRONT IMPACT SENSORS
    There are two front impact sensors (Fig. 21), one
    on the left, and one on the right front sides of the
    vehicle. These sensors are mounted remotely from
    the impact sensor that is internal to the Occupant
    Restraint Controller (ORC). The right and left front
    and side impact sensors are identical in construction
    and calibration and each front impact sensor is
    secured with two screws. The front impact sensors
    are secured with two screws to the outboard sides of
    the right and left front rail tips.
    The impact sensor housing has an integral connec-
    tor and two mounting ears, each with a metal sleeve
    to provide crush protection. A cavity in the center of
    the molded black plastic impact sensor housing con-
    tains the electronic circuitry of the sensor which
    includes an electronic communication chip and an
    electronic impact sensor. Potting material fills the
    cavity to seal and protect the internal electronic cir-
    cuitry and components. The front impact sensors are
    each connected to the vehicle electrical system
    through the headlamp to dash wire harness.
    The front impact sensors cannot be repaired or
    adjusted and, if damaged or faulty, they must be
    replaced. If a front impact sensor is faulty, only the
    sensor needs to be replaced. If the sensor is damaged
    or faulty, or if proper tightening torque of the screws
    that secure the sensor to the bracket cannot be
    achieved, the sensor and bracket must be replaced.
    Refer to the proper body diagnostic information for
    diagnosis and testing.
    Fig. 21 FRONT IMPACT SENSOR
