Hi, welcome to Just answer! My name is Ross and i will help with your question

techmachine :

There are two sensors at the front either side behind the bumper and one in each door for the side curtain air bags, there is also a seat pressure sensor in the passenger seat so in total there are 6 impact sensors and 1 pressure sensor.

techmachine :

A rear end shunt can set off all or some air bags, it depends very much on how hard the car was hit, the air bag control unit also has a "fail safe" sensor, this needs to be triggered as well as a position sensor, so if the fail safe sensor and for example one of the rear door sensors detected the shunt it would certainly trigger all of the air bags.
