    Does front airbag deployment disable the Mach E? Can it then be made drivable after airbag deployment?

    My 2021 Mach E front end was hit in a tangential fashion as I was pulling out of a driveway front first. The airbags deployed. There was damage to front bumper, hood, both front fenders. Electrically, the car is operational. I turn it on and everything appears normal in the passenger compartment and driver controls. I have even received information on my FordPass app that the car is in the sleep mode. However, the car can’t be put into gear with the gear selector knob. This is complicating the collision repair process immensely because it needs to be towed everywhere and the inside bay at the Ford dealer where it will be taken apart for further assessment won’t be available for a few weeks at the earliest. By my observation, the car should be drivable, no damage to front wheel wells, tires, etc. Has the airbag deployment disabled the car. Can it be re-enabled to it can move on its own.

    I found a ton of info regarding "Pre-Collision" in the Owners Manual , but nothing on post-collision. Because the OP didn't report any error messages being displayed, the egregious damage appears to have grounded this Mustang.
