Hi rideordie493, This is probably a safety related issue. Once the airbag deploys it will not allow the vehicle to start as a safety precaution. You may very well need to have the "safety systems" initialized by either replacing the airbag (and/or steering column) or the airbag deployment module. Hope this helps!
