air bag replacement

My son has a 1996 ford contour, v6

To make a long story short, both air bags fired (cracked the front windshield in the process).

I am looking for clarification on how to replace the air bags, as I don't want to miss anything that may fire the replacement bags.

1. Does the air bags trigger sensors automatically normalize after the have fired.

2. Does the control module need replacement, what I am after does the module and sensors automatically normalize from a fault / trigger mode to a untriggered mode that will be safe once the airbags are replaced.

Thank you for any help or info

Air bag system repair is very dangerous and a job for professionals. People on this forum generally refrain from giving any advice concerning air bags.
