Question about 2001 GMC Savana
We have written permission from transport Canada to disable the passenger air bag in a 2001 GMC Savana. We transport a young child in the van, and need to disable the air bag in some way for safety reasons.
The dealership refused to help us.
If we had a wiring diagram for the passenger air bag, I was told that a mechanic would fix this for us.
I am very concerned for my daughters safety, but we have to use the van.
Can you please help me find the information I need?
I think it would be far safer for your daughter, to have a seat, even a fold up, that could lock into it's position, when in use, fitted into the rear behind the front seats....I'd also suggest that it is fitted with full harness safety belt....
I don't have a diagram and even if I had one, I would not give it to you.... I cannot understand why anyone would give a letter of authority, to disengage such an important safety device....It is something which may save her life.....
Do you never see the possibility, of carrying anyone else in the vehicle?
I'm sorry if I seem harsh.....I am with the traffic department where I live, and I have attended accidents.....one yesterday....
I don't know the reasons why you have applied for that exemption....All that I can say to you, is leave the air bags working and make sure you drive so that you'll never need the safety that the air bag provides....
I'm sorry if my reaction has upset you, but I wish your daughter and you, all the very best....
