Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

How to deactivate the passenger airbag?


Impact Depending (ID) airbags.
With the Impact Depending (ID) system, you and your passenger are given effective protection proportionate to the severity of the impact.

Conventional airbag systems are unable to differentiate between a severe impact and a lighter one. When they are deployed, they are inflated to the fullest level, making the airbag as hard as possible. In a low-level accident, this is not necessary.
The intelligent ID airbags are equipped with a two-stage gas generator. In a more severe impact, they inflate to their fullest level with minimum time delay, providing maximum protection for the occupants. However, when the accident is less severe, they allow for a slightly longer delay before deployment, protecting the occupants with a more gentle inflation. Whatever the severity of the impact, the airbags ensure that neither the driver nor the front passenger contacts the steering wheel or instrument panel.
A special weight sensor in the passenger seat registers whether the seat is occupied or not. The system can thus differentiate between a passenger and a lighter object such as a briefcase. If the seat is occupied by a weight less than 12 kg, the front passenger airbag is not deployed, saving replacement costs following a crash and potentially leading to lower insurance charges. The front passenger airbag can also be deactivated using a key switch, when a child seat is fitted.
finding a kit to disable the airbag is not going to be easy,noone including dealers will sell or install them on any bimmer,
you could find a kit and buy individual replacement parts,but,i wouldn't recommend it,much less recommend switching the airbag off,personally,I would purchase and install a 5 point restraint that doesn't let the child move forward too much and pull the seat all the way back,the child will not be hurt that way,also in a low speed crash,bimmers dont fully inflate the bag,here is what one owner has to say on a forum about it,
I take my 3, 6 and 9 year olds for drives in my car. These cars are very safe, as is evidenced by my auto insurance premiums being only marginally higher for the Z3 than for my pickup and my wife's SUV. Of course we do have those vehicles for use in transporting the kids most of the time.

Several key things to keep in mind: use a booster seat so the child sits higher, to move the seat all the way back, and to not allow the child to lean against the door--you need to have adequate clearance there.

It's hard for me to believe a side airbag could be worse than hitting the door itself in a side impact--assuming the child is sitting a little away from the door to allow full inflation of the airbag before the child hits it

How do i bypass an airbag


This is not recommended as the cars Ecu would start throwing up many error codes even if it was possible! The only airbag that it is possible to deactivate is the passenger one and only for safety reasons of carrying a baby seat or young passengers!

How do I disable my 2005 dodge neon passenger airbag so a child can ride in the front seat?


I doesn't look like you can disable it. The manual says all children should be in the back seat and never in a rear facing child seat in the front seat. manual is here : https://duckduckgo.com/l/?kh=-1&uddg=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dodge.com%2Fdownload%2Fpdf%2Fmanuals%2F2005_PL_Neon.pdf

DOES THE SRS SHUT OFF IN THE FORD ESCORT ZX2 2 DOOR COUPE WHEN A CHILD SEAT IS IN THE PASSENGER FRONT SEAT? WHAT ARE THE FACTS ON THE AIRBAG SYSTEM IN THIS CAR. CAN AN INFANT SEAT SIT IN FRONT ON PASSENGER...


NO! Please do not put your child in the front seat in any vehicle if your car has a back seat. The manufacturer will tell you this in your owners manual and on the sticker inside the door. A child seat in the front seat will not shut off the air bag. Depending on your model for that year, you may or may not have a keyslot on the dash to shut the passengers side airbag off. If you don't have it, please, please don't put your child in the front seat.

Hyundai Getz - Passanger airbag or not...


If it says "airbag" on the stering wheel AND on the dash in front of the passenger,then it has a passengers side airbag.
Children are much safer in the back seat in the event of a collision.

Need to disable passenger airbag in lexus 2003 rx300


if you open the passanger door there is a slot for the key. you will need to press the button on the circular key to pull out the real key.  Don't do that!The airbag is a safety device which can save the life of the passenger in case of an accident!However,as the Corvette is a 2-seat car,if you are talking about a child,I strongly recommend you to install an aftermarket Passenger Airbag ON-OFF switch.That is possible even for older car models
