Question about 2003 Ford Focus
I want to fit a rear facing car seat in the passenger seat of my ford focus(03), is there any way of switching off the airbag in the passenger seat? Can I do this myself by disconnecting a cable or do I need to take it to a ford dealer to have this done?.
The passenger airbag is what is called a smart generation airbag, there is a sensor in the passenger seat that tells the airbag control module to turn off the bag if the weight is less than 50 pounds in the paswsenger seat, i.e. a child, I work for Ford and we will not turn off or tamper with or disconnect the airbag, why? if you get in a wreck and are hurt because we disconnected or otherwise defeated the airbag we would be liable for damages and a lawsuit.
