You can't turn the air bag off it has a weight sensor in the seat. Do not put any child in the front seat.

Turn taurus air bag off

The airbag is a federally-required component of the vehicle. Most states require that the bags be installed and in good service condition. The only exceptions are for pickup trucks that may require the need to install a car seat in the front passenger side. They may have a switch to disable the passenger airbag under these conditions. Other vehicles have a seat sensor that detects the amount of weight on the front passenger seat and will automatically disable the airbag when there is no one in the seat or if the person in the seat is under a certain weight, indicating that they may be injured by the activation of the airbag. Otherwise, it is unwise, and in many jurisdictions, *******, to disable an airbag. Thus, although there may be ways to do it, you probably won't get any help here as we are bound to terms of service on this site, as well as that we don't want or need the potential legal liability issues that such information could bring down upon us.

I need to disconnect the passenger side airbag on my 2007 ra rodeo as I have a kids car seat in the front

do not attempt this air bags are dangerous and even static electricity build up can deploy them upon contact and removal best have a chat to a local dealer and see even if it is legal in your state to do so. best to know air bags are really dangerous and a trained tech is the only way to go, the ecu will also realise that there is a fault with the air bag being stuffed with and log a fault as well as display a dash warning light. hope that was of some help

I am putting a carseat in the passenger side of an 02 ford escape how do I disengage the airbag

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. This model does not have the air bag option. If you choose to disengage, both airbags will be off. You may want to have it removed. I wouldn't choose to cut wires because it could be deployed. I do have some information on disengaging it if you are interested, but like I said, both airbags will be off.

You cannot turn airbag off. Options, face child seat backwards or put carseat in rear seat. Sorry, I don't have a better answer for you.

I have a alfa omega car seat and cannot get it to fit into my dodge truck.I can get it in but the front seat has to be all the way almost and makes it real difficult for my passengers ,so what can we do?

We had our rear facing car seat in the back seat of our car , but when we went camping with our truck we put it in the front seat (center) . Our baby loved that she could sit and still see us.
Our truck was older , so did not have air bags which could be dangerous to the child.
Some newer trucks have a switch to turn off the passenger side air bag.

Air bag off

Your car has second generation airbags and it monitors weight in the passenger seat. If a child sits in the seat the computer looks at the weight and turns off the airbag so not to deploy in a crash. If you put anything in the seat like a purse or briefcase the computer will think its a baby and turn off the airbag.
