2008 Colorado Airbag Deactivation

I own a 2008 Chevy Colorado Z71 Ext. Cab. A Rear Facing baby seat will not fit in the rear ext cab seat. The only place I have for it is the front seat, but I do not feel comfortable having the airbag on with the baby sitting there. I know the truck has an on/off swith I'm just not the brightest at these things and was wondering if anyone knew how to turn the airbag off? Any suggestions will help. Thanks!

For my gm friends with newer vehicles (06 and up) if its anything like my truck there is a sensor in the seat. anyone or anything over 50 lbs. will trigger the sensor to turn the airbag on. otherwise the passenger side is always off. if that doesnt work, pop out your owners manual.

Usually you can insert your key in the slot thats near the airbag light in the dash and rotate it to turn it on and off

    I have the same 2008 Colorado and need to deactivate the passenger airbag for child protection, but my 2008 Colorado does not have the slot near the airbag light in the dash. Without that option, would you recommend removing a fuse and where would it be located?

I need the OEM for a rear u joint on a 1997 gmc k1500 z71 body is a ext cab with 3rd door and a shortened seems to be aluminum driveshaft.can't seem to find one.any help out there..?

Hi Rodney. If you have the old one you should be able to purchase another by presenting it to your parts man. He should be able to find the one you need by measuring the cups (both sides, shaft and rear end yoke as they may be different) and the width of your cross. Get one with grease fitting if available and you have the clearance. Just remember a little dab will do you about a half of a squirt when you grease it later on.

Remove rear seat 1993 chevy 1500

I just took out my rear seat from my 1993 Cheyenne ext cab. Fold the back seat in the up position. There are 2 square stubs sticking out from each side that the hinge plates of the seat slip over. Take out the 5/8 bolt and washer securing the hinge plate to the stub--slide the seat assembly toward the rear of the cab--and lift up and out.
Once you have the right solution--it is a 5 minute job !!!
