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 deactivate srs so i can replace front seatbelts on 2005 yaris


Disconnect the battery negative terminal.
1. Wait at least 90 seconds after the ignition switch is
turned off and the negative (-) terminal cable is
disconnected from the battery before starting the
operation.
(The SRS is equipped with a back-up power source, so
if work is started within 90 seconds of disconnecting
the negative (-) terminal cable of the battery, the SRS
may be deployed).
2. Do not directly expose the steering pad, front
passenger airbag assembly, center airbag sensor
assembly, front airbag sensor, front seat inner belt
assembly, seat position sensor, occupant
classification ECU, front seat side airbag assembly,
side airbag sensor, curtain shield airbag assembly,
rear airbag sensor or front seat outer belt assembly to
hot air or flames.

How do I switch off the airbag in the passenger seat (to enable use of baby seat) ?


Personally i would never put a baby in a front passenger seat of a car fitted with an air bag. On saying that, there should be a key hole to turn the airbag off, using the ignition key. where this is situated should be on the centre dash between the seats or at the side of the dash near the pass side of the vehicle. A light should illuminate when the airbag is off to warn you that it is Disconnected/off. your owners manual should shed some light on this. Failing that stop off at ANY audi dealer and they will tell you.

Cant find keyhole or switch to turn my airbags off in my mazda 6


The airbag system in this car is second generation smart airbags, there is no switch, if the weight in the passenger seat is not at least 50 pounds (there is a sensor in the seat cushion) the airbag is switched off to the paassenger seat, but small children should always be in a approved child seat in the back seat anyway.

Disabling Airbags on Mazda 323f 1995


Well, for one you not suppose to put a baby seat in the front of the car. But anyways with an older airbag control system like that you cannot just disable one airbag, if you unplug the passenger side airbag then in an accident neither airbags will deploy.

Ford Focus 2006 model airbag deactivation


Children in car seats should never be put in the front seat.  In fact children under the age of 13 should never be in the front seat.  Their bodies are not large enough or strong enough to sustain the impact of a crash or an airbag.  For your baby's safety and your peace of mind it'd be best for you to keep your baby in the rear seat and get a mirror for the back seat to see what's going on.

Airbag light


This is either a problem with one or both of your airbags or the airbag connector located at the back of the glovebox has been disconnected for some reason. (ie. to prevent airbag opening when installing baby seat) (1999 miata does not have a baby seat airbag disabling sensor).

You should get your car inspected at your local mazda service to check if this is a wiring (plug disconnected) issue or one of your airbags is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

Flashing airbag light could indicate that either one of the airbags or both have a problem. Disconnecting the passenger's airbag has the same effect.

Warning! Do NOT attempt to do any kind of airbag/airbag wiring related repair yourself. Airbag problems should be addressed ONLY by certified technicians at your local Mazda service. (Airbag fixing requires for example that the car battery is disconnected, you MUST NOT attempt anything with the car battery connected).


Hope this helps.
