SOURCE: can i switch of the passenger airbag in my 2003 ford focus?

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.

SOURCE: srs airbag light is on on my 99 pontiac grand prix

If the seat belt light comes on intermittently with the belt buckled, it may have a bad switch in the buckle or a loose connection @ the switch. This may also set a diagnostic trouble code in the srs control module & keep the srs airbag light on.

Do you have anything under the drivers seat? Fords will put the airbag module under the seat, if anything is packed around it, it can cause the airbag light to come on. Remove any items around it and check the connectors are firmly in place.

SOURCE: SRS

SRS stand for Supplymentary Restraint System, The purpose of the SRS light on your instrument panel is to alert you of a potential problem with your supplemental restraint system. It should blink seven times when you turn the ignition switch to ON or START and go OFF. A possible fault in the system can lead to any of the following: (a) The light does not come on when you turn the ignition ON. (b) The light stays on after the engine starts. (c) The light comes on while you are driving. Apart from the conventional causes of these faults (faulty airbag system), majority of the light indicator problem has been attributed to ignorance while fixing or repairing mechanical and/or wiring systems within the vehicle. If the SRS indicator light alerts you to a problem, have the supplemental restraint system inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore this indication, the airbags might not inflate when you need them. Likely Causes:

  • Steering wheel modifications
  • Faulty driver/passenger seat sensors for your airbag system (located under the seats)
  • Faulty seat belt mechanism
  • Tampered system components or wiring (e.g battery jumpering)
* Sometimes, a little adjustment of your seat belts and/or seat positions might fix the indicator problem over time (if the sensors are not faulty).
Precautions:
  • Do not modify your steering wheel or any other part of the supplemental restraint system. Modifications could make the system ineffective.
  • Do not tamper with the system's components or wiring. This could cause the airbags to inflate inadvertently, possibly injuring someone very seriously.
  • Tell anyone who works on your vehicle that you have a supplemental restraint system. Failure to follow the procedures and precautions in the official service manual could result in personal injury or damage to the system.
  • If all sensors are ok, the system can be reset using appropriate tools; refer to specially trained technicians.

SOURCE: "SRS-AIRBAG SERVICE" fault message

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

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.

I have 2 problems on a 2005 Stype 1) Warning messahe 'Parkbrake fault' is permanently on, have has a mechanic check the wheels and all are moving freely. Am told I need to get it diagnostics...


You need to have both reset with specific reset tools. Faults can be cleared w/ OBII reset tool but SRS has to be done by dealer or specialty shop because it's a safety issue and the tool is REALLY EXPENSIVE

It is inspection time and my srs light in my 2001 mitsubishi eclipse is on what is this? i assume srs is something to do with airbags , or restraints not sure but could this be caused by a bad sensor or...


You are right, SRS is to do with the airbags (Secondary Restraint System, the seatbelts being the first!)

It is almost certainly a bad sensor or a fault with an airbag squib (the thing that fires the bag.)

I would advise against DIY fault-finding. Let a professional look at it using proper diagnostic equipment.

Hope this helps!
