SOURCE: disable passenger airbag

Ran into experienced Honda mechanic who simply detached wires in the proper places. No shop will touch this because of liability concerns. Later models might have more sophisticated back up.

SOURCE: Can I disable my passenger side airbag?

Pull your airbag fuse out (It might be labeled Airbag, or SRS)
This will have your airbag warning light stay on in your dash, until you put the fuse back in.

WARNING : I did NOT tell you that... Don't worry there is no way the air bags can go off just by removing or replacing the fuse, but I'm just covering my bases here. In the event of an accident, I don't want to be the guy that told you to pull the fuse out (this disables both air bags), if you do pull the fuse you are responsible for that action if, god forbid, something happens.

Check with your local dealer on that...They may be able to install an on-off switch or shut it down for you,... especially because you have a really good reason for it!

The passenger side airbag is off on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe... how do I turn it back on ?


There is no "switch" the passenger airbag (referred to as a smart airbag system) is controlled by a weight sensing sensor in the seat cushion, the airbag is disabled anytime that something less than about 50 pounds is placed on the seat cushion. If you put items on the seat under that weight like a bag of groceries for instance it can confuse the system and turn off the passenger airbag. What you need to do now is contact your local dealer and make an appt. to have the system scanned to see what the problem is that is keeping the passenger side airbag disabled. Good Luck.

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.

Disable passenger airbag suzuki alto


Unless the vehicle is fitted with a manual 'OFF' switch, then presumably there is no other simple way of disabling the passenger airbag without disconnecting the air-bag module. This is not recommended however and may disrupt the operation of the SRS system.

How do I disable the passenger side airbag on a 2011 Chevy Impala?


Generally speaking, you don't. Only trucks give you the option of turning off the passenger side airbag in the event you are hauling a child car seat.
You could unplug the air bag, but then the entire system would be disabled.

I need to disable my passenger side airbag in my 2002 Subaru Forester because I carry 4 children to and from school and sporting events.


There isn't an option to disable the passenger side airbag on these vehicles. Other than trying to re-wire something but that's not going to be a good idea in my mind.

Disable the passenger air bag


the passenger airbag is disabled automatically, the system is called the "smart Airbag system" anytime there is less than 50 pounds in the pass seat (like a child) the air bag is turned off by the control module, there is no manual override switch like the older systems have.

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.
