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.

I have a light on that says passenger side airbag off? how do i resolve this problem? i drive a Bmw x3 oi

some x3 cars have a "lock" that you can turn off/on the airbag on the passenger side for a frontseat baby might find it inside the glovebox or on the side of the dash.also some (that dont have the switch,but the previous owner has has had the bag disconnected by the dealer)may need to have a dealer reactivate the bag.(in England its inside the glovebox)

Wife has just had baby need to turn off passenger airbag on jaguar 2004 s type ,how do i do it

First, i dont think having the baby in the front seat is a good idea, the baby should be in the rearseat,to turn off the airbag you will need to have the dealer do this, this is not a simple job,they just dont unplug it, rather there a wiring harness and switch and module that need to be wired in, if the pass/side air bag was disabled incorrectly then none of the sirbags would operate in a crash,hope this helps,

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.
