It likely is a bad passenger air bag. Did you try switching it back to off on the switch,and unhooking the battery for 5 minutes.

94 gmc sierra 4.3 v6 manual, won't turn over, can hear fuel pump start when accessories turned on..won't fire, girl who needs help


The first thing I would check is fuel pressure. This type of fuel injection requires a minimum fuel pressure in order to operate. If fuel pressure is as little as one psi below minimum the vehicle will not start. You can try squirting a couple of shots of carb spray into the air snorkel while somebody cranks the engine over. If the engine starts and then dies you now you fpdeffinetely have a fuel issue. If the engine still won't start check for spark. Let me know what you find. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

How can i shut off front passenger airbag


If the truck is a 2 door then it comes equipped with a switch operated with the ignition key to turn the passenger air bag off. If it is a 3 or 4 door with a back seat there is no such switch. In order to install an on/off switch to turn the passenger air bag off you will need approval, in writing, from the NHTSA otherwise it is illegal to do so. http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Shoppers/Air+Bags/ON-OFF+Switch+Requests

Probably passenger temp actuator. Make sure connectors are fully seated on right I/P junction block. If they are, it's more than likely a faulty actuator. Dash pad and air distribution ductwork have to be removed to access actuator.
