Disconnect battery and wait 30 min, remove glove box compartment and up under the dash you will see wires from the air bag to a connector. Unplug it and remove 2 or 4 nuts and then remove air bag from the top of the dash board.

SOURCE: passenger side airbag light wont stay off

This subject is covered in the 2006 Ford Escape Owner's Manual starting on page 116 under the heading of "Front Passenger Sensing System". I highly recommend that you read this FIRST.

If you do not have your 2006 Ford Escape Owner's Manual you can get a free PDF version HERE. (direct link to file)

If after reading the Owner's Manual, you are convinced that the problem is a malfunction (not normal operation) and is not caused by operator error, I recommend that you take your vehicle to a certified auto repair technician (or Ford Dealer) for diagnosis and repair. I DO NOT recommend attempting ANY KIND of do-it-yourself diagnosis or repair on any supplemental restraint system components without the proper training and equipment.

How do I remove the center console where the heater control switches are located on a 2006 Pt Cruiser GT


DESCRIPTION A manual temperature control (MTC) single zone type heating-A/C system or a manually controlled heater-only system is standard equipment on this model, depending on market.
To maintain the performance level of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, the engine cooling system must be properly maintained. The use of a bug screen is not recommended. Any obstructions in front of the radiator or A/C condenser will reduce the performance of the A/C and engine cooling systems.
The engine cooling system includes the radiator, thermostat, radiator hoses and the engine coolant pump. Refer to 7 - Cooling for more information before opening or attempting any service to the engine cooling system.

All vehicles are equipped with a common heater, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) housing (1). The heating-A/C system combines heating, ventilating and A/C (if equipped) capabilities in a single HVAC housing mounted within the passenger compartment beneath the instrument panel. The HVAC housing includes:
  1. Mode-air doors (2)
  2. A/C evaporator (A/C system only) (3)
  3. Recirculation-air door and actuator (A/C system only) (4)
  4. Blower motor (5)
  5. Mode control cable (6)
  6. Temperature control cable (7)
  7. Heater core (8)
  8. Blend-air door (9)
On heater-only systems, the A/C evaporator is omitted from the HVAC housing and is replaced with an air restrictor plate.
Based upon the system mode selected, conditioned air can exit the standard heater-only or optional heater-A/C housing through one or a combination of the three main housing outlets: defrost, panel or floor. The defrost and panel outlets are located on the top of the HVAC air distribution housing and the floor outlets are located on each side of the distribution housing. Once the conditioned air exits the HVAC housing, it is further directed through molded plastic ducts to the various outlets within the vehicle interior. These outlets and their locations are as follows:
  1. Defroster Outlet- A single large defroster outlet is located in the center of the instrument panel top cover, near the base of the windshield.
  2. Side Window Demister Outlets- There are two side window demister outlets, one is located at each outboard end of the instrument panel top cover, near the belt line at the A-pillars.
  3. Panel Outlets- There are four panel outlets in the instrument panel, one located near each outboard end of the instrument panel facing the rear of the vehicle and two located near the top of the instrument panel center bezel.
  4. Front Floor Outlets- There are two front floor outlets, one located on each side of the center tunnel near the dash panel.
  5. Rear Floor Outlets- There are two rear floor outlets, one located on each side of the floor panel center tunnel near the front of each rear seat foot well.
  6. REMOVAL
    WARNING: Disable the airbag system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the airbag system. Failure to follow these instructions may result in accidental airbag deployment and possible serious or fatal injury.


    NOTE: Illustration shown with instrument panel removed for clarity. (Refer to 23 - Body/Instrument Panel/BEZEL, Instrument Panel - Removal).(Refer to 24 - Heating and Air Conditioning/Controls/CONTROL, A/C and Heater - Removal).(Refer to 23 - Body/Instrument Panel/COVER, Steering Column Opening - Removal). 5. Remove the screw (1) that secures the temperature control cable (2) to the left side of the HVAC air distribution housing (3). 6. Disconnect the temperature control cable from the blend door pivot lever (4) and remove the cable from the vehicle.
