    yes you can on some models...this will need to be done at the dealership however...or else on your dash panel somewhere around the heater controls, you will see a spot for a key. Stick your key in there and turn it. you will see a light come on letting you its now disabled....good luck!

If you have the factory selector switch yes it uses your key. If not you could remove the wires for the passenger bag. BUT I recommend aginst this.

I need to replace the clock spring, how do i do this? 1999 grand cherokee laredo


The steering wheel has to be removed to do that. Removing the steering wheel requires removing the airbag, which leads to a whole other can of worms. If you've never worked on the airbag system or don't know how to, best to leave it to someone who does or you may end up with a huge repair bill, if you accidentally deploy the airbags.

1999 Jeep cherokee Sport...turn signals don't always work


Sounds like a broken directional switch inside the column. You have an airbag system. I strongly recommend you either get yourself a chiltons or haynes manual and follow dis assembly instructions EXACTLY or have a shop do the work for you. If airbag deploys while you are working on it it can and wll ruin your day in a big hurry. (trip to hospital)

Passenger airbag turned off and the airbag light stays on. How do I turn on the passenger airbag and shut the light off?


You have a problem with the SRS. Working on this system can be very dangerous. For that reason I recommend you have this repaired by a professional.

How to replace an ignition cylinder lock on a 1999 jeep grand cherokee


Hi,

1) Disconnect and isolate Negative (Ground) battery terminal
2) Wait full 2mins for Airbag system capacitors to discharge (must disable airbag before working near steering column)
3) Insert key and turn to ON position (not start)
4) Release & remove cylinder barrel by pressing the release with a suitable tool (access through hole in the lower shroud)
5) Withdraw cylinder barrel from shroud and disconnect wiring loom from cylinder.

Installation of new barrel is the reverse of above.

NB: YOU MUST ALWAYS DISABLE THE AIRBAG FIRST !

Hope this helps...

Cheers,

AIR BAG LIGHT AND CHIME RINGS PERIODICALLY


I have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee Limited and Had similar problem. Found out that a wire/connection harness had gotten cut under PASSENGER seat.from seats moving back and forth. It's part of the airbag system, it tells airbag system if seatbelt is fastened and if occupant is in seat. Since the wire is broken, it can't report back to air back system and activates the light. try this, hope it helps.

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo ac not cooling


My 1999 limited does this. When i bought it off the guy he said that its because of some flap down by the passengers left foot. In mine the passenger air barely even blows because of this.

Abdiver:where the heck is the passenger side airbag switch and light located on my 1995 ford ranger


My 1994 F-150 doesn't have a passenger side airbag, and if the 1995 Ranger does have passenger airbags, it would not have a way to disable the passenger airbag until later models (after a bunch of kids got hurt by the airbags deploying). If I recall correctly that wasn't added until somewhere between 1999 and 2001.
