Re: how do I turn off passanger side airbag in a 2005
The key switch is for rearward facing seats for infants/babies upto 9 months.after that age it is best to buy a seat that can be adapted to grow with the child.they are expensive but you can use them in most cars so when you have "little one"you have the seat and when son/daughter have it they have the seat.also,the child should only be in the rear of the car.NEVER in the front.
WHAT PRICE CHILDS SAFETY ??????

Yes!!! You can replace it yourself.(Dont let others fool you into paying extra or telling you otherwise.)
-This is for pontiac grand ams 1999-2005 only.
-There are no frontal airbag impact sensors nor are there belt tensioners.
-The SRS system consists of only the (driver airbag) ,(passanger airbag),and the (airbag control module) in 1999-2005 grand ams.
If you crash/wrecked and airbags deployed you will need.
-Driver and Passanger airbags
-Airbag control module
You can buy cheap airbags from a local junkyard any year from 1999-2005 will fit.
You can also find an airbag control module for cheap at your local junk yard BUT YOU MUST FIND ONE WITH THE SAME (PART NO.) AND (SERV NO.) AS THE ONE YOUR REPLACING.The (part no.) and (serv no.) should be at top left of airbag control module.However it does (Not) have to match numbers under barcode or the numbers at the far bottom right of airbag control module.
After you get both airbags and airbag module
-Disconnect car Battery
-Replace airbag module (under passanger seat)
-Double check all connections and connect battery.
Congradulations!Your airbags should be back online.
Notes: Two torx 35 head screws hold the driver airbag, access is through two holes behind steering column.
To remove passanger airbag you have to remove glovebox it uses (7mm)screws.After you remove you will see a pair of (10mm)screws holding airbag.
To remove airbag control module First remove passanger seat 2(15mm).Then after removing you will notice a raises area kinda like a vertical bump.Take a razor blade to your carpet and cut it to explose the module underneath.
The airbag module is held by three screws depending on the year of your car it varies.Most likely 3 (10mm).
Disconnect the battery negative terminal.
1. Wait at least 90 seconds after the ignition switch is
turned off and the negative (-) terminal cable is
disconnected from the battery before starting the
(The SRS is equipped with a back-up power source, so
if work is started within 90 seconds of disconnecting
the negative (-) terminal cable of the battery, the SRS
may be deployed).
2. Do not directly expose the steering pad, front
passenger airbag assembly, center airbag sensor
assembly, front airbag sensor, front seat inner belt
assembly, seat position sensor, occupant
classification ECU, front seat side airbag assembly,
side airbag sensor, curtain shield airbag assembly,
rear airbag sensor or front seat outer belt assembly to
hot air or flames.
The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a
while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the
airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself
in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but
either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and
get it fixed; sometimes, scanner reader could helpfull to know exactly what fault code is stored there. keep in mind that this isnt an OBD codes reader, this is more specific for Airbag Systems.
Also, isnt rare to know that the airbag warning light is indicating the airbag(s) may not be functionig. As it says in the manual, "Ignoring the AIRBAG warning light in your instrument panel could mean you won't have the airbags to protect you, (or your passangers), in a collision...have the airbag system checked right away". Always wear your seatbelt. On 2004 there is a light on the passanger grab bar that indicates the passanger airbag is off. This happens when a child is in the seat to protect the child from the sudden force of an airbag. It can also be fooled by a package or briefcase on the seat. This is normal. When an adult sits on the passanger side the light should go off. This information was an addition to the 2004 manual.
if there isn't a key switch in the dash, then the airbag has a sensor in the passenger seat which measures the weight of the occupant in that seat and if occupant is to light in weight the airbag will be shut off automatically. otherwise if occupant is heavier than 110 lbs the airbag should then be on.
Well in trucks there is a switch on the dash were you insert the key and turn it off,but most passinger cars have a switch in the seat that activates the air bag to turn it on.You may want to look in the owners manual.Well hope this helps and good luck.
as long as the srs light is not on the srs system is functioning properly. There is a passanger seat recognition senser and some vehicles are equiped with baby smart-which disables the passanger front air bag when a mercedes child seat is placed on the passanger front seat. More than likley the airbag is being manually switched off. there should be a place on the dash or center console to place the mechanical part of your smart key into and turn the air bag on or off.Once the system is reactivated clear the message in the cluster or turn off your ignition and remove the key and then reinsert key and turn on-this should clear the memmory of the cluster and your message center should not display any warnings
