How to turn off front air bag Mercedes ml 350

You cannot just disable one air bag . You can disable all of them by pulling the fuse that covers the entire air bag circuit and then you will get the air bag warning constantly on the dash and no air bag protection.

If you try disconnecting the battery and then disconnecting one air bag by fiddling with the wiring connectors to that bag, the air bag warning will show and you will possibly cause the entire system to be shut down.

There are no cheap mickey mouse fixes. If you have an issue with the front air bag because the warning has displayed then take it to Mercedes and have them fix it. If you cannot afford that you are driving the wrong brand of car.

Chevy tracker horn does not work with air bag disabled

There should be a fuse for the SIR system.
You could also cut the wires to the bag if you know for sure which ones.

I don't believe there is a switch, but if you locate the air bag module or air bag box, then disconnect it, then I think that will disable the air bag.

This first post is WITH AN AIR BAG:

With Air Bag Before removing the steering wheel, disable the air bag system
Disarming the System To disarm the air bag system, simply disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Isolate the battery cable by taping up any exposed metal areas of the cable. This will keep the cable from accidentally contacting the battery and causing deployment of the air bag. Allow the system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, although 10 minutes is recommended, to allow for the dissipation of any residual energy.

CAUTION Before removing the steering wheel, disable the air bag system (refer to Section 6). Failure to do so could result in accidental air bag deployment and possible injury.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and disable the air bag system.
  2. Set the front tires in a straight-ahead position.

  1. Remove the air bag module retaining nuts from behind the steering wheel.
  2. Remove the air bag module.
  3. If equipped, remove the cruise control switch.
  4. Disconnect the horn wiring.
  5. Remove the steering wheel retaining nut.
  6. Scribe a line mark on the steering wheel and steering shaft if there is not one already.
Use a puller to separate the wheel from the column

  1. Remove the steering wheel using a suitable puller.
To install:
  1. To install, align the scribe marks on the steering shaft with the steering wheel.
  2. Ensure the wheel compresses the 2 locktabs on the clockspring.

Passenger side air bag disable

The disable switch is usually key operated and located on the dash. As far as I know you cannot disable this option. Sorry looks like the kids have to stay in the back till they are big enough!
