The passenger airbag is disabled automatically, the system is called the "smart Airbag system" anytime there is less than 50 pounds in the pass seat (like a child) the air bag is turned off by the control module, there is no manual override switch like the older systems have.

Turn taurus air bag off


The airbag is a federally-required component of the vehicle. Most states require that the bags be installed and in good service condition. The only exceptions are for pickup trucks that may require the need to install a car seat in the front passenger side. They may have a switch to disable the passenger airbag under these conditions. Other vehicles have a seat sensor that detects the amount of weight on the front passenger seat and will automatically disable the airbag when there is no one in the seat or if the person in the seat is under a certain weight, indicating that they may be injured by the activation of the airbag. Otherwise, it is unwise, and in many jurisdictions, *******, to disable an airbag. Thus, although there may be ways to do it, you probably won't get any help here as we are bound to terms of service on this site, as well as that we don't want or need the potential legal liability issues that such information could bring down upon us.

How to disable passenger airbag in 2013 gmc yukon


Look in your owners manual

Maybe you can't, unless you can find it in the manual

Usually the occupied seat sensor, adjusts the passenger
air bag, based on weight

May have to ask at the dealer service dept & have the doctors
letter, to do anything about it

How I don't know,short of unplugging the air bag & installing a
test adapter, which is to work on the vehicles systems,not legal
to leave in the system

HOW DO I TURN OFF OR ON THE PASSENGER SIDE AIR BAG ?


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.

Where is the passenger airbag on and off switch?


The passenger air bag is turned on or off with sensors in the passenger seat and the seat belt.
The sensors disable the passenger air bag if the seat is unocupied or if a car seat or booster chair is in use and installed properly.

Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Switch
The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch:
  • is located on the instrument panel to the right of the climate controls.
  • contains a light emitting diode (LED) that indicates when the PAD switch is activated (passenger air bag disabled).
  • allows the passenger air bag deployment circuit to be disabled using the ignition key.
  • should be used whenever a child safety seat is being used in the front passenger seating position.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prove Out the System
Prove out the system means to turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:
  • fail to light.
  • remain lit continuously.
  • flash.
The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the RUN position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and an SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five tone bursts. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Active Commands
This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag indicator, passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) lamp and chime. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator, the PAD lamp, chime and the chime are activated simultaneously for approximately four seconds. All devices are deactivated automatically.
