Question about 1996 Honda Civic

Disable passenger airbag

I understandthat if I want to disable my passenger airbag I need to get permission from the NHTSA, then find a shop to install an on/off switch.
I'll skip the long story about why... but how complex is disabling the system on my 1996 Honda Civic DX?
Thanks much!

Ran into experienced Honda mechanic who simply detached wires in the proper places. No shop will touch this because of liability concerns. Later models might have more sophisticated back up.

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.

Disable passenger airbag suzuki alto


Unless the vehicle is fitted with a manual 'OFF' switch, then presumably there is no other simple way of disabling the passenger airbag without disconnecting the air-bag module. This is not recommended however and may disrupt the operation of the SRS system.

Disable passenger airbag


There is no user operated key to disable passenger airbag like on most newer cars, for what you are attempting just disconnect the battery! This should allow you to remove the dash without activating the airbag!

How can i shut off front passenger airbag


If the truck is a 2 door then it comes equipped with a switch operated with the ignition key to turn the passenger air bag off. If it is a 3 or 4 door with a back seat there is no such switch. In order to install an on/off switch to turn the passenger air bag off you will need approval, in writing, from the NHTSA otherwise it is illegal to do so. http://www.safercar.gov/Vehicle+Shoppers/Air+Bags/ON-OFF+Switch+Requests

Need to disable passenger airbag in lexus 2003 rx300


if you open the passanger door there is a slot for the key. you will need to press the button on the circular key to pull out the real key.  Don't do that!The airbag is a safety device which can save the life of the passenger in case of an accident!However,as the Corvette is a 2-seat car,if you are talking about a child,I strongly recommend you to install an aftermarket Passenger Airbag ON-OFF switch.That is possible even for older car models

Disabling Airbags on Mazda 323f 1995


Well, for one you not suppose to put a baby seat in the front of the car. But anyways with an older airbag control system like that you cannot just disable one airbag, if you unplug the passenger side airbag then in an accident neither airbags will deploy.

Can I disable my passenger side airbag?


Pull your airbag fuse out (It might be labeled Airbag, or SRS)
This will have your airbag warning light stay on in your dash, until you put the fuse back in.

WARNING : I did NOT tell you that... Don't worry there is no way the air bags can go off just by removing or replacing the fuse, but I'm just covering my bases here. In the event of an accident, I don't want to be the guy that told you to pull the fuse out (this disables both air bags), if you do pull the fuse you are responsible for that action if, god forbid, something happens.
