Turn off passenger airbag

I need to be able to turn off/disconnect the passenger airbag in my car but I don't have a manual for this vehicle to determine if there is a way to do this. I need to separate the kids and the best option is to put the oldest (5 years old) up front. Can I disconnect this?

Where is the passenger airbag deactivation switch?


Your vehicle did not come with a manual [driver controlled] deactivation switch. The passenger side airbag on this car is controlled by a switch built into the bottom seat cushion of the passenger seat. If you place an object heavy enough on the passenger seat to activate that switch, the airbag will be activated. If it is activated when the seat is empty, then the switch inside the seat bottom is either defective or someone has disconnected it. Look under the passenger side seat for an electrical connector which may be unplugged.

The 05 645bmw i believe has three fuse boxs location which one i should check for the airbag fuse and what fuse number?


There is no such thing as an airbag fuse. The airbag is run through the drive train module. If what you are trying to do is turn off the airbag on the passenger side, some vehicles such as my Toyota truck have a little key hole option where you can turn the airbag off. If you don't have that, you can remove the whole airbag out, however, disconnect the battery for at least 3 minutes first in order to avoid getting punched in the face.

Turn on the air bag passages side light says that the air bag is off want to turn on 2004Nissan titan


The passenger side airbag does not have a switch that you, as the operator, can turn on or off. There are sensors in the seat and seat belt system that determine when the passenger side airbag should be activated. Attached is a link to the owners manual for your vehicle. Check pages 1-20 and 1-21 for details.

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.

What fuse number do I pull to disconnect passenger side airbag. I have a 2001 dodge Intrepid. I don't have the manual for the car. Hope somebody can help..


I don't think you can disconnect just one side. The only vehicles you can turn off the passenger side are trucks.
The air bag module is powered by two fuses but it controls both sides.

Don't know what year model car you have. Some year models have a switch you can turn the passenger air bag off. Check you owners manual in the dash/controls section and the air bag section

Hello, I hace a passat2006. Iworked on the car to


If the light is on but the computer shows no fault then it maybe an issue where you tapped into that as a power source you were looking for. try disconnecting the battery negative terminal for 60 seconds then reconnect and see if that resets everything. This assumes you don't have a switch that turns that airbag off that just needs to be reset. Doing the disconnect on the battery may reset that switch as well. I know some vehicles in the year were equipped with a switch to turn the airbag on the passenger seat off as it was an issue of safety for some occupants at the time, I am not sure if your vehicle had such a switch or not but it would be listed in the Owners manual if it does.

How do I switch off the airbag in the passenger seat (to enable use of baby seat) ?


Personally i would never put a baby in a front passenger seat of a car fitted with an air bag. On saying that, there should be a key hole to turn the airbag off, using the ignition key. where this is situated should be on the centre dash between the seats or at the side of the dash near the pass side of the vehicle. A light should illuminate when the airbag is off to warn you that it is Disconnected/off. your owners manual should shed some light on this. Failing that stop off at ANY audi dealer and they will tell you.

Can i switch of the passenger airbag in my 2003 ford focus?


The passenger airbag is what is called a smart generation airbag, there is a sensor in the passenger seat that tells the airbag control module to turn off the bag if the weight is less than 50 pounds in the paswsenger seat, i.e. a child, I work for Ford and we will not turn off or tamper with or disconnect the airbag, why? if you get in a wreck and are hurt because we disconnected or otherwise defeated the airbag we would be liable for damages and a lawsuit.
