If your Focus is a new model the passenger side airbag has a sensor that in effect weighs what is in the passenger seat, and will turn itself off if the weight is below a min, you will see an indicator lite up on the dash indicating this. If your Focus does not have this smart system then I recomment that you not tamper in any way with the passive restraint air bag system, to do so could cause grave personnel injury. Consault your local Ford dealer over the phone they will help.

How do i turn off pasanger front air bag mondao 06


This car has a "Smart" Airbag system control module, if the passenger is not over 50 pounds then the system senses that and the airbag is turned off automatically. So you can't turn it off.

How to turn off my airbag on toyota celica 2000


is it the pass side air bag you will also need the seat air bag to be turn'd off to. you need to take to a garage. and say its needed to be turn'd off there will be a small charge. ( baby car seat is needed fitting) you can buy a air bag software kit to disconnect the air bags on that seat area. op-com or other makes just check it has the softwear to disable air bags.

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.

I have a alfa omega car seat and cannot get it to fit into my dodge truck.I can get it in but the front seat has to be all the way almost and makes it real difficult for my passengers ,so what can we do?


We had our rear facing car seat in the back seat of our car , but when we went camping with our truck we put it in the front seat (center) . Our baby loved that she could sit and still see us.
Our truck was older , so did not have air bags which could be dangerous to the child.
Some newer trucks have a switch to turn off the passenger side air bag.

How can i disable passanger air bag on 1999 z3


It's never a great idea to dis connect any safety feature on a vehicle. But should you wish to do so here are two possible options. BMW may have a key operated switch (usually ignition) to disarm the passanger side airbag (usually in the case of rear facing child seat being fitted) OR if you manually disconnect the airbag (NOT reccommended) you will have to insert a resistance into the passanger bag circuit of equivelant to the air bag that was removed.In order to maintain the self diagnosis check system.

Disabling the passenger's airbag


I work for Ford. In our vehciles, we have an "***: sensor in the seat that senses the wieght in the passenger seat. If no one is there, air bag is deactivated. If a light wieght, slow deployment, If over 150 lbs, regular deployment.

You womer manual should tell you if you have this. Also, call your delaer service department, they answer these questions all the time. god luck/
