SOURCE: 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.

Children in car seats should never be put in the front seat.  In fact children under the age of 13 should never be in the front seat.  Their bodies are not large enough or strong enough to sustain the impact of a crash or an airbag.  For your baby's safety and your peace of mind it'd be best for you to keep your baby in the rear seat and get a mirror for the back seat to see what's going on.

You need to leave this one to the dealer as there is no key switch in this model like most GMs have. It is very dangerous working with the airbag system if you are not trained as the propellants used border on being explosive.

Beyond this, it is still a bad idea to put the baby in front unless absolutely necessary as the rear seat provides better protection.

Airbag light reset sx4


There is a manufacturer's recall on this if it's caused by a failure in the front passenger weight detection system.

The system has a minimum weight required in the front passenger seat for the airbag to deploy in an accident (if no one is in the front passenger seat during an accident, the airbag does NOT deploy). If the system fails and the car cannot determine if someone is in the front passenger seat, the light illuminates and in an accident the passenger airbag WILL deploy, even if there's no one in that seat.

The purpose of the system is to prevent airbag deployment for a lightweight child in the front seat. The fix is to replace the seat weight sensor mat...free if it's the recall item.

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.

Common fault on FORD

Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.

Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

Airbags


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.
