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.

it has to be turned off with the dealers computer,another way i do it for customers with a baby seat is to disconnect battery ----then locate air bag -- find the wires and cut one and fit a switch in glove box .

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.
