SOURCE: air bag disabling

Hi Lorraine,

I think it would be far safer for your daughter, to have a seat, even a fold up, that could lock into it's position, when in use, fitted into the rear behind the front seats....I'd also suggest that it is fitted with full harness safety belt....

I don't have a diagram and even if I had one, I would not give it to you.... I cannot understand why anyone would give a letter of authority, to disengage such an important safety device....It is something which may save her life.....

Do you never see the possibility, of carrying anyone else in the vehicle?

I'm sorry if I seem harsh.....I am with the traffic department where I live, and I have attended yesterday....

I don't know the reasons why you have applied for that exemption....All that I can say to you, is leave the air bags working and make sure you drive so that you'll never need the safety that the air bag provides....

I'm sorry if my reaction has upset you, but I wish your daughter and you, all the very best....

Regards Johngee10

SOURCE: air bag remove 98 gmc sonoma

If the brake lights will not turn off, the switch on the brake pedal is shorted or damaged. Look for it on the brake pedal under the dash. You will not need to remove the steering wheel.

SOURCE: I need to disable the air bag sensor to work on steering unit

The best way and the safest way if you are going to be removing the steering wheel ,is to unhook the battery cable,And make sure the cable cannot fall back to the terminal on it's own while your working inside.

SOURCE: on a 2004 gmc sierra, service air bag message on

There is no reset,you have to take it to a repair shop and get the codes read to see what is causing the light to come on.Usually just a sensor.When it is repaired the shop can use a scan tool to reset the light.This would be the the only way to reset the light.Hope this helps.Good luck.

SOURCE: disabling air bag system so i can replace my radiator

Replacing the radiator will not set off the air bag.
The fuse for the air bag system is marked SIR.
Supplemental Inflatable Restraint.
There is reason to worry about setting off the air bag.I have worked for GM dealerships for 20 years and have never seen an airbag deploy during vehicle service.
Good luck

Service 4 wheel drive message comes on and no lights for 2and 4 wheel drive come on. On my 2004 gmc

Often lights under a dash or indicators just blow out bulbs. If more than one thing isn't lighting and are centralized check fuses to see if its blown. Bulb or fuse. IMHO. MIGHT be a sensor on tranny too. Hope not.

Here's a video with detaile dinstrauctions and other people's fuse questions. New fuses?

Front passenger power seat quit working

Check the fuse located underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip over the plastic fuse box cover lid and you will find a diagram that shows what fuse controls the seat. Replace that fuse with the same number fuse.

Service air bag indicator light on dash stays on

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.
