Can I disable my passenger side airbag?

I am going to be traveling tomorrow, and really need to put my daughter in the front seat to store stuff in the back. I am not going to, though, unless the passenger side airbag is disabled. So, I was wondering if I can pull a fuse or something to disable the airbag.

    Thank you so much! I leave tomorrow, and the trip is like 800+ miles. Indiana to Texas. I have been searching the net for awhile, and everyone either wants to gripe in the posts about not to, or they want to charge like $25 dollars! You're a Godsend!! Thank you!

Pull your airbag fuse out (It might be labeled Airbag, or SRS)
This will have your airbag warning light stay on in your dash, until you put the fuse back in.

WARNING : I did NOT tell you that... Don't worry there is no way the air bags can go off just by removing or replacing the fuse, but I'm just covering my bases here. In the event of an accident, I don't want to be the guy that told you to pull the fuse out (this disables both air bags), if you do pull the fuse you are responsible for that action if, god forbid, something happens.

Turn taurus air bag off


The airbag is a federally-required component of the vehicle. Most states require that the bags be installed and in good service condition. The only exceptions are for pickup trucks that may require the need to install a car seat in the front passenger side. They may have a switch to disable the passenger airbag under these conditions. Other vehicles have a seat sensor that detects the amount of weight on the front passenger seat and will automatically disable the airbag when there is no one in the seat or if the person in the seat is under a certain weight, indicating that they may be injured by the activation of the airbag. Otherwise, it is unwise, and in many jurisdictions, *******, to disable an airbag. Thus, although there may be ways to do it, you probably won't get any help here as we are bound to terms of service on this site, as well as that we don't want or need the potential legal liability issues that such information could bring down upon us.

How to disable passenger side air bags, for children and small passengers


You don't have that smart stuff for weight. You can't turn it off. If you don't think they should be in front, because of age or height. Put them in back. I haven't seen a van yet that had this option.

Always disable the air bag system first, to prevent accidental deployment of the air bags. The main airbag module is beneath carpeting under passengers seat. To remove passengers seat, At the rear of the seat remove the two bolts securing the tracks to the floor, tilt the seat up and towards the instrument panel, unplug any electrical connectors beneath and remove the seat. the front plastic track covers can remain in place while the seat track tabs are lifted out of the slots on the floor.

How do I disable my 2005 dodge neon passenger airbag so a child can ride in the front seat?


I doesn't look like you can disable it. The manual says all children should be in the back seat and never in a rear facing child seat in the front seat. manual is here : https://duckduckgo.com/l/?kh=-1&uddg=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dodge.com%2Fdownload%2Fpdf%2Fmanuals%2F2005_PL_Neon.pdf

Can I disable the passenger airbag so as my three month old can travel in the front in his rear facing car seat? Or is that illegal anyway?!Cheers Vix


The only way to disable it in a four door sedan is to pull the fuse.Which I don't recommend, because in doing so also disables the drivers side, too.To be on the safe side you may just let the baby continue riding in the back seat.

Air bag off


Your car has second generation airbags and it monitors weight in the passenger seat. If a child sits in the seat the computer looks at the weight and turns off the airbag so not to deploy in a crash. If you put anything in the seat like a purse or briefcase the computer will think its a baby and turn off the airbag.

Disabling Airbags on Mazda 323f 1995


Well, for one you not suppose to put a baby seat in the front of the car. But anyways with an older airbag control system like that you cannot just disable one airbag, if you unplug the passenger side airbag then in an accident neither airbags will deploy.
