So your saying that people with older cars that don't have air bags are all going to die if they get into an accidentI personally will not give out the info because if I get in an accident with You, I don't want your death on my mind because Your airbags did not deploy because they were disabled.
yeah for what purpose? heck your insurance would be voided if you were in an accident (whether hurt or not) and when they saw you airbags didnt fire when they should have...or upon notice that their not their at all. they'll void your insurance right there...so if you are hurt and/or some1 else has their car damaged b/c of you or is hurt....you way f'd.
Thanks for the info.UltegraSTI is right, If the insurance company finds out they will drop you like a ton of bricks or they will raise you insurance payment sky high.
but if you would like too disable them you can remove the center console between the two front seats and there is two metal boxes between the e-brake and the shifter they are the air bag controlers. you unplug them they will be disabled. I dont know how to remove the one in the steering wheel but the passenger one can be removed by takeing out the glove box and removeing some of the duct work and you can get right to it. plus they make a cool little tray that goes in place of the passenger side air bag. I wouldn't go removeing them though because they still can go off in the removal proccess even if they are dissabled.
If you are going to do it be careful and be safe.
For your son's safety, maybe consider Ford'sPlus the reason why i want to disable them is so that i can have my son sit in the front with me and i don't have to worry about him getting killed by the airbag in case of an accident.
Why do you think they recommend that........ ummmmmm mabye because the AIRBAG will kill him.For your son's safety, maybe consider Ford'sPlus the reason why i want to disable them is so that i can have my son sit in the front with me and i don't have to worry about him getting killed by the airbag in case of an accident.
recommendation....."Secure children in the rear seat".
I have plans to put something in the dash where the airbag is, and i am going to change the steering wheel.A better option would be to find someone to install an on/off switch with an indicator light for the passenger airbag, like I have in my 2003 Ranger. That way, you will still have the airbags in the car if you sell it and also be able to use them if an adult is in the passenger seat. If you sold a car to some one who then had an accident in that car and was injured or killed because the airbag was either disconnected or otherwise disabled you could be held liable. You are right to be concerened about the effect a first generation airbag can have on a child which is why it is recommended that children sit in the back seat of an airbag equipped car.
