The disable switch is usually key operated and located on the dash. As far as I know you cannot disable this option. Sorry looks like the kids have to stay in the back till they are big enough!

First, please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

I seriously doubt that your problem is being caused by a fuse. Your Passive Restraint System has a problem. This could be caused by a driver's airbag, a passenger airbag, a seat belt pre-tensioner, a contact assembly in the steering column, or any of the crash sensors. To find out what the problem is, you must scan your Passive Restraint (or Airbag) module to retrieve fault codes. The only thing I can tell you for sure without properly diagnosing your vehicle is that your airbag system will not function in the event of a crash. The system is designed to disable itself any time the warning light is illuminated. This is to prevent accidental deployment of the airbags due to a malfunction in the system.

How to remove the steering wheel for replacement


SIR DISABLE:
DRIVER SIDE
Many service procedures require the air bag system to be disabled to prevent accidental deployment. The air bag system can maintain sufficient voltage to cause deployment for up to 2 minutes after the ignition switch is turned off, the battery ground cable is disconnected or the DERM fuse is removed. If the inflator module is disconnected from the deployment loop by the following procedure, service can begin immediately without waiting for the 2 minute time period to elapse.
  1. Turn steering wheel so that vehicle wheels are pointed straight ahead.
  2. Turn ignition switch to Lock position and remove key.
  3. Remove air bag fuse from fuse block.
  4. Remove steering column filler panel.
  5. Remove Connector Position Assurance (CPA) and disconnect yellow two-way connector at base of steering column, Fig. 1.
PASSENGER SIDE
  1. Remove air bag fuse from fuse block.
SIR ENABLE:
Driver Side
  1. Turn ignition switch to LOCK and remove key.
  2. Connect yellow two-way connector and install connector position assurance (CPA).
  3. Install steering column filler panel.
  4. Insert air bag fuse into fuse block.
  5. Turn ignition switch to RUN and verify that the air bag warning lamp flashes seven times then turns off.
Passenger Side
  1. Turn ignition switch to LOCK and remove key.
  2. Insert air bag fuse into fuse block.
  3. Turn ignition switch to RUN and verify that the air bag warning lamp flashes seven times then turns off.

Disconnect the battery form the car. Remove the airbag fuse under the bonnet. Do the bumper replacement then re-install the fuse before putting the battery back in.

How to I disable the airbag on my 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac so I can change out the cruise control buttons?


Remove RCM fuse from dash panel fuse box. Fuse F2.10 10 amps. Turn key onfor 30 seconds and see that Air Bag light is lit. Now disconnect battery negative cable for 1 minute, leave disconnected while service is done. now the air bag is disabled. To repower the system turn key on, insert fuse. connect battery, now turn key off for 10 seconds, then turn key on and watch the air bag light. it should go on then after the air bag module is happy that everything is ok, it will turn off.

Need to turn off the passenger airbag i have kids want to know which fuse is the passenger airbag and is it going to go off when i pull the fuse


sorry... but it is not possible to disable the front air bags

matter of fact, any technician that disables the air bag could be charged with a crime

however, there is a method, not used much anymore because all newer vehicles have this already installed

you will need to see a dealer
they can order a bypass kit
this requires some special paper work

It is a lot easier just to unplug or remove the airbag, but again...a tech could get in trouble for doing this....you however, can do it without issues

How can i disable passanger air bag on 1999 z3


It's never a great idea to dis connect any safety feature on a vehicle. But should you wish to do so here are two possible options. BMW may have a key operated switch (usually ignition) to disarm the passanger side airbag (usually in the case of rear facing child seat being fitted) OR if you manually disconnect the airbag (NOT reccommended) you will have to insert a resistance into the passanger bag circuit of equivelant to the air bag that was removed.In order to maintain the self diagnosis check system.

Air bag warning light stays on on my mini one


That means your air bag is disabled and will not deploy in an accident. Only have a certified tech work on an air bag.
