Assuming that you mean a simple switch, jumper or similar thing, no.The seat passenger sensor stopped working. 3rd time. Is there a way to bypass the sensor and just leave the airbag on.
seems the sensor in the seat isn't working. I just checked and there is a recall for this. If I can just bypass it so it's always on that would be better IMO. If not I guess I will have to do the recall.Assuming that you mean a simple switch, jumper or similar thing, no.
Are you saying that you have had three sensors fail? What are the circumstances?
Mine was replaced just before I bought it. PO said it wasn’t a big deal. I want mine to work correctly and not go off on my granddaughter who is under the weight limit to turn it on.The recall shouldn't cost you anything other than a bit of time at a dealership while they replace the seat cushion and the sensor. It should be about an hour assuming they have the replacement part in stock.
There is no way currently to bypass the personal presence sensor, at least that I am aware of. JohnWR is our resident authority on the PPS.
The unit that emulates the seat sensor just makes the car think that the seat is occupied by a passenger of sufficient weight. Using the unit referenced in post 7 just means that the seat belt light would always be on unless you fasten it across the seat, but it doesn't disable the whole air bag system. You could have used one of those as long as you were never going to have a child in that seat, and the system would still have been functional - for less than $100.I just had the module replaced yesterday. Cost was $1,100.00 Unfortunately it is a very expensive repair that requires replacement and programming a module in the system. By disabling the seat sensor can be done the downside is it disables the entire airbag system.
