Good point. I was just venturing a guess as to why someone would want to turn it off.Fortimir said:But we all know that it has specific weight thresholds, and we believe that a childseat and a child may not be heavy enough to set it off... at the most it would turn it on to a medium setting.
Some people are afraid of any intrusion into their own control of their destiny. Some have been or know of people who actually have been hurt worse by the airbag - it is a one size fits all. Some people might have their 100 lb Golden in the seat (in a doggie harness, of course) that would by weight activate but be very very dangerous to the animal if deployed.Editguy said:Good point.

The air bag status indicator light is just that, a status light to show you what state the system is in. The system decides if it is "enabled" or "disabled" based on its readings.achieftain said:AND
yes, it can be turned off, otherwise there would be no need for a light telling you it was on.
Oh please don't even think about disabling the passenger air bag system. If you unplug the connector you will set codes in the system and cause it to be totally disabled.Duner said:Can passenger airbag be turned off?
Thanks for replies!
Cool, can you give us a translation in English, please?BIG JOHN said:Oh please don't even think about disabling the passenger air bag system. If you unplug the connector you will set codes in the system and cause it to be totally disabled.
The PPS will set a DTC, and then communicate with the SDM via non GMLAN circuit.
• The SDM will set DTC B0081.
• The SDM disables the I/P module deployment loop.
• The PPS will turn ON the passenger air bag status OFF indicator.
• The SDM commands the AIR BAG indicator ON via serial data communications

BIG JOHN said:sure
If you unplug the seat or remove any fuses you will disable the entire S.I.R. system (including the drivers side air bag) and the S.I.R. light will be on at all times.
Let the good times roll
