Q: How to disable passenger airbag in work van?

asked by on

I want to disable my passenger airbag so I can have a car seat. It's a 2008 express work van

My car has 140000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It’s always advisable to transport small children in the back seat. However, if your van does not have back seats, there should be an airbag off switch located on the passenger side of the dash. The vehicle key must be inserted to turn the switch and disable the airbag. Detailed instructions on how to do this can be found in your owner’s manual.
