In order to ensure that your air bag system is in working condition and is able to reduce the chance of injury in a moderate to severe impact, several safety precautions should be followed. These include:
Don’t Deactivate the System: Never attempt to deactivate your air bags. They’re designed to work with your seat belts to reduce the chance of injury.

Don’t Get the Passenger Front Seat Back Wet: The passenger side seat back contains important electronics, and should never be exposed to liquids.
