    Default passenger airbag

    hi guys read a few post on this but none give me the answer i need, as u may know the car uses a transponder in the seat, but being my car which has ****** all extra wiring and features so i doupt it will have the recivers in the seat, so im asking if i can put a switch in, surely the transponder reciver is a on or off, so i just need a switch to make the circut, if that makes sense.
    anyone know where these would be wired etc?

    cheers

    If it were that simple, then I'm sure someone on here would have done it by now.

    The airbag system will have a fault and you will have warning lamps the receiver or transponder is designed to talk to the airbag ecu. You might potentially cause the airbag system to fail if you had an accident. There is also 2 circuits to disable the violet and the yellow one. You also have pre tensioners on the front seat belts as well. What about the airbags in the side of the seat and of you have them like I do the upper side curtain airbag. A lot to consider bud probably easier in the back seat.

    Don't mess with the complex safety / airbag system m8. Stick baby in the back, or get A Main Vx Dealership Franchisee to supply and retrofit, if indeed that is an option.

    stolen from migweb

    The following is the advice the dealer obtained from Vauxhall Tech, relayed to me on the phone. I can make no claim as to it's accuracy as I didn't speak directly to Vauxhall Tech myself, but have no reason to doubt it as I'm sure they'd do chargeable work if they could!

    The front passenger airbag cannot be physically removed nor can it be programmed out individually with tech 2 - they declined to say if this was a technical limitation or a liability issue. When I enquired about retrofitting the front seat occupancy detection system for use with a Vauxhall child seat I was told that; 1. It would be too costly (£2k +) and 2. They wouldn't do it anyway for liability reasons. So if the vehicle does not have the ability to detect a transponder equipped child seat then no rear facing seat of any kind may be fitted in the front passenger seat.

    I asked would they disable the passenger airbag system if I were to sign a disclaimer, in the same way as VW dealers are happy to. The answer was no, they would not, no exceptions.

    The outcome was the dealer gave two choices:
    1. Don't use the car to carry infants.
    2. If the ability to carry infants in the front is a requirement, get a replacement vehicle with the appropriate features/options installed from the factory.

    In the case of an Astra or similar, if there is no system to disable the front airbag on the car from the factory (either by a keyswitch as found on the newest gen Astra or transponder system) then the front seat must not be used for infants - only the rear seat will be available for this purpose. Dealers will not intervene in any way to alter the vehicle to make it suitable.

    I was also warned it may be illegal to modify the safety systems on the vehicle as it could potentially invalidate the insurance.
