I assume you want to disable the sensor because you don't use your seatbelt? Drive with your seatbelt fastened. That should do the trick. Besides, it will save you life in an accident. And I believe that your airbag may not deploy if the seatbelt is not fastened. They are designed to work together to save your life. You *could* in theory bypass the switch, but I won't say how.

I appreciate your concern, but actually I do drive with my seat belt on. My problem is that when I arrive home and my child is a sleep in the car and I'm in park the sensor goes off repeatedly and wakes her up. I can't take my seat belt off while the car is running. Other cars I have had the alarm will go off when you take the vehicle out of park. This one goes off non-stop as long as the car is running.Thanks
The hall sensor can be found on top of a Volkswagen Passat engine. The sensor is placed under the valve cover next to the timing belt.
behind the oil filter
Under the driver seat.

Oxygen Sensor may be bad.
It's on the rear coolant flange way in the back by the firewall.
inside air filter housing
The OEM part number for a mass air flow sensor on a 2001 Volkswagen Passat is located on the part themselves. The number for this part is 0280218063.
On the lower radiator hose. It has a connector and a black plastic clip.
if your car is driven by a cambelt not a chain then the sensor is located on the bottom pulley, when you pull this pulley out it will be there, its a bi black thick wire.
It's located near the oil filter and on oil cooler/filter plate.
By replacing the front pads . they will reset automatically when the sensor sees the pads are ok.
Before replacing the mass air flow sensor (or MAF) on a 1998 Volkswagen Passat be sure to locate all of the air box bolts. The MAF is located inside the box. Once the box is open the MAF can be reached and replaced.
That car has a knock sensor, so you won't destroy it. It will, however, run terrible because the timing's so retarded by the knock sensor.
Put on your seatbelt.
how i found the change the oxygen sensor in 2002 vw passat
Put on your seatbelt. Now if the sensor is defective, take it back to the dealer. It is under warranty.
built into maf sensor.
If you have a 1999 Passat V6, the coolant temperature sensor is located in the lower radiator hose.
The knock sensor on a Passat is located on the side of the engine. It is just below the number two cylinder spark plug.
The sensor in the reservoir is probably bad. It is located in the bottom of the reservoir and fairly easy to change.
Alright I've found the solution, the seatbelt connection has 2 wires leading to it, cut both wires and splice together, problem solved :D
