How do you disarm airbag on 1996 half-ton Chevy truck?

You must first disconnect the ground on the battery. Wait up to at least 20 seconds for all the electricity to leave the system before removing the airbag(it's a good idea to wait a full minute). If you do not wait, you run the risk of having the airbag going off accidentily. At this point, you can remove the air bag without worry of it going off.
