Unless your vehicle has a selectable feature to disable the passengers side air bag, there is no way to disable �Just� that air bag without danger to the whole restraint system.
You can disable the whole of the airbag system by simply removing the fuse NOTE: that BOTH air bags will not function if you do this.
You can follow the manufacturers instructions for replacing the air bag, but do not remove it, leave it in place (I will not give those instructions as they are dangerous). CAUTION: Doing this is a GREAT RISK to Life, Health, and Safety of anyone in the van. This air bag, if disconnected could be �discharged� (it could go off) from static charges, or lightning strikes, or just from heat changes.
(Suggested) Do not mess with it! If you have a child then place them in the back seats.
Air Bag Information: Air Bags are charged explosives! You heard me right, there are small explosive charges that cause them to inflate. During an accident these forces are miniscule when compared to the effect of two (or more) large metal objects colliding: When not in an accident it is like a balloon tied to a 12 gauge shotgun shell, just a few feet from your face. Now while that thought may be scary, the thought of your face hitting the dash, or steering wheel, with 2 tons of force is not only more scary, it is more deadly. Air Bags when properly installed have almost NO risk of going off on their own, the safety system is very good. When you leave the leads to that explosive dangling loose, or even grounded, you are asking for lots of trouble.
(Suggested 2) If you remove the fuse and disable the air bag system, you need to install a 5 point racing harness, and new solid seats (to hold it), to keep your face from making a bad impression on your dash. (The cost behind this would be very high).
NOTE: I have worked in the autobody industry a long time (18 years), and yes air bags scare me; but standing in front of a car moving at 30 (or more) miles per hour scares me more � and unless your body is made solid with the car your in, you are no different than any other loose object in the car.
I have a 3 year old who was always turning on the back reading lights. Then the next morning I would come out to a dead battery. I just removed the bulbs for a short term fix and will replace them when she gets older.
Check the air filter.
Bad switch or motor on other window Check to see if you are getting power to it - if so bad motor - if not maybe bad switch or open in wiring circuit
Why in the hell would you want to? You will burn your transmission up if you do, for sure.
I had same problem -- fuel pump went out.
I'm not sure why you would want to disable this.. There is an on and off switch in the trunk on the passenger side. In the off position the air compressor will not operate.
vacuum leak, bad idle control sensor
It would be incorrect to and improper to answer a question that could aid a car thief.
I found alot of Astro part at my local junk yard. most in very good shape. The only thing would be getting the correct color.
Perhaps a bad speaker.
It would be improper to answer a question that could aid a car thief, Sorry
The ecm would be in the passenger side kick panel.
Anything before 1987.
i have a 95 Chevy astro van.what would cause the all wheel drive to work sometimes but not all the time?
Check to see if the fuse is blown. Michelle Ress USA
That would probably cause it to run lean.
Yes it would be easer to get at it with the dog house removed.
Bank 1 would be the drivers side of the engine on your Chevrolet 4.3 liter
might be the thermostat stuck shut The radiator and cooling system could be low on coolant
Mine did this, replacement of distributor solved the problem. Go figure?!?
try the cigarette lighter fuse there are linked together for some reason
I think it's called an EPC valve. It regulates exhaust & fuel pressures. You would need a new one.
In general Chevy brand vans are not the best for converting to passenger vans. However, the Chevy Express Passenger Van LS1500, LS2500, and LS3500 are all good vans for converting to handicapped models.
I can't turn the yellow brake or parking lights on my 1998 Chevy blazer off and it's draining my battery.Could you please tell me which fuse or switch I'd use to disable the front yellow lights? This is happening even with the car off.
