airbag deactivation.

Is there a way to deactivate the passenger airbag without programming the computer?

I do not care if it triggers an airbag light, I just want to make sure the airbag will not deploy. any ideas?

Sure, just remove the air bag module from the dash.

You don't need to remove any module, just unplug the airbag wires (one at the dash and one at the door) w/ the battery connected or disconnected.

If you want to disable it, unplug it; but if you want to be absolutely sure it will not ever deploy, remove it.
