What, she doesnt like him or something?!!nessmen said:I have a woman friend that has a 2005 cts, is there a way to turn
off the passenger air bag, her son rides in the front?
Airbags can DEFINATELY be a hazard to small children because of the speed at which they deploy. IMO, I would keep the kid in the back seat (yeah I know he wont be happy, I certainly wouldnt be if I were him) because that will simply provide more protection in the event of a major collision. It's also probably more wise to avoid the airbag risk altogether.nessmen said:Yes she does!!!!!! He's just to small to ride in the front with the air bag on. I think there is some data out that says air bags can actually suffocate children in the front seat.
I know there are a couple of lights there, which one is for the airbag?Mbai2 said:The seat has a weight sensor and if the passenger doesn't weigh enough, the air bag is automatically disabled. The status of the airbag is reflected below the rearview mirror.
Ok, good. For a minute I thought I was crazy for not remembering that light.ctsvett said:the passenger sensor only came along for the 05 model year....
Hence why parents are advised to keep their kids in the back seat. Then again, we sugar-coat everything for kids these days trying to eliminate any chance of them being injured or worse yet, having fun. I recommend you have the kid ride around up on the ledge under the back window!ctsvett said:...No way to turn it off otherwise that I know of... Sorry. Maybe your dealer can be pressured into doing something if you claim a saftey problem...
DDS, thanks for your thoughtful advice on the subject. We'll get back to you after the class-action suit is prepared.DDS rollin a CTS said:I recommend you have the kid ride around up on the ledge under the back window!
