If I remove the air bag and do not put it back in, then what. How do I keep the light from lighting up on the gauges and how do I keep power from going to the Hook-ups where the bag use to be?

Looking at one, but right now I am removing the passeger side airbag and doing a fiberglass project to it.

very cool, I was looking into the same thing. If someones got a link to a airbag simulator, it would be much appreciated.

Gator, any chance you could take some photos of the removal process?

thanks for the link, while 29 isnt an arss-rape, I didnt drop 100g's on an engineering degree to not build this stuff myself. Anyways, I did some digging on disarming the airbag light. While I have never actually seen the airbag wire harness, I found some guy that disarmed his ford focus airbag simply by shoving a 2Ohm resistor in it. My other reading mentioned a 3 and 3.5ohm (half amp, 1, or 2 amp resistor). I'll try it out this weekend, I got piles or resistors, one of thems gotta work.

Anyone know how much the airbags and their respective control boxes weigh?

I would guess the passenger side airbag at aroud 20+ lbs. Its definatly a nice chunk of weight that needs to be ditched. I would weigh mine, but I havent been able to find it after I took it out. The airbaig control module weighs almost nothing. Drivers side is about 5-10 lbs maybe. All you need is a resistor "jumpering" the 2 wires connected to the airbag to trick the light. Usually around 2 to 10 ohms if I remember correctly. Its not much at all.
