Passenger airbag

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been asked before 

can you deactivate the passenger airbag in a 16 plate titanium sport?

The US version of the car turns the airbag off automatically unless there is at least 85 pounds of "something" in the passenger seat.  

Between 20 and 84 pounds, it will also illuminate a light in front of the gearshift that says "Passenger airbag off"

 

Not sure if the European Kuga is the same way, but I would expect similar behavior - you can test it by putting something fairly heavy in the passenger seat (under 85 pounds) and see if the Passenger airbag off light illuminates or not, be sure the engine is running.  It takes about 60 seconds for the car to decide what to do with the airbag, so wait 2-3 minutes after you put the bag there.
