I have 1998 2.5 TJ, RHD standard spec. I'd like to deactivate the passenger airbag so that my boy can sit in his child seat in the front with me. I note there are two fuses on the fuseboard marked as airbag with red line printed around them on the board. I don't want to deactivate the driver airbag.

Is is as straightforward as it looks, ie remove the left fuse to deactivate the left airbag?

Thanks

Rudd

No, it's not that straight forward. Here is the US, there was a deactivation switch used on the late 90s Wranglers and may have extended into the early 2000s. I know by 2003 it was definitely removed except on 4-cyl models without a rear seat from the factory. Check with your local dealer to see if they can order the kit and isntall it. I'll warn you kow, chances are they won't want to disable it and will tell you to put the kid in the back where he belongs.

Thanks for the tips. In all other situations I'd agree about being safer in the back (ie My Cherokee) but high seat + canvas only to the side can't be as good as low front seat and metal door to the side.

From a safety standpoint, the child seat belongs in the back - they're not designed to go up front and will be fine as long as you have it secured properly (i.e. less than one inch of movement along the seat belt path from side to side.)
