It doesn't matter who you are, where you are, who you are with or even the conversation...all that matters...is the car you arrived in!

go in to the airbag module and flick through the adaptation channels until you find the disabled ones. Usually passenger airbag, passenger side airbag and passenger head airbag. The channels say something like "passenger airbag deactivation" if its deactivated, there will be a 1 for the value in the lower left box, change it to 0 to re-enable it.

Don't know, it was deactivated by a previous owner.

Brilliant thanks! What are the chances of it going off if I reactivate lol...ther is now NO airbag light after the initial flashing at ignition switch on to signify passenger airbag deactivated
