I have a 10 year old son and would like to let him ride in the front seat of my new truck once it arrives. Can the passenger side airbag be turned off easily?

You have good questions. Never saw or read of a way to do that. Hope someone has a definitive answer.

Only the regular cabs have a disable switch.

The newer trucks may have in the seat sensors that can determine if a car seat is installed or a light little person is in the seat. My wife's 2005 Magnum RT has that feature. (and it will set off the passenger side airbag light if a purse is in the seat......)

Doubt there is any way to do it in Crew or Quad cab trucks, single cabs have an exemption because there's no alternative for car seats so there has to be an over-ride function.

Most new vehicles have a sensor. when weight of passenger is to light for airbag to be deployed it turns itself off.

Thanks for the feedback fellas, I googled the air bag/age requirements and most states recommend kids ride in the back until age 13. I may take him on a short ride in the front though.
