    SRS system wiring is usually in an orange sleeve. You could manually fire each one by cutting the wires to the bags and applying power to them. I don't know if it this would work, but I suppose you could whack one of the sensors with a hammer and see if it fires the system?

    You're better off reading the ERG for the vehicle in question and seeing how to properly disable the system.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

      That is the way I remember Seeing done, a Bendix King Clam shell and a pair of jumper wires, and Boom she was gone. I Am not sure on the color combination but Orange gives me a start.

        There should be yellow connectors at the base of the column and under the glove box, sometimes at the side panels of the dash. You can cut the wires, but cut them different lengths. Just be careful, static electicity can set them off.

          That would be a YELLOW sleeve. DON'T mess with anything in a ORANGE sleeve. T.C.

            Unplug the connector(two wire)on the yellow sleeve, and extend the wires about 20'(lamp cord works good). A nine volt battery will Fire them.Similar connector under the passenger side. OR leave a good battery in the car,ign on and whack the front sensor. If it isn't a smart sensor it MAY work. T.C.

              Doh. Yea that's what I meant. Orange to the best of my knowledge would/could be the high voltage from the batteries on a hybrid or EV.

                  Why does Plan-A in the fire service always involve hitting something with a hammer?
