Re: Air Bag Cutoff Switch (Oldman)

probably it is possible to add the shutdown functionality.<p>From what i saw the last time i had the glove box compartment and surrounding areas off there is a cable comming from the deepness of the dashboard and it connects to the one comming from the airbag. so i think you can add that side panel with the cut off switch <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> is just a matter of connecting cables.<p>Better yet, talk to Parts @ Boston Volvo (John) here and ask him this. He's a nice guy and helped me alot when i needed help, even if you don't want to buy any parts.<p>Cheers

Re: Air Bag Cutoff Switch (cmy4x4)

the cut off switch is necessary if you want to use a baby seat, as the seat creates pressure and "activates" the airbag.<p>All european s40/v50 have the weight sensor and some have the cutoff swith (option).<p>Mine doesn't because i have no use for it.<p>Anyway, the question is valid and if i'm not mistaken it's possible to add that functionality.<p><br>Cheers<br>
