New Porsche models offer standard front airbags for both passengers as well as drivers. Airbags protect those riding in Porsche vehicles from collision-related injuries and fatalities. For those drivers transporting children, however, it is imperative to disable the passenger front airbag, as an operational passenger front airbag can have harmful consequences if projected onto a child passenger. In these cases, it is safer for the child if you disable the airbag.

Verify that you have a 2005 911 or Boxster model. These vehicle models offer dealer manufactured key switches to turn on and off the front airbag systems. For all other Porsche models, you will need to visit a dealer in order to disengage your front airbag system.
Locate the installed key switch to turn off the airbag. Typically, it is a square button to the right of the hazard lights. Press the button to turn off your passenger front airbag system.
Turn the vehicle on. Check the driver's console to see that the "Passenger Airbag Off" light is on. This will verify that you have successfully disabled the front airbag system.
