Default Air bag (no key turn off)

ok so heres the deal.. A friend has a 96 ranger, extended cab. 3.0.. Shes about to have a baby and needs to put it in the front seat.. airbags can kill the baby,, yada yada...

the thing is she doesnt have a way key to turn off the passenger airbag like most newer rangers have...

what is the easiest way to turn off the passenger bag.. is there a way involving pressing the gass brake turning ignition on and off ect ect... (like when you turn off the seat belt chime.. or is there a fuse or something to disconnect)

thanks for your help

(yeah i searched)

Ya you just have to go into one of your fuse boxes. One should hve a fuse for the airbag just take out that fuse and you are good to go.

that will disable both and might turn the airbag light on. when that goes on it will come with an annoying chime everytime the truck is started.

u sure 96 had both airbags?

best option is remove the cover and check if it has an airbag. i think that was optional. on that year.
