If you remove the bulb a beeper will start warning u that the bulb was taken. Check the passenger airbag switch bulb, sometimes it burns and makes the main one to come ON.
Taking the fuse isnt a good idea. i can bet its not that hard to fix the right way.

check the bulb on the switch, my brothers truck had the same issue.

take the cluster apart and put black electrical tape over the light... but seriously it's pretty messed up to do that to someone buying the truck...

It should blink a couple times, pause, and blink again.

Count the blinks between the pause, that is a code that will point you in a general direction of what is wrong. My '02 F-150 did that, turned out I didn't get the airbag disconnect switched plugged in quite right after I put a new radio in it.

They don't need to be deployed or missing to not be working properly. Just find out what's wrong and fix it. Sell the truck like a legit type of guy, don't intentionally screw someone over.

well the airbags are disabled when a fault is detected and if the person gets into a wreck and finds out you knowingly tampered with the warning device.. im sure they'd enjoy legally raping you.

anyways you'll need to take it to a shop most likely to get the code read.. then diagnose from there. a generic scanner won't do it
