I do hope that is the case.PawnSacrifice wrote:To be fair, you've got it the wrong way round mate, but yeah, that would be very poor form. It will always fire the airbags - the risk is having an accident with only the driver in the car and the airbags doplying for a passenger that isn't there - damaging the dash and the passenger door.gookah wrote:All working perfectly,........ unless, as a passenger, your airbag won't deploy if the worst happens.
But surely an occupancy sensor bypass will either signal that:
The passenger seat is never occupied, even with someone there... So the passenger airbag will never deploy, and there is no seat belt warning light/chime
The passenger seat is always occupied, even with no one there....So the passenger airbag is always deployed, and the seat belt warning light/chime will always be on unless the seat belt is plugged in.
If yours is the second one, then you will constantly have to have the seatbelt fastened on an empty seat is that the case?...
Also If it did deploy with no passenger present, and the assessor found a bypass fitted, then the insurance may not pay out at all..if you hadn't notified them.
