Possible to bpass deployed airbags? 2011 JK
Hi all, I've searched but haven't found an answer to this situation...
Here is the situation... I have a 2011 JK (2door), purchased as a salvage title and it has deployed airbags. While there is an obvious safety concern not having airbags, the vehicle is not a daily driver, and is not driven on the highway, no kids, etc. However, i have moved to a new state, and i have to get it re-registered to be able to use it at all. To pass safety inspection, there can be no fault codes on the computer, and no dash lights can be on.
Is there anyway to trick the computer into bypassing the airbag sensors and clearing the code/light, even if its only temporary?
I would like to replace the parts down the road, searching online I've found drivers side airbags for ~$350, module for ~$100, passenger side bag for $?, and i assume there are sensors up front that would need to be replaced as well.
My other issue is there are no tire pressure sensors installed, but it seems like some aftermarket chips allow you bypass those sensors to clear the low tire pressure fault code as well. Any other bypass suggestions?
Thanks for any insight. Again, disclaimer, I am not trying to band aid the problem to sell the jeep, and i fully intend to properly repair it asap, but funds do not allow me to take it to a dealer. My state can charge up to $1000 for lapsed registration, so trying to avoid that. Mods, feel free to delete this post if I am crossing a line regarding safety.
