    Basically how do you do it?

    I dont have a key switch in the glove box or at the left of the radio (That I can see!) however if its hidden I do have an aftermarket radio that came in the car so I suppose it may be behind the facia.

    Or do some cars not turn off?


    Thanks

    LOL.

    I need to turn mine of my child and ive looked through all the manual and I cant find anywhere to turn it off.

    Maybe there is no way to turn it off! Would be alittle strange if that was the case but you never know.

    The key afaik is an optional extra. If its missing then i presume your car simply wasnt specified with it when new.

    I think it should be possible to fit the key, and recode the airbag controller to pay attention to it. Have a google and see if you can find anything.
