Customer Question
I just bought a...

I just bought a 2017 pacifica. It has supplemental side curtain airbags over the 2nd and 3rd row seat windows. These could be a danger to my dogs, who are the only passengers. Can these curtain airbags be disabled?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this your first time dealing with this issue?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pacifica yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing so far, we only bought it yesterday. But today reading the user guide we found that it may be dangerous for the dogs. We would likely use a mechanic to do it if it can be done.

the only way to disable side air bags is to disable the whole air bag system... which is not suggested... the curtain bags would not likley hurt the dogs ...i would just drive safe and not worry about the uncontrollable... the curtain air bags could harm them if they are at the windows like right on the glass when the bags go off.. but if they are on the seat in a safe position its not issue

The dogs look out the windows.

well they could get hurt in a accident...only way to disable the side bags you would need to disarm the complete system even the driver air bag.. that does not seem safe

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
