Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. There really is no 'fuse' specific to the Air Bag system on a 2005 Tundra. The air bag system is fused off of the fuise that powers the ignition. Please describe the problem you are having. Thanks

disconnecting passinger air bag as it is faulty and dealer won't be able to replace for up to 2 years and I can't have anyone in the passinger seat
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

I do not understand why the dealer cannot replace it for 2 years...Please clarify..

Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

If the air bag light is ON, and the diagnosis has revealed that the passenger air bag is faulty, it will NOT deploy in the event of a collision.

Thats what the local dealer told me and so did the Toyota corp. office.
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

If you want to defeat the entire air-bag system, all you have to do is disconnect the main wire at the center air bag sensor under the console. (the metal box withthe bright yellow wires).

Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

That makes no sense. If someone was injured in a collision because the air bag did not deply, and you have evidence that the dealer stated that they cannot replace it for 2 years they can be found guilty of contributory negligence.

Thank you for your help
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

You are very welcome. This recall has been out for quite some time. If the dealer is not replacing your faulty module, and they cannot replace it in a short time, you should tell them to give you this in writing. This way, if something happens, and a passenger gets injured, you can sue the daylights out of the dealership. This recall should have been completed by now, and certainly NOT 2 years form now. If they are stringing you out, call the NHTSA national hotline and file a complaint.
