Child prodigy 😒


Recommended Posts

Greetings, everyone. I have a 2007 Mercedes C220 Cdi Elegance Se and I am looking for a way to safely place my daughter in the front seat with me, despite having a car seat, since I have discovered that the airbag on the passenger side cannot be deactivated. I am inquiring if the 3 ohm resistor method is effective for the airbag plug or whether a specific kind is required. Furthermore, I would want to confirm whether I do own the Babysmart item as well. I am unable to deactivate the airbag. Despite searching extensively, I have been unable to locate the MB car seats, which are located far away. In my opinion, using a resistor seems like a safer alternative. What is the official name of this technology from Mercedes? Is it really BabySmart? πŸ€”πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

Is this a later model W203 or an earlier model W204?

To deactivate the front passenger airbag, the vehicle must be equipped with the optional Front Passenger Child Seat Recognition System, as indicated in the Datacard. Additionally, the child seat must be an approved type with a built-in transponder that can automatically turn off the front passenger airbag.

The Front Passenger Seat Occupancy Sensor is a standard feature on all automobiles and should not be mistaken for another option. The sensor prevents the front passenger airbag from deploying until a passenger is seated in the front seat, reducing costs in case of a crash. I believe that the total weight of the kid plus the child seat will likely trigger the front airbag in the event of a crash, which is undesirable.

It is recommended that the youngster be a minimum of 1.5m tall to sit in the front seat without a booster. The youngster may sit in the front with a booster seat if they are between 1.35m and 1.5m tall.

There is no need to deactivate the front passenger airbag in either situation; just adjust the seat to its furthest position.

Everything is now completed and installed. I devised a solution by creating a small wiring harness and other components, including soldering. I can now safely turn the device on and off using a switch I installed in the glove box. I am pleased with the outcome and can now take her out again as a passenger. She is too big for the back seats, but at least she is properly secured in a booster seat. Dealing with the complexities of a Mercedes is nothing new, but I managed to overcome the challenges in the end. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
