'05 Tacoma Double Cab 4x2 airbag switch

02-01-2006, 02:38 PM
I have an '05 double cab. Beside the stereo, on the right is a black cover, which when removed has a wiring harness. I looked up the area online at toyota and it says that some models have an on/off switch for the passenger airbag here. I assume my wiring harness is for this. When I contacted the local toyota dealership here they tell me first, they have never heard of an on/off switch for the '05 models, then they call me back and tell me that Toyota said that feature is only available in the models other than 4 dorr double cab, which is what i have.

Does anyone know anything about this? If I am wired up for it as is what it appears under the cover, I'd like to add this switch to my truck, but the guys who are supposed to know about this seem to be more lost than I am.

the whole point they made trucks have these switches is incase you put a baby seat in the front passenger seat. Unless you have a baby i wouldn't worrie about getting it wired. i know my 2005 tacoma has the switch wired.

Well, the switch is not just for a baby seat but for kids as well. I found out that it is only standard in the regular cab and next cab size, but not for the larger double cab. To buy the switch is a wopping $300+. Anyway, thought you all should know.
