I bought the passemger airbag deactivation switch from Ford for my 2008 Ford Galaxy which I have fitted. If I turn the switch off, the airbag light remains on when I run the car which I would expect. However if I turn it on, the light goes out, but comes back on after about 5 seconds and remains on.

There was an obvious connector to plug into the switch so I'm not sure what I could have done wrong.

Does something need to be reset / reprogrammed now I've fitted the switch?

Honestly I would not mess about where airbags are concerned - if it went off with a rear facing child seat you could be attending your kids funeral - get it to a ford dealer I would imagine it is going to need a software change aswell as the switch.

Kids are better in the back though IMHO
