You shouldn't have to disconnect the airbags themselves to disable them. Just pull the SRS fuse(s)?

Really? Didnt know that. Thx for the info. So just to be clear, what u're saying is that grabbing the INTACT bags & RCM from the working grey colored 96 dash & installing them in the tan colored donor 99 dash doesnt work?

probably not. they will physically fit, but i'm pretty sure the plugs changed over the years. air bag stuff is something not to mess lightly with. one wrong source of power and they pop again.
