Default Passenger Airbag

I was wondering if there is a way to turn off the passenger side airbag in my 2013 Dodge Ram? I have a niece who doesn't meet the weight requirement to sit in the front without turning the airbag off. Any ideas would be great!

It should automatically be disabled if the weight isn't met. My wife while sitting in the front seat has done it a few times while moving around and leaning over to deal with the kids in the back, I get a message in the evic saying that the passenger side air bag or wherever is off. Yeah, I actually think it goes so far as to disable the front one, or the side depending on what it's sensing. Airbags are dangerous if you aren't seated properly. Double check your manual, but this has been true on all of my recent vehicles.

I have an 03 3500 with the Tikata air bag issue on the passenger side. Been trying to get a replacement for over a year now. Dealers say none in stock, but not possible to disable. BS. Anyone know how to disable. Rather be without than have the shrapnel hit my wife.
