2010 commander disable passenger airbag

I have one of those strange life scenarios coming up which will require me to put a child seat in the front passenger seat for a day. Is there any way to disable the passenger side airbag?

Thanks

It will disable automatically when the seat senses a certain weight range. The seat knows its lighter than an adult

With a car seat I'd think it would turn off. I've put my backup with clothes inside on the seat before and it shuts off

2010 JKU - Stock for now
2005 WK - 6" lift, 35" BFG's, a lot more (SOLD)

Not on a 2010, EVIC buttons are on the steering wheel.

Light should be somewhere close to the same spot as older models. They are in a similar place on most vehicles. Thinks it's a industry standard

No, there is no light or indication on a 2010. They redesigned the dash in 09.

It does not have an Occupant Classification System (OCS).
