You will need to go to a dealer, With the proper documentation that states your medical condition requires its deactivation. Without proper documentation, it is against federal law to disable the air bag system.

They will then have to install a special kit, that includes a deactivation switch, usually mounted in the glove box.

In addition, Does the kit include a label/decal stating the passenger airbag has been deactivated? Which needs to be adhere to the dashboard by the dealer. In case the OP sells the vehicle in the future, in which the new owner would be aware the airbag device is deactivated.

One issue is even with the paper work dealers are not required by law to do it. They can and have declined due to liability concerns.

Thought TN covered this in a tread, suggest a search.
