Default 80 series airbag tech...

So I noticed on my dad's truck on the sunvisor is says the air bag is supposed to be serviced when the truck turns 10 years old and then every 2 years thereafter...any of you guys do that? Ain't it 'spensive?

Nope.

I don't know of anyone who has done it, doesn't mean someone hasn't. It was discussed on Mud a while back and came up with the same answer.

I found the airbag sensor under the dash directly in front of the shifter. I decided it wasn't a good idea to mess with it.

We have a big red button in the labs here and under it is a sign stating how important it is not to press the big red button....God I want to push that button...

Now listen cadet, I've got a job for you. See this button? DON'T TOUCH IT! It's the History Eraser Button, you fool.

So what'll happen?

That's just it! We don't know. Maybe something bad...maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?

Oh, how long can trusty Cadet Stimpy hold out? How can he possibly resist the diabolical urge to push the button that could erase his very existence? Will his tortured mind give in to it's uncontrollable desires?

Can he withstand the temptation to push the button, that even now, beckons him ever closer? Will he succumb to the maddening urge to eradicate history, at the mere push of a single button?

The beautiful shiny button.

The jolly candy-like button.

Will he hold out, folks? Can he hold out?

Do 80s have a blue knob? I thought only 60s had them.
