Also, can you drive without airbag module?

Without airbags deploying, a driver and any passengers can face serious injury or even death.
Besides, how much does it cost to replace an airbag module?
On average, expect around $1,000 to $1,500 per airbag that needs to be replaced. That doesn't take into consideration other parts that need to be changed; just the airbags themselves. Airbag module replacement will run another $600 and up.
Where is the airbag control module located?
The location of the airbag module differs from vehicle to vehicle depending on the make and model of it. In some vehicles, it is located in the center console, kick panel, under the radio, or behind the steering wheel. Generally, though, it can be found underneath the driver's seat or front passenger's seat.
