I need to disable the SIR (airbag system) to replace some ignition parts in my 2000 Silverado. How do I do this? (step by step)

This is quite easy! Just pull the AIRBAG fuse located in the fuse block and the system will be diabled.

One word of caution, do not turn the ignition on with the fuse out or you will set a code and the airbag light will come on and stay on until you are able to clear that code.

I have heard some people say that you have to wait a while after you interrupt power to it as there are capacitors that store power for a while.

That is incorrect. Once power is taken away from the system, it is completely dead. It cannot activate at all.
