I would have the sensor in the passenger seat checked but if you have that seat leaning back more than the first of second position, a very unsafe way to sit in a vehicle, then the sensor is ok it is the way the body weight is distributed in the seat. When the passenger is laying back it sets the weight off center and essentially removes any possible safety the Airbag could provide and actually turns the airbag into a weapon during an accident, not to mention the seat belt will not work correctly and will most likely kill instead of save the life since they are going to slip right under it.

PASS.SEAT SENSOR AIR BAG LIGHT ON


It is illegal to bypass the airbag circuit. Check for broken wire under or beside passanger seat. these have a tendancy to brake cause the seat gets moved back & forth especially if the wireing has been routed incorrectly. air bag wireing will be identified by yellow plugs & normally yellow condute as well.

Right airbag disabled when someone sits in seat and alarm sounds


There is a sensor in the seat that is supposed to disable the air bag if a child is sitting in the seat. The weight of an adult should activate the air bag. There is something wrong with the sensor. DO NOT LET A CHILD SIT IN THE SEAT UNTIL IT IS FIXED. If the air bag deploys with a child in the seat, it could be fatal.

When someone sits in the passenger seat the air bag light comes on


Hi Edward your problem is probably the occupancy detector which is located in the passanger side front seat base.Its function is to detect wheather or not there is a passanger in the car.It will not allow the passanger air bag to deploy in the event of an accident if there is no passanger present.Unfortunately it cannot be repaired and will have to be replaced to do this remove the seat abd remove the seat cover and padding,[the detector is located in the seat base.
I would recommend that the air bag system is scanned to find out the fault before you buy a new detector.

2000 ford taurus- airbag code 36: What does it mean, and what does it cost to repair?


It means you have high resistance in the drivers or passengers side air bags... Heres the deal. check if the vehicle has side airbags usually noted on the side of the seats with the word air bag.. if there are no side air bags in the car than someone has put the wrong module in the vehicle. If it has side air bags go under the seats and check all electrical connectors to see if wires are broken or anything is unplugged. sometimes they unplug themselves from moving the seats or putting things under the seats.

Airbag light goes off when passanger seat in use, & on when not


even with exchanging the sensor the calibration could be off. without pulling codes from the airbag system it would be hard to guess for sure but id say you need to have the dealership do a recalibration on the seat

Whoever Told you that is an Idiot! There is a Relay for the Air Bag System Under the Hood in the Fuse Relay box. Sometimes the Dealer must reset But, Not usually.

Passanger Side air bag sensor


I had a simular problem with my Vue. Found the sensor in the seat for the airbag was faulty. This sensor is also part of the seat heater. Replaced the part and found that when this part is replaced, an adaptor is needed in addition to the sensor/heater. The cost of this repair was around $1500. After all was replaced, we reset all the codes and all was well. Hope this helps.
