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

I just fitted leather interior from a wrecked 06 into my 05 durango. I exchanged the sensors as we found out that the wrecked sensors need to be recalibrated. Now when I have a passenger the air bag light goes out and stays out, As soon as the passenger gets out, the light comes on, when they get back on the seat the light goes off. Help!

I have a 2006 durango. The airbag light goes off and on as a sensor of weight. Depending on how much weight you have in the seat. So if someone that is a light weight is in front, the airbag wont go off, as a saftey precaution for children and babies. Thats what I was told.

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

Whats the best way to clean the leather interior? The cars been sitting for almost 2 years and needs help.

You can either use saddle soap and scrub with a sponge or you can buy one of the ultra concentrate cleaners on the market. I use something called Advanage from and with that I put it on with a cloth and gentlely rub.

If the leather is dried out or cracked you should also buy a leather preservative to put on after you clean. So far, I haven't found one that is any better the the next so won't recommend one.

I have a 2010 Honda accord v6 leather beige interior. It gets dirty, so if I buy seat covers for my car, can I will feel my seat warmer through my seat covers?

you can fit covers BUT any dust that gets between the cloth and the leather will act like a scourer and take the shine/laquer off,making it even harder to clean in the future.use "simple"(unperfumed)soap to clean the leather,and wipe with a damp cloth after.

Heated seat not working

The heater element for the seat is broken or damaged....It will need to be replaced....The blinking light lets you know there is a problem and does not let power flow to the element. This is for safety reasons to prevent short out or even fire.

Seats (grey/leather) -1995 900 Turbo SE

Neoprene two tone seat covers are available at State of Nine but are pricey. You can spend about $250 and perform a DIY leather repair and dye job to the entire interior. Here is what I did, using leather cream crack filler and auto leather dye. It lasts about three years and then requires touching up.
