Mazda 6 airbag passenger seat occupancy sensor

I have a Mazda 6 1.8 sportswagon (estate). The airbag warning ight came on. Took it in to a Mazda service agent, diagnostics showed fault as historic, so, it was cleared from the memory. A few days later it came back on. I took it back in, and the problem lies with the airbag passenger seat occupancy sensor. This part will cost me 750 Euro, and then another 250 or so to fit. I am based in Dublin (Ireland). Does this sound right. Are there any reasonable cheaper solutions.

Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

Disable airbag airbagmodulhave a 2006 lincoln towncar,passenger seat has been removed,airbag light now stays on,how do i bypass the seat occupancy sensor


Its a weight sensitive sensor, so you would probably have to come up with some sort of resistor. I doubt you can bypass it.

How do you turn off the passenger side airbag of a 2005 Sierra??


if there isn't a key switch in the dash, then the airbag has a sensor in the passenger seat which measures the weight of the occupant in that seat and if occupant is to light in weight the airbag will be shut off automatically. otherwise if occupant is heavier than 110 lbs the airbag should then be on.

Cant find keyhole or switch to turn my airbags off in my mazda 6


The airbag system in this car is second generation smart airbags, there is no switch, if the weight in the passenger seat is not at least 50 pounds (there is a sensor in the seat cushion) the airbag is switched off to the paassenger seat, but small children should always be in a approved child seat in the back seat anyway.
