SOURCE: Air bag off

Your car has second generation airbags and it monitors weight in the passenger seat. If a child sits in the seat the computer looks at the weight and turns off the airbag so not to deploy in a crash. If you put anything in the seat like a purse or briefcase the computer will think its a baby and turn off the airbag.

SOURCE: sliding passenger door will not unlock/ open

I assume you mean a 1991 Previa (that was the first year of the model). It is likely you have broken a small spring inside the door that connects the handle to the latch. The only way to tell is to remove the inner door panel (two screws: one under the door handle and one midway along the upper part of the interior door structure then pull out and up).

1999 BMW M3 - passenger seat goes back and forth on track whenever gears engage

Dear Nancy,
I am going to do some guessing, and I hope I get it right.
I think you mean the passenger seat slides loosely on it's track whenever you shift gears and accelerate, or brake the car.
There is a release handle that is supposed to lock the seat position selector in place, and it must be not working properly.
I have noticed that on many cars, if a piece of trash, or maybe a coin, gets dropped between the seat and the hump in the middle of the floor, it can lock this mechanism.
Have someone take a really good flashlight or light of some kind and examine the track and see if something is blocking the locking mechanism under the seat.
God bless your efforts.

Why is the passenger airbag light on?

Could be a problem with the sensor in the seat. The system thinks someone is sitting in the seat and the seat belt is not fastened.

Passenger seat will not slide forward

there will be bars underneath the seat that are supposed to go across to unlock both sides so that the seat can move forward and back, try having someone pull the lever and see if you can see from behind the bar that moves and figure out what it corresponds to on the opposite side. you should be able to move it by hand, release the lock and set the seat where you want it, as for a permanent fix, most seats are not difficult to remove, typically four bolts, although some take specialty tools like large torx bits, and i would imagine the bar is replaceable

On my extended cab, the front passenger seat will not slide all the way back to the lock position

There's probably something in the way. Get under and behind the seat with a flashlight and check the back end of the rails to see if something is there.

Passenger seat won't lock in place

The adjusting lever for seat position is not locking into place. On the bottom of seat are runners on each side with holes in them that the adjusting lever tabs will lock in and hold seat in place. The seat slides on the runners if those tabs are raised. There is also a connecting wire or rod from the lever to the other side of seat so when lever is pulled up, tabs on both runners are raised for seat to slide. Something is keeping the tabs from locking into the holes on the runners in your car. Maybe the adjusting lever is broken somewhere, or the wire/rod came loose, or the lever is just dry and sticky and needs a shot of WD40 to loosen it up. If you can't see it and fix it with seat in place, then pull the seat back off for the repair. Good luck. Post back if my explanatiopn is not clear or you still need help.

I have a old mercury villager ...i want to replace the middle row seat with last row seat it posible...?

The middle row seat slides forward to the middle position (and several other positions as well.)

Owners manual explains how to slide rear seat foreard.
Remove middle row seats. Lift handle under 3rd row seat cushion on passenger side. Raise seat cushion up until it locks up. Then lift the lever on the passenger side of seat and pull seat forward until it locks in place.

if you don't have owner manual, go to, pro center, tech info, owner manual.

When getting in the passenger side of my 2006 E350, I placed my left knee in the passenger seat to reach over & start car while plugging my laptop in to cigarette adapter in back seat, behind center...

there is a good chance that you will need to take the vehicle in to have the passenger seat resyncronized. The 06 uses a weight sensing system to determine if someone is sitting in the passenger seat. It uses sensors to determine the weight of the occupant by placing your knee in the center it probably thought the sensors weren't reading right since all the weight was in the center of the seat. There is a special set of weights that that dealer has in order to calibrate the sensors again. You might be able to try having someone sit in the passenger seat and then get out a few times and maybe it will see that it's reading correctly now and clear on its own. Laptops running and positioned on the passenger seat have been known to cause problems with this system too at least on the 05's it did.

Why did the service light for my 2009 kia spectra stay on saying passenger airbag off

Probably because no one is sitting in the passenger seat. If it stays on when someone is sitting in the seat then you may have a problem with the sensor in the seat.
