You need either the dealer scantool or a third party SRS scantool capable of OCS (occupant classification system) calibration.

Neither is cost effective to buy for personal use, as the prices are in the thousands for either.

OCS calibration is usually a half hour labor charge at most, typically in the $45 range at most shops.

My best bet is to take the car to the nearest toyota dealer for better and guaranteed service. Your seatbelt pretensioner may not work properly or the surrounding area may be damaged or scratched. Please take it to the nearest toyota dealer for safety.

The passenger side airbag is off on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe... how do I turn it back on ?


There is no "switch" the passenger airbag (referred to as a smart airbag system) is controlled by a weight sensing sensor in the seat cushion, the airbag is disabled anytime that something less than about 50 pounds is placed on the seat cushion. If you put items on the seat under that weight like a bag of groceries for instance it can confuse the system and turn off the passenger airbag. What you need to do now is contact your local dealer and make an appt. to have the system scanned to see what the problem is that is keeping the passenger side airbag disabled. Good Luck.

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.

My air bag light is flashing 3times then 7 times what is wong?


The light flashout code 37 means you have a problem with the passenger's side airbag. There are 4 different trouble codes that all have the 37 light flashout code. If you took it to your dealer they would scan it for codes and could narrow it down to which of the 4 codes you have. I have found with these the most common thing is for someone to have kicked the wiring connector under the passenger's seat. Take a look there for bad connections.

Airbagligth stays on


There is a problen with the airbag system. I could be that the front passenger seat needs to be recalibrated.This should be checked at your dealer.
If it just the seat that needs to be recalibrated it wont take long.

Airbag alarm


This should be for the passenger side airbag. If an adult is sitting in the passenger side seat and there is a light that says airbag off then you have a problem either with the passenger side airbag or with the passenger side seat detector. Start up the car and sit in the passenger seat, buckle the seat belt and make sure the light now says airbag on. If this does not happen take car to dealer. Dealers have correct computers to enter the airbag modules to read and diagnose the fault code.

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
