    the seat that i replaced had two connections running from it to the floor. the one i replaced it with only had one connection from the seat. the one that is not there looks like it has a plastic tube running into a pad in the seat itself. maybe it a pressure sensitive seat?

If you still had your old seat you could have used all the brackets off that one and just used the new seat all the brackets will unbolt from the seat..

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 airbag warning light isn't coming on and it wont pass the nct.


It is a common Peugeot problem.
There is a connection under the drivers seat where the Seat belt pre-tensioner is linked in.
This connection needs re-doing.
You might get away with cleaning and reconnecting it.
If it is under warranty then Pug will take care of it!
If you have a passenger airbag there will be a similar connection under the passenger seat.

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.

Replacing severe


cebd8d08-0b93-4be4-a8ba-b0eb7c57df3a.jpgCheck connections under passenger seat.
The SRSCM sets DTC B1322 if
there is any fault in Weight Classification System.



In contrast to the initial
one-stage airbag systems, newer restraint systems involve complex logic to
select, or alternatively suppress, various levels of safety system deployment.


Inherent to an advanced
Restraint System is the ability to discern information regarding passenger
occupancy.


It is intended that these
inputs be provided through the weight measuring OC system.


The object of such safety
system is to reduce the risk and level of injuries by automatically adapting the
airbag(s) and seat belt pretensioner to the driving status of the vehicle, its
occupants, and the crash severity.


The current OC system covered
in this specification continually senses and classifies the front passenger side
seat.


OCS is utilizing a robust
weight measuring technology. Thus, if any of the following conditions occur,
'command zero' and 'accuracy check' should be performed


The weight classification ECU
or any of the sensors is replaced.


The vehicle is brought to the
repair shop due to an accident or a crash even though the severity seems to be
minor.


The passenger airbag ON
indicator is off (not illuminated) when the passenger seat is not
occupied.


The passenger airbag ON
indicator is delayed more than 10 seconds before turning off when an adult
passenger is seated in the right front seat.


The passenger seat is removed
from the vehicle and re-assembled.


Any accessories (side table,
seatback table and seat cover, etc) are replaced or installed.

Airbag light reset sx4


There is a manufacturer's recall on this if it's caused by a failure in the front passenger weight detection system.

The system has a minimum weight required in the front passenger seat for the airbag to deploy in an accident (if no one is in the front passenger seat during an accident, the airbag does NOT deploy). If the system fails and the car cannot determine if someone is in the front passenger seat, the light illuminates and in an accident the passenger airbag WILL deploy, even if there's no one in that seat.

The purpose of the system is to prevent airbag deployment for a lightweight child in the front seat. The fix is to replace the seat weight sensor mat...free if it's the recall item.

If the airbag light is on something in the system is broken. Go to AutoZone or similar and have them scan the airbag system for codes. My guess would be a faulty seat sensor or a faulty seat belt sensor

Air bag light started coming on /dash constantly


the likely fault is the cables running to the seatbelt pre-tensioners under the drivers or passengers seat in the front of the car.

This may be simply the plug and socket have become seperated from sliding the seat back to clean, a common fault, or the airbag "clockspring" connection unit in the steering wheel has a broken ribbon cable inside the column housing.

To see if its the airbag clockspring, buy a 4 ohm resistor from maplin or radio shack, disconnect the battery on the car, unplug the airbag in the steering wheel and connect the resistor across the 2 contacts in place of the airbag, reconnect the battery, if the light goes out the clockspring is the fault, if not its the SRS system wiring under the seats.

My SRS light comes on and off. I don't know what


It has to do with your airbags. Supplemental Restraint System. This light can be caused by a lot of things including any of the following:
  • Letting battery drain too low
  • Bad Sensor
  • Blown fuse
  • Unplugging the car’s battery
  • Removing the gauge cluster/installing aftermarket gauges
  • G-Force sensors that are under each of the front fenders ($250.00 each)
  • Bad clockspring (located inside your steering wheel)
  • Bad ECU
  • Bad reverse light switch on transmission
  • Car was in an accident
  • Airbag defective/unplugged

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.
