The seat will fit - the mot will need to be gotten from a dealer.

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.

Air Bag Light came on this morning

If the AIRBAG light is coming on while you are driving it means that your Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) or "Aibag Module" has a malfunction and that the restraint system WILL NOT WORK in the event of an accident. I use the words "Supplemental Restraint System" and not "Airbag" because most people do not realize that the seatbelt pre-tensioners, the drivers, passenger, and side airbags (if equipped) are all included in this. I don't mean to be over-dramatic, but that light being on could quite literally make the difference between life and death in the event of an accident.

A very common cause of this is a failure of the Contact Assembly (Also Known As "ClockspringAssembly") in the steering column just under the steering wheel.
There are at lest 2 Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) published by Ford Motor Company that may apply to your situation:

TSB 02-21-7 Which discusses known wiring problems under the driver's seat and in the area of the pre-tensioner assemblies.

TSB 04-25-15 Which covers the possibility of a faulty forward crash sensor, side crash sensor, faulty wiring to the crash sensors or a defective Restraint Control Module. (RCM)

You need to have your restraint system diagnosed as soon as possible - even if the light goes out again. There will be a fault code that a qualified technician can use to determine what is causing the fault.

2004 Avalanche "Service Air Bag

First, please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

I seriously doubt that your problem is being caused by a fuse. Your Passive Restraint System has a problem. This could be caused by a driver's airbag, a passenger airbag, a seat belt pre-tensioner, a contact assembly in the steering column, or any of the crash sensors. To find out what the problem is, you must scan your Passive Restraint (or Airbag) module to retrieve fault codes. The only thing I can tell you for sure without properly diagnosing your vehicle is that your airbag system will not function in the event of a crash. The system is designed to disable itself any time the warning light is illuminated. This is to prevent accidental deployment of the airbags due to a malfunction in the system.

I hit a ditch and both my airbags deployed and now i cant move my seat belts

inside your seatbelts there are small explosives known as pre-tensioners, when you crash these pre tensioners go off and pull you back into the seat as part of the SRS( supplemented restraint system) which means that aswel as new airbags you also need new seatbelts for your car.

I totalled my 1999 chevy s-10 and the airbag in the steering wheel didnt go off and i was wondering how to look and see if it was disabled

Do you want to know if the airbag was disabled or if the sensors were disabled? But basically, if the impact was from the side or rear, the airbag won't deploy. If the impact was from the front and went over the front bumper, again, the airbag wouldn't deploy.

Passenger seat belt locked and Air bag light on

Sounds like you probably have blown the seat belt pre-tension-er. Any competent repair shop should have the tools able to access the SRS computer and diagnose the problem. Your SRS system is stand alone from other systems in your vehicle and it performs a self test every time the key is cycled to the ON position. If all faults are removed the air bag light should go out on its own, but in some cases the diagnostic module will need replaced along with any damaged peripheral component of the system.
