Passenger Air Bag Warning light stays son

The passenger air bag warning light stays on, even when a passenger is in the seat. Is the air bag charged or is the whole system inoperative?

    The owner's manual says that this light on indicates the airbag is not charged and will not operate in an accident.

    So i intend to let a dealer fix it. I don't need to be fooling around with it and cause the airbag to deploy.

    Again, thanks.

Is this van new for you ? is it a status light letting you know that the airbag is loaded and ready for anypassenger that you have in your van ? do you have a key that you can turn it off in most vans there is an option to turn air bag on or off depending on size or opinion of passenger . im thinking that if its a status light its okay to be on letting you know its ready for opperation . take a look at your owners manual airbag section . and if it does turn out to be a warning malfunction indicator please dont waste time take it to your local dealer and have it checked out .hope this information helps good luck

Air bag light will not go out

Hello Kathy,

Your Air Bag Light staying on is a warning that the system needs to be checked.

Some vehicles have a key actuated switch that controls passenger bag deployment, which is illuminated when active but instrument panel displays are a warning to the driver that something is wrong..

Check your owners manual for the complete details on the Air Bag System.

Passenger air bag light on

Could be just a problem with the wiring. Once had a client complain that every time he sat on passenger seat of his car the airbag warning light came on. Turned out it was one of the wires in that seat that was too short, and because he was big and always put the seat all the way back the wiring got stretched. But the best thing to do is connect a diagnostic machine to the car.

The sensors which fit below the passenger seat are missing. I want to know the name of these sensors.

seat belt sensor or air bag sensor, some cars measure weight in the seat on the passenger side and if it is below a certain amount it disables the passenger air bag, a safety for little kids, other sensor for seat belts, if there is any weight and no seat belt is fastened it will turn the seat belt warning light on in the dash.

I have a 2002 Jaguar X-Type 3.0.. The air bag icon warning light keeps coming on or flashes. Sometimes it comes on a stays on. Other times it goes off when I restart the engine and sometimes it stays on...

I had this. The issue was resolved by the Jaguar Main Dealer by recalibrating the passenger seat weight sensor. The system is designed so that the passenger air-bag is disabled within a certain weight band detected on the seat (to protect babies in carry-chairs).

Hope this helps.

Air bag sensor keeps flashing

If a concern is detected, the air bag control module will communicate by flashing the warning indicator. A diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is logged by the air bag control module in a nonvolatile memory. For additional information, refer to Diagnosis and Testing in this section.

2006 reo passenger air bag light says its off. how do i turn it on?

The passenger air bag will only come on if there is weight in the seat. The manual says 40 lbs, but it is more than that. When my 60 son sits in the front, the air bag stays off. This is a safety mechanism. An air bag can kill a small child, so it automatically turns itself off if there is little or no weight in the seat. Also saves having to have the air bag repacked if you have a wreck with no one in the front passenger seat--a costly repair.
