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

Posted by on

1 Answer

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.

I think this car has an air bag sensor in the passenger seat. the air bag is usually off untill a person sits in the seat which a pressure switch turns on the air bag. Moisture has probably made contact with connection. I would go under seat and disconnect electrical connections and use a hair dryer to dry connectors.

Air bag indicator light on 2006 Pontiac GranPre stays on and says the airbag is not turned on. How do I turn this light off? And or how do I test to see if the passenger airbag is actually working??


this is for the passenger seat? if so it has a weight limit switch in the seat .the weight has to be more than 105lbs to turn the light off so if little ones are in the seat it wont go off in a collision because the force of the bag deploying can kill them

How do you turn the passenger air bags on in a 2006 Jeep commander?


it's weight activated. I believe anything over 25? pounds will turn it on - you should see the light go off once something of that weight is in the passenger seat

2006 Ford F150 ABS light and Air bag light stays on


The usual problem causing the AIR BAG light is a poor connection on the YELLOW CONNECTOR under the passenger seat.

Push it firmly together and that should cure the Air Bag Light
