My passenger seat airbag is not working correctly. When someone sits in it the airbag light does not turn off. I have had it into the dealer 6 times and the problem is still not fixed. They have replaced the passenger seat and the seat belt. Still not fixed.

    Same issue. One response at another website said the dealership can reprogram (flash) the cars computer to fix this but most dealers do not know about this.

There is a sensor under the seat cushion that is basically a weight sensor, if a certain weight is not sensed then the airbag is turned off, it must be defective.

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.

Pull the fuse it won't affect the seatbelts from working correctly. otherwise you have to disconnect each seatbelt lock to find the defaulted lock. As for the airbag light; do you have the type that can be turned off with a key? It may be permanently turn off and needs to be turned back on with the key.

Air bag sensor keeps going off if someone is sitting in the passanger seat. they can not move or sometimes even if they breath the **** thing goes off.

I would have the sensor in the passenger seat checked but if you have that seat leaning back more than the first of second position, a very unsafe way to sit in a vehicle, then the sensor is ok it is the way the body weight is distributed in the seat. When the passenger is laying back it sets the weight off center and essentially removes any possible safety the Airbag could provide and actually turns the airbag into a weapon during an accident, not to mention the seat belt will not work correctly and will most likely kill instead of save the life since they are going to slip right under it.

I have the same issue, the dealer told me they can just change the sensor. However, he also told me the sensor is only for the airbag, that the seatbelt will work without it. So, if you are ok not having a working airbag, and willing to just trust the s/b then there is no need to fix it.
Anyone know how to turn the light off?

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.
