First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

I have a 2005 chevy silverado , service passenger air bag light came on.what could be the problem ?

This could be a couple of things.
1. The sensor in the seat is not working any longer and needs replaced.
2. The airbag itself is not working.
When you turn on the key, the body control module checks all the devices and has found a problem with one of them. This is a dealer only service item because it involves the air bag. It is not going to be cheap if it is the airbag itself.

Could have damaged the front sensor, but you'll need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with testing.

you need to take this to a shop that has the capability to do air bag work as this may be a false code by the way you discribe how it happened.and there will be code in the computer and it will have to be clear from the ars system.

I had this same issue happen to me with my heating/cooling unit (among other issues with the fan speed) about 6 times. They replaced the resistor 3 times and its fine. Luckily, the first 5 occurrences were under warranty and the dealer covered the 6th fix. I'm still not happy between this problem and issues 2x with the service engine and service air bags... I only have 26k miles on this thing and bought the truck brand new in Oct 2006.
