Is the passenger side airbag supposed to always be on(light on the console off), and IF someone or something is in the passenger seat and weighs under aprox 75 lbs then the airbag turns off?, and then the passenger air bag light on the console lights up?
Mine worked that way until I had some paint work done on the passenger front fender, and now the passenger airbag off light is always on, unless someone sits in the passenger seat.
The way it used to be is correct, something is wrong now. his is how it hould be: The airbag is off if there is nothing in the seat, and the light is off too. Rather than light up constantly, it turns the light off if it detects nearly no weight on the seat. When you put something less than 75lbs in the seat, the light turns on to remind you that the airbag is off. More than 75lbs, the light turns off and airbag is active.
Just because the light is off doesn't mean the airbag is active. There has to be weight on the seat for the airbag to be active.
If your light is always on even on an empty seat, something is not right. Maybe the seat sensor is messed up.
Well that explains it! I always thought because the light was off it meant the airbag was on, which then always made me wonder why in the world it would be on if there was nothing in the seat and then turn off when it sensed something under 75 lbs in the seat.
