What does the airbag status Warning Light mean?

A: The airbag status Warning Light is located ...

The airbag status Warning Light is located near the climate controls, and will let you know when the front passenger air bag is turned off. When the front passenger seat is unoccupied, or occupied by a child or child restraint system, this light will turn on. If the light does not turn on when the seat is occupied by a child or infant, immediately stop your vehicle, and move the child to the rear seat. The light will also come on if the front passenger is not sitting in the seat properly. If the light comes on when the seat is occupied by an adult, tell them to sit back in their seat, and upright, to ensure their safety.
