What if I think the Passenger Air Bag Off Light is incorrect?
If you think that the Passenger Air Bag Off Light is turned on when it shouldn’t be, there could be a number of different reasons. Assuming that the person in the passenger front seat is adult sized and sitting in the seat properly, check for the following:
Items stuck under the seat can throw off the sensing system.
Items between the center console and the edge of the seat can throw off the system.
Items on the passenger’s lap may throw off the system.
Anything stuck between the seat belt and the seat or the side pillar can throw off the system.
Anything pushing against the back of the seat cushion could cause the system to read incorrectly.
