"passenger airbag off" light
i went out on a date with this girl yesterday and noticed "passenger airbag off" light was on.
it disappeared after i dropped her off..
i'll keep my eye on it next time i see her.... but do u guys think she's too small or too light for passenger airbag?
she's about 5'0~'1 less than 100 pounds. my guess is at 90~95 range.
yes. try dating less minors.
Just kidding, don't mind me.

that reply was actually so funny i am typing that i laughed out loud to myself. Ridiculous.
i could be wrong, but i think weight range is 35-65 lbs for when the airbag will turn OFF. other than that it should still be on. perhaps a re-up with the dealer will fix your wagon?

Hopefully you get to go on another date with her to see if the light comes on again.
I had the same issue with a girl that was around just below 100 pounds. When she lifted her feet up the light went off, so I guess the limit is 100.
took the car to the dealer for oil change and service advisor also thinks it's her weight.
I remember seeing in the manual it may also be effected by position in the seat. I've had the airbag light off when I have weight on the front seat (heavy briefcase or other items).
qFront Passenger SeatWeight Sensors
Your vehicle is equipped with a front passenger seat weight sensors as a part of the
supplemental restraint system. These sensors are located under both of the front passenger
seat rails. These sensors determine the total seated weight on the front passenger seat. The
SAS unit is designed to prevent the front passenger front and side air bags and seat belt
pretensioner system from deploying if the total seated weight is less than approximately 30
kg (66 lbs).
To reduce the chance of injuries caused by deployment of the front passenger air bag, the
system deactivates the front passenger front and side air bags and also the seat belt
pretensioner system when:
l There is no passenger in the front passenger seat. (The front passenger air bag
deactivation indicator light does not illuminate.)
l The total seated weight on the front passenger seat is less than approximately 30 kg (66
lbs). (The front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light illuminates.)
This system shuts off the front passenger front and side air bags and seat belt pretensioner
system, so make sure the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light illuminates
according to the following table.
The air bag/front seat belt pretensioner system warning light flashes and the front
passenger air bag deactivation indicator light illuminates if the sensors have a possible
malfunction. If this happens, the front passenger front and side air bags and seat belt
pretensioner system will not deploy.

Always sit in the passenger seat
properly with the seatback upright and
feet on the floor:
Your front passenger seat has weight
sensors, sitting in the front passenger
seat improperly out of position or
with the seatback reclined too far
while the vehicle is moving is
dangerous as it can take off weight
from the seat bottom and affect the
weight determination of the front
passenger sensing system. As a result
the front passenger will not have the
supplementary protection of the air
bag and seat belt pretensioner, which
could result in serious injury. Always
sit upright against the seatback with
your feet on the floor.
On another note, I would not want to have my head resting againt the door/ window in a sleeping position when the side airbags go off!
