Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question

Steve :

Your seat is suppose to have a sensor in the seat to tell the air bag module whether or not there is a underweight passenger in the seat and to turn the passenger air bag light off

Steve :

If the sensor is not in the seat or not plugged in this light will come on

JACUSTOMER-tyuz0ike- :

seat is plugged in but light stays on the light came on after i took the seat out as i had to drive else where to get the interior also changed drivers seat and no problem the plugs on the two new seats fit the seats i thimk are out of a vy

Steve :

JACUSTOMER-tyuz0ike- :

Steve :

there is special equipment to re zero the seat sensor you have to do this anytime the seat is removed or replaced

Steve :

You cannot do this yourself unless you buy the special tester

JACUSTOMER-tyuz0ike- :

Steve :

Usually the dealer can do this they charge about 1 hour labor

JACUSTOMER-tyuz0ike- :

Steve :

they use a tester to reset the zero point of the sensor

JACUSTOMER-tyuz0ike- :
