Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
This is the passenger air bag warning light. It is normal to be on whenever there is no one in the passenger seat. It illuminates to tell you that the passenger air bag is disabled.If you sit in the passenger seat you will see the air bag light will go out and the seat belt light will turn on. This is accomplished via a weight sensor in the passenger seat that is calibrated to tell how heavy the person is in the seat (so it knows whether or not to turn the air bag on... it doesn't want to deploy if for example you have a 40lb child in the seat etc).As long as the primary air bag light in the gauge cluster is not staying on, everything is operating normally.
