Passenger Side Air Bag Sensor Replacement

This short video should clear up some questions about replacing the passenger side air bar sensor.

So Hoosier, I take it from your video ..... if my occupied passenger seat light does NOT illuminate, then the light sensor may be faulty or the air bag has a problem? Correct?

The mechanic shop, with test gear to test the air bag, informs me there is nothing wrong with the air bag's functionality. They quoted a repair cost of the status light, but thus far I have just trusted their word that the air bag will function. A light going on and off seems less than significant.

Your video does tell me what is actually supposed to be happening on the dash. Thanks for your effort.

I don't think that the passenger side air bag is a problem. Most of what people here have experienced is either the light is malfunctioning or the seat sensor is faulty. I don't think that the passenger bag will deploy if the seat is not showing a passenger present. I am not sure how you would test the light to see if it is faulty.

My video here was mostly to show that you don't have to visit a dealer to have the sensor reprogrammed. There was some discussion here on the forum about that. And also to show that most likely most models and years either Sky or Solstice would be a viable replacement. If you are experiencing a code or "light" in the DIC then you most likely have a problem with the sensor.

Try turning on the car without the module connected. Get an airbag fault. Then see if you don't need the dealer to calibrate.

I unhooked the passenger side seat sensor and started vehicle. The "service air bag" warning light appeared in the DIC. I then shut off the vehicle and plugged the sensor back in restarted vehicle and no service air bag was showing. Restarted vehicle a couple of times more just to confirm, still no light.
