Passenger side airbag off message question


Dec 24, 2016
Washington, DC
Does the Passenger side airbag off message under the clock on the touchscreen stay on or does it just alert and disappear.

I have seen mine show up then disappear and wanted to make sure the sensor was functioning. The seat belt sensor works fine when someone is seated on the passenger side.

Thank you,

In my experience it is only on when no one is in the seat. Yesterday after my wife exited I noticed it was on. I think what you are experiencing is normal.
