Passenger airbag light

Just a quick question about the passenger airbag light that is above the dome light. I recently had water leaking from the front under the cowl into the inside of the passenger side, I took it to the dealer and they fixed it and they said they had to replace the airbag module and a sensor because it shorted out from the water. Anyway, I noticed water leaked again on the passenger side after we had heavy rain the day before. It was just a little on the edge, I'm going to take the car back and have them look at it again, but not for another 2 weeks though as I am taking the car away on a trip next weekend.

Everytime you start the car, is it normal for the passenger airbag light to come on and then go off. I assume if there was a malfunction with any part of the airbag, the light would stay on. I never really pay attention or notice it, but since after this whole ordeal and having another leak again, I'm more worry about the little things now.

I have a 2014 and if I have my purse sitting on the passenger seat, the light comes on and stays on. I don't know if this helps you at all.

Thanks, I was driving with a friend today, I noticed the light was off, I can only assume the airbags are working. Sometimes I have my bookbag on the passenger seat too, but the light never remains on.

You have a sensor with a preset weight. If you put something or someone in that seat and the sensor picks up that whatever is in the seat does not weigh enough for proper airbag deployment it turns the light on. Mine comes on if put ANYTHING in the seat and then the light stays on til I smack the seat with my hand----total pain in the ***.
