Passenger Airbag light comes on and off

Hi all. The title pretty much sums it up. While the Passenger Airbag light on the dash is usually illuminated to say "Off", I noticed that it turned off entirely the other day. I didn't notice anything out of the norm aside from having the windsheild wipers on Auto during heavy rain. Does the airbag turn itself on/off as needed? I just had it replaced as part of a factory recall, as well.



Thanks.

Sounds likely that the "airbag off" indicator light bulb probably burned out... it happens. It is possible that the sensor that detects a passenger (or anything heavier than a small child) in the front seat is broken and sensing that there's always someone sitting in that seat. But my money's on the bulb.

Thanks for the response. I'm assuming the Passenger Airbag should be ON at all times, unless I manually override it somehow, right? I double checked again and the light seems to be off/staying off, but it did flicker on/off the other day as described. I had the Passenger Side airbag replaced as part of a recall, but I still have the SRS light on my dash, which the dealer said was due to a faulty sensor in the seat belt buckle. Supposedly, they were going to order the part, but they haven't gotten in touch with me since I took it in to them initially. I even called about the part, but they said someone would "reach out to me" when it arrives, but I'm not holding my breath :/ Maybe that could be causing some issues with the Passenger Airbag light too?

Thanks again for your help.
