    We've had the truck for two whole weeks now and we've noticed that the passenger airbag will, on rare occasions, show off instead of on when my wife is there. If we stop, kill the engine, and she unbuckles and gets out, then gets in, rebuckles, and I restart the engine, it shows to be on. We usually start the engine before buckling in, Texas summers heat up the inside of a car quickly and I don't waste time getting the cooling started. Is this something I need to have checked, or am I causing this during the buckle/startup sequence?

    I see what is going on here. Is this a nice way of telling your wife she is skinny and her tight little ass just will not set off the sensor? I suppose you plan on showing this thread to her as well. I'm gonna keep my eye on you mister...

    Just kidding....

    I would have it checked. The sensor is supposed to go off at over something like 40lbs or something like that. Should be an easy thing to diagnose. Keep us posted on this please.

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    The sequence doesn't matter if the transmission is in park tho it can be in drive and it should still pick up someone getting in the seat.

    Sometimes it may kick out depends how she sits in the seat like the edge for example.

    If none the above solve the problem take it to the dealer and have them test the weight sensor in the seat.
