Honda Accord: How the Passenger Airbag Off Indicator Works
This indicator alerts you that the passenger’s front airbag has been shut off because weight sensors detect about 65 lbs (29 kg) or less (the weight of an infant or small child) on the front passenger’s seat.
It doesnot meanthere is a problem with the airbag.
Be aware that objects placed on the front seat can cause the indicator to come on.
If no weight is detected on the front seat, the airbag will be automatically shut off. However, the indicator will not come on.
The passenger airbag off indicator may come on and off repeatedly if the total weight on the seat is near the airbag cutoff threshold.
If an adult or teenage passenger is riding in front, move the seat as far to the rear as possible, and have the passenger sit upright and wear the seat belt properly.
If the indicator comes on with no front seat passenger and no objects on the seat, or with an adult riding there, something may be interfering with the weight sensors. Look for and remove:
Any items under the front passenger’s seat.
Any object hanging on the seat or in the seat-back pocket.
Any object(s) touching the rear of the seat-back.
If no obstructions are found, have your vehicle checked by a dealer as soon as possible.
