hi there,
just got a 2014 soul red i gt ! love it so far....
the light on the dash that says "passenger airbag off" stays on all the time.
if i'm reading the manual correctly, it is supposed to go off after 10 secs ?
can you guys confirm what yours does ?
there is nothing in the seat over 5lbs.
thanks!

Mine stays on if I'm driving alone. When my husband is driving, and I'm in the passenger seat, it stays off.

thanks all!
that seems crazy to me, to basically have an alert light on ALL the time on the nice, clean dash :(
guess i'll put some black tape over it.

You can even see that light on in some of the commercials that show the inside of the car while somebody is driving.

I thought it was odd too seeing that my 1st gen would only flash the light then go out if the seat was empty.

Always been on if the seat is empty. It's like this in all of the newer cars, thanks to the Govt item previously listed. Now that you're talking about it, you'll notice it for a few days and then go back to not caring/not seeing it.

jerry- i think you're right about the not noticing it. i think it just takes time to adjust. for me i always had the wife in the car so i never noticed it. suddenly i have the day off and i paint the town red alone in my car revving it up and suddenly i notice the light on. :)

also i think i've been hearing reports 2015 owners (USA), the indicator actually goes OFF after a few seconds if it doesn't detect anyone or anything.
