I have had similar interment problems with the Air Bag too. I have taken it in for the dealer to scan. They found nothing and sent me on my way. The light stays on for days at times and other times for a few minutes. I have not figured out any pattern to it.

It sounds like your passenger seat is out of calibration. Some reason or another the seat is sensing more weight on seat than empty, like if a child is seating there, which will eluminate light (if weight is under 60lbs) to indicate air bag is off. Just a thought.

Mine happens when one or two people are in the vehicle both seat belted. Nothing is in the passenger seat when one person is in the vehicle. Light comes on while starting then doesn't turn off for a few miles if at all. No codes stored. Factory radio/Nav unit. Sometimes the light comes on while driving down the road for no reason.

On Edit: I'm not talking about the indicator that states the passenger air bag is off. I'm talking about the air bag indicator that states a problem with the system.

Exactly that's how my wife feels about it to. Since it's her ride.
