no its not normal. More than likely you might have a bad air bag sensor on the passenger side. Unless its a big deal, I would turn the passenger side off and not worry about it. Otherwise you might wanna take it to the dealer and have them look at it. But most of the time airbag repairs are not cheap.

Just take the airbag out. Mine is always on, but then again, I took the whole damn unit out of the dash :). I mean, how often are you going to be riding passenger in your own vehicle? As long as its not you without the airbag, who cares :)

mine did the same thing and i replaced the switch and it fixed it... I called a buddy of mine at the dealer who actually scanned the codes and he said it quite common on the 98 + s10's for that switch to go belly up...


Autozone can not scan airbag codes you have to have a tech 2 to scan them mainly cause there stored in the air bag control module not the pcm....
