Confused by passenger airbag lights


Recommended Posts


So, I've had a Fiesta ecoboost (4 door) 1lt since july 15 (from new). It's got just over 2000 on the clock. It's just come back from a service and the passenger airbag light is on. I can't for the life of me remember if it was on before I took it so I'm now wondering if it's a malfunction. I know there's a dial type thing inside the glovebox that you can move to on or off. I've never had a car with airbags before and reading the manual doesn't make it any clearer to me. Are the driver airbags always on because I can't see a light for those? I can attach a pic, is this light on if the airbag is off or on if it's on? Thanks in advance

That means the passenger airbag is on. It can be turned off if you put a child seat there but the drivers airbag is always on and you can't change it.

As above, open your glove box & look in the top right, you'll see a switch. Put your key in & turn it & it'll say the airbag is OFF.

Remember to switch it back on whenever you're not carrying a childs car seat

So this is normal, it's supposed to be on always? 

Yes unless you’ve switched the airbag off, then OFF will be lit up.
