for some reason nothing happens when i click "search this forum" so i'll just have to post a new thread as i can't really spend the time looking through thousands of posts...though i'd love to. recently bought a 2010 rav4 and the passenger airbag light almost always says off even though the seat is occupied by a large adult. have considered shorting the sensor wires (assuming they are closed by the sensor when someone is sitting there) but don't know if that would work- i never have children sitting in the front seat and have heard the cost of fixing this at the dealer is upwards of $400 for what really should be a safety recall item. have the seat out on the driveway and it looks like there are 4 sensors, one in each corner of the seat. maybe they all have to work, maybe one has failed, i really don't know what to think. anybody dealt with this themselves?
