While the vehicle is in motion, and with a passenger weighing 115 pounds on the passenger seat the passenger seat air bag warning light comes on while the vehicle is in operation. When the seating is adjusted the warning light goes off again. Ford Taurus does not have an indication to say if the passenger airbag is activated or not. Even when the passenger airbag is not activated (no passenger in seat) the air bags indicator stays dark. So when a the passenger is on the seat there is no way to know if the air bag has turned itself off as it did not detect the passenger. In cases where the car is involved in an accident an un activated air bag could cause a serious situation and the driver has no way to know the actual status of the air bag.
