Our 2014 Range rover sport passenger side airbag indicator deactivates intermittently during multiple trips at highway speeds with an adult in the passenger seat. After 7-12 minutes the indicator light near the sunshade button will illuminate to note the passenger airbag has been deactivated or is not operational; even though the passenger is sitting correctly and maintaining constant weight on the seat. Moving around the seat or shifting weight from one side to the other will not extinguish the indicator light; however briefly unbuckling the seat belt while the vehicle is moving and then quickly buckling the seat belt will cause the indicator light to shut off for 7 to 12 minutes. After this unbuckling and buckling process has been completed the light will come on again. The Land Rover dealership inspected this vehicle and found no problems with the passenger air bag sensors. Land Rover also never mentioned to me that this issues has occurred with other Range rover vehicles. On another note, the air bag indicator light is severely underilluminated. Very difficult to see during the day and there is no other visual or audio queue to the driver that the passenger air bag has been deactivated. This is troubling because you may never notice the issue unless it occurs at night, but even then it is still difficult to see in the dark.[xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Passenger side airbag indicator activates and deactivates intermittently during a single trip with a single passenger. For example, after 45 minutes into a trip driving a steady 75 mph, the indicator light will illuminate to note that the passenger airbag is now deactivated and will remain this way for the remainder of the 4-hour trip. This occurs despite the fact that passenger is sitting as she should, not moving about, and weighs 120 pounds. No amount of moving around or sitting still changes the deactivation light. Undoing the seat belt and refastening will occasionally cause the light to shut off for 10 or 15 minutes, but it comes back on again and stays on permanently. On shorter, local trips that last around a half hour at lower speeds, the passenger airbag light does not illuminate, meaning that the airbags are activated. The vehicle has been brought to Land Rover Chicago twice, and they refuse to service or assist further. Land Rover corporate also claims operation is normal. Yet, no one can explain why the airbag protection is intermittent, what weight you must be to receive airbag protection, or what is causing the computer to change its mind 45 minutes into a trip. Nor can anyone explain why the same passenger has airbag protection during local trips but not on longer trips at faster speed.
