I just had the engine on my 2004 Toyota Camry LE replaced (since the engine had over 300,00 miles on it).
Now ever since the engine has bee replaced I have a LED on my dash that stays lit at all times that says "Air Bag off" (see the picture). There are no other lights on or problems with my vehicle such as the check engine light or the perform maintenance light.
This light stays lit saying "Air Bag off" at all times including while someone is riding in the front passenger side seat with the seat belt buckled or unbuckled and says the same thing when no one is in the front passenger side seat.
Before the engine was replaced this light would only appear if someone was sitting in the front passenger side seat without the seat belt buckled.
A mechanic at the place where I had the engine replaced at says that there is a switch somewhere that needs to be flipped to re-enable the passenger side air bag. Other people have told me that this is nothing to worry about. I have been told by my mechanic that he will research how to fix this but I haven't heard back from him after a week.
I would like to make sure that the passenger side air bag is enabled at all times while the passenger side seat belt is buckled to ensure the safety of my passengers.
What needs to be done to make sure that the passenger side air bag is enabled? I will not attempt to make this change myself but will simply provide my mechanic with the instructions on how to do this.
