Passenger Side Air bag malfunction?
By cdooley on


2011 Ford Escape XLT 4dr SUV (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


This is my 2nd Ford Escape (now driving the new 2011).
I love how it drives. However, my passenger side-air bag keeps defaulting to "off" even when I am sitting in the passenger side!!!
I am about a 105# female and I read the owner's manual.
It says it is designed to disable (will not inflate) when believing an infant is in the front seat.
I am NOT an infant!
I have had it in to 2 different dealerships (one while traveling) to have it looked at.
I'm now told I am jut not 'heavy enough for it to register my weight.'
I just leased this thing in December.
Not happy!!!
