Airbag warning light won't go off even if you put the seatbelt on and stays on all the time on passenger side. Looking for someone who knows how to fix this on the cheap

Airbag light on instrument panel stayed on constantly. Read forums on the internet and found that the bulb in the dash for the passenger airbag light had blown, replaced bulb, airbag light on instrument panel went out. $6 fix!!!

This is the second time my car has had this problem in the last two years. When it airbag warning light illuminated stayed on, i took it to the madza dealer and they told me it was warranted and repaired it at no charge. They found that the spring had slipped off sensor. Now again the light has came on and i do not understand how a safety feature came just malfunction so easily without any damage to it and i fear that the bag may open on me. I no longer had any warranty on my car and feel that with a safety issue like this it should not malfunction without a cause and should have to be covered at no charge even after the car warranty has expired.

passenger air bag stays off even with someone in the seat
The airbag light came on 4 years ago . I took it to dealer , they charged 300 for diagnostics and then about 400 for repair. It was ok for 6 months and after the warranty of their repair was over the light came back on :-( .i hadto spend about 300 $ again to repair it. Now it's back on, and I haven't bothered to repair it

The light illuminated around the time the driver's side seat belt mechanism failed. When the car is turned initially wont come on, after a couple of minutes it turns on.

Same problem. Also the passenger airbag light behind the gear shift comes on randomly. Even when there is no weight on the passenger seat.

the dealership service dept noted that the airbag is functional but the light itself is the problem. we decided to just let it stay that way.

Airbag light was illuminated and then turned off after having passenger. Stayed off for a couple of days and then turned back on. Off again and then on again. Dealership diagnosed the issue to be a bad clock spring. The clock spring was replaced and no more issues. Over $400 repair.
Drivers side air bag light stays on. Repair place wants $80 hr to look for problem. How is that possible

The driver's side light came on two days ago and scared me to death because I was driving at the time. I thought the airbag may deploy! If the airbag will work if needed, then I could live with the light on.
