The sensor for the passenger airbag associated with the front passenger seat works erratically, and generally does not enable the front passenger airbag when a passenger is in the seat. This occurs with a full size adult in the seat. This condition seems to occur regardless of idling or driving conditions. It generally reports through indicators that the front passenger airbag is turned off and the airbag readiness indicator is lit to indicate a problem.

ABS stability tracking lights come on, car dies no power steering or brakes seems like a safety issue driving a car that is still moving with no steering or brakes. In the past the fuse box under the hood caught on fire and my electric seats would not shut off and burnt out.
