Eclipse Cross

  • 800 miles
When I plug my phone in and set it on the passengers seat, the passengers side airbag and seat-belt system activate. The airbag light turns on like someone is siting there, and the fasten seat belt light flashes. If I lift the charging phone off the seat and set it in the center consul, the system returns to normal - airbag light and fasten seat-belt light turn off. I had the system checked out at my dealership and their conclusion is to not set anything on the passengers seat, and it does state in owners manual to not set anything on the passengers seat. However this issue only occurs when the phone is plugged in and sitting on passenger seat. The issue does not happen if any other object is placed on the passengers seat or if the phone is unplugged and sitting on passenger seat. This issue will happen weather the car is in park or driving. The issue did not begin to happen until approximately 30 days after I bought the vehicle new on July 24, 2020. Now the issue happens consistently, but not every time.
