THE LIGHT INDICATING THE PASSENGER AIRBAG IS ARMED DOESN'T GO ON ANYMORE. I HAD THIS DIAGNOSED AND THE CODE B0081 SHOWS UP INDICATING A FAULTY PASSENGER PRESENCE MODULE. WITH THE MODULE NOT SENSING A PASSENGER, THE AIR BAG PROBABLY WILL NOT DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH. THE DEALER SAID IT'S NOT UNDER RECALL, ALTHOUGH THE 2007 EQUINOX WAS RECALLED FOR THIS DEFECT.
