I had the same question. I've previously had cars where the light comes on when no one is in the seat. But after checking with the dealership this is how the Compass Passenger Airbag works:

If a person that does not meet the required weight for airbags, the light will come on and stay on until the person leaves. The light indicates the airbag is turned off. However if the the weight is so small it does not register, the airbag will stay on and the light will not come light up.

So if you have something heavy there like books, etc. The light may come on if it's heavy enough to register weight but not heavy enough to meet the airbag requirement.

OK...let me tweak this a bit...I usually always have a laptop or biref case on the passenger seat when I go to work, and the light never came on. Now suddenly, with or without anything on the passenger seat, it will come on and then turn off again. It is not a consistent problem. Has anyone had this type of issue before?
