On Thursday the weatherman said it wouldn't start raining till after midnight. Well they were very wrong and a storm rolled through at 5pm. I left the sunroof popped up knowing I would be back before it was supposed to rain. Rained about an inch in less than 30 minutes and I'm a UPS driver so there was no way to get back and get it shut. Front seats and center console very wet. As soon as I started it the airbag sensor in the passenger seat thought someone was sitting there and I had to buckle the seatbelt to stop it from beeping and 48 hours later the seat is still not completely dry and the sensor is still on.
So my question is has anyone else experienced this and if so what did you do? Or is the sensor bad and does it need replaced?

you may want to wait for it to dry.
The sensor uses capacitance- and not weight to sense if a person is there.
The wetness may have caused a change in capacitance.... though not sure
