the problem: the status of the passenger-side airbag may not display correctly. if the passenger airbag is incorrectly displayed as on when it is not, front-seat passengers may be unaware that the airbag won't deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
the fix: dealers will update the audio head unit software for free.
