Light Fault Code 25......B1871......Passenger Airbag Deactivation (PAD) Switch Fault

Something is wrong wih the PAD switch under the HVAC controls. Could be connector unplugged, bad switch, etc.

Same thing happened to me, I had a flashlight rolling around underneath my seat for years and it caused something to come unplugged. Dealer fixed it for free but warned me of my dumbassedness.
