Does anyone have to have the airbag passenger sensor replaced? I took mine in and they cleaned the connectors but did not solve the problem. Costs $400. Took it back and they say the passenger sensor in the seat needs replaced. $800 part $250 labor. Should they give me a $200 credit toward replacing the sensor since they did not fix it the first time?

I had this go bad in a different car. Apparently the way the government mandates the seat sensors be built makes them easily damaged by liquid. Spill a drink on the passenger seat or leave the passenger window open when it rains and it's over. And yes the sensors are very expensive to replace. Being a regulated part that's no surprise. And They may have to replace the entire seat bottom cushion. You could look at buying a used passenger seat and switching it. It may be cheaper.
