My sister has just bought a 2005 GS300 after having a ride in mine and falling in love with it! She has got an issue with the passenger airbag warning light saying the airbag is off whether someone is sitting in the seat or not. She has checked the airbag switch which is in the on position, Any ideas?

Mostly likely a sensor under the seat. It arms the passenger airbag when someone is sitting in the seat, typically as the seat is moved back and forth the wires get damaged. Could also be a control module or a wiring issue somewhere, you'd have to take it to someone who can diagnose it for you.

If it is the sensor you may be able to get a bypass module on ebay that will bypass the sensor and just leave the airbag armed all the time, however bear in mind it would probably be illegal to later sell the car to someone else without telling them about this.
