Passenger Airbag Sensor

Has anyone else had problems with their passenger airbag seat sensor? It reacts to the absolute slightest things. Started dinging when my ipod sat on the seat and as soon as i removed it, it turned off. Just wondering if all cobalts are like this or if mine's doing something weird.

Their is a GM bulletin out about that. You are not supposed to set any electronic devices on your seat such as iPod, phone etc on the seat. It can do exactly what you are describing and interfere with it.

Well, mine's not the actual airbag light. It just goes off as if someone was sitting there when my phone or ipods on it. Also yes my droid would do it as well.
