That's normal. Try not to lean against the side airbags.

Are you placing something on the passenger seat (i.e. briefcase, a bag, etc.)? The passenger seat has sensors in it to detect if the passenger isn't sitting properly. In those cases, it will not deploy the side airbag.

It has happened to me a few times where I've placed a grocery bag or other object on the seat and the light would turn on.

Try checking the crack between the seat back and the seat cushion. I found a hair brush in mine. It provided just enough pressure to turn the light on. Removing the brush solved the problem. Lean the seatback and clean all objects you find out. I don't know if this will solve your problem but it worked for me. 2003 Acura TLX.
