You might want to double check your fuel injector plugs as well, make sure one did not get unplug. I had change my wire and plugs and started getting a misfire. I look at the problem for about 2 week with the engine sakeing while I was driving. Went to change the plugs again than i saw one of my injector was unplug. Hope this helps good luck.

Yes it says that the PAD light is inoperative, but wouldn't that mean that the airbag light wouldn't be on?? Cause to me it looks like it works, cause its on all the time.

Do you have Passenger Airbag if so you might want to check the Passenger Airbag Disable switch see if that bulb is out. I have read that will throw a code out.

No that light should not be on all the time, you might want to get that checked out there is a fault in the system i think.

Possable causes for light.
an open or short to ground on circuit 1113 (Y/LG).
a damaged or burned out PAD indicator.
a damaged or inoperative PAD switch.
a damaged or inoperative RCM.
a blown PAD switch I/P Fuse 22 (7.5 A).
an RCM internal concern.

Airbag light should not be on all the time... It should go through the check systems process when you turn the key to start the engine then turn off.

The passenger light is never on, never turns on, so I'll assume that that is the issue

Yeah that light should say off or on letting you know. I would would say that it if you don't see it.
