Just a little information for those posting about the sensor reading a passenger when there isn't one.
My Terrain (2015) will activate the passenger airbag sensor when my phone is charging and placed in the passenger seat. This confirms that it is susceptible to interference from electronic devices. Also would confirm other issues I have read here such as someone placing a baking sheet in the passenger seat and the airbag activating. (Electromagnetic field disruption, [ I'm an electronics tech]).
Also for mine, it does not activate if the phone is not charging. I put up a Facebook post to see if it's the same for other manufacturers, and will post results after a few days of responses.

Mine Too

I thought I was going crazy after I got the car. I was driving one day and the dinger started. I could not for the live of me figure out why. I never attributed it to my phone until about a week later when I noticed that the seat belt light for the passenger was flashing. I picked my phone up and it stopped. It does not d it evert time either 2013 SLE1 V6
