the front passenger seat is unoccupied, or has small/medium objects in the front seat.
the system determines that an infant is present in a rear-facing infant seat that is installed according to the manufacturers instructions.
the system determines that a small child is present in a forward-facing child restraint that is installed according to the manufacturers instructions.
the system determines that a small child is present in a booster seat.
