Front passenger sensing system  - Airbag supplemental restraint system (SRS) - Seating and Safety Restraints - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

The front passenger sensing system is designed to meet the regulatory requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 208 and is designed to disable (will not inflate) the front passengers frontal airbag under certain conditions.

The front passenger sensing system works with sensors that are part of the front passengers seat and safety belt. The sensors are designed to detect the presence of a properly seated occupant and determine if the front passengers frontal airbag should be enabled (may inflate) or disabled (will not inflate).

The front passenger sensing system will disable (will not inflate) the front passengers frontal airbag if:

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.
a front passenger takes his/her weight off of the seat for a period of time.
