Can anyone explain what the "Smart Airbags" pre-January '05 do versus the new ones? My factory sticker on an '05 MCS 11/04 build says I have "Dual Stage Dual Threshold Smart Airbags", and a reference in "MINI" by Patrick C Paternie published in 2002 says: "Front airbags are of a "smart" design that can detect the strength of an impact as well as the presence of a passenger." TheOfficeMaven's post suggests that is new after 1/05. Or, is the January change just the light that indicates that weight is or is not detected? My wife's '05 Highlander has a similar light--glows when occupied, off when not. Curious if anyone has the answer.
