can someone help me find more information on the subject below, I can't find anything in the owners manual or find the light on the mirror....

For 2000, the Seville uses sensors designed to prevent deployment of the front passenger's air bag when the seat is empty or a small child is sitting there. According to Cadillac, this system provides safety benefits to children that cannot be realized with dual-stage or multi-stage inflation systems, which deploy with varying degrees of force depending upon the size of the passenger and the severity of the crash. Cadillac's weight-based sensors and pattern recognition technology can distinguish between a small adult female and a large child strapped into a child safety seat; if it's a small child, whether in a child safety seat or not, the air bag will not deploy. An indicator light on the rearview mirror tells the driver whether the air bag is enabled or suppressed. (Cadillac still recommends the back seat as the safest place for children, but its research indicates that people want, when absolutely necessary, the ability to properly restrain children in the front seat.)

Thanks
