Passenger front airbag issue.

My wife has found the seats a bit hard for long journeys (once or twice a week we have to do a 4 Hr round trip)
So she bought an Halfords comfy seat cushion. Great because it raises the seat height and makes it comfy.
But we've noticed the M├ęgane switched the passenger airbag off.
It seems to think a child seat is in use.
There doesn't seem a way to over ride that function.

Sort of fix d this
Seat sensor measures capacitance (the amount of water in the lump sitting on it)
And from that judg s if it's an adult, child or car seat.
My wife's gel cushion lowers the capacitance because the person is further from the seat.
A sheat of baking foil under the bottom mesh of the gel seat tricks it into seeing an adult
So issue resolved.
