Trigger weight for the third row?

    I have both my kids (7 years old ~42 and 3 years ~30 lbs) in the third row seat, but when they are in it the car doesn't seem to register the weight. Is it because the car seats distribute it too much so its not centered on the seat bottom or does it just not register less than 80 lbs?

    This causes only issues with sending the second row seats back. They don't auto go to the first position since they don't think the rear seats are occupied, and the AC system won't turn on when set to "Auto" because it says its unoccupied.

    Could you try tightening their car seats a little more? That may be enough to consistently trigger the weight setting.
