You don't say whether your truck is a DC and maybe your buddy's is a reg or access cab.

The shutoff is primarily in case you have a small child in the front seat.
The mfrs generally recommend you put them in the back seat for safety. But, if you have a reg cab, there is no back seat, so the only option is a shut off switch. Most vehicles with a rear seat will not have the shutoff. I don't know about Access cabs -as to whether they would group them w/ the reg cab, or consider that a back seat. (If you can't put a baby seat back there, they would probably have the front passenger shut off available.)

The Access cab and regular cabs are the same in that they have a manual switch shut off. Sounds like you have a double cable where they are only off if the weight requirement is not met in the seat (I don't remember what that weight is).

Yea, yours has a pressure switch in the seat. Without a passenger, the Passenger Airbag light should be illuminated to say "Off". With a passenger, it should say "On".

I wondered the same thing when I bought mine. "Where is the key that everyone else has?"

If I do remember correctly the weight is set to 60lbs

63 to be exact...that's what we calibrated them at for Delphi. I get the (dis)satisfaction of doing seat testing for the SDM units to work properly. 2 things I've learned doing testing on these, 1. Don't cinch down your car seats too tight, and 2. Don't have small children, or women under 100 lbs sit on the forward part of the seat. The bladders will sense more weight and trigger the switch to ON.

I thought that Toyota was brining the shut off switch to Double Cabs in 07?

Mine frequently trips if I leave my 12# briefcase on the seat crooked. Just enough pressure in one spot to trip the switch.
