Air bag light stayed on after below zero temperatures but after shutting off engine and restarting, it went out after 3-4 seconds. 2 incidents: One day low was -7 2nd low was -12 temp at time of engine start and occurrence was 1st day + 7 2nd + 15 does this mean when below zero air bag pressure charge falls below a level that can operate the air bag?

My 85 pound, 55 year old, 5 foot 3 inch, good health wife is not protected by air bags when sitting in the passenger front seat. Air bags in my Ford 2010 Explorer are designed to go inactive when a person of my wife's stature is sitting in the passenger front seat the auto company tried several different Explorer to determine if this was the same in all of their Explorer, only one Explorer worked properly and protected my wife. Ford refuses to offer any remedies or repair this defect, and as indicated above exists in more than the vehicle I bought..
