In the '05 model year, the passenger airbag will deactivate if the
occupant is under a certain weight; there's a weight sensor in the
seat; under a certain size/weight the airbag does more harm than
good. I don't know if this is new for the '05 MY, or was in previous
Audis, in what models, etc- but it was to comply with a federal
standard. The dealer service department, Audi Client Relations' 800
number, or brand specialist should be able to answer that question
