Well...that's big news. How many people are careful about the stuff they place in the passenger seat? Geez...I've put my car-wash bucket full of suds there before!?!? Now we know that the occupancy sensor is part of the seat cover and it isn't waterproof!
Guess that's another item I'll add to my list of "Mirage spare parts that don't seem expensive but they are."
I tried to buy some quality neoprene waterproof seat covers, but I haven't found a source that makes them for the Mirage.
