The air bag warning lamp is displayed in the Instrument panel and will illuminate as a bulb check, when the ignition is switched on. See AIR BAG (AMBER)


If the warning lamp indicates that a fault is present in the system, do not use a child restraint on the front passenger seat.

If any of the following warning lamp conditions occur, the vehicle should be checked by a Retailer/Authorized Repairer immediately:

  • The warning lamp fails to illuminate when the ignition is switched on.
