AIRBAG-WARNLEUCHTE

WARNING

The airbag warning lamp indicates a potential fault with the vehicle's restraint system. A fault with the restraint system could result in serious injury or death in the event of a severe accident.

WARNING

If the airbag warning lamp indicates that a fault is present in the system, do not use a child restraint on the front passenger seat. In the event of a severe accident, serious injury or death could result.

The instrument panel displays the airbag warning lamp as a bulb check when the ignition is switched on. See AIRBAG (ORANGE).

If any of the following airbag warning lamp conditions occur, the vehicle should be checked by a retailer/authorised repairer immediately:

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

  • The warning lamp fails to extinguish within 6 seconds of the ignition being switched on.

  • The warning lamp illuminates at any time other than during the bulb check when the ignition is switched on.

When the ignition is switched on, a diagnostic control unit monitors the readiness of the system’s electrical circuits. The elements of the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) being monitored include:

  • Airbag warning lamp.

  • Rotary coupler.

  • Airbag modules.

  • Front and outboard rear seat belt pre-tensioners.

  • Front seat belt buckle switches.

  • Front seat track position sensor.

  • Airbag diagnostic control unit.

  • Crash and rollover sensors.

  • Airbag wiring harness.

  • Airbag status indicator lamp.
