PEDESTRIAN AIRBAG

Some vehicles may be fitted with a pedestrian airbag. The pedestrian airbag is located beneath the bonnet.

The pedestrian airbag operates at speeds between 25 km/h (16 mph) and 50 km/h (31 mph). In the event of a frontal impact with a pedestrian, sensors in the front bumper trigger the pedestrian airbag, causing it to inflate. In the event that the pedestrian airbag inflates, stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. After inflation of the pedestrian airbag, the vehicle should be checked by a retailer/authorised repairer.

If a fault should occur with the system, the instrument panel displays the message Check Pedestrian System. If this occurs, the vehicle should be checked by a retailer/authorised repairer immediately.
