AIRBAG WARNING LAMP

WARNING

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

WARNING

If the 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 an accident, serious injury or death could result.

The instrument panel displays an airbag warning lamp and illuminates as a bulb check when the electrical system is switched on. See AIRBAG (AMBER).

If any of the following warning lamp conditions occur, consult a retailer/authorised repairer immediately:

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

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

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

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

  • SRS warning indicator.

  • Rotary coupler.

  • Airbag modules.

  • Seat belt pre-tensioners (front and outboard rear seat belts).

  • Front seat belt buckle switches.

  • Airbag diagnostic control unit.

  • Crash and rollover sensors.

  • Airbag wiring harness.

  • Airbag status indicator.
