AIR BAG WARNING LAMP

WARNING

Even with advanced air bags, children can be seriously injured or killed. Never place a child in any type of child restraint or booster seat in the front passenger seat. Children under the age of 13 should always travel in a rear seat.

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 air bag warning lamp and illuminates as a bulb check when the electrical system is switched on. See AIR BAG (AMBER).

If any of the following warning lamp conditions occur, consult a retailer/authorized 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 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) being monitored include:

  • SRS warning indicator.

  • Rotary coupler.

  • Air bag modules.

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

  • Front seat buckle switches.

  • Front seat track position sensor.

  • Air bag diagnostic control unit.

  • Crash and rollover sensors.

  • Air bag wiring harness.

  • Seat occupancy sensor.

  • Front passenger belt tension sensor.

  • Air bag status indicator.
