Airbag
system
the
seat
may
prevent
the
Advanced
Airbag
Sys-
tem
for
the
front
passenger
seat
from
doing
its
job
ina
crash.
The
front
Advanced
Airbag
System
consists
of
the
following:
Crash
sensors
in
the
front
of
the
vehicle
that
measure
vehicle
acceleration/deceleration
to
provide
information
to
the
Advanced
Airbag
System
about
the
severity
of
the
crash.
An
electronic
control
unit,
with
integrated
crash
sensors
for
front
and
side
impacts.
The
control
unit
“decides”
whether
to
fire
the
front
airbags
based
on
the
information
received
from
the
crash
sensors.
The control
unit also
“de-
cides”
whether
the
safety
belt
pretensioners
should
be
activated.
An
Advanced
Airbag
with
gas
generator
and
control
valve
for
the
driver inside
the
steering
wheel
hub.
An
Advanced
Airbag
with
gas
generator
and
control
valve
inside
the
instrument
panel
for
the
front
passenger.
A
capacitive
passenger
detection
system
under-
neath
the
front
passenger
seat
cover.
This
sys-
tem
measures
the
electrical
capacitance
of
the
person
in
the
seat.
The
information
registered
is
sent
continuously
to
the
electronic
control
unit
to
regulate
deployment
of
the
front
Ad-
vanced
Airbag
on
the
passenger
side.
An
airbag
monitoring
system
and
indicator
light
ka
in
the
instrument
cluster.
—Asensor
in
each
front
seat
registers
the
dis-
tance
between
the
respective
seat
and
the
steering
wheel
or
instrument
panel.
The
infor-
mation
registered
is
sent
continuously
to
the
electronic
control
unit
to
regulate
deployment
of
the
front
Advanced
Airbags.

—Asensor
in
the
safety
belt
latch
for
the
driver
and
for
the
front seat
passenger
that
senses
whether
that
safety
belt
is
latched
or
not
and
transmits
this
information
to
the
electronic
control
unit.
ZA
WARNING
Damage
to
the
front
passenger
seat
can
pre-
vent
the
front
airbag
from
working
properly.
Improper
repair
or
disassembly
of
the
front
passenger
and
driver
seat
will
prevent
the
Advanced
Airbag
System
from
functioning
properly.
Repairs
to
the
front
passenger
seat
must
be
performed
by
qualified
and
properly
trained
workshop
personnel.
Never
remove
the
front
passenger
or
driver
seat
from
the
vehicle.
Never
remove
the
upholstery
from
the
front
Passenger
Seat.
Never
disassemble
or
remove
parts
from
the
seat
or
disconnect
wires
from
it.
Never
carry
sharp
objects
in
your
pockets
or
put
them
on
the
seat.
The
capacitive
passen-
ger
detection
mat
in
the
front
passenger
seat
will
not
function properly
if
it
is
punc-
tured.
Never
carry
things
on
your
lap
or
carry
ob-
jects
on
the
front
passenger
seat.
Such
ob-
jects can
influence
the
capacitance
regis-
tered
by
the
capacitive
passenger
detection
system,
so
that
incorrect
information
is
pro-
vided
to
the
airbag
control
unit.
Never
store
items
under
the
front
passenger
seat.
Parts
of
the
Advanced
Airbag
System
under
the
passenger
seat
could
be
dam-
aged,
preventing
them
and
the
airbag
sys-
tem
from
working
properly.
Never
place
seat
covers
or
replacement
up-
holstery
that
have
not
been
specifically
ap-
proved
by
Audi
on
the
front
seats.
Seat
covers
can
prevent
the
Advanced
Airbag
System
from
recognizing
child
restraints
or
occupants
on
the
front
passenger
seat
and
prevent
the
side
airbag
in
the
seat
backrest
from
deploying
properly.
—If
a
seat
heater
has
been
retrofitted
or
oth-
erwise
added
to
the
front
passenger
seat,
never
install
any
child
restraint
system
on
this
seat.
Never
use
cushions,
pillows,
blankets,
or
similar
items
on
the
front
passenger
seat.
The
additional
layers
