Safety features of your vehicle
When an adult is seated in the front pas-
senger seat, if the PASS AIR BAG “OFF”
indicator is on, turn the ignition switch to
the LOCK or OFF position and ask the
passenger to sit properly (sitting upright
with the seat back in an upright position,
centered on the seat cushion with their
seat belt on, legs comfortably extended
and their feet on the floor). Restart the
engine and have the person remain in
that position. This will allow the system to
detect the person and to enable the pas-
senger air bag.
If the PASS AIR BAG "OFF" indicator is
still on, ask the passenger to move to the
rear seat.
The PASS AIR BAG "OFF" indicator
illuminates for about 4 seconds after the
ignition switch is turned to the ON posi-
tion or after the engine is started. If the
front passenger seat is occupied, the
occupant classification sensor will then
classify the front passenger after several
more seconds.
Do not allow an adult passenger to
ride in the front seat when the PASS
AIR BAG “OFF” indicator is illumi-
nated because the air bag will not
deploy in the event of a crash. If the
PASS AIR BAG "OFF" indicator
remains illuminated after the adult
passenger repositions themselves
properly and the car is restarted, it
is recommended that passenger
move to the rear seat because the
passenger's front air bag will not
Front seat passengers must stay
properly seated to avoid serious
injury from a deploying air bag.
Proper position
Do not put a heavy load in the front
passenger seatback pocket or on the
front passenger seat. Do not hang
onto the front passenger seat. Do not
hang any items, such as a seatback
table, on the front passenger seat-
back. Do not place feet on the front
passenger seatback. Do not place
any items under the front passenger
seat. Any of these could interfere
with proper sensor operation.
Even though your vehicle is
equipped with the occupant clas-
sification system, never install a
child restraint system in the front
passenger's seat. A deploying air
bag can forcefully strike a child
resulting in serious injuries or
death. Any child age 12 and
under should ride in the rear seat.
Children too large for child
restraints should use the avail-
able lap/shoulder belts. No mat-
ter what type of crash, children of
all ages are safer when restrained
in the rear seat.
