Do not place an electronic device
such as a laptop computer on the
front passenger seat. Its elec-
tronic field may cause the OCS to
switch to the "on" condition and
thus allow the passenger air bag
to deploy needlessly in a colli-
sion, increasing your repair
costs.
A smaller-stature adult in the
front passenger’ seat who is not
seated correctly (for example:
seat excessively reclined, leaning
on the door or center console, or
hips shifted forward in the seat)
can cause a condition where the
occupant classification system
senses less weight than if the
occupant were seated properly
(sitting upright with the seatback
in an upright position, centered
on the seat cushion with their
seat belt on, legs comfortably
extended and their feet on the
floor).
This condition can result in an
adult potentially being misclassi-
fied as a child and illumination of
the PASS AIR BAG "OFF" indica-
tor.
(Continued)
Accident statistics show that
children are safer if they are
restrained in the rear, as opposed
to the front seat. It is recom-
mended that child restraints be
secured in a rear seat, including
an infant riding in a rear-facing
infant seat, a child riding in a for-
ward-facing child seat and an
older child riding in a booster
seat.
Air bags can only be used once –
have an authorized HYUNDAI
dealer replace the air bag imme-
diately after deployment.
The occupant classification sys-
tem may not work properly if
water, coffee or any other liquid
including rain gets on the seat.
Keep the front seat dry at all
times.
(Continued)
If the PASS AIR BAG "OFF" indi-
cator is illuminated when the
front passenger's seat is occu-
pied by an adult and he/she sits
properly (sitting upright with the
seatback in an upright position,
centered on the seat cushion
with their seat belt on, legs com-
fortably extended and their feet
on the floor), have that person sit
in the rear seat.
Do not modify or replace the front
passenger seat. Don't place any-
thing on or attach anything such
as a blanket or seat heater to the
front passenger seat. This can
adversely affect the occupant
classification system.
Do not sit on sharp objects such
as tools when occupying the
front passenger seat. This can
adversely affect the occupant
classification system.
Do not use accessory seat cov-
ers on the front seats.
