WARNING

  • The passenger's front air bag can be turned on or off by using Settings menu. Always check the status of the PASSENGER AIR BAG menu and Front passenger air bag ON/OFF indicator.
  • The driver is responsible for the proper position of the PASSENGER AIR BAG menu.
  • Never install a rearward facing child seat on the front passenger's seat unless the passenger's front air bag has been deactivated. The infant or child could be severely injured or killed by an air bag deployment in case of an accident.
  • Even though your vehicle is equipped with the PASSENGER AIR BAG menu, do not install a child restraint system in the front passenger's seat. A child restraint system must never be placed in the front seat. Children who are too large for child restraint systems should always occupy the rear seat and use the available lap/shoulder belts. In the event of an accident, children are afforded the most safety when they are restrained by a proper restraint system in the rear seat.
  • As soon as the child seat is no longer needed on the front passenger's seat, reactivate the front passenger's air bag.
  • Never place or insert any object into any small opening near side airbag labels attached to the vehicle seats.

    When the air bag deploys, the object may affect the deployment and result in unexpected accident or bodily harm.

  • No objects (such as crash pad cover, cellular phone holder, cup holder, perfume or stickers) should be placed over or near the air bag modules on the steering wheel, instrument cluster, windshield glass, and the front passenger's panel above the glove box.

    Such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a crash severe enough to cause the air bags to deploy. Do not place any objects over the air bag or between the air bag and yourself.
