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 ride in a rear seat.

WARNING

The warning lamp indicates a potential fault with the vehicle's restraint system. A fault with the restraint system could result in serious injury or death in the event of a severe 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.

The instrument panel displays the air bag warning lamp. The warning lamp illuminates as a bulb check when the ignition is switched on. See AIR BAG (AMBER).

If any of the following warning lamp conditions occur, the vehicle should be checked by a retailer/authorized repairer immediately:

  • The warning lamp fails to illuminate when the ignition is switched on.

  • The warning lamp fails to extinguish within 6 seconds of the ignition being switched on.

  • The warning lamp illuminates at any time other than the bulb check, when the ignition is on.

  • Air bag warning lamp.

  • Rotary coupler.

  • Air bag modules.

  • Front and third row seat belt pre-tensioners.
