1Important Facts About Your Airbags  
Important Facts About Your Airbags  
Do not attempt to deactivate your airbags. Together,  
airbags and seat belts provide the best protection.  
Airbags can pose serious hazards. To do their job, airbags must inflate with  
tremendous force. So, while airbags help save lives, they can cause burns, bruises,  
and other minor injuries, sometimes even fatal ones if occupants are not wearing  
their seat belts properly and sitting correctly.  
When driving, keep hands and arms out of the  
deployment path of the front airbag by holding each  
side of the steering wheel. Do not cross an arm over  
the airbag cover.  
What you should do: Always wear your seat belt properly and sit upright and as  
far back from the steering wheel as possible while allowing full control of the  
vehicle. A front passenger should move their seat as far back from the dashboard as  
Remember, however, that no safety system can prevent all injuries or deaths that  
can occur in a severe crash, even when seat belts are properly worn and the airbags  
Do not place hard or sharp objects between yourself and a front airbag.  
Carrying hard or sharp objects on your lap, or driving with a pipe or other sharp  
object in your mouth, can result in injuries if your front airbag inflates.  
Do not attach or place objects on the front, driver's knee and front  
passenger's knee airbag covers. Objects on the covers marked SRS AIRBAG  
could interfere with the proper operation of the airbags or be propelled inside the  
vehicle and hurt someone if the airbags inflate.
