Airbag System Indicators  
If a problem occurs in the airbag system, the SRS indicator will come on and a  
message appears on the driver information interface.  
1Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Indicator  
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Indicator  
When the power mode is set to ON  
Ignoring the SRS indicator can result in  
serious injury or death if the airbag systems  
or tensioners do not work properly.  
The indicator comes on for a few seconds,  
then goes off. This tells you the system is  
working properly.  
Have your vehicle checked by a dealer as  
soon as possible if the SRS indicator alerts  
you to a possible problem.  
If the indicator comes on at any other time, or does not come on at all, have the  
system checked by a dealer as soon as possible. If you don't, your airbags and seat  
belt tensioners may not work properly when they are needed.

Passenger Airbag Off Indicator  
To ensure the passenger is detected properly, confirm  
The occupant is sitting in an upright position,  
wearing the seat belt properly and the seat-back is  
not excessively reclined.  
The occupant is not leaning against the door or  
center console.  
The occupant’s feet are placed on the floor in front  
of them.  
When the passenger airbag off  
indicator comes on  
The indicator comes on to alert you that the  
passenger’s airbag has been turned off.  
This occurs if the seat is empty or when the  
weight sensors determine that a small child or  
infant is on the passenger seat.  
There are no objects hanging from the front  
passenger’s seat.  
Only small, lightweight objects are in the seat-back  
Children age 12 or under should always ride properly restrained in a back seat.  
2 Child Safety P. 73  
No liquid has been spilled on or under the seat.  
There is no child seat or other object pressing  
against the rear of the seat or seat-back.  
There is no rear passenger pushing or pulling on  
the back of the front passenger’s seat.  
There are no objects placed under or beside the  
front passenger’s seat. Improperly positioned  
objects can interfere with the advanced airbag  
If the indicator is on, in the event of a crash the passenger’s airbag will not deploy.  
The passenger's knee airbag will not deploy, either.  
The floor mat behind the front passenger's seat is  
set in the correct position evenly on the floor. An  
improperly placed mat can interfere with the  
advanced airbag sensors.  
The head restraint is not contacting the roof.

1Passenger Airbag Off Indicator  
The passenger airbag off indicator may come on and  
go off periodically if the total weight on the seat is  
near the airbag cutoff threshold. For a small adult,  
depending on physique and posture, the system may  
not recognize him/her as an adult and thus deactivate  
the passenger’s airbag.  
If this occurs, please confirm that the conditions set  
forth in the above bullet points on the previous page  
are met.  
If the above conditions are met and the indicator is  
still on, then with the transmission in park, turn the  
ignition off and back on.  
Have your vehicle checked by a dealer as soon as  
possible if:  
All of the above conditions are met, and the  
indicator comes on with an adult seated in the  
front passenger seat.  
The seat is empty and the indicator is off.  
Do not allow an adult passenger to ride in the front  
seat when the indicator is on.
