Passengers frontal airbag ON and OFF indicators


The front passengers frontal airbag ON and OFF indicators show you the status


The front passengers frontal airbag ON and OFF indicators show you the status of the front passengers SRS frontal airbag. The indicators are located next to the clock in the center portion of the dashboard.

When the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, both the ON and OFF indicators illuminate for 6 seconds during which time the system is checked. Following the system check, both indicators turn off for 2 seconds. After that, one of the indicators illuminates depending on the status of the front passengers SRS frontal airbag determined by the SUBARU advanced frontal airbag system monitoring.

If the front passengers SRS frontal airbag is activated, the passengers frontal airbag ON indicator will illuminate while the OFF indicator will remain off.

If the front passengers SRS frontal airbag is deactivated, the passengers frontal airbag ON indicator will remain off while the OFF indicator will illuminate.

With the ignition switch turned to the ON position, if both the ON and OFF indicators remain illuminated or off simultaneously even after the system check period, the system is malfunctioning. Contact your SUBARU dealer immediately for an inspection.
