The front passengers SRS frontal airbag will not be activated when any of the following conditions are met regarding the front passengers seat:
- The seat is empty.

- The seat is equipped with a rearward facing child restraint system and an infant is restrained with it. (See WARNING that follows.).

- The seat is equipped with a forward facing child restraint system and a small child is restrained with it. (See WARNING that follows.).

- The seat is equipped with a booster seat and a small child is in the booster seat. (See WARNING that follows.).

- The seat is relieved of the occupant load for a time exceeding the predetermined monitoring time period.

NEVER INSTALL A REARWARD FACING

NEVER INSTALL A REARWARD FACING CHILD SEAT IN THE FRONT PASSENGERS SEAT EVEN IF THE FRONT PASSENGERS SRS FRONTAL AIRBAG IS DEACTIVATED. Be sure to install it in the REAR seat in a correct manner. Also, it is strongly recommended that any forward facing child seat or booster seat be installed in the REAR seat, and that even children who have outgrown a child restraint system be also seated in the REAR seat. This is because children sitting in the front passengers seat may be killed or severely injured should the front passengers SRS frontal airbag deploy.

REAR seats are the safest place for children.

When the front passengers seat is occupied by a child, observe the following precautions. Failure to do so may increase the load on the front passengers seat, activating the front passengers SRS frontal airbag even though that seat is occupied by a child.

- Do not place any article on the seat other than the child occupant and a child restraint system.

- Do not place more than one child on the seat.

- Do not install any accessory such as a table or TV onto the seatback.

- Do not store a heavy load in the seatback pocket.

- Do not allow the rear seat occupant to place his/her hands or legs on the front passengers seatback, or allow him/her to pull the seatback.
