Front passengers SRS frontal airbag

The front passengers SRS frontal airbag uses a dual stage inflator. The inflator operates in different ways depending on the severity of impact.

The total load on the seat is monitored by the passengers occupant detection system weight sensor under the seat.

Using the total seat load and seatbelt buckle switch, the occupant detection system determines whether the front passengers SRS frontal airbag should or should not be inflated.

The occupant detection system may not inflate the front passengers SRS frontal airbag even when the drivers SRS frontal airbag deploys. This is normal.

Observe the following precautions. Failure to do so may prevent the SUBARU advanced frontal airbag system from functioning correctly or cause the system to fail.

● Do not apply any strong impact to the front passengers seat such as by kicking.

● Do not spill liquid on the front passengers seat. If liquid is spilled, wipe it off immediately.

● Do not remove or disassemble the front passengers seat.

● Do not install any accessory (such as an audio amplifier) other than a genuine SUBARU accessory under the front passengers seat.

● Do not place anything (shoes, umbrella, etc.) under the front passengers seat.

● The front passengers seat must not be used with the head restraint removed.

● Do not leave any articles on the front passengers seat or the seatbelt tongue and buckle engaged when you leave your vehicle.

● Do not place a magnet near the seatbelt buckle and the seatbelt retractor.

● Do not use front seats with their backward- forward position and seatback not being locked into place securely. If any of them are not locked securely, adjust them again. For adjusting procedure, refer to Manual seat F1-3 (models equipped with manual seats only).

If the seatbelt buckle switch and/or front passengers occupant detection system have failed, the SRS airbag system warning light will illuminate. Have the system inspected by your SUBARU dealer immediately if the SRS airbag system warning light illuminates.

If your vehicle has sustained impact, this may affect the proper function of the SUBARU advanced frontal airbag system. Have your vehicle inspected at your SUBARU dealer.

NOTE

The front passengers SRS side airbag, SRS curtain airbag and seatbelt pretensioner are not controlled by the SUBARU advanced frontal airbag system.
