This can be caused by the adult incorrectly sitting in the front passengers seat. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position. Ask the front passenger to set the seatback to the upright position, sit up straight in the center of the seat cushion, correctly fasten the seatbelt, position his/ her legs out forward, and adjust the seat to the rearmost position. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the OFF indicator remains illuminated while the ON indicator remains off, take the following actions.

● Ensure that there is no article, book, shoe, or other object trapped under the seat, at the rear of the seat, or on the side of the seat.

● Ensure that the backward-forward position and seatback of front passengers seat are locked into place securely by moving the seat back and forth. (Models equipped with manual seats only)
● Next, turn the ignition switch to the ON position and wait 6 seconds to allow the system to complete self-checking. Following the system check, both indicators turn off for 2 seconds. Now, the ON indicator should illuminate while the OFF indicator remains off.

If the OFF indicator still remains illuminated while the ON indicator remains off, ask the occupant to move to the rear seat and immediately contact your SUBARU dealer for an inspection.
