To remove the child restraint, just unbuckle the vehicle’s
safety belt and let it go back all the way. The safety
belt will move freely again and be ready to work for an
adult or larger child passenger.
Turn on the passenger’s air bag when you remove the
child restraint from the vehicle unless the person
who will be sitting there is a member of a passenger air
bag risk group. See Air Bag Off Switch on page 1-46.
{CAUTION:
If the passenger’s air bag is turned off for a
person who isn’t in a risk group identified by
the national government, that person won’t
have the extra protection of an air bag. In a
crash, the air bag wouldn’t be able to inflate
and help protect the person sitting there.
Don’t turn off the passenger’s air bag unless
the person sitting there is in a risk group.
See “Air Bag Off Switch” in the Index for more
on this, including important safety information.
Air Bag System
This part explains the air bag system.
Your vehicle has air bags one air bag for the driver
and another air bag for the passenger.
Frontal air bags are designed to help reduce the risk of
injury from the force of an inflating air bag. But these
air bags must inflate very quickly to do their job
and comply with federal regulations.
Here are the most important things to know about the
air bag system:
{CAUTION:
You can be severely injured or killed in a crash
if you aren’t wearing your safety belt even if
you have air bags. Wearing your safety belt
during a crash helps reduce your chance of
hitting things inside the vehicle or being ejected
from it. Air bags are designed to work with
safety belts, but don’t replace them. Air bags
are designed to deploy only in moderate to
severe frontal and near frontal crashes.
