If the airbag is off, the off indicator in the passenger
airbag status indicator will come on and stay on when
the vehicle is started.
If a child restraint has been installed and on indicator is
lit, see ?If the On Indicator is Lit for a Child Restraint?
under Passenger Sensing System on page 1-70
for more information.
To remove the child restraint, unbuckle the vehicle
safety belt and let it return to the stowed position.
Airbag System
The vehicle has the following airbags:
? A frontal airbag for the driver.
? A frontal airbag for the right front passenger
Your vehicle may also have the following airbags:
? A roof-rail airbag for the driver and the passenger
seated directly behind the driver.
? A roof-rail airbag for the right front passenger and
the passenger seated directly behind the right
front passenger.
All of the airbags in your vehicle will have the word
AIRBAG embossed in the trim or on an attached label
near the deployment opening.
For frontal airbags, the word AIRBAG will appear on the
middle part of the steering wheel for the driver and
on the instrument panel for the right front passenger.
With roof-rail airbags, the word AIRBAG will appear
along the headliner or trim.
Airbags are designed to supplement the protection
provided by safety belts. Even though today?s airbags
are also designed to help reduce the risk of injury
from the force of an in?ating bag, all airbags must in?ate
very quickly to do their job.
