Manual Description Always keep the curtain air bag modules free to deploy in the event of a side collision or roll-over accident. Each front door has a side crash sensor as a component of the supplemental restraint system. It also includes installing extra electrical equipment on or near system components or wiring.
The pretensioners operate differently depending on what types of air bags are equipped. The inflation mechanism for the front passenger air bag is the same as the driver's air bag. Only one side curtain air bag will deploy on the side of the vehicle that receives the force of an impact.
Refer to the following table for the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light illumination conditions. The air bag/front seat belt pretensioner system warning light flashes and the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light illuminates if the sensors have a possible malfunction. The curtain air bag is ready for inflating regardless of what the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light on/off condition chart indicates.
