Subaru Outback (BR): Conditions in which front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag is activated

The front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag will be activated for deployment upon impact when any of the following conditions is met regarding the front passenger’s seat.

● When the seat is occupied by an adult.

● When a heavy article is placed on the seat.

When the front passenger’s seat is occupied by an adult, observe the following precautions. Failure to do so may lessen the load on the front passenger’s seat, deactivating the front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag despite the fact that the seat is occupied by an adult.

● Do not allow the rear seat occupant to lift the front passenger’s seat cushion using his/her feet.

● Do not place any article under the front passenger’s seat, or squeeze any article from behind and under the seat. This may lift the seat cushion.

● Do not squeeze any article between the front passenger’s seat and side trim/ pillar, door or center console box. This may lift the seat cushion.

If the passenger’s frontal airbag OFF indicator illuminates and the ON indicator turns off even when the front passenger’s seat is occupied by an adult

This can be caused by the adult incorrectly sitting in the front passenger’s 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.

● Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position.

● 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 passenger’s 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.
