Subaru Forester: SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System airbag) / Conditions in which front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag is not activated

The front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag will not be activated when any of the following conditions are met regarding the front passenger’s seat:

  • The seat is empty.
  • The seat is equipped with an appropriate child restraint system and an infant or a child is restrained in it. (See WARNING that follows.)
  • The front passenger’s occupant detection system is malfunctioning.

WARNING

NEVER INSTALL A CHILD SEAT IN THE FRONT SEAT EVEN IF THE FRONT PASSENGER’S SRS FRONTAL AIRBAG IS DEACTIVATED. Be sure to install it in the REAR seat in a correct manner. Also, it is strongly recommended that any forward facing child seat or booster seat be installed in the REAR seat, and that even children who have outgrown a child restraint system be also seated in the REAR seat. This is because children sitting in the front passenger’s seat may be killed or severely injured should the front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag deploy. REAR seats are the safest place for children.

CAUTION

When the front passenger’s seat is occupied by an infant in an appropriate child restraint system, observe the following precautions. Failure to do so may interfere with the proper operation of the occupant detection system, activating the front passenger’s SRS frontal airbag even though that seat is occupied by the infant in the child restraint system.

  • Do not place any article (including electronic devices) on the seat other than the infant in the child restraint system.
  • Do not place more than one infant in the child restraint system.
