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

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK”/ “OFF” position.
  2. 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.
  3. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position.

If the OFF indicator remains illuminated while the ON indicator remains off, take the following actions.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK”/ “OFF” position.
  2. Make sure that the front passenger does not use a blanket, seat cushion, seat cover, seat heater or massager, etc.
  3. If wearing excessive layers of clothing, the front passenger should remove any unnecessary items before sitting in the front passenger’s seat, or should sit in a rear seat.
  4. 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.
