Subaru Forester: In case of emergency / If your vehicle is involved in an accident

CAUTION

If your vehicle is involved in an accident, be sure to inspect the ground under the vehicle before restarting the engine. If you find that fuel has leaked on the ground, do not try to restart the engine. The fuel system has been damaged and is in need of repair. Immediately contact the nearest automotive service facility. We recommend that you consult your SUBARU dealer.

Your vehicle has a fuel pump shut off system. When the vehicle sustains an impact in an accident, etc., the fuel pump shut off system stops supplying the fuel in order to minimize fuel leakage. However, depending on the impact conditions at the time of collision, the fuel pump shut-off system may not operate. Perform the following procedures to restart the engine after the system is activated.

Models without “keyless access with push-button start system”:

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” or “ACC” position.
  2. Restart the engine.

Models with “keyless access with push-button start system”:

  1. Turn the push-button ignition switch to the “ACC” or “OFF” position.
  2. Restart the engine.

Automatic door locking/unlocking operation when involved in an accident

When the automatic door locking/unlocking function is ON, all the doors will be locked automatically while driving. For further details, refer to “Automatic door locking/unlocking”.

When the vehicle sustains a strong impact which may trigger the airbags to deploy, the door locks may be unlocked automatically to enable emergency escape. Generally, an impact sustained from a rear end collision does not trigger the airbags to deploy. However if the impact is strong enough to deploy the airbags, it can also trigger the unlocking function.

Under such circumstance, the automatic door unlocking function will be suspended and the doors will remain unlocked.

Confirm the safety of the surroundings first and carry out the following to retrieve the automatic door locking/unlocking function.

Models without “keyless access with push-button start system”:

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

Models with “keyless access with push-button start system”:

  1. Turn the push-button ignition switch to the “OFF” position.
  2. Turn the push-button ignition switch to the “ON” position.

NOTE

Depending on the severity of the impact, the emergency unlocking may not function.

CAUTION

If the following occur, there may be a malfunction in the system.

Have the system inspected by a SUBARU dealer.

  • The doors unlock automatically while driving.
  • With all doors shut, the doors unlock when pressing the lock side of the power door locking switch.
  • The automatic door locking/unlocking function does not operate.
