Subaru Forester: SRS side airbag and SRS curtain airbag / Operation

The SRS side airbag and SRS curtain airbag can function only when the ignition switch is in the “ON” position.

The following airbags deploy independently of each other since each has its own impact sensor.

  • Driver’s SRS side airbag
  • Front passenger’s SRS side airbag
  • SRS curtain airbag (right-hand side)
  • SRS curtain airbag (left-hand side)

Therefore, they may not both deploy in the same accident. Also, the SRS side airbag and SRS curtain airbag deploys independently of the driver’s and front passenger’s SRS frontal airbags in the steering wheel and instrument panel.

For the locations of the sensors and control modules, refer to “Components”.
