• As soon as the child seat is no longer needed on the front passenger seat, enable the front passenger airbag again.

• Only deactivate the passenger airbag when the ignition is off, otherwise a fault may occur in the airbag system, this will create a danger that in case of an accident, the airbag does not deploy properly or does not deploy at all.

• When the passenger airbag is deactivated, if the warning lamp AIRBAG OFF is not continuously lit up when the front passenger airbag is disabled, there may be a fault in the airbag system: − Have the airbag system inspected immediately by a qualified workshop. − Do not use a child seat on the front passenger seat! The front passenger airbag could be triggered despite the fact that there is a fault in the system and, as a result, a child could sustain serious or fatal injuries.

− It is not certain whether the front passenger airbag will deploy during an accident! Inform your passengers of this.

• When using the ignition key to activate / deactivate the passenger frontal airbag, only the passenger frontal and side airbag will be activated / deactivated. The curtain airbag on the passenger side will remain active.
