Automatic Occupant Sensing System

  • Works with sensors in the front passenger seat to determine if the seat's front air bag1 should be turned on or off to prevent its inflation
  • The front passenger/child-presence detector is designed to turn off the front outboard passenger frontal air bag1 if the seat is unoccupied, a child is present or the front seat occupant takes his or her weight off the seat for a period of time
  • Illuminates a status light that indicates whether the air bag1 is on or off

1 Always use safety belts and child restraints. Children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate child restraint. See the Owner's Manual for more information.
