1.7.2. Safety airbag


If your car is in addition equipped with the safety airbag, then it can be recognized by the inscription "SRS-AIRBAG". On a steering wheel and a control bulb of "SRS" on the control panel.

The airbag of safety (1) is behind a steering wheel and is connected with the clasped seat belts and a natyagivatel of belts, providing the best protection to the driver.

Functioning (availability for service) of system of support of the airbag of safety is shown means of a control bulb of "SRS" (3) on the control panel. If the key in the lock of steering is in situation 1 or 2, the control bulb burns about 4 seconds. If it does not burn, does not die away, flickers or during a trip was lit, then there are some violations. The system of support of "SRS" thereby does not work. We suggest to visit in this case immediately service, i.e. there is a danger of refusal of "SRS" at accident.

The airbag of safety is arranged so that it works only at severe accidents. The driver has to be surely fastened, otherwise "pillow" in this case will not protect him.

At minor frontal accidents, at a revolution, at side or back crashes or at other accidents at which no powerful forces in front influence the system of the airbag of safety does not work. At the same time the driver and all other passengers have usual protection in the form of seat belts.

At operation of the SRS system there is a small cloudlet of smoke. This smoke is not noxious to health and does not lead to the fire.

The expiration date of "pillow" is pasted on a door from the driver. At its expiration it is necessary to visit service.
