The supplemental air bag system is designed to inflate in higher severity frontal collisions, although it may inflate if the forces in another type of collision are similar to those of a higher severity frontal impact. It may not inflate in certain frontal collisions. Vehicle damage (or lack of it) is not always an indication of proper supplemental air bag system operation. The front passenger supplemental air bag is equipped with an ON/OFF switch (except crew cab models which have a rear seat for child restraint installation). Because no rear seat exists where a rear facing child restraint can be secured in other models, the switch is designed to turn OFF the passenger supple- mental air bag so that a rear facing child restraint can be used in the front passenger seat.

  21. 21. PASSENGER SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAG ON/OFF SWITCH AND LIGHT (except Crew Cab models) WARNING Air bags and seat belts are designed to work as a unit. Do not switch the air bag OFF unless you meet federal govern- ment criteria. Switching off the air bag may increase the risk of serious or fatal injuries in a collision where the air bag would have inflated. In rare instances, some passengers are exposed to serious injury risks from inflating air bags, especially if not properly re- strained. The U.S. and Canadian federal governments recognize other limited circum- stances in which an air bag could reduce safety. The passenger air bag ON/OFF switch is, therefore, allowed in models with- out full rear seats. Because the overall ben- efits of air bags are great, in most situations air bags should not be switched off unless special government criteria exist. The passenger air bag ON/OFF switch is WRS0111 located in the center of the instrument panel, near the ashtray. It can be used toSeats, restraints and supplemental air bag systems 1-13 ੬੭
