SEAT BELTS PRECAUTIONS ON SEAT BELT USAGE If you are wearing your seat belt properly adjusted, and you are sitting upright and well back in your seat with both feet on the floor, your chances of being injured or killed in an accident and/or the severity of injury may be greatly reduced. INFINITI strongly encourages you and all of your passengers to buckle up every time you drive, even if your seating position includes a supplemental air bag. Most U.S. states and Canadian provinces or ter- SSS0678 SSS0677 ritories specify that seat belts be worn at all times when a vehicle is being driven.ARMREST (if so equipped) Trunk pass-throughRear armrest The rear center seatback can be folded to allow trunk access from inside of the vehicle.Pull the armrest forward until it is horizontal. To access the trunk, pull down the rear center armrest and pull out the trunk pass-through lid 1 . To lock the lid, use the mechanical key and turn it to the LOCK position 3 . To unlock, turn the mechanical key to the UNLOCK position 2 . For the mechanical key usage, see “KEYS” in the “3. Pre-driving checks and adjustments” section. Make sure that the mechanical key is removed from the trunk pass-through lid key cylinder before opening or closing the lid. Otherwise the lid and the rear armrest may be damaged.1-12 Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system
  • 33. WARNING ● Every person who drives or rides in this ve- hicle should use a seat belt at all times. Chil- dren should be properly restrained in the rear seat and, if appropriate, in a child restraint. ● The seat belt should be properly adjusted to a snug fit. Failure to do so may reduce the effectiveness of the entire restraint system and increase the chance or severity of injury in an accident. Serious injury or death can occur if the seat belt is not worn properly. SSS0136A ● Always route the shoulder belt over your shoulder and across your chest. Never run the belt behind your back, under your arm or across your neck. The belt should be away from your face and neck, but not falling off your shoulder. ● Position the lap belt as low and snug as possible AROUND THE HIPS, NOT THE WAIST. A lap belt worn too high could increase the risk of internal injuries in an accident. ● Be sure the seat belt tongue is securely fas- tened to the proper buckle. ● Do not wear the seat belt inside out or twisted. Doing so may reduce its effectiveness. SSS0134ASafety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system 1-13

  • 61. WARNING ● The supplemental front air bags ordinarily will not inflate in the event of a side impact, rear impact, rollover, or lower severity fron- tal collision. Always wear your seat belts to help reduce the risk or severity of injury in various kinds of accidents. ● The front passenger air bag will not inflate if the passenger air bag status light is lit or if the front passenger seat is unoccupied. See “Front passenger air bag and status light” later in this section. SSS0131B ● The seat belts and the supplemental front air bags are most effective when you are sitting well back and upright in the seat with both feet on the floor. The front air bags inflate with great force. Even with the INFINITI ad- vanced air bag system, if you are unre- strained, leaning forward, sitting sideways or out of position in any way, you are at greater risk of injury or death in a crash. You may also receive serious or fatal injuries from the supplemental front air bag if you are up against it when it inflates. Always sit back against the seatback and as far-away as practical from the steering wheel or in- strument panel. Always use the seat belts. SSS0132BSafety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system 1-41
  • 62. ● The driver and front passenger seat belt buckles are equipped with sensors that de- tect if the seat belts are fastened. The Ad- vanced Air Bag System monitors the severity of a collision and seat belt usage then in- flates the air bags. Failure to properly wear seat belts can increase the risk or severity of injury in an accident.● The front passenger seat is equipped with an occupant classification sensor (pattern sen- sor) that turns the front passenger air bag OFF under some conditions. This sensor is SSS0007 SSS0008 only used in this seat. Failure to be properly seated and wearing the seat belt can in- crease the risk or severity of injury in an accident. See “Front passenger air bag and status light” later in this section.● Keep hands on the outside of the steering wheel. Placing them inside the steering wheel rim could increase the risk of injury if the front air bag inflates. SSS0006 SSS00091-42 Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system
  • 63. WARNING ● Never let children ride unrestrained or ex- tend their hands or face out of the window. Do not attempt to hold them in your lap or arms. Some examples of dangerous riding positions are shown in the illustrations. ● Children may be severely injured or killed when the front air bags, side air bags or curtain air bags inflate if they are not prop- erly restrained. Pre-teens and children should be properly restrained in the rearSSS0099 seat, if possible. SSS0059A ● Even with the INFINITI Advanced Air Bag Sys- tem, never install a rear-facing child re- straint in the front seat. An inflating front air bag could seriously injure or kill your child. See “CHILD RESTRAINTS” earlier in this sec- tion for details.SSS0100 SSS0188A Safety — Seats, seat belts and supplemental restraint system 1-43
  • 64. ● The seat belts, side air bags and curtain air bags are most effective when you are sitting well back and upright in the seat. The side air bag and curtain air bag inflate with great force. Do not allow anyone to place their hand, leg or face near the side air bag on the side of the seatback of the front seat or near the side roof rails. Do not allow anyone sit- ting in the front seats or rear outboard seats to extend their hand out of the window or lean against the door. Some examples of dangerous riding positions are shown in the SSS0140 SSS0159 previous illustrations. WARNING ● When sitting in the rear seat, do not hold onto the seatback of the front seat.

Additionally, the front passenger air bag may be automatically turned OFF under some condi- tions, depending on the information provided by the occupant classification sensor. If the front passenger air bag is OFF, the passenger air bag status light will be illuminated (if the seat is unoccupied, the light will not be illumi- nated, but the air bag will be off).

  • 85. ZONE VARIATION CHANGE PROCEDURE The difference between magnetic north and geographical north is known as variance. In some areas, this difference can sometimes be great enough to cause false compass readings. Follow these instructions to set the variance for your particular location if this happens: 1. Push the switch for more than 3 seconds. The current zone number will appear in the display. 2. Find your current location and variance SIC0611B number on the zone map. 3. Push the switch repeatedly until the new zone number appears in the display, then release the switch. After you release the switch, the display will show a compass direction within a few seconds. ● If the compass deviates from the correct indication soon after repeated adjustment, have the compass checked at an INFINITI retailer. ● The compass may not indicate the correct compass point in tunnels or while driving up or down a steep hill.(The compass returns to the correct compass point when the vehicle moves to an area where the geomagnetism is stabilized.)Zone map Instruments and controls 2-9
  • 86. CAUTION● Do not install a ski rack, antenna, etc., which are attached to the vehicle by means of a magnet. They affect the operation of the compass.● When cleaning the mirror, use a paper towel or similar material dampened with glass cleaner. Do not spray glass cleaner directly on the mirror as it may cause the liquid cleaner to enter the mirror housing.2-10 Instruments and controls
