Side Airbag Off Indicators

Side Airbag Off IndicatorSide Airbag Off Text IndicatorThese are Side Airbag Off Indicator symbols. The picture symbol is found in vehicles sold in Canada. It shows a man in a seat belt next to an oval airbag with an X through it. The text version is found in U.S. vehicles.

If this light comes on when there is not someone sitting in the passenger seat, have the airbag checked by your dealer. The only time the the airbag should be off is when sensors in the seat does not detect enough weight in the seat. The force of an airbag deployment can harm small adults and children, so the air bag is intended to remain off unless adequate weight is detected on the seat.
