Mercedes-Benz GLC : Status of the front passenger front airbag / Function of the automatic front passenger airbag shutoff

The automatic front passenger airbag shutoff is able to detect whether the front passenger seat is occupied by a person or a child restraint system. The front passenger airbag is enabled or disabled accordingly.

WARNING Risk of injury or death due to objects under the co-driver seat

Objects trapped under the co-driver seat can interfere with the function of the automatic co-driver airbag shutoff or damage the system.

When installing a child restraint system on the front passenger seat, always make sure of the following:

  • Ensure that the child restraint system is positioned correctly.
  • Always comply with the child restraint system manufacturer's installation instructions.
  • Never place objects (e.g. cushions) under or behind the child restraint system.
  • Fully retract the seat cushion length adjustment.
  • The entire base of the child restraint system must always rest on the sitting surface of the front passenger seat.
  • The backrest of the forward-facing child restraint system must, as far as possible, be resting on the seat backrest of the front passenger seat.
  • The child restraint system must not touch the roof or be put under strain by the head restraints. Adjust the seat backrest inclination and the head restraint setting accordingly.

WARNING Risk of injury or death due to objects between the seat surface and the child restraint system

Objects between the sitting surface and the child restraint system could affect the function of the automatic co-driver airbag shutoff.

A person on the front passenger seat must observe the following information:

  • Fasten seat belts correctly.
  • Sit in an almost upright seat position with their back against the seat backrest.
  • Sit with their feet resting on the floor, if possible.

The front passenger airbag may otherwise be disabled by mistake, for example, in the following situations:

  • The front passenger transfers their weight by supporting themselves on a vehicle armrest.
  • The front passenger sits in such a way that their weight is raised from the sitting surface.

WARNING Risk of injury or death due to a disabled front passenger airbag

The front passenger airbag is disabled when the PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF indicator lamp is lit.

A person in the front passenger seat could then, for example, come into contact with the vehicle interior, especially if the person is sitting too close to the cockpit.

If the front passenger seat is occupied, always ensure that:

  • The classification of the person in the front passenger seat is correct and the front passenger airbag is enabled or disabled in accordance with the person in the front passenger seat.
  • The front passenger seat has been moved as far back as possible.
  • The person is seated correctly.

Always observe the notes on the function of the PASSENGER AIR BAG indicator lamps.
