SRS Components and Functions

The SRS consists of the following components:


The SRS consists of the following components: 1. Front Impact Sensor
2. "PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF" Indicator (Front passenger's seat only) 3. SRS "AIR BAG" warning light 4. Knee Bolster
5. Passenger's Airbag Module 6. Driver's Airbag Module 7. SRS Control Module (SRSCM) 8. Occupant Classification System (Front passenger's seat only) 9. Driver's and Front Passenger's Seat Track Position Sensors (If Installed) B240B01NF 10. Driver's and Front Passenger's Seat Belt Buckle Sensors 11. Side Impact Sensor (If Installed) 12. Retractor Pre-tensioner Assemblies 13. Side Impact Airbag Module (If Installed) 14. Curtain Airbag Module (If Installed)

The SRSCM continually monitors all elements while the ignition is "ON" to determine if a frontal or near-frontal impact is severe enough to require airbag deployment or pre-tensioner seat belt deployment.

The SRS "AIR BAG" warning light on the instrument panel will illuminate for about 6 seconds after the ignition key is turned to the "ON" position or after the engine is started, after which the "AIR BAG" warning light should go out.

The airbag modules are located both in the center of the steering wheel and in


The airbag modules are located both in the center of the steering wheel and in the front passenger's panel above the glove box. When the SRSCM detects a sufficiently severe impact to the front of the vehicle, it will automatically deploy the front airbags.

Upon deployment, tear seams molded directly into the pad covers will separate


Upon deployment, tear seams molded directly into the pad covers will separate under pressure from the expansion of the airbags. Further opening of the covers then allows full inflation of the airbags.

A fully inflated airbag, in combination with a properly worn seat belt, slows


A fully inflated airbag, in combination with a properly worn seat belt, slows the driver's or the passenger's forward motion, reducing the risk of head and chest injury. After complete inflation, the airbag immediately starts deflating, enabling the driver to maintain forward visibility and the ability to steer or operate other controls.'

CAUTION:


CAUTION:

o Do not install or place any accessories (drink holder, cassette holder, sticker, etc.) on the front passenger's panel above the glove box in a vehicle with a passenger's airbag. Such objects may become dangerous projectiles and cause injury if the passenger's airbag inflates.

o When installing a container of liquid air freshener inside the vehicle, do not place it near the instrument cluster nor on the instrument panel surface. If there is any leakage from the air freshener onto these areas (instrument cluster, instrument panel or air ventilator), it may damage these parts. If the liquid from the air freshener does leak onto these areas, wash them with water immediately.

WARNING:


WARNING:

o If an airbag deploys, there may be a loud noise followed by a fine dust released in the vehicle. These conditions are normal and are not hazardous - the airbags are packed in this fine powder. The dust generated during airbag deployment may cause skin or eye irritation as well as aggravate asthma for some persons. Always wash all exposed skin areas thoroughly with lukewarm water and a mild soap after an accident in which the airbags were deployed.

o The SRS can function only when the ignition key is in the "ON" position. If the SRS "AIR BAG" warning light does not illuminate, or continuously remains on after illuminating for about 6 seconds when the ignition key is turned to the "ON" position, or after the engine is started, comes on while driving, the SRS is not working properly. If this occurs, have your vehicle immediately inspected by your Hyundai dealer.

WARNING:

o Before you replace a fuse or disconnect a battery terminal, turn the ignition key to the "LOCK" position and remove the ignition key. Never remove or replace the airbag related fuse(s) when the ignition key is in the "ON" position. Failure to heed this warning will cause the SRS "AIR BAG" warning light to illuminate.

Occupant classification system


Occupant classification system

Your vehicle is equipped with an occupant classification system in the front passenger's seat.

The occupant classification system creates a field which is designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated front passenger and determine if the passenger's front air bag should be enabled (may inflate) or not. The driver's front air bag is not affected or controlled by the occupant classification system.
