indicator turns off even when the front passenger’s seat is occupied by an adult - SUBARU advanced frontal airbag system - SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System airbag) - Seat, seatbelt and SRS airbags - Subaru Forester Owner's ManualSubaru Forester: If the passenger’s frontal airbag OFF indicator illuminates and the ON indicator turns off even when the front passenger’s seat is occupied by an adult

This can be caused by the adult incorrectly sitting in the front passenger’s seat.

Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position. Ask the front passenger to set the seatback to the upright position, sit up straight in the center of the seat cushion, correctly fasten the seatbelt, position his/ her legs out forward, and adjust the seat to the rearmost position. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position. If the OFF indicator remains illuminated while the ON indicator remains off, take the following actions.

- Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position.

- Ensure that there are no articles, books, shoes, or other objects trapped under the seat, at the rear of the seat, or on the side of the seat.

- Ensure that the backward-forward position and seatback of front passenger’s seat are locked into place securely by moving the seat back and forth.

- Next, turn the ignition switch to the “ON” position and wait 6 seconds to allow the system to complete self-checking.

Following the system check, both indicators turn off for 2 seconds. Now, the ON indicator should illuminate while the OFF indicator remains off.

If the OFF indicator still remains illuminated while the ON indicator remains off, ask the occupant to move to the rear seat and immediately contact your SUBARU dealer for an inspection.
