Risk of serious personal injury or death due to the passenger airbag triggering unintentionally.

When the ignition is on and the child less than one year old is seated in the child restraint system on the passenger seat the indicator light PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF must be illuminated.

If the PASSENGER AIR BAG OFF indicator light does not light up, it could indicate a fault in the system, and the airbag could inflate in a collision, placing the child at risk of death or severe injury from the inflating airbag.

In this case:

  • Fasten the child restraint system on the rear seat.
  • Have the fault remedied at your nearest authorized Porsche dealer.

Detecting faults

Faults are indicated by the red airbag warning light on the tachometer.

  • In the following cases you should immediately consult an authorized Porsche dealer in order to assure the airbag system is functioning properly:
  1. If the warning light does not light up when the ignition is switched on or
  2. If the warning light does not go out once the engine is running or
  3. If the warning light appears while driving.

Further information on the airbag system can be found on stickers attached to the sun visors, as well as on all airbag components.

For special recommendations on the use of child restraints:

  1. Please see chapter "Child Restraint Systems (Child Seats)" on page 90.
