To deactivate the airbag: with the vehicle stationary and the ignition switched off, push and turn lock 1 to the OFF position.

When the ignition is switched on, it is essential to check that the warning light ¹ is illuminated on the display 2.

This light remains permanently lit to let you know that you can fit a child seat.

The passenger airbag may only be activated or deactivated when the vehicle is stationary with the ignition off.

If it is interfered with when the vehicle is being driven, indicator lights å and © will come on.

Switch the ignition off then on again to reset the airbag in accordance with the lock position.
