WARNING
Remember that with
the key fitted into the
ignition device and engine off,
the air bags may be triggered
on a stationary car if it is
bumped by another moving
car. Therefore, never seat chil-
dren on the front seat even
when the car is stationary. On
the other hand remember that
if the key is not fitted into the
ignition device, no safety sys-
tem (air bags or pretension-
ers) is triggered in the event
of an impact; in this case, fail-
ure to come into action cannot
be considered as a sign that
the system is not working
properly.

WARNING
When the key is fitted
into the ignition device,
the warning light F (with pas-
senger's front air bags deacti-
vation switch at ON) turns on
and flashes for few seconds to
remind that passenger's front
air bag, knees air bag and side
bag will be deployed in a crash,
after which it should go off.
WARNING
Never wash seat back-
rests with pressurised
water or steam (by hand or at
automatic seat washing sta-
tions).
WARNING
The front air bag is trig-
gered
for
greater in magnitude than the
pretensioners. For impacts be-
tween these two thresholds,
it is therefore normal that on-
ly the pretensioners are trig-
gered.
WARNING
Do not hook rigid ob-
jects to the coat hooks
and to the support handles.
WARNING
The air bag does not
substitute the seat
belts, but only increases their
effectiveness. Moreover, since
the front air bags do not come
into operation in the event of
front impact at low speed, side
collisions, bumps from behind
or overturning, in these cir-
cumstances
the
occupants
would only be protected by
the seat belts which must
therefore always be fastened.
