Child restraint system for children older than one year
Your vehicle is equipped with a weight sensing system for the passenger's seat in accordance with U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208. Depending on the weight acting on the passenger's seat, the passenger's airbag will automatically be switched on or off.
Small adult passengers
Some smaller adults may not turn off the PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF indicator lamp. If the lamp is lit when an adult occupies the seat, they should reposition their body properly, centered in the seat with feet on the floor and not leaning on adjacent body parts. If the lamp still does not turn off, the person should move to a rear seat for better protection, and the vehicle should be taken to a authorized Porsche dealer for evaluation.
When the ignition key is inserted and the small adult passenger is seated on the passenger's seat, the indicator lamp "PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF" must be off.
If the "PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF" indicator lamp lights up, it could indicate a fault in the system.
In this case:
Automatic locking retractor
The safety belts for the front passenger and rear seats are equipped with an automatic locking retractor for securing the child restraint system.
When activated, this retractor allows you to securely fasten the child restraint system in place so that inadvertent movements will not occur.
Child Seat in Front
The use of a child restraint system on the front passenger seat can result in serious personal injury or death to the child from an air bag deployment.
To reduce risk of injury from an inflating airbag in an accident, Porsche strongly recommends:
Before transporting a child on the passenger's seat:
Adjusting Childseat After Fastening
Moving the seat could pull the safety belt against the child restraint, applying increased pressure to the seat, and cause the "PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF" indicator lamp to go off and activate the airbag system.
Activating the automatic locking retractor
Releasing the safety belt
