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

When the ignition key is inserted and the up to oneyear old child is seated in the child restraint system on the passenger's seat, the indicator lamp "PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF" must be on.

If the "PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF" indicator lamp does not light up, it could indicate a fault in the system.

  • On vehicles without key-operated airbag deactivation device: Do not drive.
  • Have the fault remedied at your nearest authorized Porsche dealer.

The key switch for switching off the passenger's airbag in combination with the LATCH attachment bracket are not installed at the factory. They can be retrofitted.

  • Please see your authorized Porsche dealer.

Faults are indicated by a warning light in the instrument panel and a message on the on-board computer.

    – If the warning light does not light up when the ignition key is inserted or
    – If the warning light does not go out once the engine is running or
    – If the warning light appears while driving.
