Child Restraint in Passenger Seat

The use of a child restraint system in the passenger seat can result in serious personal injury or death to the child from an airbag deployment.

To reduce risk of injury from an inflating airbag in an accident, Porsche strongly recommends:

  • Please see the chapter "PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF INDICATOR LAMP DOES NOT LIGHT UP" on page 38.
  • Please see the chapter "CHILD RESTRAINT SYSTEMS" on page 40.
  • Do not install a child restraint system in the Sports bucket seat.
    The Sports bucket seat cannot be equipped with the LATCH system.

Child restraint system for up to one-year old children
– Make sure that the PASSENGER AIRBAG OFF indicator lamp lights up.
– Adjust the passenger's seat as far away from the airbag as possible.



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

When the ignition is on and the up to one-year old child is seated in the child restraint system on the passenger 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, and the air bag could inflate in a collision, placing the child at risk of death or severe injury from the inflating air bag.

In this case:

  • Do not use a child restraint system on the passenger's seat.
  • On vehicles with key-operated airbag deactivation device: Switch to position OFF.
  • On vehicles without key-operated airbag deactivation device: Do not drive.
  • Have the fault remedied at your nearest authorized Porsche dealer.

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.
