Operating Vehicle with Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) Warning Light Illuminated
1999 and Prior Passenger Cars and Light Duty Trucks with SDM Controlled Air Bag System
The AIR BAG warning light is the key to driver notification of Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system malfunctions. When the warning light remains illuminated or continues to flash, one or more of the following conditions may occur if vehicle operation is continued.
^ Non-deployment of the air bags in the event of a crash.
^ Deployment of the air bags without a crash.
^ Deployment of the air bags in crashes less severe than intended.
If an AIR BAG warning light is illuminated or flashing, you should advise the customer of these possibilities and that the vehicle should be serviced right away.
