1.9. Safety airbag
On the car the additional system of passive safety which is turning on the safety airbag is installed.
The airbag of safety serves in order that prevent receiving by the driver of an injury of the face and head in case of head-on collision.
The airbag of safety cannot replace seat belts; be always fastened by seat belts.
Be always fastened by a seat belt even if on the car the safety airbag is installed.
The seat belt holds the driver in the correct situation at disclosure of the airbag of safety.
The seat belt reduces risk of getting injured in case of a turning of the car, side crash or blow behind, and also in case of easy head-on collision as the airbag of safety does not reveal in these situations.
The seat belt reduces risk to be thrown out from the car in case of accident.
Correctly settle down on a seat even if on the car the safety airbag is installed.
The airbag of safety is filled with air very quickly and with very big force.
If you sit incorrectly, the airbag of safety can not protect you properly and put a trauma when opening.
Before a trip take away a seat as it is possible further back, but so that it did not prevent driving.
Having reliably fastened by a seat belt, you sit directly, having leaned the elbows on a seatback.
Do not bend forward.
As the safety airbag works
Safety airbag components
1. Safety airbag module
2. Left forward sensor of collision
3. Right forward sensor of collision
4. Diagnostics block
The system of the airbag of safety includes the following elements:
– collision sensors;
– diagnostics block;
– alarm bulb;
– safety airbag module;
– connecting wires.
The airbag of safety is located in the center of a steering wheel.
The airbag of safety reveals only in case of strong head-on collision.
The airbag of safety does not reveal in case of a turning of the car, side crash or blow behind, and also in case of head-on collision at a small speed.
When sensors of collision define that there was a head-on collision of sufficient force, they close a chain therefore materials in the filling block light up and nitrogen which fills the safety airbag is produced.
The airbag of safety goes down very quickly after operation therefore it will not close a view of the road.
Disclosure of the airbag of safety happens to very loud sound and emission of smoke and ashes, however it is not dangerous and does not demonstrate ignition in the car. Sharp disclosure of a safety cushion can cause temporary discomfort. The airbag of safety can not reveal in case of some head-on collisions even if the car will be strongly damaged.
It does not demonstrate that the airbag of safety was faulty, rather it means that there was not enough force of collision for its activation.
Do not paste and do not establish any objects, such as emblems or stickers on the surface of the airbag of safety. It can put to the driver a trauma at disclosure of the airbag of safety.
Do not install any devices before a windshield. It can interfere with disclosure of the airbag of safety and put somebody a trauma.
After disclosure of the airbag of safety some elements of its system will be hot. Do not touch them.
The airbag of safety is calculated that it will reveal only once. After that she will not be fit for further use. The airbag needs to be replaced as soon as possible and to provide the car to experts for check.
