Your vehicle is equipped with drivers and front passengers pre-tensioner seat

Your vehicle is equipped with drivers and front passengers pre-tensioner seat belts. The purpose of the pre-tensioner is to make sure that the seat belts fit tightly against the occupants body in certain frontal collisions.

The pre-tensioner seat belts can be activated alone or, together with the airbags, where the frontal collision is severe enough.

The pre-tensioner seat belt operates in the same way as an Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) type of seat belt. When the vehicle stops suddenly, or if the occupant tries to lean forward too quickly, the seat belt retractor will lock into position. However, in certain frontal collisions, the pretensioner will activate and pull the seat belt into tighter contact against the occupants body.

The seat belt pre-tensioner system consists mainly of the following components. Their locations are shown in the illustration.

1. SRS airbag warning light.
2. Seatbelt pre-tensioner assembly.
3. SRS control module.
