Chrysler 2005 Sebring Convertible Automobile User Manual

Relying on the airbags alone could lead to more
severe injuries in a collision. The airbags work
with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In
some collisions the airbags wont deploy at all.
Always wear your seat belts even though you
have airbags.
Being too close to the steering wheel or instru-
ment panel during airbag deployment could cause
serious injury. Airbags need room to inflate. Sit
back, comfortably extending your arms to reach
the steering wheel or instrument panel.
Airbag System Components
The front airbag system consists of the following:
Airbag Control Module
AIRBAG Readiness Light
Driver Airbag
Passenger Airbag
Steering Wheel and Column
Instrument Panel
Interconnecting Wiring
Knee Impact Bolsters
Driver and Front Passenger Seat Belt Pretensioners
How The Airbag System Works
The front airbag control module determines if a frontal
collision is severe enough to require the airbags to
inflate. The control module receives the level of crash
severity and determines the proper level of airbag to
be deployed. The frontal airbag inflators are designed
to provide two different rates of air bag inflation.
The airbag control module will not detect roll over or
rear collisions.
