Chrysler 2006 Crossfire Automobile User Manual

If you do have a collision which deploys the airbags, any
or all of the following may occur:
The nylon airbag material may sometimes cause abra-
sions and/or skin reddening to the driver and passen-
ger as the airbags deploy and unfold. The abrasions
are similar to friction rope burns or those you might
get sliding along a carpet or gymnasium floor. They
are not caused by contact with chemicals. They are not
permanent and normally heal quickly. However, if you
haven’t healed significantly within a few days, or if
you have any blistering, see your doctor immediately.
As the airbags deflate, you may see some smoke-like
particles. The particles are a normal by-product of the
process that generates the nontoxic nitrogen gas used
for airbag inflation. These airborne particles may irri-
tate the skin, eyes, nose, or throat. If you have skin or
eye irritation, rinse the area with cool water. For nose
or throat irritation, move to fresh air. If the irritation
continues, see your doctor. If these particles settle on
your clothing, follow the garment manufacturer’s in-
structions for cleaning.
It is not advisable to drive your vehicle after the
airbags have been deployed. If you are involved in
another collision, the airbags will not be in place to
protect you.
How the Side Impact Airbag System Works
The side impact airbags are located in the doors above
the armrest.
Separate crash sensors in the vehicle determine if a
side impact is severe enough to require the airbag on
the side of the vehicle subjected to an impact. As with
the frontal system, the sensors are connected to the
diagnostic unit and the airbag/inflator units.
