Acura CL (2003 year). Instruction — page 4

The total time for inflation and
deflation is approximately one-tenth
of a second, so fast that most
occupants are not aware that the
airbags deployed until they see them
lying in their laps.

After a crash, you may see what
looks like smoke. This is actually
powder from the airbag’s surface.
Although the powder is not harmful,
people with respiratory problems
may experience some temporary
discomfort. If this occurs, get out of
the car as soon as it is safe to do so.

For additional information on how
your airbags work, see the booklet
titled

that came with your

owner’s manual.

Since both airbags use the same
sensors, both airbags normally
inflate at the same time. However, it
is possible for only one airbag to
inflate.

This can occur when the severity of
a collision is at the margin, or
threshold, that determines whether
or not the airbags will deploy. In
such cases, the seat belt will provide
sufficient protection, and the
supplemental protection offered by
the airbag would be minimal.

After inflating, the front airbags
immediately deflate, so they won’t
interfere with the driver’s visibility,
or the ability to steer or operate
other controls.

For additional information on how
your airbags work, ask your dealer
for a copy of the booklet titled

During a frontal crash, your seat
belts help restrain your lower body
and torso. Your airbag provides a
cushion to help restrain and protect
your head and chest.

To get the best protection from the
side airbags, front seat occupants
should wear their seat belts and sit
upright and well back in their seats.

Your car is equipped with side
airbags for the driver and a front
seat passenger. The airbags are
stored in the outer edges of the front
seat-backs, and both are marked
‘‘SIDE AIRBAG.’’

If you ever have a moderate to
severe side impact, the sensors will
detect rapid deceleration and signal
the control unit to instantly inflate
either the driver’s or the passenger’s
side airbag.

Only one airbag will deploy during a
side impact. If the impact is on the
passenger’s side, the passenger’s
side airbag will deploy even if there
is no passenger.

If the light comes on at any other
time, or does not come on at all, you
should have the system checked by
your dealer. For example:

If the SRS indicator light does not
come on after you turn the ignition
ON (II).

If the light stays on after the
engine starts.

If the light comes on or flashes on
and off while you drive.

The purpose of the SRS
indicator light is to alert

you to a potential problem with your
front airbags. This light will also
alert you to a potential problem with
your automatic seat belt tensioners
(page

); or your side airbags or

passenger’s side airbag automatic
cutoff system (page

).

When you turn the ignition ON (II),
this indicator will light briefly then
go out. This tells you that the system
is working properly.

If you see any of these indications,
your front or side airbags may not
deploy, your passenger’s side airbag
automatic cutoff system may not
work properly, or your seat belt
tensioners may not work when you
need them. See your Acura dealer as
soon as possible.

Ignoring the SRS indicator light
can result in serious injury or
death if the airbags, cutoff
system, or tensioners do not
work properly.

Have your vehicle checked by a
dealer as soon as possible if
the SRS light alerts you to a
potential problem.

This light alerts you that
the passenger’s side airbag

has been automatically shut off.

If a small-statured adult leans
sideways, or larger adult slouches
and leans sideways into the
deployment path of the side airbag,
the system may also shut off the side
airbag.

A front seat passenger should not
use a cushion or other object as a
backrest. It may prevent the cutoff
system from working properly.

When you turn the ignition ON (II),
the indicator should light briefly and
go out (see page

). If it doesn’t

light, stays on, or comes on while
driving without a passenger in the
front seat, have the system checked.

If the side airbag cutoff indicator
light comes on, you should have the
passenger sit upright. Once the
passenger is out of the deployment
path of the side airbag, the system
will turn the airbag back on and the
light will go out.

To reduce the risk of injury from an
inflating side airbag, your car has an
automatic cutoff system for the
passenger’s side airbag.

If does not mean there is a problem
with your side airbags. It means that
the side airbag cutoff system has
activated to prevent the side airbag
from deploying.

Although Acura does not encourage
children to ride in the front seat, this
system is designed to shut off the
side airbag if a child leans sideways
and the child’s head is in the side
airbag deployment path.

Your front and side airbag systems
are virtually maintenance-free, and
there are no parts you can safely
service. However, you must have
your car serviced if:

Take your car to an

authorized Acura dealer as soon as
possible. If you ignore this
indication, the airbags might not
inflate when you need them.

Together, airbags and

seat belts provide the best
protection.

Tampering could cause

the airbags to deploy, possibly
causing very serious injury.

See page

for further information

and precautions relating to your
airbags.

Improperly

replacing or covering front seat-
back covers can prevent your side
airbags from inflating during a
collision.

If rain or spilled water

soaks into a seat-back, it can
prevent the side airbag system
from working properly.

Any

airbag that has deployed must be
replaced along with the control
unit, automatic seat belt
tensioners and other related parts.
Do not try to remove or replace
any airbag by yourself. This must
be done by an Acura dealer or a
knowledgeable body shop.

High levels of carbon monoxide can
collect rapidly in enclosed areas,
such as a garage. Do not run the
engine with the garage door closed.
Even with the door open, run the
engine only long enough to move the
vehicle out of the garage.

If you must sit in your parked car,
even in an unconfined area, with the
engine running, adjust the climate
control system as follows:

Your car’s exhaust contains carbon
monoxide gas. You should have no
problem with carbon monoxide
entering the car in normal driving if
you maintain your car properly.
Have the exhaust system inspected
for leaks whenever:

The car is raised for an oil change.
You notice a change in the sound
of the exhaust.
The car was in an accident that
may have damaged the underside.

Select the Fresh Air mode.
Select the

mode.

Set the fan speed to high.
Set the temperature control to a
comfortable setting.

With the trunk lid open, air flow can
pull exhaust gas into your car’s
interior and create a hazardous
condition. If you must drive with the
trunk lid open, open all the windows
and set the climate control system as
shown below.

Carbon Monoxide Hazard

Carbon monoxide gas is toxic.
Breathing it can cause
unconsciousness and even kill
you.

Avoid any enclosed areas or
activities that expose you to
carbon monoxide.
