Chevrolet Silverado: Passenger Sensing System / If the Off Indicator Is Lit for an Adult-Sized Occupant

Chevrolet Silverado 2019-2024 Owners Manual / Seats and Restraints / Airbag System / Passenger Sensing System / If the Off Indicator Is Lit for an Adult-Sized Occupant

If a person of adult size is sitting in the front outboard passenger seat, but the OFF indicator is lit, it could be because that person is not sitting properly in the seat or that the child restraint locking feature is engaged. Use the following steps to allow the system to detect that person and enable the front outboard passenger frontal airbag:

  1. Turn the vehicle off.
  2. Remove any additional material from the seat, such as blankets, cushions, seat covers, seat heaters, or seat massagers.
  3. Place the seatback in the fully upright position.
  4. Have the person sit upright in the seat, centered on the seat cushion, with legs comfortably extended.
  5. If the shoulder portion of the belt is pulled out all the way, the child restraint locking feature will be engaged. This may unintentionally cause the passenger sensing system to turn the airbag off for some adult-sized occupants. If this happens, unbuckle the belt, let the belt go back all the way, and then buckle the belt again without pulling the belt out all the way.
  6. Restart the vehicle and have the person remain in this position for two to three minutes after the ON indicator is lit.

Warning

If the front outboard passenger airbag is turned off for an adult-sized occupant, the airbag will not be able to inflate and help protect that person in a crash, resulting in an increased risk of serious injury or even death. An adult-sized occupant should not ride in the front outboard passenger seat, if the passenger airbag OFF indicator is lit.
