Chevrolet Silverado: Passenger Sensing System / If the On Indicator Is Lit for a Child Restraint

Chevrolet Silverado 2019-2024 Owners Manual / Seats and Restraints / Airbag System / Passenger Sensing System / If the On Indicator Is Lit for a Child Restraint

The passenger sensing system is designed to turn off the front outboard passenger frontal airbag if the system determines that an infant is present in a child restraint. If a child restraint has been installed and the ON indicator is lit:

  1. Turn the vehicle off.
  2. Remove the child restraint from the vehicle.
  3. Remove any additional items from the seat such as blankets, cushions, seat covers, seat heaters, or seat massagers.
  4. Reinstall the child restraint following the directions provided by tahe child restraint manufacturer and refer to Securing Child Restraints (In the Center Front Seat) or Securing Child Restraints (With the Seat Belt in the Rear Seat) or Securing Child Restraints (With the Seat Belt in the Front Passenger Seat).

    Make sure the seat belt retractor is locked by pulling the shoulder belt all the way out of the retractor when installing the child restraint, even if the child restraint is equipped with a seat belt lock off. When the retractor lock is set, the belt can be tightened but not pulled out of the retractor.

  5. If, after reinstalling the child restraint and restarting the vehicle, the ON indicator is still lit, turn the vehicle off. Then slightly recline the vehicle seatback and adjust the seat cushion, if adjustable, to make sure that the vehicle seatback is not pushing the child restraint into the seat cushion. Also make sure the child restraint is not trapped under the vehicle head restraint. If this happens, adjust the head restraint. See Head Restraints.
  6. Restart the vehicle.

The passenger sensing system may or may not turn off the airbag for a child in a child restraint depending upon the child’s size. It is better to secure child restraints in the rear seat. Consider using another vehicle to transport the child when a rear seat is not available. Never put a rear-facing child restraint in the front seat, even if the ON indicator is not lit.
