    OCCUPANT RESTRAINTSSome of the most important safety features in your

    vehicle are the restraint systems. These include the front

    airbags for both the driver and front passenger, and side

    a irba gs (if e qu ip p e d ) fo r b oth th e d riv er a n d fron t

    adu lt-sized belts, your seat belts can also be u sed to hold

    infant and child restraint systems.

    NOTE: The front airbags h ave a multistage inflator

    design. This allows the airbag to have different rates of

    inflation that are based on collision severity.

    Infants in rear facing child restraints should NEVER ride

    in the front seat of a vehicle with a passenger airbag. An

    airbag deployment could cause severe injury or death to

    infants in that position.

    WARNING!

    Relying on the airbags alone could lead to more

    severe injuries in a collision. The airbags w ork

    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 haveairbags.

    Being too close to the steering w heel or instrument

    panel during airbag deployment could cause seri-

    ous injury. Airbags need room to inflate. Sit back,

    comfortably extending your arms to reach the

    steering wheel or instrument panel.

    If the vehicle h as side airbags, they also ne ed room

    to infl ate. Do not lean against the d oor. Sit uprightin the center of the seat.

    How the Airbag System Works

    The Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) Module d e-

    termines if a frontal or side collision is severe enough

    to require the front and/ or side airbags to inflate. The

    front airbag inflators are d esigned to p rovide d ifferent

    rates of airbag inflation from direction provided by the

    ORC.

    The ORC also m onitors the readiness of the electronic

    parts of the system whenever the ignition switch is in

    the START or ON positions. These include all of the

    items listed above except the knee bolster, the instru-ment panel, and the steering wheel and column. If the

    key is in the LOCK position, in the ACC position, or

    not in the ignition, the airbags are not on and will not

    inflate.

    Also, the ORC tu rn

  • 8/6/2019 16358515 Jeep JK 2009 Wrangler Owners Manual

    56/495

    The Driver and Passenger Airbag/Inflator Units are

    located in the center of the steering wheel and the right

    side of the instrument panel. When the ORC detects a

    collision requiring the airbags, it signals the inflator

    un its. A large quantity of n on-toxic gas is generated to

    inflate the front airbags. Different airba g inflation rates

    are possible, based on collision severity. The steeringwheel hub trim cover and the upper right side of the

    instrument panel separate and fold out of the way as

    the bags inflate to their full size. The bags fully inflate

    in about 50 to 70 milliseconds. This is about half of the

    time it takes to blink your eyes. The bags then quickly

    deflate while helping to restrain the driver and front

    passenger.

    The driver front airbag gas is vented through the ventholes in the sides of the airbag. The passenger front

    airbag gas is vented through the vent holes in the sides

    of the airbag. In this way, the airbags do not interfere

    with your control of the vehicle.

    The Side Impact (SRS) Seat-

    (If Equipped) are designed to

    side collisions.

    Everyone in your vehicle needs to be buckled up at all

    times, including babies and children. Every state in the

    United States and all Canadian provinces require that

    small children rid e in p roper restraint systems. This is the

    law, and you can be prosecuted for ignoring it.

    Children 12 years and und er should ride properly buck-

    led up in a rear seat, if available. According to crash

    statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in

    the rear seats, rather than in the front.

    There are different sizes and types of restraints for

    children from newborn size to the child almost large

    enough for an adult safety belt. Always check the child

    seat owners manual to ensure you have the correct seat

    for your child. Use the restraint that is correct for your

    child.

    restraint:

    Before buying any restraint system, make sure that it

    has a label certifying that it meets all applicable Safety

    Standards. The manufacturer also recommends that

    you try a child restraint in the vehicle seats wh ere you

    will use it before you buy it.

    The restraint must be appropriate for your childs

    weight an d height. Check the label on the restraint for

    weight and height limits.

    Carefully follow the instructions that come with the

    restraint. If you install the restraint improp erly, it m ay

    not work when you need it.

    The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are

    equipped with either an Automatic Locking Retractor

    (ALR) or a cinching latch plate or both. Both types of
