Honda Civic Owners Manual: Advanced Airbags

The airbags have advanced features to help reduce the likelihood of airbag related injuries to smaller occupants.

Advanced Airbags

The driver’s advanced airbag system includes a seat position sensor.

Based on information from this sensor and the severity of the impact, the advanced airbag system determines the optimal deployment of the driver’s airbag.

Advanced Airbags

The front passenger’s advanced airbag system has weight sensors.

We advise against allowing a child under the age of 12 to ride in the front passenger’s seat.

However, if you do allow a child under 12 to ride in the front passenger’s seat, note that the system will automatically turn off the front passenger’s airbag if the sensors detect that the child is approximately 65 lbs (29 kg) or less.

Advanced Airbags

If there is a problem with the driver’s seat position sensor, the SRS indicator will come on and the airbag will inflate with full (normal) force, regardless of the driver’s seating position.
