The general information
All being in the car during movement people should be fastened seat belts.
Seat belts of forward seats are equipped automatic emergency натяжителями. The using order such belts is similar to an order of using belts of a usual design. More in detail the principle of functioning emergency натяжителей is considered more low in corresponding subsection.
Use of one seat belt for пристегивания more than one person is not supposed.
The lumbar section of a belt should settle down at level of hips, covering a coxofemoral joint sitting, as the strongest element of a skeleton of the person.
The humeral section of a belt should not be passed under the arm or be imposed on a neck of the sitting.
Watch, that the belt has not been overwound.
Remember that peak efficiency of action of a seat belt is reached in vertical position of a back of a seat. The excessive inclination of a back increases probability проскальзывания sitting at blow under a belt.
Seat belts have three анкерных the points one of which is equipped by the inertial returnable device with automatic blocking at jerks. Belts of this kind do not require adjustment of length.
At installation of a special children's seat it is necessary to translate a seat belt in a condition of constant blocking by full вытягивания it from the returnable device. Keeping it in the extended condition, fix it a children's seat, operating according to instructions of the manufacturer of the last. After защелкивания buckles a belt surplus of length of a belt will be winded on a drum of the returnable device and will be blocked, having provided reliable fixing of a children's seat.

On some models for the purpose of maintenance of additional protection of the driver/passenger forward seat belts are supplied by devices which at operation provide an automatic tension of belts that helps to exclude possibility of dangerous movings of the driver and the passenger in case of road and transport incident.
Operation automatic emergency натяжителей occurs at the directed overloads arising during a strong head-on collision. Emission of forward pillows of safety is simultaneously made.
At operation of the device the seat belt remains in the tense position until скоба its buckles will not be taken out from the lock of last.
Inclusion of a control lamp of systems of additional safety (SRS) warns the driver about possible malfunctions in devices automatic emergency натяжителей belts.
System of additional safety (SRS)
The scheme of an arrangement of typical components SRS
Into number of devices and the components forming system of additional safety (SRS) enter:
a) Two forward pillows of safety. The module of a driver's pillow of safety is placed in a steering wheel nave. The pillow of safety of the forward passenger is placed in a special cavity in the right part of the panel of devices of the car. The locations of both pillows are marked by precautionary inscriptions “SRS AIRBAG”;
b) the Gauges of the directed overloads working at strong front/lateral blow;
c) Electronic system of self-diagnostics which at the included ignition provides constant testing of gauges of overloads, the management block, газогенераторов pillows and connecting electroconducting corresponding цепе;
d) Devices of an automatic emergency tension of seat belts of forward seats (if are provided);
e) the Control lamp of refusals SRS, built in in the panel of devices;
f) the Spare independent power supply intended for duplication of the basic power supply system in case of its exit out of operation at collision of the car.
Principle of functioning of forward pillows of safety
The scheme of operation of forward pillows of safety
During collision the seat belt keeps from displacement the bottom part of a trunk sitting. Forward pillows of safety help to prevent травмирование the driver and the forward passenger as a result of blow by their head and a thorax about a steering wheel/panel of devices. Right after pillow operations are blown off, keeping the driver the adequate review.
As signals on operation of both pillows of safety arrive from the same gauges, both pillows work simultaneously. However, the probability инициации only is not excluded by one of pillows. Such becomes possible when the size of the directed overloads which have arisen at collision was on the verge of an operation range газогенераторов. In this case seat belts provide reliable enough protection of the driver and the forward passenger while the effect from operation of a pillow of safety will be minimum.
Right after operation and performance by pillows of the functions gas from them is issued that allows the driver to keep visibility and freely to manipulate all controls the car.
Full duration of process from the moment of giving of a signal before release of gas from pillows occupies with gauges of overloads fractions of a second. Operation of pillows occurs so quickly that the human ear simply is not capable to apprehend a clap газогенераторов at filling of pillows.
After road and transport incident at which there was an operation of pillows of safety, the volume of salon of the car looks slightly filled with smoke. Actually it is a suspension тонкодисперсного a powder by which covers of pillows in the combined condition are usually poured. People with disease of respiratory organs can feel certain discomfort from the gaseous products containing in air allocated газогенераторами of pillows.
Order of functioning of a control lamp of refusals SRS
Control lamp SRS is built in in an instrument guard of the car and intended for the prevention of the driver about revealed by system of self-diagnostics refusals in system of additional system of safety.
