that you familiarize yourself with all disclosures,
warnings, cautions and instructions concerning
proper use of such accessories prior to operat-
ing the vehicle and/or accessory. See a NISSAN

WARNING
.Do not ride in a moving vehicle
when the seatback is reclined. This
can be dangerous. The shoulder belt
will not be against your body. In an
accident, you could be thrown into it
and receive neck or other serious
injuries. You could also slide under
the lap belt and receive serious
internal injuries.
.For the most effective protection
when the vehicle is in motion, the
seat should be upright. Always sit
well back in the seat with both feet
on the floor and adjust the seat
properly. See “Precautions on seat
belt usage” later in this section.
.After adjustment, gently rock in the
seat to make sure it is securely
locked.
.Do not leave children unattended
inside the vehicle. They could un-
knowingly activate switches or con-
trols. Unattended children could
become involved in serious acci-
dents.
.The seatback should not be reclined
any more than needed for comfort.
Seat belts are most effective when
the passenger sits well back and
straight up in the seat. If the seat-
back is reclined, the risk of sliding
under the lap belt and being injured
is increased.
CAUTION
When adjusting the seat positions, be
sure not to contact any moving parts to
avoid possible injuries and/or da-
mages.

HEAD RESTRAINTS
GUID-5E605952-D804-4293-B401-616CD7C38955
WARNING
Head restraints supplement the other
vehicle safety systems. They may pro-
vide additional protection against injury
in certain rear end collisions. Adjust the
head restraints properly, as specified in
this section. Check the adjustment after
someone else uses the seat. Do not
attach anything to the head restraint
stalks or remove the head restraint. Do
not use the seat if the head restraint
has been removed. If the head restraint
was removed, install and properly ad-
just the head restraint before an occu-
pant uses the seating position. Failure
to follow these instructions can reduce
the effectiveness of the head restraints.
This may increase the risk of serious
injury or death in a collision.

Front-seat Active Head Restraint
GUID-3164FE3F-22C1-4D05-B110-75CFEC562928
The Active Head Restraint moves forward
utilizing the force that the seatback receives
from the occupant in a rear-end collision. The
movement of the head restraint helps support
the occupant’s head by reducing its backward
movement and helping absorb some of the
forces that may lead to whiplash-type injuries.
Active Head Restraints are effective for colli-
sions at low to medium speeds in which it is said
that whiplash injury occurs most.
Active Head Restraints operate only in certain
rear-end collisions. After the collision, the head
restraints return to their original position.
Adjust the Active Head Restraints properly as
described earlier in this section.

PRECAUTIONS ON SEAT BELT
USAGE GUID-0C8D3A44-10AF-48A1-A8CC-9A495B9121D7
If you are wearing your seat belt properly
adjusted, and you are sitting upright and well
back in your seat with both feet on the floor, your
chances of being injured or killed in an accident
and/or the severity of injury may be greatly
reduced. NISSAN strongly encourages you and
all of your passengers to buckle up every time
you drive, even if your seating position includes a
supplemental air bag.
Most U.S. states and Canadian provinces
or territories specify that seat belts be
worn at all times when a vehicle is being
driven.

WARNING
.Every person who drives or rides in
this vehicle should use a seat belt at
all times. Children should be prop-
erly restrained in the rear seat and,
if appropriate, in a child restraint.
.The seat belt should be properly
adjusted to a snug fit. Failure to do
so may reduce the effectiveness of
the entire restraint system and in-
crease the chance or severity of
injury in an accident. Serious injury
or death can occur if the seat belt is
not worn properly.
.Always route the shoulder belt over
your shoulder and across your
chest. Never put the belt behind
your back, under your arm or across
your neck. The belt should be away
from your face and neck, but not
falling off your shoulder.
.Position the lap belt as low and
snug as possible AROUND THE
HIPS, NOT THE WAIST. A lap belt
worn too high could increase the
risk of internal injuries in an acci-
dent.
.Be sure the seat belt tongue is
securely fastened to the proper
buckle.
.Do not wear the seat belt inside out
or twisted. Doing so may reduce its
effectiveness.
.Do not allow more than one person
to use the same seat belt.
.Never carry more people in the
vehicle than there are seat belts.
.If the seat belt warning light glows
continuously while the ignition is
pushed to the ON position with all
doors closed and all seat belts
fastened, it may indicate a malfunc-
tion in the system. Have the system
checked by a NISSAN dealer.
.No changes should be made to the
seat belt system. For example, do
not modify the seat belt, add mate-
rial, or install devices that may
change the seat belt routing or
tension. Doing so may affect the
operation of the seat belt system.
Modifying or tampering with the

THREE-POINT TYPE SEAT BELT
GUID-F9647E3B-7CCB-4333-9D53-DBFEBA7433EC
WARNING
.Every person who drives or rides in
this vehicle should use a seat belt at
all times.
.Do not ride in a moving vehicle
when the seatback is reclined. This
can be dangerous. The shoulder belt
will not be against your body. In an
accident, you could be thrown into it
and receive neck or other serious
injuries. You could also slide under
the lap belt and receive serious
internal injuries.
.For the most effective protection
when the vehicle is in motion, the
seat should be upright. Always sit
well back in the seat with both feet
on the floor and adjust the seat belt
properly.
.Do not allow children to play with
the seat belts. Most seating posi-
tions are equipped with Automatic
Locking Retractor (ALR) mode seat
belts. If the seat belt becomes
wrapped around a child’s neck with
the ALR mode activated, the child
can be seriously injured or killed if
the seat belt retracts and becomes
tight. This can occur even if the
vehicle is parked. Unbuckle the seat
belt to release the child. For the
center of the rear seat, the connec-
tor tongue may also be released.
Release the connector tongue by
inserting a suitable tool (such as a
key) into the connector buckle. If the
seat belt can not be unbuckled or is
already unbuckled, release the child
by cutting the seat belt with a
suitable tool (such as a knife or
scissors) to release the seat belt.

mended for cleaning upholstery or carpets.
Then wipe with a cloth and allow the seat
belts to dry in the shade. Do not allow the
seat belts to retract until they are completely
dry.
.If dirt builds up in the shoulder belt
guide of the seat belt anchors, the seat
belts may retract slowly. Wipe the shoulder
belt guide with a clean, dry cloth.
.Periodically check to see that the seat
belt and the metal components, such as
buckles, tongues, retractors, flexible wires
and anchors, work properly. If loose parts,
deterioration, cuts or other damage on the
webbing is found, the entire seat belt
assembly should be replaced.
GUID-26D16DBE-9A0E-4759-945D-C9D751725375
WARNING
Do not allow children to play with the
seat belts. Most seating positions are
equipped with Automatic Locking Re-
tractor (ALR) mode seat belts. If the
seat belt becomes wrapped around a
child’s neck with the ALR mode acti-
vated, the child can be seriously injured
or killed if the seat belt retracts and
becomes tight. This can occur even if
the vehicle is parked. Unbuckle the seat
belt to release the child. For the center
of the rear seat, the connector tongue
may also be released. Release the
connector tongue by inserting a suita-
ble tool (such as a key) into the
connector buckle. If the seat belt can
not be unbuckled or is already un-
buckled, release the child by cutting
the seat belt with a suitable tool (such
as a knife or scissors) to release the
seat belt.
Children need adults to help protect them.
They need to be properly restrained.

many other sources, including doctors, teachers,
government traffic safety offices, and community
organizations. Every child is different, so be sure
to learn the best way to transport your child.
There are three basic types of child restraint
systems:
.Rear-facing child restraint
.Forward-facing child restraint
.Booster seat
The proper restraint depends on the child’s size.
Generally, infants up to about 1 year and less
than 20 lbs (9 kg) should be placed in rear-
facing child restraints. Forward-facing child
restraints are available for children who outgrow
rear-facing child restraints and are at least 1
year old. Booster seats are used to help position
a vehicle lap/shoulder belt on a child who can no
longer use a forward-facing child restraint.
WARNING
Infants and children need special pro-
tection. The vehicle’s seat belts may not
fit them properly. The shoulder belt may
come too close to the face or neck. The
lap belt may not fit over their small hip
bones. In an accident, an improperly
fitting seat belt could cause serious or
fatal injury. Always use appropriate
child restraints.
All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or
territories require the use of approved child
restraints for infants and small children. See
“Child restraints” later in this section.
A child restraint may be secured in the vehicle
by using either the LATCH (Lower Anchor and
Tethers for CHildren) system or with the vehicle
seat belt. See “Child restraints” later in this
section for more information.
NISSAN recommends that all pre-teens
and children be restrained in the rear seat.
Studies show that children are safer when
properly restrained in the rear seat than in
the front seat.
This is especially important because your
vehicle has a supplemental restraint sys-
tem (Air bag system) for the front passen-
ger. See “Supplemental restraint system”
later in this section.
INFANTS GUID-0FA535EA-6323-4DB9-92F9-8B508130A6AC
Infants up to at least 1 year old should be placed
in a rear-facing child restraint. NISSAN recom-
mends that infants be placed in child restraints
that comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standards or Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety
Standards. You should choose a child restraint
that fits your vehicle and always follow the
manufacturer’s instructions for installation and
use.
SMALL CHILDREN
GUID-927D047A-9A7C-4FEB-90C0-65CE234F2245
Children that are over 1 year old and weigh at
least 20 lbs (9 kg) should remain in a rear-facing
child restraint as long as possible up to the
height or weight limit of the child restraint.
Children who outgrow the height or weight limit
of the rear-facing child restraint and are at least
1 year old should be secured in a forward-facing
child restraint with a harness. Refer to the
manufacturer’s instructions for minimum and
maximum weight and height recommendations.
NISSAN recommends that small children be
placed in child restraints that comply with
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or
Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. You
should choose a child restraint that fits your
vehicle and always follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for installation and use.
LARGER CHILDREN
GUID-EC196FE5-D487-4C51-9056-7FA7FF17ACB0
Children should remain in a forward-facing child
restraint with a harness until they reach the
maximum height or weight limit allowed by the

placed in a commercially available booster seat
to obtain proper seat belt fit. For a seat belt to fit
properly, the booster seat should raise the child
so that the shoulder belt is properly positioned
across the chest and the top, middle portion of
the shoulder. The shoulder belt should not cross
the neck or face and should not fall off the
shoulder. The lap belt should lie snugly across
the lower hips or upper thighs, not the abdomen.
A booster seat can only be used in seating
positions that have a three-point type seat belt.
The booster seat should fit the vehicle seat and
have a label certifying that it complies with
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or
Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
Once the child has grown so the shoulder belt
is no longer on or near the face and neck, and
the lap belt can be positioned properly across
the lower hips or upper thighs, use the seat belt
without the booster seat.
WARNING
Never let a child stand or kneel on any
seat and do not allow a child in the
cargo area. The child could be seriously
injured or killed in a sudden stop or
collision.

NISSAN recommends that all
child restraints be installed in
the rear seat. Studies show that
children are safer when properly
restrained in the rear seat than
in the front seat. If you must
install a forward-facing child
restraint in the front seat, see
“Forward-facing child restraint
installation using the seat belts”
later in this section.
Even with the NISSAN Advanced
Air Bag System, never install a
rear-facing child restraint in the
front seat. An inflating air bag
could seriously injure or kill a
child. A rear-facing child re-
straint must only be used in the
rear seat.
Be sure to purchase a child
restraint that will fit the child
and vehicle. Some child re-
straints may not fit properly in
your vehicle.
Child restraint anchor points are
designed to withstand loads
from child restraints that are
properly fitted.
— Never use the anchor points for
adult seat belts or harnesses.
A child restraint with a top tether
strap should not be used in the
front passenger seat.
— Keep seatbacks as upright as
possible after fitting the child
restraint.
— Infants and children should al-
ways be placed in an appropri-
ate child restraint while in the
vehicle.
.When the child restraint is not in
use, keep it secured with the LATCH
system or a seat belt. In a sudden
stop or collision, loose objects can
injure occupants or damage the
vehicle.
CAUTION
A child restraint in a closed vehicle can
become very hot. Check the seating
surface and buckles before placing a
child in the child restraint.
This vehicle is equipped with a universal child
restraint anchor system, referred to as the
LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHil-
dren) system. Some child restraints include rigid
or webbing-mounted attachments that can be
connected to these anchors.
For details, see “LATCH Lower Anchors Sys-
tem” later in this section.
LATCH child restraints generally require the use
of a top tether strap. If your vehicle does not
have top tether anchor locations, do not install a
child restraint in your vehicle that requires the
use of a top tether strap.
If you do not have a LATCH compatible child
restraint, the vehicle seat belts can be used.
Several manufacturers offer child restraints for
infants and small children of various sizes. When
selecting any child restraint, keep the following
points in mind:
.Choose only a restraint with a label certifying
that it complies with Federal Motor Vehicle
Safety Standard 213 or Canadian Motor
Vehicle Safety Standard 213.
.Check the child restraint in your vehicle to
be sure it is compatible with the vehicle’s
seat and seat belt system.

Precautions on booster seats
GUID-469816AF-C7E6-4180-AFB1-93AE88597A78
WARNING
If a booster seat and seat belt are not
used properly, the risk of a child being
injured in a sudden stop or collision
greatly increases:
.Make sure the shoulder portion of
the belt is away from the child’s face
and neck and the lap portion of the
belt does not cross the stomach.
.Make sure the shoulder belt is not
behind the child or under the child’s
arm.
.A booster seat must only be in-
stalled in a seating position that has
a lap/shoulder belt.
LRS0455
Booster seats of various sizes are offered by
several manufacturers. When selecting any
booster seat, keep the following points in mind:
.Choose only a booster seat with a label
certifying that it complies with Federal Motor
Vehicle Safety Standard 213 or Canadian
Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.
.Check the booster seat in your vehicle to be
sure it is compatible with the vehicle’s seat
and seat belt system.
Condition:
Black plate (65,1)
[ Edit: 2012/ 7/ 31 Model: Z51-D ]
LRS0453
.Make sure the child’s head will be properly
supported by the booster seat or vehicle
seat. The seatback must be at or above the
center of the child’s ears. For example, if a
low back booster seat *1is chosen, the
vehicle seatback must be at or above the
center of the child’s ears. If the seatback is
lower than the center of the child’s ears, a
high back booster seat *2should be used.
.If the booster seat is compatible with your
vehicle, place your child in the booster seat
and check the various adjustments to be
sure the booster seat is compatible with
your child. Always follow all recommended
procedures.
LRS0464
All U.S. states and Canadian provinces or
territories require that infants and small
children be restrained in an approved child
restraint at all times while the vehicle is
being operated.
The instructions in this section apply to booster
seat installation in the rear seats or the front

.Seat belt pretensioner
Supplemental front-impact air bag system:
The NISSAN Advanced Air Bag System can
help cushion the impact force to the head and
chest of the driver and front passenger in certain
frontal collisions.
Front seat-mounted side-impact supple-
mental air bag system: This system can help
cushion the impact force to the chest area of the
driver and front passenger in certain side impact
collisions. The side air bags are designed to
inflate on the side where the vehicle is impacted.
Roof-mounted curtain side-impact and
rollover supplemental air bag system (for
Hardtop models): This system can help
cushion the impact force to the head of
occupants in front and rear outboard seating
positions in certain side impact or rollover
collisions. In a side impact, the curtain and
rollover air bags are designed to inflate on the
side where the vehicle is impacted. In a rollover,
the curtain and rollover air bags on both sides
are designed to inflate. Under both side-impact
and rollover situations, the curtain air bags will
remain inflated for a short period of time.
Door-mounted curtain side-impact and
rollover supplemental air bag system (for
CrossCabriolet models): This system can
help cushion the impact force to the heads of
the driver and front passenger in certain side-
impact or rollover collisions. In a side impact, the
curtain and rollover air bags are designed to
inflate on the side where the vehicle is impacted.
In a rollover, the curtain and rollover air bags on
both sides are designed to inflate. Under both
side-impact and rollover situations, the curtain
air bags will remain inflated for a short period of
time.

WARNING
.The front air bags ordinarily will not
inflate in the event of a side impact,
rear impact, rollover, or lower se-
verity frontal collision. Always wear
your seat belts to help reduce the
risk or severity of injury in various
kinds of accidents.
.The front passenger air bag will not
inflate if the passenger air bag
status light is lit or if the front
passenger seat is unoccupied. See
“Front passenger air bag and status
light” later in this section.
.The seat belts and the front air bags
are most effective when you are
sitting well back and upright in the
seat with both feet on the floor. The
front air bags inflate with great
force. Even with the NISSAN Ad-
vanced Air Bag System, if you are
unrestrained, leaning forward, sit-
ting sideways or out of position in
any way, you are at greater risk of
injury or death in a crash. You may
also receive serious or fatal injuries
from the front air bag if you are up
against it when it inflates. Always sit
back against the seatback and as
far-away as practical from the steer-
ing wheel or instrument panel. Al-
ways use the seat belts.
.The driver and front passenger seat
belt buckles are equipped with
sensors that detect if the seat belts
are fastened. The Advanced Air Bag
System monitors the severity of a
collision and seat belt usage then
inflates the air bags as needed.
Failure to properly wear seat belts
can increase the risk or severity of
injury in an accident.
.The front passenger seat is
equipped with an occupant classifi-
cation sensor (pattern sensor) that
turns the front passenger air bag
OFF under some conditions. This
sensor is only used in this seat.
Failure to be properly seated and
wearing the seat belt can increase
the risk or severity of injury in an
accident. See “Front passenger air
bag and status light” later in this
section.
.Keep hands on the outside of the
steering wheel. Placing them inside
the steering wheel rim could in-
crease the risk that they are injured
if the front air bag inflates.

.The seat belts and air bags are most
effective when you are sitting well
back and upright in the seat with
both feet on the floor. The air bags
inflate with great force. Do not allow
anyone to place their hand, leg or
face near the side air bag on the
side of the seatback of the front
seat, near the side roof rails (Hard-
top models), or near the top of the
door finisher (CrossCabriolet mod-
els). Do not allow anyone sitting in
the front seats or rear outboard
seats to extend their hand out of
the window or lean against the
door. Some examples of dangerous
riding positions are shown in the
previous illustrations.
.When sitting in the rear seat, do not
hold onto the seatback of the front
seat. If the side air bag inflates, you
may be seriously injured. Be espe-
cially careful with children, who
should always be properly re-
strained. Some examples of danger-
ous riding positions are shown in
the illustrations.
.Do not use seat covers on the front
seatbacks. They may interfere with
side air bag inflation.

This vehicle is equipped with the NISSAN
Advanced Air Bag System for the driver and
front passenger seats. This system is designed
to meet certification requirements under U.S.
regulations. It is also permitted in Canada.
However, all of the information, cautions
and warnings in this manual still apply and
must be followed.
The driver supplemental front-impact air bag is
located in the center of the steering wheel; the
passenger supplemental front-impact air bag is
mounted in the instrument panel above the glove
box. The front air bags are designed to inflate in
higher severity frontal collisions, although they
may inflate if the forces in another type of
collision are similar to those of a higher severity
frontal impact. They may not inflate in certain
frontal collisions. Vehicle damage (or lack of it) is
not always an indication of proper front air bag
operation.
The NISSAN Advanced Air Bag System has
dual stage air bag inflators. The system monitors
information from the crash zone sensor, satellite
sensor, Air bag Control Unit (ACU), seat belt
buckle sensors and occupant classification
sensor (pattern sensor). Inflator operation is
based on the severity of a collision and seat belt
usage for the driver. For the front passenger, the
occupant classification sensor is also monitored.
Based on information from the sensors, only one
Condition:
Black plate (75,1)
[ Edit: 2012/ 7/ 31 Model: Z51-D ]
front air bag may inflate in a crash, depending on
the crash severity and whether the front
occupants are belted or unbelted. Additionally,
the front passenger air bag may be automatically
turned OFF under some conditions, depending
on the information provided by the occupant
classification sensor. If the front passenger air
bag is OFF, the passenger air bag status light
will be illuminated (if the seat is unoccupied, the
light will not be illuminated, but the air bag will
be off). (See “Front passenger air bag and
status light” later in this section for further
details.) One front air bag inflating does not
indicate improper performance of the system.
If you have any questions about your air bag
system, contact NISSAN or a NISSAN dealer. If
you are considering modification of your vehicle
due to a disability, you may also contact
NISSAN. Contact information is contained in
the front of this Owner’s Manual.
When a front air bag inflates, a fairly loud noise
may be heard, followed by release of smoke.
This smoke is not harmful and does not indicate
a fire. Care should be taken not to inhale it, as it
may cause irritation and choking. Those with a
history of a breathing condition should get fresh
air promptly.
Front air bags, along with the use of seat belts,
help to cushion the impact force on the head
and chest of the front occupants. They can help
save lives and reduce serious injuries. However,
an inflating front air bag may cause facial
abrasions or other injuries. Front air bags do
not provide restraint to the lower body.
Even with NISSAN Advanced Air Bags, seat
belts should be correctly worn and the driver
and passenger seated upright as far as practical
away from the steering wheel or instrument
panel. The front air bags inflate quickly in order
to help protect the front occupants. Because of
this, the force of the front air bag inflating can
increase the risk of injury if the occupant is too
close to, or is against, the air bag module during
inflation.
The front air bags will deflate quickly after a
collision.
The front air bags operate only when the
ignition switch is in the ON position.
After pushing the ignition switch to the ON
position, the supplemental air bag warning
light illuminates. The supplemental air bag
warning light will turn off after about 7
seconds if the system is operational.

The front passenger air bag status light is
located on the instrument panel below the air
conditioner controls. After the ignition switch is
placed in the ON position, the front passenger
air bag status light illuminates for about 7
seconds and then turns off or illuminates
depending on the front passenger seat occu-
pied status. The light operates as follows:
.Unoccupied passenger seat: The
light is OFF and the front passenger air
bag is OFF and will not inflate in a crash.
.Passenger’s seat occupied by a small adult,
child or child restraint as outlined in this
section: The light illuminates to
indicate that the front passenger air bag is
OFF and will not inflate in a crash.

tional.
Front passenger air bag:
GUID-D73A39BF-43C8-459F-9C24-47B7F579C407
The front passenger air bag is designed to
automatically turn OFF when the vehicle is
operated under some conditions as described
below as permitted by U.S. regulations. If the
front passenger air bag is OFF, it will not inflate
in a crash. The driver air bag and other air bags
in your vehicle are not part of this system.
The purpose of the regulation is to help reduce
the risk of injury or death from an inflating air bag
to certain front passenger seat occupants, such
as children, by requiring the air bag to be
automatically turned OFF.
The occupant classification sensor (pattern
sensor) is in the front passenger seat cushion
and is designed to detect an occupant and
objects on the seat. For example, if a child is in
the front passenger seat, the Advanced Air Bag
System is designed to turn the passenger air
bag OFF in accordance with the regulations.
Also, if a child restraint of the type specified in
the regulations is on the seat, the occupant
classification sensor can detect it and cause the
air bag to turn OFF.
Front passenger seat adult occupants who are
properly seated and using the seat belt as
outlined in this manual should not cause the
passenger air bag to be automatically turned
OFF. For small adults it may be turned OFF,
however, if the occupant does not sit in the seat
properly (for example, by not sitting upright, by
sitting on an edge of the seat, or by otherwise
being out of position), this could cause the
sensor to turn the air bag OFF. Always be sure
to be seated and wearing the seat belt properly
for the most effective protection by the seat belt
and supplemental air bag.
NISSAN recommends that pre-teens and chil-
dren be properly restrained in a rear seat.
NISSAN also recommends that appropriate
child restraints and booster seats be properly
installed in a rear seat. If this is not possible, the
occupant classification sensor is designed to
operate as described above to turn the front
passenger air bag OFF for specified child
restraints. Failing to properly secure child
restrains and to use the Automatic Locking
Retractor (ALR) mode (child restraint mode)
may allow the restraint to tip or move in an
accident or sudden stop. This can also result in
the passenger air bag inflating in a crash instead
of being OFF. (See “Child restraints” earlier in
this section for proper use and installation.)
If the front passenger seat is not occupied, the
passenger air bag is designed not to inflate in a
crash. However, heavy objects placed on the
seat could result in air bag inflation, because of
the object being detected by the occupant
classification sensor. Other conditions could
also result in air bag inflation, such as if a child is
standing on the seat, or if two children are on the
seat, contrary to the instructions in this manual.
Always be sure that you and all vehicle
Condition:
Black plate (77,1)
[ Edit: 2012/ 7/ 31 Model: Z51-D ]
occupants are seated and restrained properly.
Using the passenger air bag status light, you can
monitor when the front passenger air bag is
automatically turned OFF with the seat occu-
pied. The light will not illuminate when the front
passenger seat is unoccupied.
If an adult occupant is in the seat but the
passenger air bag status light is illuminated
(indicating that the air bag is OFF), it could be
that the person is a small adult, or is not sitting
on the seat properly.
If a child restraint must be used in the front seat,
the passenger air bag status light may or may
not be illuminated, depending on the size of the
child and the type of child restraint being used. If
the air bag status light is not illuminated
(indicating that the air bag might inflate in a
crash), it could be that the child restraint or seat
belt is not being used properly. Make sure that
the child restraint is installed properly, the seat
belt is used properly and the occupant is
positioned properly. If the air bag status light is
not illuminated, reposition the occupant or child
restraint in a rear seat.
If the passenger air bag status light will not
illuminate even though you believe that the child
restraint, the seat belts and the occupant are
properly positioned, the system may be sensing
an unoccupied seat (in which case the air bag is
OFF). Your NISSAN dealer can check that the
system is OFF by using a special tool. However,
until you have confirmed with your dealer that
your air bag is working properly, reposition the
occupant or child restraint in a rear seat.
The air bag system and passenger air bag status
light will take a few seconds to register a change
in the passenger seat status. However, if the
seat becomes unoccupied, the air bag status
light will remain off.
If a malfunction occurs in the front passenger air
bag system, the supplemental air bag warning
light , located in the meter and gauges area,
will blink. Have the system checked by a
NISSAN dealer.

WARNING
.Do not place any objects on the
steering wheel pad or on the instru-
ment panel. Also, do not place any
objects between any occupant and
the steering wheel or instrument
panel. Such objects may become
dangerous projectiles and cause
injury if the front air bags inflate.
.Do not place objects with sharp
edges on the seat. Also, do not
place heavy objects on the seat that
will leave permanent impressions in
the seat. Such objects can damage
the seat or occupant classification
sensor (pattern sensor). This can
affect the operation of the air bag
system and result in serious perso-
nal injury.
.Do not use water or acidic cleaners
(hot steam cleaners) on the seat.
This can damage the seat or occu-
pant classification sensor. This can
also affect the operation of the air
bag system and result in serious
personal injury.
.Immediately after inflation, several
front air bag system components
will be hot. Do not touch them; you
may severely burn yourself.
.No unauthorized changes should be
made to any components or wiring
of the supplemental air bag system.
This is to prevent accidental infla-
tion of the supplemental air bag or
damage to the supplemental air bag
system.

The side air bags are located in the outside of
the seatback of the front seats. The curtain air
bags are located in the side roof rails (Hardtop
models) or upper side of the door trim (Cross-
Cabriolet models). These systems are designed
to meet voluntary guidelines to help reduce the
risk of injury to out-of-position occupants.
However, all of the information, cautions
and warnings in this manual still apply and
must be followed. The side air bags and
curtain and rollover air bags are designed to
inflate in higher severity side collisions, although
they may inflate if the forces in another type of
collision are similar to those of a higher severity
side impact. They are designed to inflate on the
side where the vehicle is impacted. They may
not inflate in certain side collisions. Curtain and
rollover air bags are also designed to inflate in
certain types of rollover collisions or near
rollovers.
Vehicle damage (or lack of it) is not always an
indication of proper side air bag and curtain and
rollover air bag operation.
When the side air bags and curtain and rollover
air bags inflate, a fairly loud noise may be heard,
followed by release of smoke. This smoke is not
harmful and does not indicate a fire. Care should
be taken not to inhale it, as it may cause irritation
and choking. Those with a history of a breathing
condition should get fresh air promptly.
Side air bags, along with the use of seat belts,
help to cushion the impact force on the chest
and pelvic area of the front occupants. Curtain
and rollover air bags help to cushion the impact
force to the heads of occupants in the front and
rear outboard seating positions (Hardtop mod-
els) or the heads of the driver and front
passenger (CrossCabriolet models). They can
help save lives and reduce serious injuries.
However, side air bags and curtain and rollover
air bags may cause abrasions or other injuries.
Side air bags and curtain and rollover air bags
do not provide restraint to the lower body.
The seat belts should be correctly worn and the
driver and passenger seated upright as far as
practical away from the side air bags. Rear seat
passengers should be seated as far away as
practical from the door finishers and side roof
rails. The side air bags and curtain and rollover

air bags inflate quickly in order to help protect
the occupants. Because of this, the force of the
side air bags and curtain and rollover air bags
inflating can increase the risk of injury if the
occupant is too close to, or is against, these air
bag modules during inflation. In a rollover, the
curtain and rollover air bags on both sides are
designed to inflate. Under both side-impact and
rollover situations, the curtain air bags will
remain inflated for a short period of time.
The side air bags and curtain and rollover
air bags operate only when the ignition
switch is in the ON position.
After pushing the ignition switch to the ON
position, the supplemental air bag warning
light illuminates. The supplemental air bag
warning light will turn off after about 7
seconds if the systems are operational.
WARNING
.Do not place any objects near the
seatback of the front seats. Also, do
not place any objects (an umbrella,
bag, etc.) between the front door
finisher and the front seat. Such
objects may become dangerous
projectiles and cause injury if a side
air bag or door-mounted curtain air
bag (CrossCabriolet model) inflates.
.Right after inflation, several side air
bag and curtain and rollover air bag
system components will be hot. Do
not touch them; you may severely
burn yourself.
.No unauthorized changes should be
made to any components or wiring
of this side air bag and curtain and
rollover air bags. This is to prevent
damage to or accidental inflation of
the side-impact air bag and curtain
side-impact and rollover air bag
systems.
.Do not make unauthorized changes
to your vehicle’s electrical system,
suspension system, door panel,

and buckle as a unit.
.If the vehicle becomes involved in a
collision but a pretensioner is not
activated, be sure to have the pre-
tensioner system checked and, if
necessary, replaced by a NISSAN
dealer.
.No unauthorized changes should be
made to any components or wiring
of the pretensioner system. This is
to prevent damage to or accidental
activation of the pretensioners.
Tampering with the pretensioner
system may result in serious perso-
nal injury.
.Work around and on the preten-
sioner system should be done by a
NISSAN dealer. Installation of elec-
trical equipment should also be
done by a NISSAN dealer. Un-
authorized electrical test equipment
and probing devices should not be
used on the pretensioner system.
.If you need to dispose of a preten-
sioner or scrap the vehicle, contact a
NISSAN dealer. Correct preten-
sioner disposal procedures are set
forth in the appropriate NISSAN
Service Manual. Incorrect disposal
procedures could cause personal
injury.
The pretensioner system may activate with the
supplemental air bag system in certain types of
collisions. Working with the seat belt retractor, it
helps tighten the seat belt when the vehicle
becomes involved in certain types of collisions,
helping to restrain front seat occupants.
The pretensioner is encased with the seat belt
retractor. These seat belts are used the same
way as conventional seat belts.
When a pretensioner activates, smoke is re-
leased and a loud noise may be heard. The
smoke is not harmful and does not indicate a
fire. Care should be taken not to inhale it, as it
may cause irritation and choking. Those with a
history of a breathing condition should get fresh
air promptly.
After pretensioner activation, load limiters allow
the seat belt to release webbing (if necessary) to
reduce forces against the chest.
The supplemental air bag warning light is
used to indicate malfunctions in the pretensioner
system. (See “Supplemental air bag warning
light” later in this section for more details.) If the
operation of the supplemental air bag warning
light indicates there is a malfunction, have the
system checked by a NISSAN dealer.
When selling your vehicle, we request that you

indication soon after repeated adjust-
ment, have the compass checked at a
NISSAN dealer.
.The compass may not indicate the
correct compass point in tunnels or while
driving up or down a steep hill.
(The compass returns to the correct com-
pass point when the vehicle moves to an
area where the geomagnetism is stabilized.)
CAUTION
.Do not install a ski rack, antenna,
etc., which are attached to the
vehicle by means of a magnet. They
affect the operation of the compass.

der-inflated tires may permanently
damage the tires and increase the
likelihood of tire failure. Serious
vehicle damage could occur and
may lead to an accident and could
result in serious personal injury.
Check the tire pressure for all four
tires. Adjust the tire pressure to the
recommended COLD tire pressure
shown on the Tire and Loading
Information label to turn the low
tire pressure warning light OFF. If
the light still illuminates while driv-
ing after adjusting the tire pressure,
a tire may be flat. If you have a flat
tire, replace it with a spare tire as
soon as possible.
.When a spare tire is mounted or a
wheel is replaced, the TPMS will not
function and the low tire pressure
warning light will flash for approxi-
mately 1 minute. The light will
remain on after 1 minute. Contact
your NISSAN dealer as soon as
possible for tire replacement and/
or system resetting.
.Replacing tires with those not ori-
ginally specified by NISSAN could
affect the proper operation of the
TPMS.
CAUTION
.The TPMS is not a substitute for the
regular tire pressure check. Be sure
to check the tire pressure regularly.
.If the vehicle is being driven at
speeds of less than 16 MPH (25
km/h), the TPMS may not operate
correctly.
.Be sure to correctly install the
specified size of tires to the four
wheels.

VEHICLE SECURITY SYSTEM (if so
equipped) GUID-3A2129E5-3F98-44E7-8D33-56C1DC801E7A
The vehicle security system provides visual and
audio alarm signals if someone opens the doors
or lift gate/trunk when the system is armed. It is
not, however, a motion detection type system
that activates when a vehicle is moved or when a
vibration occurs.
The system helps deter vehicle theft but cannot
prevent it, nor can it prevent the theft of interior
or exterior vehicle components in all situations.
Always secure your vehicle even if parking for a
brief period. Never leave your keys in the vehicle,
and always lock it when unattended. Be aware
of your surroundings, and park in secure, well-lit
areas whenever possible.
Many devices offering additional protection,
such as component locks, identification markers,
and tracking systems, are available at auto
supply stores and specialty shops. Your
NISSAN dealer may also offer such equipment.
Check with your insurance company to see if
you may be eligible for discounts for various
theft protection features.

WARNING
HIGH VOLTAGE
.When xenon headlights are on, they
produce a high voltage. To prevent
an electric shock, never attempt to
modify or disassemble. Always have
your xenon headlights replaced at a
NISSAN dealer.
.Xenon headlights provide consider-
ably more light than conventional
headlights. If they are not correctly
aimed, they might temporarily blind
an oncoming driver or the driver
ahead of you and cause a serious
accident. If headlights are not aimed
correctly, immediately take your ve-
hicle to a NISSAN dealer and have
the headlights adjusted correctly.
When the xenon headlight is initially turned on,
its brightness or color varies slightly. However,
the color and brightness will soon stabilize.
.The life of xenon headlights will be
shortened by frequent on-off opera-
tion. It is generally desirable not to turn
off the headlights for short intervals
(for example, when the vehicle stops at
a traffic signal).
.If the xenon headlight bulb is close to
burning out, the brightness will drasti-
cally decrease, the light will start
blinking, or the color of the light will
become reddish. If one or more of the

WARNING
.Do not use the HomeLink
®
Universal
Transceiver with any garage door
opener that lacks safety stop and
reverse features as required by
federal safety standards. (These
standards became effective for
opener models manufactured after
April 1, 1982). A garage door opener
which cannot detect an object in the
path of a closing garage door and
then automatically stop and reverse,
does not meet current federal safety
standards. Using a garage door
opener without these features in-
creases the risk of serious injury or
death.
.During the programming procedure
your garage door or security gate
will open and close (if the transmit-
ter is within range). Make sure that
people or objects are clear of the
garage door, gate, etc. that you are
programming.
.Your vehicle’s engine should be
turned off while programming the
HomeLink

Universal Transceiver.
Do not breathe exhaust gases; they
contain colorless and odorless car-
bon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is
dangerous. It can cause uncon-
sciousness or death.

Canadian radio-frequency laws require trans-
mitter signals to “time-out” (or quit) after several
seconds of transmission – which may not be
long enough for HomeLink
®
to pick up the signal
during programming. Similar to this Canadian
law, some U.S. gate operators are designed to
“time-out” in the same manner.
