System of additional safety (SRS)

The scheme of an arrangement of typical components SRS

1 — the Module of management with the built in control gauges
2 — the Module of a driver's pillow of safety
3 — the Module of a passenger pillow of safety
4 — the Left forward gauge of the directed overloads
5 — the Right forward gauge of the directed overloads
6 — the Module emergency натяжителя a seat belt of a driver's seat

7 — the Module emergency натяжителя a seat belt of a passenger seat
8 — the Module of the left lateral pillow of safety
9 — the Module of the right lateral pillow of safety
10 — the Gauge of the directed overloads of the left lateral pillow of safety
11 — the Gauge of the directed overloads of the right lateral pillow of safety
12 — Connecting electroconducting SRS (in yellow isolation)


Into number of devices and the components forming system of additional safety (SRS) enter:

a) Two lobbies (face-to-face) pillows of safety - a standard complete set. 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) Two lateral pillows of safety of forward seats - an additional complete set. Modules of lateral pillows of safety are built in in external lateral parts of backs of seats;
c) the Gauges of the directed overloads working at strong front/lateral blow;
d) 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;
e) Devices of an automatic emergency tension of seat belts of forward seats - a standard complete set;
f) the Control lamp of refusals SRS which has been built in in the panel of devices;
g) 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.

In an instrument guard of the car special control lamp SRS (see Has undressed the Panel of devices - the general information), intended for the prevention of the driver about revealed by system of self-diagnostics refusals in system of additional safety is built in. Depending on a complete set of the car operation of a control lamp testifies to possible malfunctions of modules of face-to-face/lateral pillows of safety or devices of an automatic emergency tension of seat belts.

Principle of functioning of face-to-face pillows of safety

 At all do not transport children of younger age on a forward seat equipped with a passenger pillow of safety of the car! Told concerns as well installation on a forward seat of a special children's seat.

 At weak collisions and car overturning face-to-face pillows of safety should not to work.

Gauges of the directed overloads react to excess of some limiting value which can arise at a strong head-on collision. On a signal of gauges the management block includes газогенераторы safety pillows, causing their instant filling.

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.

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 a range of sensitivity of gauges. 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.

Principle of functioning of lateral pillows of safety

On some models as an additional complete set lateral pillows of safety of the driver and the forward passenger can be established. Modules of pillows are built in in external end faces of backs of forward seats. The locations of both lateral pillows are marked by inscriptions «SIDE AIRBAG».

At strong lateral blow gauges of the directed overloads fix excess by arising loadings of some threshold value and give out an information signal on the block of management which develops a command on operations газогенератора a corresponding lateral pillow of safety. Thus, if blow has had from outside a passenger seat, the passenger lateral pillow will work even in the absence of the passenger on a forward seat.

For maintenance of the greatest efficiency of protection which is provided with safety pillows, the driver and the passenger sitting on a forward seat, should sit directly and to be fastened seat belts.

Order of functioning of a control lamp of refusals SRS

At ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in position «ON») the control lamp lights up for short time, then at once dies away that confirms about serviceability of functioning of all knots of system.

At any operation of a control lamp during any other moment the owner of the car should address at the first possibility for the help to experts of a car repair shop of company Subaru. The following concerns number of such situations:

a) the Control lamp does not join at ignition key turn in position ON;
b) the Control lamp continues to burn after realisation of start of the engine;
c) the Control lamp is activated and burns in a constant or flashing mode during car movement.

In the presence of listed above malfunction signs the additional system of safety can refuse at car failure.

 The scornful relation to signals of control lamp SRS can lead to the most serious consequences at refusal of pillows of safety during road and transport incident!

Seat belts with automatic emergency натяжителями

 The Section System of additional safety (SRS) - the device and a functioning principle in the Head the Onboard electric equipment see also.

Натяжители are put in action at the strong face-to-face overloads arising at a head-on collision, and provide instant sample of a weak point of belts therefore tapes of the last densely cover a body sitting, in much degree raising degree of protection of the driver and the forward passenger.

Натяжитель () it is built in in assemblage of the returnable mechanism of a belt. The using order such seat belts is similar to an using order the usual belts equipped with inertial returnable devices. The operation mechanism натяжителя is absolutely transparent for the user and does not demand from the last any additional skills and knowledge.

Activation натяжителей occurs only at considerable face-to-face overloads. Operation of modules is accompanied by a loud clap and small дымообразованием.

 Allocated at operation натяжителей the smoke is safe for health of the person, however at direct inhalation can cause irritation of mucous membranes.

It is necessary to notice that operation refusals натяжителей at a head-on collision in most cases speak not malfunction of system, and that overloads arising at blow do not reach threshold value at which activation of modules is made.

As well as in case of safety pillows, modules emergency натяжителей are calculated on unitary operation and after that are subject to replacement in gathering with belts, - address on firm car repair shops of company Subaru. All claims concerning refusals of components SRS In the same place are accepted.

Maintenance service of elements SRS

Pillows of safety and the device of an automatic emergency tension of seat belts, practically do not require regular checks and maintenance service. However the owner of the vehicle equipped in appropriate way should have in view of following the moments:

a) After operation of pillows of safety they are subject to obligatory replacement together with the block of management of system. Do not try to dismantle fulfilled pillows independently. These operations should be carried out only in the conditions of a car-care centre workshop;
b) If operation of control lamp SRS specifies in refusal presence in system, it is necessary to address immediately on the nearest car repair shop of company Subaru where full diagnostics and necessary regenerative repair of system will be made. Otherwise safety pillows can not work at road and transport incident and not execute the protective function;
c) To works with knots of additional system of safety specially trained personnel is supposed only. It is forbidden to dismantle independently from the car of a pillow of safety and emergency натяжители seat belts. In default SRS or after emergency operation of pillows of safety and натяжителей seat belts it is necessary to address on a car repair shop of company Subaru for carrying out of repair or replacement of knots of system;
d) do not open modules and do not change electroconducting of systems of pillows of safety and devices of an automatic emergency tension of seat belts, - such intervention can lead to involuntary operation of pillows and натяжителей and be at the bottom травмирования of the executor or people being nearby;
e) do not make replacement of forward seats without reception of preliminary consultation on company Subaru car repair shop. Inaccurate or incorrect performance of replacement or removal of covers can lead to refusal of operation of lateral pillows of safety in case of road and transport incident.

By car transfer to other person it is necessary to inform without fail the last on all established elements SRS with instructions of corresponding points of the instruction on rules of use of the car.

On all equipped SRS models in places of placing of active elements of system special warning tablets are established.
