The airbag cut off switch cylinder sub-assembly can be used if deployment of the SRS front passenger airbag is undesirable.
The airbag cut off switch cylinder sub-assembly can be operated by the mechanical key, which is supplied with the key. Once the airbag cut off switch cylinder sub-assembly is turned to OFF, the SRS front passenger airbag will be disabled, regardless of any collision that may occur.
If the SRS front passenger airbag has been disabled, the AIRBAG OFF indicator light in the telltale light assembly illuminates to inform the driver.
