BOOSTER SEATS

PRECAUTIONS ON BOOSTER SEATS

SSS0099

WARNING

쐌 Children should always be placed in an appropriate child restraint while riding in the vehicle. Failure to use a child restraint or booster seat can result in serious injury or death.

쐌 Children should never be carried on your lap. It is not possible for even

to resist

the strongest adult the forces of a severe accident. The child could be crushed between the adult and parts of the vehicle. Also, do not put the same seat belt around both your child and yourself.

쐌 A booster seat must only be installed in a seating position that has a lap/shoulder belt. Failure to use a three-point type seat belt with a booster seat can result in a serious injury in sudden stop or collision.

쐌 Improper use or improper installation of a booster seat can increase the risk or severity of injury for both the child and other occupants of the ve- hicle and can lead to serious injury or death in an accident.

쐌 Do not use towels, books, pillows or other items in place of a booster seat. Items such as these may move during normal driving or a collision and result in serious injury or death. Booster seats are designed to be used with a lap/shoulder belt.

Booster seats are designed to prop- erly route the lap and shoulder por- tions of the seat belt over the stron- gest portions of a child’s body to provide the maximum protection dur- ing a collision.

쐌 Follow all of the booster seat manu- facturer’s instructions for installation and use. When purchasing a booster seat, be sure to select one which will fit your child and vehicle. It may not be possible to properly install some types of booster seats in your ve- hicle.

쐌 If the booster seat and seat belt are not used properly, the risk of a child being injured in a collision or a sud- den stop greatly increases.

쐌 Adjustable seatbacks should be po- sitioned to fit the booster seat, but as upright as possible.

쐌 After placing the child in the booster seat and fastening the seat belt, make sure the shoulder portion of

쐌 Remember that a booster seat left in a closed vehicle can become very hot. Check the seating surface and buck- les before placing your child in the booster seat.

the belt is away from the child’s face and neck and the lap portion of the belt does not cross the abdomen.

쐌 Do not put the shoulder belt behind the child or under the child’s arm. If you must install a booster seat in the front seat, see “Booster seat instal- lation on front passenger seat” later in this section.

쐌 When your booster seat is not in use, keep it secured with a seat belt to prevent it from being thrown around in case of a sudden stop or accident.

CAUTION

쐌 For Roadster models, when installing a booster seat, be sure to turn off the automatic passenger seatback tilt function with the seatback tilt cancel switch (located on the back of the passenger seatback). Otherwise, the booster seat may be damaged. See “Tilting and reclining passenger’s

LRS0455

Booster seats of various sizes are offered by several manufacturers. When selecting any booster seat, keep the following points in mind: 쐌 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.

BOOSTER SEAT INSTALLATION ON FRONT PASSENGER SEAT

CAUTION

Do not use the lap/shoulder belt Auto- matic Locking Retractor mode when us- ing a booster seat with the seat belts.

Follow these steps to install a booster seat in the front passenger seat: If you must install a booster seat in the front passenger seat, move the passenger seat to the rearmost position. 1. Turn the seatback tilt cancel switch to the

CANCEL position. (Roadster models only)

2. Position the booster seat on the seat. Only place it in a front facing direction. Always follow the booster seat manufacturer’s in- structions.

SSS0363 쐌 Check the booster seat in your vehicle to be sure it is compatible with the vehicle’s seat and seat belt system.

쐌 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 쎻1 is 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 쎻2 should be used.

LRS0454 쐌 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 proce- dures.

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.

structions for adjusting the belt routing.

5. Pull the shoulder belt portion of the seat belt toward the retractor to take up extra slack. Be sure the shoulder belt is positioned across the top, middle portion of the child’s shoul- der. Be sure to follow the booster seat manu- facturer’s instructions for adjusting the belt routing.

7.

6. Follow the warnings, cautions and instruc- tions for properly fastening a seat belt shown in the “Three-point type seat belt with retrac- tor” earlier in this section. If the booster seat is installed in the front passenger seat, turn the ignition switch to the ON position. The front passenger air bag status light may or may not illuminate depending on the size of the child and the type of booster seat used. See “Front pas- senger air bag and status light” later in this section.

The side air bags are designed to inflate on the side where the vehicle is impacted.

3. The booster seat should be positioned on the vehicle seat so that it is stable. If necessary, adjust or remove the head restraint to obtain the correct booster seat fit. See “Head re- straint adjustment” earlier in this section. If the head restraint is removed, store it in a secure place. Be sure to install the head restraint when the booster seat is removed. If the seating position does not have an adjust- able head restraint and it is interfering with the proper booster seat fit, try a different booster seat.

4. Position the lap portion of the seat belt low and snug on the child’s hips. Be sure to follow the booster seat manufacturer’s in-

Roof-mounted curtain side-impact supple- mental air bag system (if so equipped for Coupe models): This system can help cushion the impact force to the head of occupants in certain side impact collisions. The curtain air bags are designed to inflate on the side where the vehicle is impacted. The supplemental restraint system is designed to supplement the crash protection provided by the driver and passenger seat belts and is not a substitute for them. Seat belts should always be correctly worn and the occupant seated a suitable distance away from the steer- ing wheel, instrument panel, door finishers and side roof rails. (See “Seat belts” earlier in this section for instructions and precautions on seat belt usage.) The supplemental air bags operate only when the ignition switch is in the ON or START position. After turning the ignition key 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

쐌 The front air bags ordinarily will not inflate in the event of a side impact, rear impact, rollover, or lower sever- ity frontal collision. Always wear your seat belts to help reduce the risk or severity of injury in various kinds of accidents.

쐌 The front passenger air bag will not inflate if the passenger air bag status

쐌 The seat belts and the front air bags are most effective when you are sit- ting 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 Advanced Air Bag System, if you are unrestrained, lean- ing forward, sitting 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 in- flates. Always sit back against the seatback and as far away as practical from the steering wheel or instru- ment panel. Always use the seat belts.

쐌 The driver and front passenger seat belt buckles are equipped with sen- sors that detect if the seat belts are fastened. The Advanced Air Bag Sys- tem monitors the severity of a colli- sion and seat belt usage then inflates the air bags. Failure to properly wear seat belts can increase the risk or severity of injury in an accident.

쐌 The front passenger seat is equipped with an occupant classification sen- sor (pattern sensor) that turns the front passenger air bag OFF under some conditions. This sensor is only used in this seat. Failure to be prop-
