Hyundai Santa Fe: Where are the air bags? / Side air bags

Hyundai Santa Fe (TM) 2019-2024 Owner's Manual / Seats & Safety System / Air bag - supplemental restraint system / Where are the air bags? / Side air bags

Your vehicle is equipped with a side air bag in each front seat. The purpose of the air bag is to provide the vehicle’s driver and the front passenger with additional protection than that offered by the seat belt alone.

The side air bags are designed to deploy during certain side impact collisions, depending on the crash severity, angle, speed and point of impact.

The side air bags on both sides of the vehicle are designed to deploy when a rollover is detected by a rollover sensor. (if equipped with rollover sensor)

The side air bags are not designed to deploy in all side impact or rollover situations.

WARNING

To reduce the risk of serious injury or death from an inflating side air bag and front center air bag, take the following precautions:

  • Seat belts must be worn at all times to help keep occupants positioned properly.
  • Do not allow passengers to lean their heads or bodies onto doors, put their arms on the doors, stretch their arms out of the window, or place objects between the doors and seats.
  • Hold the steering wheel at the 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions, to minimize the risk of injuries to your hands and arms.
  • Do not use any accessory seat covers. This could reduce or prevent the effectiveness of the system.
  • Do not hang other objects except clothes. In an accident it may cause vehicle damage or personal injury especially when air bag is inflated.
  • Do not place any objects over the air bag or between the air bag and yourself. Also, do not attach any objects around the area the air bag inflates such as the door, side door glass, front and rear pillar.
  • Do not place any objects between the door and the seat. They may become dangerous projectiles if the side air bag inflates.
  • Do not install any accessories on the side or near the side air bags.
  • Do not cause impact to the doors when the Engine Start/Stop button is in the ON or START position as this may cause the side air bags to inflate.
  • If the seat or seat cover is damaged, have the system be serviced by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

    Air bag collision sensors

    WARNING

    To reduce the risk of an air bag deploying unexpectedly and causing serious injury or death:

    Do not hit or allow any objects to impact the locations where air bags or sensors are installed. Do not perform maintenance on or around the air bag sensors. If the location or angle of the sensors is altered, the air bags may deploy when they should not or may not deploy when they should. Installing bumper guards with nongenuine Hyundai or non-equivalent parts may adversely affect the collision and airbag deployment performance. Press the Engine Start/Stop button to the OFF or ACC position and wait for 3 minutes when the vehicle is being towed to prevent inadvertent air bag deployment. Have all air bag repairs performed by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
