Do not attempt to deactivate your airbags.

Together, airbags and seat belts provide the best protection.

Do not tamper with airbag components or wiring for any reason.

Tampering could cause the airbags to deploy, possibly causing very serious injury.

Do not expose the front passenger’s seat-back to liquid.

If water or another liquid soaks into a seatback, it can prevent the side airbag cutoff system from working properly.

Do not remove or modify a front seat without consulting your dealer.

This could make the driver’s seat position sensor or the front passenger’s weight sensors ineffective. If it is necessary to remove or modify a front seat to accommodate a person with disabilities, first contact Honda Automobile Customer Service at (800) 999-1009 in the US, or Honda Customer Relations at 1- 888-9-HONDA-9 in Canada.
