The cars considered in the present manual are equipped a complex of the means intended for protection of the driver and passengers in case of a road accident. Here the seat belts established on all seats of the car and the other devices which are effectively supplementing belts enter.

Some components of a security system, being an integral part of a design of the car, do not demand additional attention from the owner transport means. The strong steel frame forming a design of a cabin in which the salon, forward and back zones of the deformation absorbing energy of blow at collision is located belongs to their number; the safety steering column developing at blow; and also devices of an automatic tension of seat belts (an additional complete set) which automatically carry out a tension of belts in case of blow.

Seat belts

For safety of the driver and passengers all seats of the car are equipped with seat belts.

In the dashboard of some models the special krolny lamp reminding to the driver and passengers about need to be fastened by seat belts is built in.

Safety cushions of the driver and passenger

The system of additional safety of SRS better known as the safety cushions intended for protection of the driver and the forward passenger against heading or a breast about a steering wheel / dashboard in case of strong front blow is included in the standard package of some models.

Also lateral safety cushions providing protection of the driver and forward passenger at lateral blows can be included in the additional package.


The owner of the car equipped with SRS system is obliged to know the most important points about a design and the principle of action of elements of system:

a) Existence of safety cushions cannot excuse neglect of application of seat belts at all. SRS has to be used only in a compartment with belts and other means of passive safety;
b) Forward safety cushions do not provide protection in case of lateral blow, and also at blow behind. Besides, operation of modules happens only at the directed blows of high intensity, i.e. the system does not provide protection at weak head-on collisions;
c) Lateral safety cushions do not provide protection in case of a head-on collision and blow behind, besides, they work also only at excess by energy of lateral blow of some threshold of intensity that not always takes place at a car turning;
d) Operation of a safety cushion can put a trauma.

Effectively to execute the protective function, the pillow of an ezopasnost has to be developed from the put state in working for very short time. Therefore a safety cushion, protecting the driver / the forward passenger from heavy mutilations, in some cases saving their life, can become the traumatizing reason, and sometimes and serious mutilations up to a lethal outcome if the driver or the forward passenger were not properly fastened by seat belts or held emergency position on seats.

To reduce probability of traumatizing by a pillow, it is necessary to be fastened a gda all by seat belts and to settle down on a driver's seat on the greatest possible removal from a steering wheel / dashboard.

Provision of seats and their backs

The design of seats of the car guarantees the maximum comfort to the person sitting in them, at the same time providing conditions of the most effective implementation of the functions with belts and safety cushions. Soft stuffing of pillows and backs provides additional protection sitting in emergencies.

Adjustment of provision of a seat also has impact on safety of the person sitting in it. For example, too close provision of a seat to a steering wheel / dashboard increases risk of traumatizing at operation of a safety cushion, and also risk of the ejection sitting through a windshield.

The increase in an inclination of a back of a seat will worsen fixing of a body a seat belt, - the more the back is inclined back, the probability of slipping of a body under zone section of a seat belt at strong front blow is higher, and the heavier can be traumatized.

Record the provision of a forward seat in the situation, most remote from a steering wheel / dashboard, bring a back into vertical situation.

Head restraints

Head restraints prevent traumatizing cervical department of a backbone and head at blow behind. The head restraint has to be adjusted on height so that its top cut was flush with the upper edge of the ear sitting.

Instructions for use means of passive safety of the driver and passengers

The instructions stated below acquaint the reader with ways of ensuring the maximum protection of all people who are in the car.

Doors

After the driver and all passengers took the places in salon, be convinced that all doors of the car are densely closed.
The car is equipped with a special control lamp which lights up at leaky closing of one or several doors of the car.

Forward seats

The driver sitting too close to the dashboard is exposed to the increased risk of traumatizing, up to receiving serious mutilations and a lethal outcome from blow about a steering wheel or at operation of a safety cushion, in case of a road accident.

In order to avoid risk of traumatizing, properly fasten a seat belt, bring a seat back into vertical situation and densely nestle on it a back, having removed at this seat in the situation, most remote from a steering wheel. Thus, certainly, the driver has to ensure the good review and possibility of a convenient manipulation all governing bodies of the car. Be convinced that the seat of the forward passenger is also most removed from the dashboard.

Too close provision of seats of the driver and forward passenger to a steering wheel / dashboard in case of a road accident can lead to receiving serious injuries or even to a deadly outcome.

Try to have always forward seats on the maximum removal from modules of safety cushions.
The vast majority of drivers (even low growth) can remove most far a driver's seat from a steering wheel, freely reaching thus pedals. However, if you are disturbed by too close provision of a driver's seat to a steering wheel, authors of the present manual recommend to you to pay attention to some types of the service equipment, - at firm car repair shops of the Honda company it is always possible to receive exhaustive information on the matter.

Having convinced of correctness the provision of a seat, check reliability of its fixing. Instructions on regulirovkepolozheniye of forward seats are provided in the Section Equipment of the Car, an arrangement of devices and governing bodies.

Adjust an inclination of a back of a driver's seat, having brought it into the most convenient for your constitution, the situation which is most approached to vertical, having left thus to tatochny space between a thorax and a nave of a steering wheel in which the pillow of a bezop to Nosta is built in. Remember that excessively close arrangement of the driver / the forward passenger to the dashboard considerably increases risk of receiving injuries at operation of safety cushions.

Too strong inclination of a back of a seat leads to that the humeral section of a belt will not nestle on a thorax that in an essential measure reduces efficiency of protective functions of a belt. The more the back of a seat is inclined back, the probability of slipping of a body of the car sitting under on yasnichny section at strong front blow is higher, and the heavier can be traumatized. Instructions on adjustment of backs of a seat are provided in the Section Equipment of the Car, an arrangement of devices and governing bodies.

Head restraints

Before a start of motion make sure that the provision of head restraints on each of seats conforms to necessary requirements, providing due protection of cervical department of the backbone and head sitting at blow behind. The head restraint has to be adjusted on height so that its central part was flush with a nape. If it do not manage to achieve, the head restraint should be established in extreme top on a lozheniye.

Wrong on a lozheniye of head restraints reduces efficiency of their protective functions and increases risk of receiving serious injuries as a result of a road accident. Instructions on adjustment of provision of head restraints are provided in the Section Equipment of the Car, an arrangement of devices and governing bodies.

Seat belts

Latch a belt buckle bracket in the lock, then pull for a strap of humeral section up, checking reliability of fixing of a bracket in the lock. Make sure that the strap of a belt is not overwound, - the overwound belt in itself is dangerous.

As much as possible lower zone section of a belt, having placed it as it is possible below on hips. Having pulled for humeral section, choose a weak point and try to achieve a dense prileganiye of a belt to a body. In case of need tighten a belt and achieve a dense prileganiye of its humeral section to a trunk. The strap has to pass through a thorax sitting on a diagonal so that loading at blow fell generally on the strongest upper torso.

Negligence to application of seat belts is fraught with receiving severe injuries in case of a road accident.


The driver of the vehicle, having fastened by the seat belt, has to check that all passengers were also properly fastened.

The correct provision of zone section of a belt will provide the safest repayment of inertia of a body at accident, holding it for strong bones of a coxofemoral joint. If the strap passes through a hand shoulder, it is necessary to correct the provision of the top anchor fastening of a belt on a car rack.

To adjust the provision of the top anchor of fastening of a belt, press the buttons of a clamp and shift fastening up or down built in in a rack directing, achieving the correct provision of humeral section of a belt concerning a neck. Fastening has four fixed situation.

Do not pass humeral section of a belt near at hand at all and do not get it for a back, is it can be fraught with the most serious consequences at accident.


Incorrectly functioning seat belt will not be able to provide appropriate protection of the driver/passenger in case of a road accident. The wrong use of belts is inadmissible involves serious risk of receiving injuries, on vrezhdeny and even a lethal outcome. In the absence of confidence in correctness of adjustments, charge to specialists of car repair shop of the Honda company how to carry out check of functioning of seat belts. Additional information on seat belts on the car to a predstavla on in the Section Equipment of the Car, an arrangement of devices and governing bodies.

Steering column

The steering column has to be adjusted so that the nave of a steering wheel was opposite to a thorax of the driver. Situation at which the nave of a steering wheel on is gone opposite to a face of the driver, is wrong as reduces protective functions of the forward safety cushion which is built in in it. The description of procedure of adjustment the provision of a steering wheel the arrangement of devices and governing bodies are given in the Section Equipment of the Car.

Landing to a seat

After the driver and all passengers took the places in salon of the car, adjusted the provision of the seats and put on seat belts, they have to give the correct situation to the body, having densely nestled a back on a back of a seat and having firmly put feet on a floor of salon. Feet should not come off a floor up to a full stop of the car and switching off of the engine.

Violation of correctness of landing during the movement increases risk of receiving a trauma as a result of a road accident. So, if passengers sit having bent, lie, turn in the parties, bend forward or sideways, get on a seat with feet, the risk of receiving serious mutilations by them as a result of accident considerably increases.

Besides, the forward passengers holding the wrong position on seats can suffer serious injuries from the parts of internal finishing of salon breaking as a result of emergency blow, or from operation of a forward safety cushion.

If on the car equipped with lateral safety cushions the head of the forward passenger during the movement is inclined sideways and is in an area of coverage of operation of a safety cushion, the risk of receiving by it extremely increases at accident of serious injuries and mutilations.

Try to observe the correct situation on a seat during all trip, holding a back densely pressed to a back of a seat and having put feet on a floor. Remember that vertical position of landing and competent use of seat belts increase efficiency of functioning of all elements of safety with which the car is equipped.

Recommendations for pregnant women

Safety of the pregnant woman at a road accident is the best way of preservation of a fruit. Therefore at the movement on the car (as the driver or the passenger) the pregnant woman has to be fastened without fail by a seat belt, paying thus special attention to correctness of placement of its sections concerning the body.

When using belts of a diagonal and zone design it is necessary to remember that the zone section has to settle down as it is possible below.


The pregnant woman also has to hold vertical position on a seat. Thus the forward seat has to be most far removed from the dashboard that will allow to reduce risk of receiving injuries or mutilations not only for mother, but also for a fruit in case of a road accident or operation of a forward safety cushion.

At each visit of the doctor at which you are observed during pregnancy, consult, whether it is desirable to operate for you the car.

Transportation of children

For safety of transportation of children of younger and middle age it is necessary to use special children's seats and means of fixing. In case of need consult at representatives service center of the Honda company.

Additional recommendations

It is forbidden to use the same seat belt for fastening of two people at the same time. In this case the belt will not carry out the protective functions and at a road accident passengers can get severe injuries.
Do not attach any slips and other subjects to straps of seat belts. Installation of additional subjects or change of provision of fastening of humeral section can reduce efficiency of action of seat belts and increase probability of traumatizing at accident.

Have no firm or sharp subjects between the body and a forward safety cushion.

Transportation of firm or sharp subjects on a lap, or driving with a tube for smoking or other sharp subjects in a mouth at accident can lead to receiving severe injuries.

For the purpose of prevention of risk of unauthorized operation of forward safety cushions try not to bring hands to the locations of their modules on the dashboard and a nave of a steering wheel.

On the models equipped with lateral safety cushions do not fix firm subjects to internal panels of forward doors or in close proximity to them. At operation of a lateral safety cushion holders for glasses or other subjects fixed on the internal panel of a forward door can be broken with risk of injuring the forward passenger.

Additional information on seat belts

Diagonal and zone seat belt

The scheme of laying and way of fastening of a seat belt of a diagonal and zone design is submitted on an illustration.

To unfasten a belt, press the red button with an inscription of PRESS which is located on the buckle lock case. At taking-up of a belt it is necessary to hold with a drum of the returnable device it for a buckle bracket. After an exit from the car check that the belt did not get to a doorway and it was not clamped at a zakhlopyvaniye of the last.

Belts of a diagonal and zone design are equipped with the returnable device of inertial type which drum, automatically chooses a weak point of straps and constantly supports a small preliminary tension of the belt pressed to a body. Inertial belts practically do not constrain movements of the person fastened by them and allow it to change a pose to a seat easily. At a road accident or sharp braking of the car the returnable device automatically blocks a seat belt, providing fixing of a body from dangerous movements.

The diagonal and zone seat belts used on the considered models of cars on all seats, except lobbies, are supplied with the additional clamps providing possibility of reliable fixing of special child seats. More detailed information on the matter can be received at firm car repair shops of the Honda company.

At a sharp pulling of humeral section of a belt the fixing mechanism of the returnable device is put in action. The drum blocks a belt, excepting possibility of dangerous movement of the passenger.

Automatic emergency natyazhitel of seat belts

On some models for the purpose of ensuring additional protection of the driver/passenger forward seat belts are supplied with devices which at operation provide an automatic tension of belts that helps to exclude possibility of dangerous movements of the driver and passenger to a road accident vsluchaa.


Operation of automatic emergency natyazhitel happens at the directed overloads arising during a strong head-on collision. Emission of forward safety cushions is at the same time made.

At operation of the device the seat belt remains in a natyanutompolozheniye until the bracket of its buckle is not taken out from the lock of the last.

Inclusion of a control lamp of systems of additional safety (SRS) warns the driver about possible malfunctions in devices of automatic emergency natyazhitel of belts in the Section Equipment of the Car, an arrangement of devices and governing bodies.

Anchor knots of fastening of seat belts

Forward seats

When replacing belts bezopasnostisledut to be convinced of correctness of the chosen fastening places. Places of fastening of seat belts are shown on illustrations.

System of additional safety (SRS)

Enter number of the devices and components forming system of a dopolnitelnoybezopasnost (SRS):

a) Two forward safety cushions. The module of a driver's safety cushion is placed in a nave of a steering wheel. The safety cushion of the forward passenger is placed in a special cavity in the right part of the dashboard of the car. The locations of both pillows are marked with precautionary inscriptions of "SRS AIRBAG";
b) The sensors of the directed overloads working at strong front blow;
c) Electronic system of self-diagnostics which at the included ignition provides continuous testing of sensors of overloads, the control unit, gas generators of pillows and a connecting electrical wiring of the corresponding chains;
d) Devices of an avtomaticheskogoavariyny tension of seat belts of forward seats (see above);
e) A control lamp of refusals of SRS, built in in the dashboard (see the Section Equipment of the Car, an arrangement of devices and governing bodies);
f) The spare independent power supply intended for duplication of the main power supply system in case of its exit out of operation at collision of the car.

Principle of functioning of forward safety cushions

Sensors of the directed overloads react to excess of some limit value which to a mozha to tvozniknut at a strong head-on collision. On a signal of sensors the control unit includes gas generators of safety cushions, causing their instant filling.

During collision the seat belt holds the lower part of the trunk sitting from shift. Forward safety cushions help to prevent traumatizing the driver and forward passenger as a result of blow their head and a thorax about a steering wheel / dashboard.

As signals on operation of both safety cushions arrive from the same sensors, both pillows work at the same time. However, the probability of initiation of only one of pillows is not excluded. Such becomes possible when the size of the directed overloads which arose at collision was on the verge of the range of operation of gas generators. In this case seat belts provide rather reliable protection of the driver and forward passenger while the effect from operation of a safety cushion is 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 governing bodies of the car.

The full duration of process from the moment of giving of a signal occupies with sensors of overloads before production of gas from pillows fractions of a second. Operation of pillows happens so quickly that the human ear is simply incapable to apprehend cotton of gas generators when filling pillows.

After a road accident at which there was an operation of safety cushions, the volume of salon of the car looks slightly filled with smoke. Actually it is vzvestonkodispersny powder by which covers of pillows in the put state are usually poured. People with a disease of respiratory organs can feel a certain discomfort from the gaseous products containing in air allocated by gas generators of pillows.

Order of functioning of a control lamp of refusals of SRS

The control lamp of SRS is built in in an instrument guard of the car and intended for the warning of the driver of the refusals revealed by system of self-diagnostics in system of an additional security system. On some modifications of the car operation of a control lamp testifies to possible malfunctions in blocks of lateral safety cushions or devices of an automatic emergency tension of seat belts.

At ignition inclusion (the ignition key will turn in situation "ON" [II]) the control lamp lights up for a 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 at any other moment follows the owner of the car at the first opportunity to ask for the help specialists of car repair shop of the Honda company. The following is among such situations:

a) The control lamp does not join at turn of the ignition key in the situation ON (II);
b) The control lamp continues to burn after implementation of start of the engine;
c) The control lamp joined and burns in the constant or blinking mode during the movement the car
In the presence of listed above at malfunction signs an additional security system can refuse at failure of the car.

Negligence to signals of a control lamp of SRS can at a message to the most serious consequences at refusal of safety cushions during a road accident.

Additional information on lateral safety cushions

On some models as an additional complete set lateral safety cushions of the driver and 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 with inscriptions of "SIDEAIRBAG". A control lamp of SRS on an instrument guard of the car to a srabatyvayettakzha at detection of malfunctions in chains of initiation of lateral pillows.

At strong lateral blow sensors of the directed overloads fix excess by the arising loadings of some threshold value and give out information signal on the control unit which develops command for operations of a gas generator of the corresponding lateral safety cushion. Thus, if the blow had from a passenger seat, the passenger lateral pillow will work even in the absence of the passenger on a forward seat.

For ensuring the greatest efficiency of protection which is provided by safety cushions, the driver and the passenger sitting on a forward seat have to sit directly and to be fastened by seat belts.

Maintenance of the SRS elements

Safety cushions and devices of an automatic emergency tension of seat belts, practically do not need regular checks and maintenance. However the owner of the vehicle equipped as appropriate has to mean the next moments:

a) After operation of safety cushions they are subject to obligatory replacement together with the control unit of system. Do not try to dismantle the fulfilled pillows independently. These operations have to be carried out only in the conditions of a workshop of car service;
b) If operation of a control lamp of SRS indicates existence of refusal in system, it is necessary to address immediately on the nearest car repair shop of the Honda company where full diagnostics and necessary recovery repair of system will be made. Otherwise safety cushions can not work at a road accident and not execute the protective function;
c) Only specially trained personnel is allowed to works with knots of an additional security system. It is forbidden to dismantle independently from the car of a safety cushion and avaiyny natyazhitel of seat belts. In case of refusal SRS or after abnormally operation of safety cushions and natyazhitel of seat belts it is necessary to address at car repair shop of the Honda company for carrying out repair or replacement of knots of system;
d) Do not open modules and do not change an electrical wiring of systems of safety cushions and devices of an automatic emergency tension of seat belts, - such intervention can lead to involuntary operation of pillows and natyazhitel and be the reason of traumatizing the performer pi the people who are nearby;
e) Do not make replacement of forward seats without receiving preliminary consultation at car repair shop of the Honda company.

Inaccurate or incorrect performance of replacement or removal of covers can lead to refusal of operation of lateral safety cushions in case of a road accident.

Danger of poisoning with carbon monoxide (WITH)
