What do I do if the seat belt tensioners have been used?
The tensioners are located in the front seat belts, and are an important part of your vehicle’s seat belt system. During certain levels of impact and collision, the tensioners activate, and help tighten the front seat belts to keep the occupants safe. However, the tensioners can only be used once, and cannot be repaired. If the tensioners have been used, they will need to be replaced as soon as possible. An alert on the instrument panel labeled SRS will illuminate if the tensioners have been used and need to be replaced.
