What is the Personal Safety System?
Your car is equipped with what’s called a Personal Safety System™ (PSS). It’s a combined system consisting of a number of important safety features and elements in the car. By combining the functionality of different sensors and other equipment, the system is able to measure how severe an impact is, deploy air bags, activate head restraints and more. Here’s what you need to know about the makeup of the PSS:
Driver and passenger front air bags
Driver and passenger front seat belts and seat belt retractors
Seat belt usage sensors
Driver front seat position sensor
Passenger front air bag Active/OFF light
Front crash sensor (severity)
