Dodge Charger: OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS / If A Deployment Occurs

Dodge Charger 2011-2024 Owner's Manual / SAFETY / OCCUPANT RESTRAINT SYSTEMS / If A Deployment Occurs

The front air bags are designed to deflate immediately after deployment.

NOTE:

Front and/or side air bags will not deploy in all collisions. This does not mean something is wrong with the air bag system.

If you do have a collision which deploys the air bags, any or all of the following may occur:

  • The air bag material may sometimes cause abrasions and/or skin reddening to the occu- pants as the air bags deploy and unfold. The abrasions are similar to friction rope burns or those you might get sliding along a carpet or gymnasium floor. They are not caused by contact with chemicals. They are not perma- nent and normally heal quickly. However, if you haven’t healed significantly within a few days, or if you have any blistering, see your doctor immediately.
  • As the air bags deflate, you may see some smoke-like particles. The particles are a normal by-product of the process that gener- ates the non-toxic gas used for air bag infla- tion. These airborne particles may irritate the skin, eyes, nose, or throat. If you have skin or eye irritation, rinse the area with cool water. For nose or throat irritation, move to fresh air. If the irritation continues, see your doctor. If these particles settle on your clothing, follow the garment manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning.

Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved in another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.

WARNING!

Deployed air bags and seat belt pretensioners cannot protect you in another collision. Have the air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and the seat belt retractor assemblies replaced by an authorized dealer immediately. Also, have the Occupant Restraint Controller System serviced as well.

NOTE:

  • Air bag covers may not be obvious in the inte- rior trim, but they will open during air bag deployment.
  • After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
