The supplemental air bag warning light, displaying panel, in the instrument panel, monitors the circuits of the supplemental front-impact air bag, front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bag, roofmounted curtain side-impact and rollover supplemental air bag, and seat belt pretensioner systems.

When the ignition switch is in the ON position, the supplemental air bag warning light illuminates for about 7 seconds and then turns off. This means the system is operational.

► The supplemental air bag warning light remains on approximately 7 seconds after the ignition switch is pushed to the ON position.
► The supplemental air bag warning light flashes intermittently.
► The supplemental air bag warning light does not come on at all. Under these conditions, the front air bag, side air bags, and curtain and rollover air bags or pretensioner systems may not operate properly. They must be checked and repaired. Take your vehicle to the nearest INFINITI retailer.
