■ Battery voltage too low,
■ Frequent, repeated operation of the
radio remote control while not in
range, which will require re-
synchronisation,
■ Overload of the central locking
system by operating at frequent
intervals, the power supply is
interrupted for a short time,
■ Interference from higher-power
radio waves from other sources.

vehicle for the safety of the
occupants.
9 Warning
Fasten seat belt before each trip.
In the event of an accident, people
not wearing seat belts endanger
their fellow occupants and
themselves.
Seat belts are designed to be used by
only one person at a time. Child
restraint system 3 48.
Periodically check all parts of the belt
system for damage, pollution and
proper functionality.
Have damaged components
replaced. After an accident, have the
belts and triggered belt tensioners
replaced by a workshop.
Note
Make sure that the belts are not
damaged by shoes or sharp-edged
objects or trapped. Prevent dirt from
getting into the belt retractors.
Seat belt reminder X 3 80.
Belt force limiters
In the front seats, stress on the body
is reduced by the gradual release of
the belt during a collision.
Page: 39
Seats, restraints 39
Belt tensioners
In the event of a head-on or rear-end
collision of a certain severity, the front
seat belts are tightened.
9 Warning
Incorrect handling (e.g. removal or
fitting of belts) can trigger the belt
tensioners with risk of injury.
Deployment of the belt tensioners is
indicated by illumination of control
indicator v 3 80.
Triggered belt tensioners must be
replaced by a workshop. Belt
tensioners can only be triggered
once.
Note
Do not affix or install accessories or
other objects that may interfere with
the operation of the belt tensioners.
Do not make any modifications to
belt tensioner components as this
will invalidate the vehicle type
approval.

Airbag system
The airbag system consists of a
number of individual systems
depending on the scope of
equipment.
When triggered the airbags inflate
within milliseconds. They also deflate
so quickly that it is often unnoticeable
during the collision.
9 Warning
If handled improperly the airbag
systems can be triggered in an
explosive manner.
Note
The airbag systems and belt
pretensioner control electronics are
located in the centre console area.
Do not put any magnetic objects in
this area.
Do not stick anything on the airbag
covers and do not cover them with
other materials.
Each airbag is triggered only once.
Have deployed airbags replaced by
a workshop. Furthermore, it might be
necessary to have the steering
wheel, the instrument panel, parts of
the panelling, the door seals,
handles and the seats replaced.
Do not make any modifications to
the airbag system as this will
invalidate the vehicle type approval.
When the airbags inflate, escaping
hot gases may cause burns.

9 Danger
Do not use a child restraint system
on the passenger seat with active
front airbag.
The airbag label is located on both
sides of the front passenger sun visor.
Airbag deactivation 3 46.
Front airbag system
The front airbag system consists of
one airbag in the steering wheel and
one in the instrument panel on the
front passenger side. These can be
identified by the word AIRBAG.
The front airbag system is triggered in
the event of an accident of a certain
severity. The ignition must be on.
The forward movement of the front
seat occupants is decelerated,
thereby considerably reducing the
risk of injury to the upper body and
head.
9 Warning
Optimum protection is only
provided when the seat is in the
proper position.
Seat position 3 35.
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Page: 45
Seats, restraints 45
Fit the seat belt correctly and
engage securely. Only then is the
airbag able to protect.
Side airbag system
The side airbag system consists of an
airbag in each front seat backrest.
This can be identified by the word
AIRBAG.
The side airbag system is triggered in
the event of an accident of a certain
severity. The ignition must be on.
The risk of injury to the upper body
and pelvis in the event of a side-on
collision is considerably reduced.
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.
Note
Only use protective seat covers that
have been approved for the vehicle.
Be careful not to cover the airbags.
Curtain airbag system
The curtain airbag system consists of
an airbag in the roof frame on each
side. This can be identified by the
word AIRBAG on the roof pillars.
The curtain airbag system is triggered
in the event of an accident of a certain
severity. The ignition must be on.
Page: 46
46 Seats, restraints
The risk of injury to the head in the
event of a side impact is considerably
reduced.
9 Warning
Keep the area in which the airbag
inflates clear of obstructions.

roof frame are only suitable for
hanging up light articles of
clothing, without coat hangers. Do
not keep any items in these
clothes.

Child restraints
Child restraint systems
We recommend the Vauxhall child
restraint system which is tailored
specifically to the vehicle.
When a child restraint system is being
used, pay attention to the following
usage and installation instructions
and also those supplied with the child
restraint system.
Always comply with local or national
regulations. In some countries, the
use of child restraint systems is
forbidden on certain seats.
9 Warning
When using a child restraint
system on the front passenger
seat, the airbag systems for the
front passenger seat must be
deactivated; if not, the triggering of
the airbags poses a risk of fatal
injury to the child.
This is especially the case if rear-
facing child restraint systems are
used on the front passenger seat.
Airbag deactivation 3 46.
Airbag label 3 41.
Selecting the right system
The rear seats are the most
convenient location to fasten a child
restraint system.
Children should travel facing
rearwards in the vehicle as long as
possible. This makes sure that the
child's backbone, which is still very
weak, is under less strain in the event
of an accident.
Suitable are restraint systems that
comply with valid UN ECE
regulations. Check local laws and
regulations for mandatory use of child
restraint systems.
Ensure that the child restraint system
to be installed is compatible with the
vehicle type.
Ensure that the mounting location of
the child restraint system within the
vehicle is correct, see following
tables.
Allow children to enter and exit the
vehicle only on the side facing away
from the traffic.
When the child restraint system is not
in use, secure the seat with a seat belt
or remove it from the vehicle.
Note
Do not stick anything on the child
restraint systems and do not cover
them with any other materials.
A child restraint system which has
been subjected to stress in an
accident must be replaced.
