Security systems

Seat belts

It is necessary to be fastened by seat belts before each trip.

Fastening: at the time of fastening the lock of a belt has to be locked with the heard click.

Otstegivaniye: having pressed the red button, release a fastener from the lock and hold a tape of a belt, sending it to the involving device.

Adjustment of the top point of fastening of a belt on growth of sitting happens automatically in the course of longitudinal adjustment of a seat.

The seat belt is blocked at:
- tape pulling breakthrough
- sharp braking or acceleration
- passing of turns
- strong list of the car

Natyazhitel of a belt

Natyazhitel of a belt provides much the best prileganiye of a belt to a body of the person during collision and allows to hold reliably it on a seat. For fractions of a second the belt lock under the influence of pressure of gas moves back, at the same time pulling diagonal and zone belts. Thereby reliable protection against slipping of the person under a zone belt is provided.

For the sake of your safety a request to observe the instructions given below on use of a belt, otherwise it will not be able to execute the protective function completely. The request to inform all your satellites on need of observance of instructions for use seat belts.

By one seat belt only one person always has to be fastened. During the movement of the car of chest and juvenile children it is impossible to hold on a lap at adult passengers.

The tape of a belt has to be hardly tense and without twisting to adjoin to a breast and a belt, and under it in pockets of clothes there should not be firm or fragile objects. The belt should not cover a neck. Its jamming or friction about keen edges is inadmissible.

The belt has to adjoin to a body whenever possible densely; therefore the clothes should not be muffling up. Improve a belt in a shoulder zone more often. Otherwise at head-on collisions leaky adjacent zone belt can slide off on hips up and injure the lower part of a stomach. Because of the increased gap between a belt and a body the holding effect of a belt is implemented with delay.

By seat belts pregnant women always have to be fastened, watching at the same time, in particular, that the zone strap covered hips from below and did not press on a stomach.

You do not enter changes into the system of seat belts.

Safe transportation of children *

For children aged up to 12 years and less than 150 cm in height the special resolved systems for safe transportation have to be used.

Babies up to 9 months can be carried in the cradles established on a back seat against the course of the movement and fixed by serial seat belts.

For each CTOA BMW age group will offer the corresponding systems for safe transportation of children.

It is inadmissible to install systems for safe transportation of children on a front passenger seat, otherwise at operation of an inflatable safety cushion getting injured is possible.

It is inadmissible to make changes to a design of systems for transportation of children, otherwise they will not be able to execute the protective function completely.

Built-in children's seats *

These two children's seats which are built in a back seat and conforming to the legislative requirements developed on the basis of the directive of the EU by R-44 intend for children from 3 to 12 years (from 15 to 38 kg).

For children from 9 months to 3.5 years (from 9 to 18 kg) these seats should be used in a combination to a special back and a travmozashchitny table which can be got on CTOA BMW.

Promotion of a seat
Undertake a forward part of a back seat and pull it up and slightly back, as shown an arrow.

Lowering of a seat
Having undertaken a loop, pull forward and down, as shown an arrow.

Observe the instructions on use of seat belts given above, differently they will not be able to execute the protective function.

Inflatable Safety Cushions (ISC)

1 — forward safety cushions for the driver and the passenger
2 — side safety cushions *

Protective action

Forward NPB protect the driver and the forward passenger at head-on collision when protective action only of one seat belts is insufficient. Side NPB provide protection at side blows.

In case of accident only NPB located on the party in which the blow is necessary works.

On an illustration the directions of blows to which NPB react are shown. Side protection is provided only at a car complete set with side safety cushions.

Inertial sensors constantly control the acceleration forces operating on the car. If as a result of collision the driver and the passenger are affected by such force of acceleration with which only one seat belts cannot provide sufficient protection any more, then in parallel gas generators inflatable to a safety cushion for the driver and the forward passenger with each other work. However NPB for the forward passenger is put in action only in case the sensor installed in a seat distinguishes that on it really someone sits.

In case of side crash if necessary side NPB on that party in which the blow had works.

NPB which are located under safety facings of a steering wheel, the forward panel and under side facings of forward doors are developed, for several milliseconds being filled with gas. At the same time they break off safety facing in in advance defined places.

Bystry deployment which is necessary for normal functioning of NPB is followed by ignition cotton and noise from inflation which, however, against the background of accident just are not perceived. The gas necessary for inflation of NPB does not constitute any danger and after a while disappears together with the formed smoke.

All process develops during the one twentieth fraction of a second.

Control lamp of NPB

The lamp on an instrument guard signals about readiness of system for work after turn of the ignition key in situation 1.

The system is ready to work:
The control lamp lights up for some time then dies away.

The system is faulty:
The control lamp does not light up.
Control lamp, having lit up for a while, dies away and again lights up.

In case of malfunction of system there is a danger that at collision with an obstacle it will not work even if accident will be rather heavy.
The request immediately to address on CTOA BMW for check of system.

The control lamp of inflatable safety cushions burns also at operation of a natyazhitel of a belt.

For the sake of your safety a request to observe the instructions given below concerning safety cushions, otherwise they will not be able to execute the protective function completely. The request to inform all your satellites on need of observance of the instructions concerning inflatable safety cushions.

Existence of inflatable pillows does not exempt from need of fastening by a belt as NPB represent only one of means of ensuring of safety. At insignificant failures, capsizing of the car and at blow in a back part and if the car is not equipped with side NPB, then and at blows in side parts you are protected only by a seat belt.

Settle down on a seat as it is more convenient to you, but at the same time as it is possible further from a steering wheel, the forward panel or a door.

Always you hold a steering wheel for a rim. Non-compliance with this rule can lead to injuries of brushes or forearms. Between a safety cushion and the person protected by it there should not be foreign objects. Facing of NPB for the forward passenger cannot be used as the shelf for small things.

Safety facing of a steering wheel, the forward panel and side upholstery of doors cannot be pasted over with anything, to fit or to alter somehow.

It is inadmissible to strengthen systems for safe transportation of children on a front passenger seat. Transportation of children is younger than 12 years follows only on a back seat.

Even at observance of all instructions under certain circumstances getting injured of the person, the inflatable safety cushions caused by operation is not excluded. Sensitive passengers have ignition cotton and noise in the course of inflation of pillows can cause short-term decrease in hearing.

Locking of children in the car

Having inserted a key into a cut in a back door, turn it outside.

Now it will be impossible to open a door from salon.
