Land Rover Discovery: Disabling the passenger airbag

(Not Australia)

Note: Disabling the passenger airbag is market dependent.

The passenger's front airbag can be switched on and off, using the interactive controls in the Instrument panel when the vehicle is stationary

  • The passenger airbag should be disabled when a child restraint is fitted to the front passenger seat.
  • Crash test data and statistics show that the safest place for a child to be restrained is in a child seat correctly fitted to the vehicle's rear seat.
  • Do not use a child restraint on a seat protected by an operational airbag in front of it. Doing so presents a high risk of death or serious injury to the child in the event of an accident.

Select Passenger Airbag from the Vehicle Set-Up menu, located in the Main Menu.

The displayed text and diagram will show the current Passenger Airbag On or Off status. Select Change Setting to choose either On or Off.

Disabling the passenger airbag

An airbag status indicator lamp, mounted in the overhead control panel (as illustrated), will display the operational status of the passenger airbag, as shown in the following table:

* Displays for 60 seconds, then extinguishes.

Note: The Instrument panel will also display a warning for 4 seconds every time the ignition is switched on.

  • When checking the operational status of the front passenger airbag, make sure the ignition is switched on and the warning lamp bulb check period of 8 seconds has elapsed.
  • As soon as the child seat is removed from the front passenger seat, the airbag must be switched on. Failure to do so will put any front seat passengers at greater risk of death or serious injury in the event of an accident.
  • Do not fit a child restraint to the front passenger seat if the airbag warning lamp illuminates continuously with the ignition on.
  • The passenger airbag must be disabled when a rearward-facing child restraint is fitted to the front passenger seat.
