SRS Airbag Triggering Conditions
The airbag is triggered under the
following conditions: severe frontal
crashes and some special crashes.
In case of minor front collision, side
collision, but it won’t be triggered by
rear collision or roll-over, airbag system
generally won’t be triggered.. In such
accidents, fastening the seat belt, can
protect the driver and passenger in the
normal way.
The decisive factor for triggering SRS
is the result of judgment through
comprehensive intelligent comparison
of the deceleration curve, which is
produced in a collision and acquired by
the electronic control unit (ECU), with
the set value. If the signals, such as
deceleration, produced and detected
in the collision is lower than the set
reference value in the ECU, the airbag
won’t be triggered even though the car
may have been severely deformed in
the accident.
BYD SRS ECU on setting has taken
various common misuse and domestic
road conditions into full consideration.
However, as causes and conditions
of crashes are widely variable, for the
sake of your safety, please strictly
abide by this manual to use the vehicle
correctly and avoid misuse; otherwise,
the airbag may be incapacity.
