Do not allow any children to stand up 
or kneel on either rear or front seats. 
Otherwise child could suffer serious 
injury or death during emergency 
braking or a crash. Also, do not let the 
child sit on your lap. Holding a child in 
your arms does not provide sufficient 
restraint.
Pregnant woman. If you are pregnant, 
BYD recommends consult with your 
doctor for specific suggestion each 
time. Keep the lap belt as low as 
possible across the hips and not on the 
waist.
Injured person. BYD recommends to 
wear a seat belt .Depending on the 
injury,first check with your doctor for 
specific suggestion.

WARNING

The seat belts provided for your 
vehicle are designed for people of 
adult size, large enough to properly 
wear them If the child isn’t large 
enough to properly wear the vihicle’s 
seat belt, it is not safty for the child 
on the vehicle. 

Follow the instructions below when 
using seat belt: 
● One seat belt shall be applied to one 
passenger only. It’s not allowed that 
two or more passengers share one 
seat belt—even for children.
●  Do  not  over  slant  the  seat  back. 
The seat belt provides the maximum 
protection when the seat back is in the 
upright position.(Refer to instructions 
on seat adjustment).

●Do not damaging the belt or other 
parts of the seat belt. Keep them from

—Fastening front and rear seat belts

3-point Seat Belt

 

Adjust the seat to desire position and 
sit up straight and well back in the 
seat. To fasten your belt, pull it out from 
the retractor and insert the tab into the 
buckle.

Tug on the belt to make sure the belt 
is securely latched .Check that the belt 
is not twisted, A twisted belt can cause 
serious injuries in a crash. 
The seat belt length automatically 
adjusts to your size and the seat 
position.
The retractor will lock the belt during a
sudden stop or in crash. It also may
lock if you lean forward too quickly. A
slow, easy move will be allowed, and 
you can move around freely.
If the seat belt cannot be pulled out of 
the retractor, firmly pull the belt and 
release it.  The seat belt will be able to 
pull out from the retractor.

WARNING

 

y

After inserting the tab, make sure 

the belt is securely latched and 
that the belt is not twisted.

 

y

Do not insert coins, clips, and 

other little things. In the buckle 
as this may prevent you from 
properly latching the tab and 
buckle.

 

y

If the seat belt does not function 

normally, immediately contact 
your BYD authorized dealer. Do 
not use the seat until the seat 
belt is repaired, because it cannot 
protect an occupant from injury.

Adjust the position of the lap and
shoulder belts.
Position the lap belt as low as possible
across your hips—not on your waist, 
then pull up on the shoulder part of 
the belt so the lap part fits snugly . 
This lets your strong pelvic bones take 
the force of a crash and reduces the 
chance of internal injuries.

Always make sure the shoulder 

belt is positioned across the 
center of your shoulder. The belt 
should be kept away from your 
neck and not cross your arm 
instead of your shoulder. Failure 
to do so could reduce the amount 
of protection in an accident 
and cause serious injuries in a 
collision.

injury by inflating. The SRS front 
airbags reduce injuries mainly to the 
driver’s or front passenger’s head or 
chest caused by hitting the vehicle 
interior.
The front passenger airbag is activated 
even with no passenger in the front 
seat.
SRS is an auxiliary device for seat belt, 
which can protect passengers’ head 
and chest from serious injury in severe 
front crashes.
SRS cannot supersede seat belts and 
is only a part of the whole passive 
safety protection system of the vehicle. 
Note that SRS has the best protection 
performance only when working 
together with fastened seat belts. For 
the safety of yourself and your family, 
please pay special attention to the 
“warning” and “Notice” in this section.

WARNING

 

y

The SRS airbag system is 

designed only as a supplement 
to the primary protection of the 
driver side and front passenger 
side seat belt systems .The front 
seat occupants can be killed or 
seriously injured by the inflating 
airbags if they do not wear the 
available seat belts properly. 
During sudden braking just 
before a crash, an unrestrained 
driver or front passenger can fall 
forward into direct contact with 
or close proximity to the airbag 
which may then deploy during 
the collision.To ensure maximum 
protection in an accident, the 
driver and all passengers in the 
vehicle must wear their seat belts

properly. Wearing a seat belt during 
an accident reduces the chances 
of death or serious injury or being 
thrown out of the vehicle.

restrained infants and children 
can be killed or seriously injured 
by the deploying front airbags. 
An infant or child who is too 
small to use a seat belt should 
be properly secured using a child 
restraint system. BYD strongly 
recommends that all infants and 
children be placed in the rear 
seat of the vehicle and properly 
restrained. The rear seat is the 
safest for infants and children. 

 

y

Please keep sitting in correct 

posture so that you can get the 
maximum protective effect of the 
seat belt and SRS.

y

Do not dismount parts of SRS 

without permission.

The airbag SRS is designed to activate 
when the vehicle sustains sufficient 
longitudinal deceleration in severe 
(usually frontal) collisions where the 
forward deceleration of the vehicle 
exceeds the designed threshold level.
The airbags did not inflate in a collision 
does not mean that something is wrong 
with the system . Rather, it means the 
forces were not sufficient to cause 
activation. Airbags can inflate in frontal 
and near frontal collisions, but not 
rollover, side impact, or rear impacts.
Always wear your seat belts properly.

System Components

The SRS consists of the following 
components and their locations are 
shown in the illustration: 
1. SRS warning light
2. Airbag module for front passenger ( 
airbag and inflator)
3. SRS electronic control unit (ECU)
4. Airbag module for driver (airbag and 
inflator)
5. Impact sensor 

SRS ECU consists of a safing sensor 
and airbag sensor. 

SRS Airbag Warning Indicator 

SRS Airbag system is monitored by 
ECU  and  integrated  self-diagnosis 
function. Its status is indicated by 
warning indicator on the instrument 
panel. 
●Airbag  warning  light  will  be  on  for 
about 5 seconds after turning on 
ignition switch ,which indicates that the 
system is normal.
This warning indicator monitors SRS 
airbag ECU, impact sensor, inflator, 
warning light, connecting wire and 
power supply. (For details, please refer 
to “Maintenance Indicator lights and 
Warning Buzzer” in Section 1-5)

WARNING

If any of the following 

conditions, airbag system may 
have Malfunction troubles:  

 

y

The indicator is not on when 

turning on the ignition switch.

 

y

Turn on the ignition switch, and 5 

seconds later, the warning light 
remains on or it flashes and goes 
on again after going out. 

 

y

The indicator is on after turning 

off the ignition switch.

 

y

The indicator comes on or flashes 

while driving.

WARNING

If any SRS trouble indicated by 
warning light, please contact your 
BYD authorized dealer for inspection 
as soon as possible. Otherwise, the 
airbag system can not work properly 
in case of accident

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.

F3DM Owner’s Manual

Protection Principle of SRS Airbag
If an impact results in a forward 
deceleration beyond the designed 
threshold level , the system triggers 
the airbag inflators. At this time a 
chemical reaction in the inflators very 
quickly fills the airbags with non–toxic 
gas to help restrain the froward motion 
of the occupants. The front airbags 
then quickly deflate, so that there is 
no obstruction of the driver’s vision 
and it should be necessary to continue 
driving. When the airbags inflate, it is 
normal to notice a smoke-like, powdery 
residue or smell the burnt propellant. 
They produce a loud noise and release 
some smoke and residue along with 
non–toxic gas. This does not indicate a 
fire. This smoke may remain inside the 
vehicle for some time, and may cause 
some minor irritation to the eyes, skin 
or breathing. Be sure to wash off any 

residue as soon as possible to prevent 
any potential skin irritation with soap 
and water. You shall exit the vehicle 
safely immediately if available.
While the system can reduce serious 
injuries, it may also cause minor 
abrasions, swelling or temporary 
hearing loss. Because airbags must 
inflate rapidly and with considerable 
force, there is the risk of death or 
serious injuries such as fractures, 
facial and eye injuries or internal 
injuries, particularly to occupants who 
are not properly restrained or are other 
out of position at the time of airbag 
deployment. Thus, it is extremely 
important that occupants be properly 
restrained as far away from the airbag 
cover as possible while maintaining 
vehicle control.
Parts of the airbag module (steering 
wheel hub, airbag cover and inflator) 

may be hot for several minutes 
after deployment, so do not touch! 
The airbags inflate only once. The 
windshield may be damaged by the 
inflating airbag.

WARNING

Sitting too close to a front airbag 
can result in serious injury or death 
if the front airbags inflate.
BYD strongly recommends that:

 

y

The driver sit as far back as 

possible from the steering wheel 
while still maintaining control of 
the vehicle.

 

y

The front passenger sit as 

far back as possible from the 
dashboard.

 

y

All vehicle occupants be properly 

restrained using the available 
seat belts.

WARNING

Do not sit on the edge of the seat
or lean against the dashboard when 
the vehicle is in use, since the front 
airbags inflate with considerable 
speed and force. Otherwise, you 
may be killed or seriously injured. 
Sit up straight and well back in the 
seat, and always use your seat belt 
properly.

WARNING

Do not allow a child to stand up or
to kneel on the front passenger
seat, since the front airbag inflates 
with considerable speed and force. 
Otherwise, the child may be killed 
or seriously injured.
_ Do not hold a child on your lap or 
in your arms. 

WARNING

Do not put anything on or over the 
airbag module . Placing objects on 
or over the airbag inflation area may 
cause those objects to be propelled 
by the airbag into your face and 
torso causing serious injury.

WARNING

 

y

SRS is designed toonly match 

specified certain vehicle models, 
any variation in suspension, 
tire size, bumper, chassis and 
other original equipments may 
adversely affect the function 
of SRS. In addition, it is strictly 
prohibited to apply any airbag 
parts to other vehicle models; 
otherwise it might lead to SRS 
failure, resulting in personal 
injuries.

 

y

During driving, please wear the 

seat belt properly and maintain a 
correct sitting posture. Otherwise, 
airbag deployment may increase 
the risk of injuries in accidents.

 

y

It’s very important for the driver to 

maintain a distance of at least 

25cm between the chest and 
the steering wheel, which allows 
maximum protection when the 
airbag system is triggered. That 
is to say, it’s necessary to adjust 
the front seats and the head 
restrain according to the figure 
of each occupant; in addition, 
the driver’s arms shall only bend 
slightly, stretching nearly straight.

 

y

Do not paste or cover the surface 

of the steering wheel lid or the 
surface near the airbag on the 
right of the instrument panel with 
any objects; and do not make 
any other decorative treatment at 
such places. These two places 
shall be cleaned only with dry 
or slightly wetted cloth, and it 
is prohibited to knock at such 
places violently.

 

y

Never allow children to sit on the 

front seat without protection. If 
a collision triggers the air bag, 
the child passengers may get 
seriously injured or even killed.

 

y

Don’t leave any person, a nimal 

or object in the deployment range 
of driver/front seat passenger air 
bag. It is extremely dangerous 
for an adult to hold a child on the 
lap.

 

y

Any accessories, such as phone 

holder, cup holder and ashtray, 
shall not be installed on airbag 
decoration lid or within airbag 
deployment range. Otherwise, 
risk of injury will be increased in 
the accident when SRS airbag is 
triggered.

see the side of your vehicle in the 
mirror.
