  3. Remove the head restraint.
  4. Place the child-restraint system on the seat without putting your weight on the seat and fasten the seat belt. See the manufacturer’s instructions on the child-restraint system for belt routing instructions.
  5. To get the retractor into the automatic locking mode, pull the shoulder belt portion of the seat belt until the entire length of the belt is out of the retractor.
  6. Push the child-restraint system firmly into the vehicle seat. Be sure the belt retracts as snugly as possible. A clicking noise from the retractor will be heard during retraction if the system is in automatic locking mode. If the belt does not lock the seat down tight, repeat the previous step and also this one.

    Inspect this function before each use of the child-restraint system. You should not be able to pull the shoulder belt out of the retractor while the system is in the automatic locking mode. When you remove the childrestraint system, be sure the belt fully retracts to return the system to emergency locking mode before occupants use the seat belts.

  7. Seat your child safely in the child-restraint system and secure the child according to the instructions from the child-restraint system manufacturer.
  8. Switch the ignition ON and make sure the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light illuminates after installing a child-restraint system on the front passenger seat.

    If the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light does not illuminate, remove the childrestraint system, switch the ignition to OFF, and then reinstall the child-restraint system.

Follow the child-restraint system manufacturer’s instructions carefully.

Depending on the type of child-restraint system, it may not employ seat belts which are in automatic locking mode.

WARNING

Do not seat a child in a child-restraint system on the front passenger seat if the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light does not illuminate

While it is always better to install any child-restraint system on the rear seat, it is imperative that a child-restraint system ONLY be used on the front passenger seat if the deactivation indicator light illuminates when the child is seated in the child-restraint system. Seating a child in a childrestraint system installed on the front passenger seat with the front passenger air bag deactivation indicator light not illuminated is dangerous. If this indicator light does not illuminate, this means that the front passenger front and side air bags, and seat belt pretensioners are ready for deployment. If an accident were to deploy an air bag, a child in a child-restraint system sitting in the front passenger seat could be seriously injured or killed. If the indicator light does not illuminate after seating a child in a child-restraint system on the front passenger seat, seat a child in a child-restraint system on the rear seat and consult your Toyota dealer as soon as possible.
