Determining if the Personal Safety System is operational

Determining if the Personal Safety System is operational  - How does the Personal Safety System work? - Personal safety system - Seating and Safety Restraints - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

The Personal Safety System uses a warning light in the instrument cluster or a back-up tone to indicate the condition of the system. Refer to the Warning light and chimes section in the Instrument Cluster chapter. Routine maintenance of the Personal Safety System is not required.

The Restraints Control Module (RCM) monitors its own internal circuits and the circuits for the airbag supplemental restraints, crash sensor(s), safety belt pretensioners, front safety belt buckle sensors, driver seat position sensor, and front passenger sensing system. In addition, the RCM also monitors the restraints warning light in the instrument cluster.

A difficulty with the system is indicated by one or more of the following.

The warning light will either flash or stay lit.

The warning light will not illuminate immediately after ignition is turned on.

A series of five beeps will be heard. The tone pattern will repeat periodically until the problem and warning light are repaired.

If any of these things happen, even intermittently, have the Personal Safety System serviced at an authorized dealer immediately. Unless serviced, the system may not function properly in the event of a collision.
