The front seat can be adjusted by using the control switches located on the doors. Before driving, adjust the seat to the proper position so as to easily control the steering wheel, pedals and switches on the instrument panel.

CAUTION

  • The power seat is driven by electric motors. Stop the motor operation once the adjustment is completed. Excessive operation may damage the electrical equipment.

  • When in operation, the power seat consumes a large amount of electrical power. To prevent unnecessary battery drain, dont adjust the power seat longer than necessary while the engine is not running.

The driver's and front passenger's seats are equipped with a headrest for the occupant's safety and comfort.

The headrest not only provides comfort for the driver and front passenger, but also helps to protect the head and neck in the event of a collision.

WARNING

  • For maximum effectiveness in case of an accident, the headrest should be adjusted so the middle of the headrest is at the same height as the center of gravity of an occupant's head. Generally, the center of gravity of most people's head is similar with the height of the top of their eyes. Also, adjust the headrest as close to your head as possible. For this reason, the use of a cushion that holds the body away from the seatback is not recommended.

  • Do not operate the vehicle with the headrests removed as severe injury to the occupants may occur in the event of an accident. Headrests may provide protection against neck injuries when properly adjusted.

  • Do not adjust the headrest position of the driver's seat while the vehicle is in motion.

Do not reinstall the headrest at the incorrect position other than the highest position and do not force it. It causes damage to the headrest.

WARNING

  • If you don't install the headrest securely, the active headrest may not operate normally. When reinstalling the headrest, install it securely as noted in the procedures.

  • Always make sure the headrest locks into position after reinstalling and adjusting it properly.

  • Do not operate the vehicle with the headrests removed as severe injury to the occupants may occur in the event of an accident. Headrests may provide protection against neck injuries when properly adjusted.

Electronic active headrest

The electronic active headrest is designed to trigger the headrest forward and


The electronic active headrest is designed to trigger the headrest forward and upward when impact sensor detects a rear impact. This helps to prevent the driver's and front passengers heads from moving backward and thus helps minimize neck injuries.

CAUTION

The active headrest is a safety device to reduce injuries from a rear impact. Do not hit or pull the headrest intentionally.

Climate control system seat (if equipped)

This feature cools or warms the front seats by blowing air through small vent


This feature cools or warms the front seats by blowing air through small vent hole on the surface of the seats and seatbacks.

While the engine is running, push the rear portion of the switch to cool or warm the driver's seat or the front passenger's seat.

When the operation of the climate control system seat is not needed, keep the switches in the OFF position.

  • Each time you push the switch, the airflow changes as follows:


  • When pressing the switch for more than 1.5 seconds with the climate control system operating, the climate control system seat will turn OFF.

  • The climate control system seat defaults to the OFF position whenever the Engine Start/Stop Button is turned to the ON position.

  • With the climate control system seat ON to cool or warm the front seats, the system turns off or on automatically depending on the seat temperature.

CAUTION

  • The climate control system seat is a supplementary cooling and warming system. Use the climate control seat when the climate control system is on. Using the climate control seat for prolonged periods of time with the climate control system off could cause the climate control seat performance to be reduced.

  • When cleaning the seats, do not use an organic solvent such as thinner, benzene, alcohol and gasoline. Doing so may damage the surface of the seats.

  • Do not spill liquid such as water or beverages on the surface of the front seats and seatbacks, or the air vent holes may be blocked and prevented from working properly.

  • Do not place materials such as plastic bags or newspapers under the seats. The air vent may not work properly as the air intake can be blocked.

  • When the air vent does not operate, restart the vehicle. If there is no change, we recommend that the system be inspected by an authorized EQUUS dealer.
