Hyundai Tucson (NX4) 2022-2023 Owner's Manual / Seats & Safety System / Seat Belts / Seat Belt Restraint System / Pretensioner seat belt (for driver and front passenger seat)

1: Retractor pretensioner,
2: Emergency fastening device (for driver’s seat only)

Your vehicle is equipped with driver’s Pretensioner seat belts (Retractor Pretensioner and Emergency Fastening Device System). The pretensioner makes sure the driver's and front passenger's seat belt fits tightly against your body in certain frontal or side collision(s). The Emergency Fastening Device System may be activated in some collisions where the frontal collision(s) is severe enough, together with the airbags.

When the vehicle stops suddenly, or if you try to lean forward too quickly, the seat belt retractor locks in place. In some frontal collisions, the pretensioner activates and pulls the seat belt against your body.


To prevent serious injury or death:


Do not touch the pretensioner seat belt assemblies for several minutes after they have been activated. When the pretensioner seat belt mechanism deploys during a collision, the pretensioner can become hot and can burn you.


Have the system serviced by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer. Body work on the front of the vehicle may damage the pretensioner seat belt system.

The Pre-Tensioner Seat Belt System consists mainly of the following components. Their locations are shown in the illustration above:

1 SRS airbag warning light 2 Retractor pretensioner 3 SRS control module 4 Emergency fastening device

The sensor that activates the SRS control module is connected with the pretensioner seat belt. The SRS airbag warning light on the instrument cluster illuminates for about 3-6 seconds after the ignition switch is in the ON position, and then it turns off.

If the pretensioner is not working properly, the warning light illuminates even if the SRS airbag is not malfunctioning. If the warning light does not illuminate when starting the engine or stays illuminated or illuminates while driving, have the pretensioner seat belts and/or SRS control module inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer as soon as possible.
