The passenger frontal air bag may not deploy as needed in a crash due to a fault within the Occupant Classification System (OCS). The OCS may not properly detect an adult in the passenger front seat, instead classifying the passenger as a child. When the OCS does this, it prevents the passenger frontal air bag from deploying, attempting to protect child occupants. As a result, there is an increased risk of injury to adult passengers.
