Ford Explorer: Supplementary Restraints System / Driver and Passenger Knee Airbags

Ford Explorer 2020-2022 Owners Manual / Supplementary Restraints System / Driver and Passenger Knee Airbags

Driver and passenger knee airbags are located under or within the instrument panel. During a crash, the restraints control module may activate the driver and passenger knee airbags (individually or both) based on crash severity and respective occupant conditions. Under certain crash and occupant conditions, the driver and passenger knee airbags may deploy (individually or both) but the corresponding front airbag may not activate. As with front and side airbags, it is important to be properly seated and restrained to reduce the risk of death or serious injury.

Make sure the knee airbags are operating properly. See Crash Sensors and Airbag Indicator.
