Ford Explorer: Personal Safety System™

Ford Explorer 2020-2021 Owners Manual / Personal Safety System™

This system provides an improved overall level of frontal crash protection to front seat occupants and is designed to help further reduce the risk of airbag-related injuries. The system analyzes different occupant conditions and crash severity before activating the appropriate safety devices to help better protect occupants in a variety of frontal crash situations.

Your vehicle's Personal Safety System consists of:

  • Driver and passenger dual-stage airbag supplemental restraints.
  • Front seat outermost seatbelts with pretensioners, energy management retractors and seatbelt usage sensors.
  • Front passenger sensing system.
  • Passenger airbag off and on indicators.
  • Front crash severity sensors.
  • Restraints control module with impact and safing sensors.
  • Restraint system warning light and tone.
  • The electrical wiring for the airbags, crash sensors, seatbelt pretensioners, front seatbelt usage sensors, front passenger sensing system and indicator lights.

How Does the Personal Safety System Work?

The Personal Safety System can adapt the deployment strategy of the safety devices according to crash severity and occupant conditions. A collection of crash and occupant sensors provides information to the restraints control module. During a crash, the restraints control module may deploy the seatbelt pretensioners, one or both stages of the dual-stage airbags based on crash severity and occupant conditions.
