SEAT BELT REMINDER

Seat belt reminder commences when the vehicle is in motion and the driver's belt is unbuckled. Dependent on the market, an audible chime sounds and the warning indicator in the Instrument panel illuminates (see SEAT BELT (RED)). The visual and audible warnings applicable to the Seat belt reminder feature are market dependent, to meet individual market requirements. The warning signals given may also change, depending on whether the vehicle is stationary or when the vehicle's speed exceeds a predetermined threshold. In certain markets, the Seat belt reminder feature also applies to the passenger seat.

A graphic displayed in the Message center also indicates which seat belts are fastened at the start of a trip and when a seat belt is fastened or unfastened during a trip.

Each seating position is represented by a passenger icon, the color of which indicates the seat belt status:

  • Tick - seat belt in the indicated position is fastened.

  • Cross - seat belt in the indicated position has been unfastened while the vehicle's ignition is on. This indicator will turn gray after 30 seconds.

  • Gray - seat belt not fastened.

NOTES

The indicators will be displayed for 30 seconds each time there is a status change, e.g., a seat belt is unfastened or fastened or a door is opened and then closed.

In addition, an audible warning will sound under the following conditions:

  • The driver’s or passenger’s seat belt is not fastened or is unfastened, while the vehicle is moving forwards.

NOTES

If a heavy object is placed on the passenger seat, it may activate the Seat belt reminder feature. It is recommended that any objects on the passenger seat are secured using the seat belt.

NOTES

Although not advisable, it is possible to disable the Seat belt reminder function. Please see your Dealer/Authorized Repairer to disable or re-instate the function.
