A front and rear Seat belt reminder system warns the driver when the seat belt of an occupied seat is not fastened or is unfastened during a trip.

Seat belt reminder commences when the vehicle is in motion and the driver's belt is unbuckled. Dependent on market, the warning indicator in the Instrument panel illuminates (see CINTURÓN DE SEGURIDAD (ROJO)), and an audible chime sounds. 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 in the Message centre also indicates which seat belts are fastened at the start of a journey and also when a seat belt is fastened or unfastened during a journey.

Each seating position is represented by a passenger icon, the colour and symbol 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 grey after 30 seconds.

  • Grey - seat belt not fastened.


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

In addition, an audible warning will sound if the driver’s, or any occupied passenger's seat belt is not fastened, or is unfastened during a journey.


If a heavy object is placed on a passenger seat, it may activate the Seat belt reminder feature. It is recommended that the object be placed in the luggage compartment or secured using the seat belt.
