Unbelted occupants will be reminded to fasten their seatbelt by means of an audio and visual reminder.
The audio reminder is speed dependent, and in some cases time dependent. The visual reminder is located in the roof console and in the combined instrument panel.
Child seats are not covered by the seatbelt reminder system.
The seatbelt reminder in the rear seat has two subfunctions:
- Provides information on which seatbelts are being used in the rear seat. A message appears in the combined instrument panel when the seatbelts are in use, or if one of the rear doors has been opened. The message is acknowledged automatically after approximately 30 seconds driving or after pressing the indicator stalkOK button. If anyone is unbelted then the message can only be acknowledged manually by pressing the indicator stalk OK button.
- Provides a warning if one of the rear seatbelts is unfastened during travel. This warning takes the form of a message in the combined instrument panel along with the audio/visual signal. The warning stops when the seatbelt is re-fastened, or it can also be acknowledged manually by pressing the OK button.
The combined instrument panel's information display shows which seatbelts are in use. This information is always available.
