Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seat-Belt Reminder System

What’s the Benefit?

This system helps occupants remember to use their seat belts—which function as the primary protection feature.

The Feature:

To help increase seat-belt usage, a driver’s and front passenger’s seat-belt reminder has been incorporated into the instrument cluster.

  • After the vehicle is started, a weight sensor detects whether the passenger’s seat is occupied.
  • If the driver or front passenger has not already fastened their seat belt, an icon in the cluster illuminates and a chime sounds as a reminder.
