Seat-Belt Reminder System for All Seating Positions

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 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.
  • If a rear door has been opened, the latching status of the rear seat belts will be displayed.
  • In addition, the display will blink and an alert will sound whenever a rear seat belt is unlatched while driving.
