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 front passenger seat.

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

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

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

  • Cross/red - seat belt, in the indicated position, has been unfastened while the vehicle's ignition is on. The indicator turns gray after 30 seconds.

  • Gray - seat belt not fastened.


The indicators are 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 sounds under the following conditions:

  • The seat belt of an occupied front seat is not fastened, or is unfastened during a trip.

  • A rear seat belt is unfastened.


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