The seat belt reminder in the rear seat has two additional functions:

  • It provides information about which seat belts are fastened in the rear seat. A message will appear in the information display when a belt is being used. This message will disappear after approximately 6 seconds or can be erased by pressing the READ button on the left steering wheel lever.
  • It also provides a reminder if one of the occupants of the rear seat has unbuckled his/her seat belt while the vehicle is in motion. A visual and audible signal will be given. These signals will stop when the seat belt has been re-buckled or can be stopped by pressing the READ button.
  • The message Unbelted in rear seat will appear in the information display if one of the rear doors has been opened.

The message in the information display can always be accessed, even if it has been erased, by pressing the READ button to display stored messages.
