Vehicles with the keyless system

If the engine is running and a passive key is no longer detected within the vehicle interior, a warning chime will sound as soon as the door is closed.

Lights on

A warning chime will sound if the drivers door is opened with the exterior lights switched on and the ignition switched off.

Low fuel

A warning chime will sound when the low fuel warning lamp illuminates.

Seat belt reminder

WARNINGS:
The seat belt reminder remains in stand-by mode when the front seat belts have been fastened. It will be reactivated if either seat belt is unfastened.

Do not sit on top of a fastened seat belt to prevent the seat belt reminder from coming on. The occupant protection system will only provide optimum protection when you use the seat belt properly.

When the vehicles speed exceeds the pre-determined limit, a warning chime will sound if either of the front seat belts are unfastened. The chime will stop after five minutes.
