deactivated/activated independently. When deactivating/activating
one seating position, do not buckle the other position as this will
terminate the process.

Read Steps 1 - 4 thoroughly before proceeding with the
deactivation/activation programming procedure.

Note: The driver and front passenger Belt-Minder

௡ features must be

disabled/enabled separately. Both cannot be disable/enabled during the
same key cycle.

The driver and front passenger Belt-Minder

௡ features can be

Before following the procedure, make sure that:
• The parking brake is set.
• The gearshift is in P (Park).
• The ignition is off.

WARNING: While the design allows you to deactivate your

௡, this system is designed to improve your chances of

being safely belted and surviving an accident. We recommend you
leave the Belt-Minder

௡ system activated for yourself and others who

may use the vehicle. To reduce the risk of injury, do not
deactivate/activate the Belt-Minder

௡ feature while driving the vehicle.

1–2 minutes).

warning light turns off.
