The driver seat belt and, if the front passenger seat is occupied, the front passenger seat belt are not fastened. Fasten seat belts.
There are objects on the front passenger seat. Remove objects from the front passenger seat and stow them safely.

Several warning and indicator lamps will light up briefly as a functional check when the ignition is switched on. They will switch off after a few seconds.

A signal tone will be given for a few seconds if the seat belts are not fastened as the car pulls off and reaches a speed of more than approximately 25 km/h (15 mph), or if the seat belts are unfastened while the vehicle is in motion. The warning lamp will also flash.

When the ignition is switched on, the warning lamp will not go out until the driver and front passenger fasten their seat belts.

WARNING

Incorrectly fastened or unfastened seat belts increase the risk of severe or fatal injuries. Seat belts only offer the optimum level of protection when they are used properly.
