What does the Seat Belt Reminder indicator mean on the dash?
A number of lights on the dash of your car are designed to provide you with important information. The Seat Belt Reminder indicator is a prime example. Here’s what you need to know:
The light will come on if the driver hasn’t buckled up.
The light will come on if the front passenger hasn’t buckled up.
The light will stay on and a chime will sound if you drive without buckling up (either/both driver and passenger).
If the light comes on or stays on after the front passenger has buckled up, it might indicate a problem with one of the sensors and your car should be inspected.
