Safety Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating


Preparation

Apply the parking brake before deactivating/activating the belt minder.[/ol]

Place the gear selector lever in PARK or NEUTRAL (manual transaxle).[/ol]

Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.[/ol]

Close all the vehicle doors.[/ol]

Unbuckle the driver safety belt.[/ol]

Place the parking lamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position.[/ol]

Deactivating/Activating

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)[/ol]

Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately 1 to 2 minutes).[/ol]
3. NOTE: Steps 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off.
For seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt in the unbuckled state. After this step, the air bar warning indicator illuminates for 3 seconds.

Within 10 seconds after the air bar warning indicator turns off, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.

This disables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently enabled. As confirmation, the air bar warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
This enables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently disabled. As confirmation, the air bag warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds followed by another flash sequence of 4 times per second for 3 seconds.[/ul][/ol]

After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.[/ol]

Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating

Preparation

Before deactivating/activating the belt minder, set the parking brake.
Place gearshift in P (Park) (automatic transmission) or the neutral position (manual transmission).
Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
Close all the vehicle doors.
Unbuckle the driver's safety belt.
Place the parklamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position. (If vehicle is equipped with Autolamps, this will not affect the procedure.)

Deactivating/Activating

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)
Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately one to two minutes).
NOTE: Steps 3 through 5 must be completed within 60 seconds or the procedure must be repeated.

Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times, ending with the safety belt unbuckled. This portion of the procedure can be done before or during belt minder warning activation.
Turn the parklamps/headlamps on then off.
Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times ending with the safety belt unbuckled. After this step the safety belt warning lamp will be illuminated for three seconds.
Within seven seconds of the safety belt warning lamp turning off, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt. This will enable the belt minder if disabled or disable belt minder is enabled.
The following sequence of events confirm the belt minder is enabled:
flashing of the safety belt warning belt lamp four times per second for three seconds
three seconds with the safety belt lamp off
flashing the safety belt lamp four times per second for three seconds again
The safety belt lamp flashing four times per second for three seconds provides confirmation of belt minder disabled.
After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.
