The driver and front passenger seat belts are not fastened (if the front passenger seat is occupied). Fasten seat belts.
There are items on the front passenger seat. Remove items from the front passenger seat and stow them safely.

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

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

The seat belt warning lamp does not go out until the driver and front passenger fasten their seat belts while the ignition is switched on.

WARNING

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