How To

REAR SEAT REMINDER

Rear Seat Reminder alerts you to look in your rear seat before exiting your vehicle under certain conditions. This feature is activated by opening and closing a second-row rear door just before or during vehicle use.


ABOUT REAR SEAT REMINDER

Rear Seat Reminder is intended to activate when a second-row door (not including the liftgate/hatch) is opened while the vehicle is turned ON or up to 10 minutes before the vehicle is turned ON. Under these circumstances, when the vehicle is then turned OFF, the feature triggers the reminder to check your rear seat.

The reminder consists of five audible chimes accompanied by a message in the Driver Information Center (DIC) that reads, “Rear Seat Reminder Look in Rear Seat.”

This feature is active only once each ignition cycle and requires reactivation on a second trip. For example, if you load your dog into the second row through a rear door, start the vehicle and then stop for a rest break, the Rear Seat Reminder will remind you to “Look in Rear Seat” when the vehicle is turned OFF. If the vehicle is turned back ON and the dog remains in the vehicle (without the second-row door being opened and closed), the Rear Seat Reminder will not activate for the second trip, and no reminder will occur when the vehicle is subsequently turned OFF.

To turn this feature off, go to the vehicle’s Settings menu and select “Rear Seat Reminder,” then “Off.”
