1) Switch the ignition to ON, but DO NOT START ENGINE. On a push to start vehicle, do not depress the brake pedal before pressing the start button on.

• The seatbelt warning light will illuminate

• Fasten then unfasten the seatbelt one more time.

• The seatbelt warning light will flash to confirm.

• The seatbelt warning flash confirms the procedure is complete
