System Operation

Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR)

All retractors have an Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) mode, which is a vehicle-sensitive feature designed to activate and lock the seatbelt webbing during hard braking, cornering, or an impact of approximately 24 km/h (14.9 mph). The Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) feature helps reduce the forward movement of the driver and passengers. For testing, see Functional Test - Seatbelt Retractor, Road Test Inspection.
Refer to: Seatbelt Systems (501-20A Seatbelt Systems, Diagnosis and Testing).

Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR)

The Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) mode is used when locking a child seat in any passenger seating position. The Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) mode automatically activates when the seatbelt webbing is fully extracted from the retractor and then allowed to retract. As the seatbelt webbing retracts back onto the spool, an audible clicking sound is made, indicating the seatbelt retractor is in Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) mode and the seatbelt webbing cannot pull back out of the seatbelt retractor. The Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) mode disengages when the webbing is allowed to fully retract back into the retractor. For testing, see Functional Test - Seatbelt Retractor, Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) Mode,
Refer to: Seatbelt Systems (501-20A Seatbelt Systems, Diagnosis and Testing).

Seatbelt Warning Chime

The conditions of operation for the driver and/or front passenger seatbelt warning indicator and chime operate as follows:

  • If the driver and/or passenger seatbelt is not buckled with the ignition ON, then the seatbelt warning indicator illuminates for 1 to 2 minutes and the warning chime sounds for 4 to 8 seconds.
  • If the driver and/or passenger seatbelt is buckled while the warning indicator is illuminated and the warning chime is sounding, then the indicator and chime turn off.
  • If the driver and/or passenger seatbelt is buckled before the ignition is in the ON position, the seatbelt warning indicator and chime remain off.

Belt-Minder®

The Belt-Minder® feature is a supplemental warning to the seatbelt warning function. This feature provides an additional reminder that the driver and/or front passenger seatbelt is unbuckled by intermittently sounding a chime and illuminating the seatbelt warning indicator in the IPC.

Either the driver or front passenger seatbelt systems may activate the Belt-Minder®. If the Belt-Minder® warnings have expired (warnings last for approximately 5 minutes) for one occupant (driver or front passenger), the other occupant can still activate the Belt-Minder® feature.

The passenger Belt-Minder® feature is activated only when the OCS detects a passenger in the right front seat and the passenger weight exceeds a programmed limit. For information on the OCS,
Refer to: Airbag and Seatbelt Pretensioner Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) - System Operation and Component Description (501-20B Supplemental Restraint System, Description and Operation).

When a MyKey® is in the ignition, deactivation of Belt-Minder® and the 5-minute Belt-Minder® timer are overridden. The Belt-Minder® feature cannot be deactivated when a MyKey® is in use. Refer to the Owner's Literature for further information on MyKey® functionality.

To activate or deactivate the Belt-Minder® feature,
Refer to: Seatbelt Minder Deactivating/Activating (413-01 Instrumentation, Message Center and Warning Chimes, General Procedures).

If... Then...
the driver and/or passenger seatbelt is buckled before the ignition is turned ON or less than 1-2 minutes have elapsed since the ignition has been turned ON... the Belt-Minder® feature will not activate.
the driver and/or front passenger seatbelt is not buckled before the vehicle has reached at least 9.7 km/h (6.0 mph) and 1-2 minutes have elapsed since the ignition has been turned ON... the Belt-Minder® feature is activated — the seatbelt warning indicator illuminates and the warning chime sounds for 6 seconds every 30 seconds, repeating for approximately 5 minutes or until the seatbelt(s) is buckled.
the driver or front passenger seatbelt becomes unbuckled for approximately one minute while the vehicle is traveling at least 9.7 km/h (6.0 mph) and more than 1-2 minutes have elapsed since the ignition has been ON... the Belt-Minder® feature is activated — the seatbelt warning indicator illuminates and the warning chime sounds for 6 seconds every 30 seconds, repeating for approximately 5 minutes or until the seatbelt(s) is buckled.
