Mitsubishi Lancer Owners Manual
3-point type seat belt (with emergency locking mechanism)
This type of belt requires no length adjustment.
Once worn, the belt adjusts itself to the movement of the wearer, but in the event of a sudden or strong shock, the belt automatically locks to hold the wearer’s body.
► You can check if the belt locks by pulling it forward quickly.
1. Pull the seat belt out slowly while holding the latch plate.
► When the seat belts cannot be pulled out in a locked condition, pull the belts once forcefully and then return them. After that, pull the belts out slowly once again.
2. Insert the latch plate into the buckle until a “click” is heard.
► Never wear the lap portion of the belt across your abdomen. During accidents
it can press sharply against the abdomen and increase the risk of injury.
► The seat belts must not be twisted when worn.
3. Pull the belt slightly to adjust slackness as desired.
Hold the latch plate and push the button on the buckle.
► As the belt retracts automatically, keep holding the latch plate while retracting so that the belt stows slowly. Failure to do this could damage the vehicle.
Driver’s seat belt reminder/warning lamp and display
A tone and warning lamp are used to remind the driver to fasten the seat belt.
If the ignition switch is set to the “ON” position without the driver’s seat belt being fastened, a warning lamp will blink and a buzzer will sound for approximately 6 seconds to remind you to fasten your seat belt.
If you then drive with the seat belt unfastened for longer than a minute from when the ignition switch was turned on, the warning lamp will come on and blink repeatedly and the tone will sound intermittently.
The warning lamp and the tone alarm will stop after approximately 90 seconds.
If you then repeatedly stop and start your vehicle with the seat belt unfastened, the warning lamp/display and tone will remind you to fasten your seat belt every time the vehicle starts moving. You will also be reminded to fasten your seat belt in this way when you remove your seat belt while driving.
The warning lamp and the tone alarm go off when the seat belt is fastened.
► At the same time, “FASTEN SEAT BELT” is displayed on the information screen in the multi-information display.
Front passenger seat belt warning lamp
The front passenger seat belt warning lamp is located on the instrument panel.
The lamp comes on when a person sits on the front passenger seat but does not fasten the seat belt. It goes off when the seat belt is subsequently fastened.
► Do not install any accessory or sticker that makes the lamp difficult to see.
