Placing a passenger seat belt into
the auto lock mode
The auto lock mode will help prevent the
normal movement of the child in the vehi-
cle from causing the seat belt to loosen
and compromise the child restraint sys-
tem. To secure a child restraint system,
use the following procedure.
To install a child restraint system on the
outboard or center rear seats, do the fol-
1. Place the child restraint system in the
seat and route the lap/shoulder belt
around or through the restraint, follow-
ing the restraint manufacturer’s
instructions. Be sure the seat belt web-
bing is not twisted.
2. Fasten the lap/shoulder belt latch into
the buckle. Listen for the distinct “click”
Position the release button so that it is
easy to access in case of an emergency.
3. Pull the shoulder portion of the seat
belt all the way out. When the shoulder
portion of the seat belt is fully extend-
ed, it will shift the retractor to the “Auto
Lock” (child restraint) mode.
