What the Rear Door Alert Does

As mentioned before, Rear Door Alert helps remind drivers to check the back seat after parking. How does this work?

With Rear Door Alert activated, the system will detect if the rear door was opened prior to driving. If either rear door was opened and the vehicle goes into park, Rear Door Alert will remind the driver with a notification on the instrument panel. If the driver exits the vehicle and the rear door is not opened, the horn will chirp. Drivers can choose to turn on or off this feature at any time.
