Rear Seats Chevrolet Equinox

Rear Seat Reminder.
If equipped, the message REAR SEAT REMINDER LOOK IN REAR SEAT displays under certain conditions indicating there may be an item or passenger in the rear seat. Check before exiting the vehicle.
This feature will activate when a second row door is opened while the vehicle is on or up to 10 minutes before the vehicle is turned on. There will be an alert when the vehicle is turned off. The alert does not directly detect objects in the rear seat; instead, under certain conditions, it detects when a rear door is opened and closed, indicating that there may be something in the rear seat.
The feature is active only once each time the vehicle is turned on and off, and will require reactivation by opening and closing the second row doors. There may be an alert even when there is nothing in the rear seat; for example, if a child entered the vehicle through the rear door and left the vehicle without the vehicle being shut off.
The feature can be turned on or off. See Vehicle Personalization.

Reclining the Seatback.
To recline the seatback:

1. Pull the reclining seatback handle.
2. Move the seatback to the desired position, and then release the handle to lock the seatback in place.
3. Push and pull on the seatback to make sure it is locked.

Folding the Seatback.
Either side of the seatback can be folded for more cargo space. Fold a seatback only when the vehicle is not moving.

Folding a rear seat with the seat belts still fastened may cause damage to the seat or the seat belts. Always unbuckle the seat belts and return them to their normal stowed position before folding a rear seat.
To fold the seatback:

1. Pull the handle on top of the seatback to unlock it.
A tab near the seatback lever raises when the seatback is unlocked.
2. Fold the seatback forward.

3. Stow the seat belt in the belt stowage clip.
Repeat the steps to fold the other seatback, if desired.

If equipped, the rear seatbacks can also be folded forward by pulling the levers on the passenger side of the rear cargo area.

Raising the Seatback.
If either seatback is not locked, it could move forward in a sudden stop or crash.
That could cause injury to the person sitting there. Always push and pull on the seatbacks to be sure they are locked.
A seat belt that is improperly routed, not properly attached, or twisted will not provide the protection needed in a crash.
The person wearing the belt could be seriously injured. After raising the rear seatback, always check to be sure that the seat belts are properly routed and attached, and are not twisted.
To raise a seatback:.

1. Ensure the seat belt is in the belt stowage clip.
2. Lift the seatback up and push it rearward to lock it in place.
A tab near the seatback lever retracts when the seatback is locked in place.
3. Push and pull the top of the seatback to be sure it is locked into position.
4. Repeat the steps to raise the other seatback, if necessary.
When the seat is not in use, it should be kept in the upright, locked position.

Heated Rear Seats.
