Rear Occupant Alert (ROA)

  • When you open the front door after opening and closing the rear door and turning off the engine, Check rear seats warning message appears on the cluster.

A: Check rear seats

You can activate or deactivate Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) from the infotainment system.

The option can be found under the following menu:

  1. Press Setup button from the infotainment system screen.

  2. Press SetupVehicleConvenienceRear Occupant Alert on the infotainment system screen.

For detailed information, refer to the separately supplied infotainment system manual.


Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) does not actually detect objects or people in the rear seat. By using a rear door opened and closed history, the system informs the driver that there may be something in the rear seat.

  • Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) uses a rear door opened and closed history.

  • The history is reset after the driver turns the vehicle off normally, exits the vehicle and locks the door remotely. So even if a rear door does not reopen, Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) alert can occur.

  • For example, after the Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) alert occurs, if the driver does not lock the door, and drives again, the alert can occur.


The door lock system may not work if the electrical system is compromised. Accordingly, please train children passengers regarding how to open the car door manually before an emergency situation arises. That way, they would be able to open the door manually in the event an emergency situation arises.
