    Afternoon All, Bought a C Class C250 Sport at the weekend - Very pleased with the car and early signs are its going to be an enjoyable drive.

    One small issue when 1st setting off I get a car symbol outline in the middle of the dash with 2 seats One is a white outline and the second is fully white. Below this there are 3 seat symbols and they are all White

    Image attached

    I have scoured the book & Net and nothing tells me what this is (It goes off after 20 seconds ish)

    Anyone got any idea please ?

    Its just telling you to put your seat belt on and also advising you who is wearing one.

    If somebody sits in the rear it will show a different symbol to advise that your passenger have or haven't got their seat belt on.

    It is also telling you that the car is lying on it's side.

    Is this accompanied by the navigation system going "You have crashed. Please turn over when possible"? :D

    And I always believed this was the seat ejector activation, d'oh.

    Cheers All - Phone Issues as well as car issues ! , Just on another note one of the Fog Lamp lenses has smashed on the drive back - Are these easy to change yourself or a job for a pro ?
