Nissan ALTIMA 2022 Emergency call (SOS) button
The 2022 Nissan Altima has a useful interior design and advanced safety features. The emergency call button and storage options are two standout features inside the car. Some cars have an emergency call button built into the infotainment system or the rearview mirror. This button is like a lifesaver because it lets you call for help right away in an accident or other emergency. The Altima, on the other hand, has a lot of storage space inside, including large glove compartments, centre consoles with lots of room for personal items, and strategically placed cupholders. This way, drivers and passengers can keep their essentials close at hand while driving, which makes this stylish and tech-savvy sedan safer and more convenient.

REAR DOOR ALERT
The Rear Door Alert system functions under certain conditions to indicate there may be an object or passenger in the rear seat(s). Check the seat(s) before exiting the vehicle.
The Rear Door Alert system is initially disabled. The driver can enable the system using the vehicle information display.
When the system is enabled:
- The system is activated when a rear door is opened and closed within 10 minutes of the vehicle being driven. When the driver door is closed and the system is activated, a visual message appears in the vehicle information display.
- If a rear door is opened and closed but the vehicle is not driven within approximately 10 minutes, the system will not be activated. A rear door must be opened and closed and the car driving within 10 minutes for the system to activate.

- Select “Disable Alert” to temporarily disable that stop.
- No selection or ‘Dismiss Message” will keep the alert enabled for that stop.
- If the alert is enabled when a driver exits the vehicle, a message will appear in the vehicle information display that states “Check Back Seat For All Articles.”
If the “Horn & Alert” setting is selected:
- An audible horn sound will occur after a short time unless a rear door is opened and closed within a short time to deactivate the alert.
- If the doors are locked before the alert is deactivated by opening a rear door, the horn will sound.
- If the trunk is opened before a rear door is opened, the horn will be delayed until after the trunk is closed.
If the “Alert Only” setting is selected, the message alert will still be shown in the vehicle information display but the horn will not sound.
- If the driver selects “Disable Alert”, no audible alert will be provided regardless of rear door open/close status.
- There may be times when there is an object or passenger in the rear seat(s) but the audible alert does not sound. For example, this may occur if rear-seat passengers enter or exit the vehicle during a trip.
