Seat Belts
Lock body
Two types of seat belts are provided for the
car, i.e. the two-point seat belt and the
three-point seat belt. The two-point seat belt
is just one lap belt that strides over the hips of
a passenger. It is mounted on the middle seat
of the rear seats. The three-point seat belt
consists of a shoulder belt and a lap belt as
shown in the figure below:
With this type of seat belt, there is a single
belt over the shoulder, the front chest and the
hip. It is mounted on the front seats and the
left and right rear seats of the car.
Lap belt portion
To fasten the seat belt, the tongue should be
inserted into the lock body. Pull the seat belt
forcefully to ensure the tongue is locked firmly
by the lock body.
To unfasten the seat belt, just press down the
red button "PRESS" on the lock body.
Tips

The seat belt is designed to support
the human skeletal system.
Therefore, when worn, it should ride


over the front of pelvis as low as
possible, i.e. it should ride over the
pelvis, the front chest and the
shoulder. The lap belt should avoid
riding over the abdomen.
When the seat belt is worn, the
principle of comfort should be
followed. However, it should be
pulled as tight as possible, so the
designed protection role can be
brought into full play. A loose seat
belt will greatly reduce the protection
effect on the wearer.
Distorted seat belts cannot be used.
Each seat belt can only be used by
one passenger. It is very dangerous
to pass the seat belt over the child in
the arms of a passenger.
BYD specially reminds drivers and
passengers that seat belts should be used
correctly at all times. Otherwise, possibility or
seriousness of injury will be increased in
accidents. The seat belts installed in the car
are designed for adults. They are long
enough if used correctly.
Notice for use of the seat belts by several
special groups:
Seats, seat belts and airbags 1-41
BYD e6A AUTO Owner's Manual
Children:
Pregnant women:

Appropriate children's protection devices
should be used until the children grow
old enough to use seat belts.

If a child has a large body and
children's protection devices are not
applicable, he/she should be seated on
the back seat, and the seat belt should
be used for protection. According to the
statistics on accidents, it is safer for a
child to sit on the back seat and use the
seat belt correctly than to sit on the
front seat.
BYD suggests that the seat belt be used.
Please refer to the relevant notices for details.
The lap belt should be fastened tightly in the
position lower than the hip rather than in the
waist position.


Injured persons:
BYD suggests that the seat belt be used.
Please consult the doctors for details based
on the conditions of the injury.

WARNING
If a child has to sit on the front seat,
the seat belt should be used correctly.
Otherwise, in the event of an
accident, strength generated by the
rapid expansion of the air bag will
cause serious injury and even death
to the child.
When the car is running, passengers
should sit on the seats and wear the seat
belts at all times. Otherwise, serious injury
and even death are liable to be caused in
the event of emergency braking or collision.
Please follow the cautions below when the
seat belts are used:
Children are not allowed to stand or
kneel down on the front or back seats.
In the event of emergency braking or
collision, the unprotected children
could be seriously injured and even
killed. In addition, don't seat children on
the legs of adults. No adequate
protection will be provided either even
when children are held in arms.

1-42 Seats, seat belts and airbags


A seat belt cannot be shared, even
by two or more children together.
Do not overly tilt the seatback. The
seat belt can provide the maximum
protection in event of front or rear
collision only when the driver and
passengers are seated upright and
against the seatback. If the
passenger leans on the seatback in


an inclined position, the seat belt at
the waist may slide over the hips and
apply direct pressure on the
abdomen, or the neck may hit the
shoulder section of the seat belt. In
event of a front collision accident, the
more inclined the seat is, the higher
chances the passenger will be hurt or
even killed.
Prevent the seat belt or the hardware
from being damaged. Make sure they
are not stuck or locked in the seats or
the car doors.
Inspect the seat belt system
periodically. Check whether the seat
belt parts are broken, loose or worn.
The damaged part should be
replaced. The seat belt system
cannot be disassembled or modified.
Keep the seat belts clean and dry. If
they have to be cleaned, please use
a neutral soap or the slightly warm
water. Don't use the bleach, dye or
lapping compound or let them
contact the seat belts. Otherwise, the
seat belts will be damaged seriously.
If the seat belt system has been used
in a serious collision accident, the
seat belt assembly (including bolts)
should be replaced, even if no
remarkable damage is caused.

NOTE
● The airbag is designed to match certain
vehicle models, any variation in
suspension, tire size, bumper, chassis
and other original equipments may
adversely affect the function of the airbag.
In addition, it is strictly prohibited to apply
any airbag parts to other vehicle models;
otherwise it might lead to airbag system
failure, resulting in personal injuries.
● In driving, please wear the seat belt
properly and maintain a correct sitting
posture. In driving, if you do not wear the
seat belt and lean forward or sit in an
incorrect posture, airbag deployment may
increase the risk of injuries in accidents.
● It's very important for the driver to
maintain a distance of at least 25cm
between the chest and the steering wheel,
which allows maximum protection when
the airbag system is triggered. That is to
say, it's necessary to adjust the front seats
and the headrest according to the figure of
each occupant; in addition, the driver's
arms shall only bend slightly, stretching

case and clean any dirty matter in it before
replacing lubricant.
Pay attention to check the lubricant amount in
the transmission case during daily operation.
Refill the lubricant when it decreases; replace
the lubricant in the transmission case
regularly. To secure the quality of lubricant,
wash and clean the transmission case before
replacing lubricant.
Check the bolts outside of the transmission
for looseness or absence during daily
operation. If a bolt is found loose, tighten it
timely; if there is any bolt missing, reinstall it.
Keep the bolts and transmission case clean in
order to facilitate heat dissipation.
Check the components of ventilation pipes on
the transmission frequently to keep them

WARNING
ABS can not reduce the time and distance
required for braking. Its function is to
maintain steering control in braking. You
shall always keep safe distance away from
other vehicles.
Press the brake pedal slightly to check if it
feels normal; if normal, check the braking fluid
level when charging at the next time. If the
level is low, drive your car to BYD authorized
service station to check whether brake
system has leakage and check the brake
wear section.
ABS cannot prevent skidding caused by
sudden change of vehicle direction, such as
sharp turning or sudden lane changing.
Drive the car carefully at safe speed
regardless of the road and weather
conditions.
ABS cannot prevent reduction in vehicle
stability. In hard braking, the steering shall
be moderate. Sharp turn in driving may
cause the car to smash into the traffic flow
in the opposite direction or rush off the
road.
On soft or rugged road (such as sandy or
snowy road), a vehicle with ABS may need

brake the car, and the brake distance will be
longer.
Slow down the vehicle, and park it at the
roadside. As the braking distance is longer,

If you have to drive the car for a short trip, you
must drive with extreme care at a low speed.

Weight Limit
Tire
Before towing a trailer, make sure it is within
the vehicle's capacity. You can contact the
local BYD authorized service station to check
the trailer's capacity.
● Make sure the tire air pressures are
appropriate in each tire.
Towing capacity is measured on a level road.
In regions with high altitudes, please take
note that the motor power and its towing
capacity will reduce.
Tips
Towing trailer shall not exceed the
maximum rated load of the two-hook, or it
may cause an accident and severe
personal injury.
As towing a trailer may require longer
braking distance, you must maintain a
larger distance to other vehicles. For every
10km/h, the distance between your vehicle
and the vehicle in front of you must be no
less than the total length of your vehicle and
the trailer. Avoid hard braking to prevent the
vehicle from skidding, which may cause the
vehicle to get out of control.
2-16 Starting and Driving
● Taking the total weight of a trailer into
consideration, keep its tires with proper
pressure as specified by its manufacturer.
Running-in Procedure
● For a new auto or after undergoing
replacement of driving system parts
(motor, transmission, differential
mechanism, wheel bearing, driving shaft,
etc.), do not tow any trailer in the first
2000 km travel.
● Maintain proper pressure in tires.
Insufficient tire pressure may cause
excessive tire wear and waste power.
Refer to description in section 5-4.
● Do not leave unnecessary articles in the
vehicle. Weight of unwanted articles will
increase power assembly load and
consume more energy.
● Accelerate slowly in a stable manner. It is
recommended to avoid starting,
accelerating and decelerating suddenly.
● When towing a trailer, the increased load
requires more frequent maintenance of
the car.
● Avoid unnecessary stopping or braking.
During driving, keep a steady vehicle
speed while taking traffic signals into
consideration; and if possible, take a road
without traffic lights. Keep a proper
distance from the vehicle in front of you to
avoid hard braking, which is also helpful to
reduce brake wear.
How to Save Power and Extend
Auto Service Life
● Avoid driving in traffic peak hours or traffic
jam areas.
In simple and easy way you can save power.
Fuel-saving is also helpful to extend service
life of the vehicle. Here are some tips on
saving power and maintenance expense:
● Maintain an appropriate speed on a
freeway. The higher the vehicle speed is,
the greater the energy consumption.
Keeping an appropriate speed can reduce
energy consumption.
Maintenance
BYD e6A AUTO Owner's Manual
● Keep front wheels in proper alignment. Do
not impact on curbstone, and slow down
on rugged roads. Bad alignment of front
wheels may cause excessive wear of tires,
and also increase the load of power
assembly and energy consumption.
● Keep the chassis clean and free of mud
and similar materials. It helps to reduce
vehicle weight and prevent corrosion.
● Adjust and keep the vehicle under the best
working conditions. Regular maintenance
needs to be conducted so as to keep a long
service life of all components as well as to
reduce the operating costs. If always driving
in severe conditions, please have the
vehicle maintained more frequently (see
chapter 4).
● To extend the battery service life, please
adopt the shallow charge-discharge
method (keep the battery charge within
the range of 15% and 80%).

Check and Replace Tire
Tread wear indicator
If the tread wears down 4 mm or more on tires,
the effectiveness of tires is lost when driving
on snow.
In case of a cut, rupture or crack exposing the
cord fabric or abnormal tire inflation, it means
there is internal damage in the tire and the tire
must be replaced.
Check Tire
Check tread wear according to tire wear
indicator If the wear indicator is visible, the
tire shall be replaced.
Tire wear indicator is embedded in the tire of
BYD e6A to indicate when to replace it. When
wear depth reaches 1.6 mm or less, the wear
indicator will be exposed. If two or more wear
indicators in contiguous tread grooves are
visible, the tire must be replaced. The
shallower the tread, the greater danger of tire
skid.
5-12 Motor and Chassis
In case of frequent air leakage or cut or other
damage unrepairable due to the severity or
position, the tire must be replaced. When you
are not sure about tire conditions, please
contact BYD authorized service station.
If air leakage occurs on the road, stop driving
immediately. Even a small travel after air
leakage may cause permanent damage to the
tire.
After 6 years' use, the tire, even if it has no
obvious damage, must be inspected by
qualified technician.
The tire may deteriorate due to aging even it
has not been used heavily.
This rule also applies to spare tires and tires
in storage.
Replace Tires
Only use a tire with the same dimension and
structure, and the same or higher load
capacity to replace the tire installed on the
car.
Any difference in dimensions and structure
may have serious effect on operability,
passenger comfort, calibration of
speedometer / odometer, ground clearance
