HAPPY NEW YEAR!
This morning getting into my car i was feeling a strange, low thin noise before even placing the ignition switch to start up the car. When I started up on the SID I had the warning for the passenger seat coming up even though I was alone in the car. I left it as it is and on the way I picked the belt and switched it so it stopped. It looks funny though with the belt switched and nobody sitting!
When I stopped the car I restarted again and then no warning sign was up on the SID. I am not convinced that this was just a false alarm and will never come up again... Maybe tomorrow or one of the following days it will appear again. Just to note that this morning was nearly 0 degrees (I don't know if temperatures might affect sensors etc). Btw, I hadn't move or tried to clean under the passenger's seat these days in order to suspect that I dsconnected by mistake anything there. I will wait and see how it goes.
Does anybody have a clue on this and if problems like this (since they appear once) indicate a real problem and not simply a false alarm? I hope it doesn't cost much to replace any damaged sensor if this is the case...
Thanks in advance!
1st, the sensor is going bad
2nd, the items on the seat is making it go off.
If you have nothing on the seat then it is a sensor. Do a search, there was a fix someone did with making a resistor kit that disconnected the sensor but made the car believe it was connected and made it think the seat belt was on/in place.
I have the same problem with mine...I throw my backpack on the seat, it will show the warning. It used to piss me off and I would slam my fist down on the seat and it would go off, but I got used to it. Also, try to just jiggle the wires under the seat...just for shyts n giggles. Personally, I got used to it and it isnt worth the money to fix or make a resistor...i just have to remember to to put a heavy back pack on it.
