Post by: lindsaykk4 on May 25, 2017, 09:01:33 PM
The warning light and chime stay on despite all belts being worn. How can I fix this?

If it does it when just driver is there can assume its drivers seat at fault.

Can also try disabling the chime.

Apply the parking brake.
Place the transmission selector lever in P (Park) - vehicles with automatic transmission or the neutral position - vehicles with manual transmission.
Turn the ignition switch to position 0.
Close all the vehicle doors from the inside of the vehicle.
Unbuckle the driver safety belt.
Deactivating/Activating
Turn the ignition switch to position II. (Do not start the engine).
The safety belt warning indicator will extinguish within 10 seconds.
Step 4 must be completed within 60 seconds or the procedure must be repeated.
Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt nine times, ending with the safety belt unbuckled.
The safety belt warning indicator flashes three times to confirm the belt minder status change.
To activate the belt minder, repeat Steps 1 through 7.
After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.
