Check under both seats and make sure the wire harness is plugged in all the way. Some times shoving stuff under the seat unplugs wiring harness; seat belt sensor, occupant weight senor for air bags, heated seats & power seats (could be more than one wiring harness. Look inside belt buckle fastener; is it crusty with anything (food, crumbs, coin change)? Blow it out with a portable can of air. Make sure both the male/female parts of belt are clean, non-rusted/corroded & non-damaged to make good electrical connection when belted in; this turns off your belt warning light and bell. Check all wiring from the belt buckle release a the way down to under the seat; both sides...both seats They both seats could be interlinked into system; when one fails (bad connection) the other seat sensor fails also.

    Do not defeat the system by unplugging it under the seat! This is a satey feature that controls the air bags; distance, weight (wether or not the seat is occupied. Some cars remember if the seat belt was used & if there was anybody in the seat during an accident; information is pulled from cars computer for insurance reasons and state susticics for accidents.

I thought mine might just be dirty in as having some type of blockage because if I hit it 3 or 4 times it would shut off. I tried several approaches to a fix but what finally worked was to spray some brake cleaner with the straw attachment to concentrate the application directly into the belt receptacle. At least for now of one day of stop and go and in and out of the vehicle driving deems to have cured the problem. I think there was some type of small debris the blast from the brake cleaner dislodged.

SOURCE: seat belt alarm stays on

You can disconnect it yourself. There is a wire lead that comes from the seatbelt fastener, you may need to lift the carpet up a bit. This lead will have a connector, dis connect it at the connector. This will deactivate the alam, however your seatbelt light will remain on. From here you can see where the malfunctioning switch is, if you feel confident to change it.

SOURCE: annoying alarm dinging until van reaches 17mph

This means one of the door ajar sensors is stuck. You need to remove the door trim panel and then the latch and then the sensor. Once out clean and lube it. There is a sensor inside every door.

You don't. It is there as a reminder to use your seat belt,you know that. Disconnect it and fail inspection in some states. You can thank all those poeple who never worn seat belts 30 years ago when it became a law,for the warning buzzer you don't care for.

Hello, This is an unusual combination for problems. It sounds like you have a bad ground wire to the seat belt system if it is using that chime to signal.

The fuelcap warning works off of the Evaporative Emissions system and should be covered by Federal Emmisions laws which require the parts to last longer than the Factory Warranty. Both the Years and the Mileage are Warranteed to last longer. Your car is older, so you would need to look in your original car papers at the requirements in 2004 or ask the Dealer. A special test, called a smoke test is how the leaks are detected. This requires a special machine and only a Dealer can do Warranty work, but Independents have the machines too.

The ABS system may have corroded connectors in the plug-ins. After a little current flows through the wires, the moisture is burned off and a better connection results after time passes. The is why you have an intermittent reoccurring problem. The ABS module can be Scanned separately from the engine. You just need to go somewhere they have a proper scanner.

Advance, Autozone, and Oreilys give free scans. You should call ahead and ask if they have the equipment to scan the ABS brake modules. Usually the ABS warnings are accurate and the brakes should be checked if the scan indicates it.

SOURCE: When driving our 06 mustang we hear a series of 4

30 minutes or seconds? does the dome lamp come on, like one of the doors not closed all the way? A good repair shop or the Ford dealer can get a scanner and watch for the belts, doors, lights, ect ( I think thats the only thing that will ring a chime) as you drive and see whats making it go on.

My seat belt alarm keeps dinging even though my seat belt is secured/fastened. how do I make it stop?


There is a small wired connection that leads to your set belt buckle under your seat. My bet is that is loose or came disconnected as you put something under your seat. It will have a small plastic connection point in the line.

Touring. Why does seat belt bell ding even when seat belt is fastened?


You start by looking at broken wire connection under seats, often times just unplugging wire connection and replugging works.

Every time I go over a big bump in road one ,two or even three rear seat belt lights come on and then start pinging/ringing and do not stop until either I switch engine off or fasten rear seat belts.


The sensors in the seat detect weight and assume there are occupants in the seats without the seat belts done up and this then triggers the warnings. If you are carrying items on the seat that bounce when you hit a bump that may trigger the alarms. Even movement in the seat unit itself when you hit a decent bump could trigger the sensors.

Just keep the rear seat belts done up and you will not have a problem with false warnings.

Even after I buckle my seatbelt the chime still goes off and my car does not recognize it is buckled. Please tell me which fuse I need to take or what to do and dont tell me to check my manual and follow...


Try looking for a wire that connects to the seat belt somewhere under the seat it could have become disconnected or cut. Also try taping the fastener with something like a hammer maybe a bit of WD-40 cause something might be sticking inside the fastener.

Thanks
