Seat belt light flashing when ignition turned on

I was driving when suddenly the seat belt warning light came on the dash board and started bleeping. Never happened before. Cleared by turning engine off and restarting and cleared it. Would this return as car booked for a full service 19th Dec 13

Next time you\'re driving, try placing a heavy bag on the front passenger seat. If the seatbelt light comes on and starts bleeping, you may have found your problem. Another problem might be dog hair in the mechanism. Simple, but true. Why dog hair? WHO KNOWS! :) Used to happen a lot with my Mondeo.

Oooo...have you tried disabling the seatbelt warning? There\'s plenty of tips on how to do this. My driveway is .75mi long and I have two gates to open/close and the stupid car is telling me to put my seatbelt on for 500yd only to undo it again! :)

check your battery terminals and if not that you will be looking at a worn wire which is earthing out and causing the immobiliser to short out.

Common fault on FORD
Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.


Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

Where is the fuse located that activates the seatbelt alarm for my 2008 mercury mariner.


There is not a single fuse just for the seat belt alarm .
The instrument cluster provides the warning chime function. The instrument cluster uses various inputs to determine when to sound the warning chime. The warning chime sounds if:
  • the headlamps are left on with the ignition switch in the OFF position and the driver door is ajar.
  • the key is in the ignition with the ignition switch in the OFF position and the driver door is ajar.
  • the transaxle is not in the PARK (P) position and the driver door is ajar.
  • a door is ajar while the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • the safety belts are not fastened and the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • the turn signal is on for more than 3.2 km (2 miles).
  • the parking brake is engaged and the vehicle is moving more than 5 km/h (3 mph).
  • the ignition switch is in the RUN position and a secondary air bag warning chime request is received from the restraints control module (RCM).
  • the ignition switch is in the ON position with the transaxle in the PARK (P) position and the driver door is ajar (Hybrid).
An audible signal is provided to indicate when the turn or hazard signal is on.

Safety Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating
Preparation
  1. Apply the parking brake before deactivating/activating the belt minder.
  1. Place the gear selector lever in PARK or NEUTRAL (manual transaxle).
  1. Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
  1. Close all the vehicle doors.
  1. Unbuckle the driver safety belt.
  1. Place the parking lamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position.

Deactivating/Activating
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)
  1. Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately 1 to 2 minutes).
  1. NOTE: Steps 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off. For seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt in the unbuckled state. After this step, the air bar warning indicator illuminates for 3 seconds.
  1. Within 10 seconds after the air bar warning indicator turns off, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
    • This disables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently enabled. As confirmation, the air bar warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
    • This enables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently disabled. As confirmation, the air bag warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds followed by another flash sequence of 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
  1. After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.

Why is my Fiat bleeping from the inside?


Its an audible warning, is your door closing properly? seatbelt connecting in the latch correctly? handbrake correctly released?, also check the boot and bonnet is secure and latched. Check the dashboard do you have any warning symbols, low oil fuel etc or a service indicator or warning light usually an engine shape or a service due message will be on your dash.If you are not sure go to a garage.

In my 2006 ford fusion 2.3L whenever I put my key in the ignition and turn it a weird solid ringing sound start and stops 5 seconds later hat could it be?


Not surprisingly, many others have experienced problems with the ignition switch on this car. Historically, it is not a sound, but that the key is stuck in the ignition. http://repairpal.com/key-will-not-come-out-of-ignition-570 Your problem sounds different, but it may be related. Although I do not recommend the fix in the link above, it is possible the previous owner of your car did perform this fix and it has resulted in the problem you now have. My better guess is that the chime/buzzer has failed due to moisture or dirt and is no longer producing the sound that it should, but instead is altered to the ringing you describe.To disable follow these instructions:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (or ON) position. (DO NOT
START THE ENGINE)
2. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off. (Approximately 1
minute)
Step 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt
warning light turns off.
3. For the seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending in the unbuckled state.
(Step 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt
warning light turns off.)
After Step 3, the safety belt warning light will be turned on for three
seconds.
4. Within 10 seconds of the light turning on, at a moderate speed, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt.
This will disable the BeltMinder feature for that seating position if it
is currently enabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning light will
flash 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
This will enable the BeltMinder feature for that seating position if it
is currently disabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning light will
flash 4 times per second for 3 seconds, followed by 3 seconds with the
light off, then followed by the safety belt warning light flashing 4 times
per second for 3 seconds again.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Dash lights for door adjar, seat belt, and windshield washer turn on in sequence then all turn off


You will need to replace the ignition starter switch, this switch is operated by a long steel rod from the ignition key cylinder, it is located under the dash on the top of the steering column tube, it has a very large connector going to it. See the photo below of the part.
Color of switch is black .

WHEN I START MY CAR, I CAN HEAR 3 BLEEPING WARNING SOUNDS BUT NOTHING DISPLAYS ON THE COMPUTER TO GIVE ME ANY WARNING. THESE 3 BLEEPS ALSO HAPPEN WHILST I`M DRIVING AS WELL


check and see if there's any other icons flashing on the dash other then the warning lights. it may also be that the warning light has blown or someone removed it so they could sell it. other then that all you can really do is check the book that came with the car for reasons that there's a warning beep or take it to a mechanic that has a scan tool with the software for that specific vehicle.

Does this happen when you put an item of some sort on the passengers side seat, that warning sign is for not having a seat belt on as the seats have sensors (this is on right hand drive vehicles, eg. Australia)

After starting, I hear 8 - 10 soft beeps coming from the dash area, and then it stops.... Is this a warning or something?


This should be a warning if your seat belt is off or the door is open. If the car is driving and running good and there are no warning lights on the dash after it starts I would have a diagnostic test done by the dealer, about $45, and if that checks out let it go until you get a warning light. Try starting the vehicle with your seat belt on and connected and see if you still have the beeps. If you do I would definately have the diagnostic done. If it doesn't then you know what it is.
