Seat Belt Warning Light

Recommended Posts

Longs story short-I removed the passenger side seat, ran the car for a week without the seat and the airbag light came on. That made sense. (Very handy by the way having no passenger seat, like having a staiton wagon!). I replaced the seat a week later, with the one electrical connector, and everthing works normally, except the airbag warning light won'g go out. I've run the car normally for a week, just the light.

There is one small electrical connector dangling with no mate, under the seat. I think it has 2 big pins. I looked hard and could find no mate. No mention in the service manual.

I'd like to avoid a trip to the dealer. I'm going to try my odbII reaeder but I suspect that will only address the CEL(which I don't have). Did I miss something. Is there anyway to reset the light??

Thanks for the reply. That's what a I figured. It's a bummer becaise I have the Elm ODBII scanner. I haven't tried but I doubt it will have the option to reset the airbag light... I'll find out how much a mechanic will charge for the 5 minutes it will take to reset the light.

Any other cheaper solutions?

A true OBD code reader is for emission code faults. Airbag light is not emisssion related. Durametric and I think another company has come out with OBD expanded software that can also turn off the light.

It is a 5 minute job to turn it off. I do not know of any trick way to do it. If you were in the San Jose area then there are a few local owners who could turn it off for you.
