Had to take out my front driver's seat on Sunday...spilled 24 oz of coffee and cream under the seat a week or so ago and it was starting to get gamey...needed to clean.
Pulled the seat, disconnected the wiring harness for the seat belt indicator, reinstalled the seat, and reconnected the wiring harness until I heard it click into place.
Since then the damn seat belt warning chime and light will not turn off. Annoying as hell, thankfully less than 4 miles to work...but I need to fix this. Any thoughts?
I tried the following (several times) to at least turn off the chime, no joy, did not work.
NOTE: The following steps must occur within the first 60 seconds of the ignition switch being turned to the ON or START position. The manufacturer does not recommend deactivating the Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert).
1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and buckle the driver or front passenger seat belt.
2. Turn the ignition key to the ACCESSORY/RUN position (engine does not need to be running), and wait for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle, unbuckle and then re-buckle the driver or front passenger seat belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with the seat belt buckled.
4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.
The Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) can be reactivated by repeating this procedure.
NOTE: Although the Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) has been deactivated, the Seat Belt Warning Light will continue to illuminate while the driver’s seat belt remains unfastened.
Wonder if I didn't pinch a wire or strain the wiring harness when I reinstalled the seat.
And yes, I've used the search function....
