Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
Seat belt light will not go off. All belts buckled.
In my past experience with wiring in a car and seat belt lights I have found that most every newer vehicle will have a single negative lead wire running to some sort of switch in the seat belt locking mechanism. When the male end of the belt is placed into the female lock the switch will be depressed and grounded to complete a circut then turn off the light. If any switch is damaged and does not complete the circut then the light will not turn off. This may be the problem but it could also be a simple computer glitch in your vehicle. Another problem could also just be a blown fuse that triggers the light to come on as a precaution. A call to your local auto parts store may be able to help you more. I am just a self learning mechanic and not very computer savy.
