What VW year , model, trim level??

Posted on Oct 31, 2008

  • helpyou Nov 01, 2008

    Yes sorry just saw the model, new to this program. What we see often is the wiring between the seat and the carpet if not zip tied to the seat frame usually wears causing broken wires. With a VAG COM or VW scanner we can see if the airbag module is recievng signal the belt is buckled or not. Check for broken wires there but also at the seat belt buckle. BE careful because these cars have airbags in the seats and wrong testing could activate the aibag!!! THe YELLOW connectors are aibag related.

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.

Air bag light flashes 5 times then 1 time


That flashing indicates fault code 51. Fault code 51 indicates a problem with the driver's seat belt circuit. The seat belt buckle has a switch in it to determine if the belt is buckled up when the seat is occupied [determined by a pressure sensor in the seat bottom]. The switch in the buckle is either bad or the wiring to the switch is either short or open circuited.
Use of a computer scan tool can help narrow down the problem. There are four different scan tool fault codes relating to code 51. They are B2432, B2433, B2434 & B2435. These codes will give you more defined information on the actual fault. Most common faults are either a bad switch in the seat belt buckle or damaged wiring to that switch. Damaged wiring is usually caused by the driver placing objects under the driver's seat, which damage the wiring coming out of the seat belt. It is also possible to have a bad seat belt computer [Restraints Control Module or RCM]. A bad RCM is not common. Check for damage to the seat belt wiring under the driver's seat. Best to remove the seat and lift up the carpeting to do this. If no physical damage or water corrosion damage is present, replace the seat belt. After repairs, disconnect the battery for 1 minute to clear the fault code from the RCM's memory.

Broken seat belt buckle


If I had the problem I would look at a junkyard or on line at e-bay for a replacement. You will need to get the buckle and the belt that it is attached to that goes down to the floor down through the crack in the seat.
Remember the buckle receiver is made for the certain belt in the front and rear seats. I have often tried to put the wrong belt in a buckle and it would not fit. ( Example: the right belt goes in the right buckle.)
Be blessed.

Srs light is on but everything is working..


Known problem for SRS light might be cause by bad seat belt buckle. Honda seat belt buckle and belts are lifetime warranty(not cover if broken because of abuse). Have your honda dealer scan it for code. They might charge you $55 to scan for the code(ex:09-3 driver seat buckle failure), but if it is a for buckle or belt code then everything is free including the scan(labor and part).
good luck

My seat belt light stays on in my BMW Z4. Is there a solution to this.


The contact in your seat belt buckle needs cleaned, (when you click the belt into the buckle the connection is not being completed keeping the dash light on.) Try inserting a thin flat blade screw driver with a lint free cloth dipped in rubbing alcohol into the buckle and slide to and fro gently. do this a few times moving cloth o a clean spot each time till no dirt shows.

Audible seatbelt warning keeps on sounding on my 2005 f150 ford truck


From the F-150 Forums, since I just bought one and this worked!

This is straight from my 2009 f150 owners guide

Preperation
1. the parking brake is set
2. truck in park
3. ignition switch is in off position
4. both seat belts are unbuckled

Disable Belt-Minder
1. turn the ignition switch to the 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 secs after the safety belt warning light turns off.
3. buckle then unbuckle the seat belt nine times, ending in the seat belt unbuckled.
* after step 3 the restraint warning light, (airbag light) will turn on for three (3) seconds.
4. within approximately seven (7) seconds of the light turning off, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
* the restraint system warning light will flash four, (4) times per second for 3 seconds for confirmation

you can do this for the passenger side also!!!


*NOTE
in step 3. after three times buckling and unbuckling the restraint warning light lit up in my truck. SO I WENT TO THE NEXT STEP, (STEP 4). waited 3 seconds and i buckled and unbuckled.

in the buckle /unbuckle procedure do it some what slowly and watch for the light. it may not take 9 times.
