Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
While driving on the hwy ystrdy for 1 hr continuously my seatbelt light came on while I'm doing 50 on the hwy.My seatbelt was fastened & no one else was in the car.I clicked,unclicked,re clicked,the light never went out.I parked,came back an hour later,light is still on.I just bought this car off a friend 10 days ago as is with 146k miles on it.It has no real mechanical problems,only cosmetic:bulbs missing,terrible leather interior,faded wood,and a brake line I replaced for $60,but this latest dashboard light is annoying.Does anyone hv the seatbelt sensor code or a way to do a diagnostic to get it and turn the light out?Why is it on in the first place?BTW the owners manual is useless.
Here is your solution:
What you have is a bad seat belt receiver (the female part). There is a switch inside of the receiver that needs to close to ground when the seat belt male part is inserted. You can either replace the seat belt receiver, OR, you can do this: Look under the seat for the wiring harness going to the seat belt receiver. You will find a Red with a Yellow tracer wire. Connect this wire to a grounded part of the body (the bolt for the receiver, on the floor, is usually OK), and the light will be out forever.
Please comment back if this helps, or you have any other questions.
