SOURCE: airbag light on

Most dealerships or garages with decent scan tools can find an air bag code if the light is on. The light might not turn itself off even when fixed and would have to be cleared. Also I've seen lights come on if someone has a large audio system installed and is drawing to much power. That is usually just a low voltage code with the system though.

SOURCE: Seat belt buckle receiver will

If it's not a coin, look inside the buckle again, compare it with a properly working latch. If you see something inside the broken latch that looks like it may be protruding out from the back, try pushing it back with a flathead or key, then pop the push button back up with the same tool you used... I have to do this each time I get out of my truck because the spring is broken. It still should work fine, it's just missing a spring that reset the latch to it's resting position. If you're still skeptical about it though, it's like a 25 dollar fix with installation.

I have a 2015 Mitsubishi Shogun.The battery was flat so had to be jump started.since then the seat belt warning light and chime won't go off even when the seat belt is fastened. please help!!

In seat belt there's a sensor that tells when seat belt is buckled. The sensor isn't registering that belt is buckled. Have belt system checked out by dealership should be still under warranty. Don't think it's connected to battery problem

Light is on the dashboard. looks like a person sitting in a seat with a seatbelt on , and a round circle thing like a bll, the view is from the side. what does this mean?

It is telling you that either your seat belt is not on or your passengers is not on. There is a sensor inside the seat belt buckle that tells the car you are wearing it. If the passenger seat senses the weight of a person (or big dog) and they don't have the buckle on then the light will come on. If the seat belts are both buckled in then you must have a bad sensor on the buckle.

Srs airbag light is on on my 99 pontiac grand prix

If the seat belt light comes on intermittently with the belt buckled, it may have a bad switch in the buckle or a loose connection @ the switch. This may also set a diagnostic trouble code in the srs control module & keep the srs airbag light on.
