2004 Explorer seat belt alarm does not go off when belt connected

I tried unplugging the wire at the seat belt until I can get it fixed and now have an alarm for the air bag system. I'm okay if nothing else is going to happen and it is safe to drive.

Our problem is that the heated seat will not turn off on the passenger side. the switch button was knocked off and lost.

reach under seat and unplug connection or if switch can be pulled thru side than unplug until you can get replacement if plug is unreachable than remove the fuse for the heater

Seat belt alarm doesnt shut off when Waring seat belt i want to disconnect the alarm

Probably just as easy to repair the fault than to disconnect or remove the alarm, which could be just plugged into the fuse box or more likely buried in the dashboard to discourage people from disconnecting it.

The alarm is generally switched off by a switch built into the seatbelt stalk. The presence of wires will verify this. The wires might have been damaged or become unplugged or the switch stopped working. Lots of dust and stuff finds its way down there.

I suggest you take care not to confuse any wiring for seatbelt pretensioners.

Ford explorer seat belt alarm goes off even when seat belt is buckled, but only if it is buckled after starting the car. If i buckle it first, the alarm does not go off.

Click on the link.
If you replace the restraint control module, I don't know if that will fix it? You can see your instrument cluster is also involved.
Any applicable trouble codes?
Sorry, I can't diagnose.

My seat belt alarm keeps dinging even though my seat belt is secured/fastened. how do I make it stop?

Check under both seats and make sure the wire harness is plugged in all the way. Some times shoving stuff under the seat unplugs wiring harness; seat belt sensor, occupant weight senor for air bags, heated seats & power seats (could be more than one wiring harness. Look inside belt buckle fastener; is it crusty with anything (food, crumbs, coin change)? Blow it out with a portable can of air. Make sure both the male/female parts of belt are clean, non-rusted/corroded & non-damaged to make good electrical connection when belted in; this turns off your belt warning light and bell. Check all wiring from the belt buckle release a the way down to under the seat; both sides...both seats They both seats could be interlinked into system; when one fails (bad connection) the other seat sensor fails also.

Seat belt alarm wont stop.

I assume you are wearing your seatbelt. You will usually find a wire connector under the drivers seat that will disable the alarm if unpluged. it will just be a 2 wire connector.
