SOURCE: seat belt indicator

look under the drivers seat there is a plug that may be unplugged or broken this is what tells the light to stay on plug it in or try unplugging it and see what happens, on some of the 200 and up models the seat belt light may have some affect on airbags working properly, I have not found this to be the case on 97 model.

Usually a sensor in the seat that recognizes a body in it. Check under the seat for any plug that may have disconnected. maybe someone kicked it with their foot.

SOURCE: 1988 Chevy 1500 pickup, seat belt light stays on, but the buzzer stops when the seat belt isengaged

The weight sensor in the seat is bad if this is the passenger seat. When you connect the seat belt, the sensor is disabled.

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.

Seat Belt Indicator flashes and beeps randomly


If I remember correctly there is a sensor in the seatbelt buckle. It might have worked its' way loose and your leg motions might be moving it enough to open or ground the circuit. Might be a good idea to check and see if something fell into the latch area, too.

Seat belt light flashes after seat belt is on


The new 2013 Bentley Mulsanne Mulliner has the same thing.I know on the Bat Mobile it means the ejector seat is not fully charged.

The only generic answer I can conclude with information you provide is ;

1) The passenger seat of a newer general motors car

2) The seatbelt light does not light up when the seat is not occupied

3) The passenger side Airbag (SRS) has been turned OFF

4) While occupied , the seatbelt light on the insrument cluster lights steady

5) when the seatbelt is active (buckled with a passenger) the light flashes.

6) anybody?

The seatbelt light in the gauge on the dashboard keeps flashing on and off. Passengers wear seat belts when driving..... I have disconnected the battery, recently to replace a burned out head light bulb....


Dear,

the blinking light only indicates the belt position of the Driver seat only.
if you click the seat belt in the fixer.......you will find the light getting off....

thanx

We have a 2001 V4 Ford Escape, and while driveing today the seatbelt light began to rapidly flash. The owners manual does not have any indication as to what this means, and the seatbelt for the driver was...


There is a TSB to replace chafed wires on the seat belt pretensioners. Most common cause.
Both front seats have to be removed to perform the TSB. It involves replacing the male and female connector to the seat belt buckle pretensioner. In an accident, it fires and temporarily tightens the seat belt to take up slack. I think TSB 05-17-5.

92 chevy caprice instrument panel light flashes infl rst what does that mean?


The flashing light is indicating the air bag module has detected a system failure within the air bag system. It could be as simple as a seat belt switch or as much as an air bag that has failed. You will need to have the system scanned at a qualified repair facility or your local dealer to determine what the exact problem is.
Good luck.
