How to stop the chime on seatbelt on 2005 dodge dakota


Are you wearing your seatbelt when it chimes? If not, wearing your seatbelt will shut the chime off. If it chimes when you have it on, the switch inside the seatbelt locking mechanism may not be functioning properly, and the mechanism may need replaced. Look at the wiring next to your seat and follow the wires that leave the locking mechanism. They travel under the seat and plug into a wiring connector near the rear of the seat. Make sure it is plugged in and check the wires for damage.

Driver`s seat does not work, where to find the fuse compartment?


If you have the owners manual, you can find what you are looking for under fuse panels in the appendix, It will show you where the fuse panel is located, and where you can find the fuse in it. If you don't have a manual, you can probably find it at autozone.com. simply put in your vehicle info in,under the repair guide section. you also may want to check the connector under the seat, its possible someone may have accidently disconnected it with a foot, or something that was under the seat. inspect the harness for damage, it may have been pinched while moving the seat.If you have more than one power seat,and the others are functioning,it is likely to be the seat control switch,wiring harness,or motor. there also may be something wedged in the mechanisms that move the seat.more than likely your fuse panel will be under the dash, on the drivers side,or in the end of the dashboard,visisble when the door is open on the drivers side. hope this helps!

SRS dashboard light on mitsubishi galant 2001


Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.


Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat

(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity2_bing.gif problem.

I DO NOT disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s)

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Under My seat is a wire with yellow connector.


Probably for some sensor located in car seat telling computer that someone is seated there and possibly activating air bag circuit. Those bags are expensive and you do not want opening when not necessary.

SRS light remains on after starting (engine) Why?


When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.
