    I cant get the buckle to work at all so that process will not work. I am going to get it replaced but they said it will take 2 weeks to order the part but in the mean time is it possible to unplug the sensor?

You may wish to try the brown one i believe this is the 1 otherwise 1 of 2 other suggestions come to mind unplug them 1 by 1 until it goes out but ensure the rest of all your other options still function

or follow the sound to the buzzer itself usually under the steering column possibly 3 screws removal is necessary to obtain this the box should be white or Grey to the dash access panel under the wheel

Hello. Your vehicle has a feature whereby you can disable the "buzzer" without unplugging anything. Here is what you do:

Safety Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating


Preparation

Apply the parking brake before deactivating/activating the belt minder.


Place the gear selector lever in PARK or NEUTRAL (manual transaxle).


Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.


Close all the vehicle doors.


Unbuckle the driver safety belt.


Place the parking lamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position.


Deactivating/Activating

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)


Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately 1 to 2 minutes).

3. NOTE: Steps 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off.
For seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt in the unbuckled state. After this step, the air bar warning indicator illuminates for 3 seconds.

Within 10 seconds after the air bar warning indicator turns off, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.

This disables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently enabled. As confirmation, the air bar warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
This enables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently disabled. As confirmation, the air bag warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds followed by another flash sequence of 4 times per second for 3 seconds.


After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.

Drivers seat belt releases spontaniouly


If your drivers seat belt is releasing spontaneously, I would suggest that you replace the seat belt buckle mechanism immediately because, if confronted with an emergency situation, someone could be endanger, like the driver of this vehicle. If you not under warranty, go to salvage yard and find your vehicle and find the seat belt buckle mechanism to replace your current one.

To enable or disable the seat belt warning chime on your 2005 Jaguar Type S

1. Ensure the front passenger seat is unoccupied.

NOTE:

Steps two to five must be completed within 60 seconds.

2. Turn the ignition to the RUN position (do not start the engine).

3. Buckle the driver safety belt buckle and wait until the seat belt warning lamp extinguishes.

4. Unbuckle the driver safety belt buckle and wait until the seat belt warning lamp illuminates.

5. Repeat Steps three and four a further eight times.

6. When the driver safety belt buckle is unbuckled for the ninth time a single chime will be heard. The single chime is acknowledgement that the beltminder feature has been disabled.

The beltminder feature will be disabled until the above process (Steps one to six) are repeated. Upon repeating the process the beltminder feature will be reactivated

Hi I have a 1999 ford explorer and the drivers side seat belt won't plug in is this something I can fix myself?


If you mean that the buckle won't lock into the latch, or receiving part of the seat belt mechanism, yes. The latch probably needs to be replaced, but I would recommend having the dealer replace it so that the torque specifications and legal obligations are met. You might have something in it that could be cleaned out with compressed air, but you want to make sure it locks securely in the event of an accident.
