Hi,
Take a plastic bag and cover everything around the buckle - spray the sticking unit with WD 40 or some similar spray. After a while you may have to spray it again.

Best of it

Seat belt alarm stays on even with belt fastened.can I disconnect or repair myself


You can disconnect it yourself. There is a wire lead that comes from the seatbelt fastener, you may need to lift the carpet up a bit. This lead will have a connector, dis connect it at the connector. This will deactivate the alam, however your seatbelt light will remain on. From here you can see where the malfunctioning switch is, if you feel confident to change it.

Security light flashing


I have this problem if I jump in and start the car too quickly. It will shut off and the security light flashes. Thankfully it never happens when I'm on the road! I think it's related to the seatbelt switch. There's a wire under the driver seat connected to a sensor in the seatbelt buckle that tells the computer when the seatbelt is fastened. I tried spraying WD-40 into the seatbelt buckle to clean it, which helped, but it is still loose and intermittent. When it happens the remote won't do anything to get the car unlocked and started. I just have to wait ten minutes for the security system to reset itself.

2006 grand cherokee seat belt


Have the same problem in my 98 Toyota Rav4. I squirted the female buckle (bolted to seat, not holding strap harness) with wannabe WD-40 lubricant from the $1 store, and it seem to have solved the problem. I'm guessing the spring mechanism is worn out, which is why the harness buckle won't lock. Another solution is to replace the female lock buckle with an identical part from the used parts junkyard store.

The seatbelt light on the dash stays "on," even when everyone has their belt on, but I don't bother servicing that. If yours have an audible alarm instead of an indicator light on the dash, locate the source of the alarm sound and disconnect the wires to silence the sound.

With key on and engine running,clear the passenger seat ////// buckle then un-unbuckle to clear warning.

Also check the weight sensor and buckle connector.
Car wash clean can accident disconnect (or damage) this connector during vacuum.

Warning light came on this morning, figure of a man with the seatbelt. What does this indicate?


This is the seatbelt indicator, its not seeing that your seatbelt is fastened ifthe light stays on and the chime keeps going off.

There is a switch inthe seatbelt that closes when the seatbelt is buckled, and if not, thelight stays on and the chime goes off.

There are a couple reasons thiscould happen. It could be a wiring issue going to the seatbelt buckle,or more likely the buckle itself. Your truck is pretty new, so if youare under 36,000 miles the repair would normally be covered underwarranty.

Also, I suggest check the Repair Manual for Jeep-WK-Grand-Cherokee-Section-08O-Restraints (page 473 and next, for Seat Belt)

Hope helps with this (remember rated this) Good luck.

Turn the seat belt buzzer off


Usually what I do is reroute the seatbelt behind my seat, or buckle the seat belt prior to sitting. Unless you want to rewire the sensor with a toggle switch if you have any electrical knowledge. Hope this helps.
