SOURCE: Seat belt problem

In my past experience with wiring in a car and seat belt lights I have found that most every newer vehicle will have a single negative lead wire running to some sort of switch in the seat belt locking mechanism. When the male end of the belt is placed into the female lock the switch will be depressed and grounded to complete a circut then turn off the light. If any switch is damaged and does not complete the circut then the light will not turn off. This may be the problem but it could also be a simple computer glitch in your vehicle. Another problem could also just be a blown fuse that triggers the light to come on as a precaution. A call to your local auto parts store may be able to help you more. I am just a self learning mechanic and not very computer savy.

How do i disconnect seatbelt chime mitsubishi mirage


On many cars, the seat belt sensor is also used to trigger the airbag. Investigate whether this is the case on your car before doing anything drastic to your seat belt alarm.Locate the wire under the driver seat that connects to the buckle with the release button. It should be towards the rear on the right hand side, where you plug the belt into.Follow the wire to an area under the seat where you will be able to fit your hands into.Look for two wires running together. Cut through both of them and slightly separate the ends apart.Use electrical tape to cover the wire ends so they do not short out on each other or metal under the seat.Tuck the wires away from the seat brackets so they do not get tangled if you move your seat.OR>>>>

On the side of the receptacle (where you would slide the buckle into) are two non-tamper torx screws.
Remove the screws using a hollow T10 bit.Carefully remove the plastic side cover. It contains a spring loaded slide switch.Remove the small spring and slide the switch down to its lowermost position.You can double check by watching the seat belt light on the dash go out.Replace the plastic cover and screws.Store the small spring for use in the future. This way the system thinks the buckle is always in so the light and chime won't alert at all.

Broken seat belt buckle


If I had the problem I would look at a junkyard or on line at e-bay for a replacement. You will need to get the buckle and the belt that it is attached to that goes down to the floor down through the crack in the seat.
Remember the buckle receiver is made for the certain belt in the front and rear seats. I have often tried to put the wrong belt in a buckle and it would not fit. ( Example: the right belt goes in the right buckle.)
Be blessed.

Srs light is on but everything is working..


Known problem for SRS light might be cause by bad seat belt buckle. Honda seat belt buckle and belts are lifetime warranty(not cover if broken because of abuse). Have your honda dealer scan it for code. They might charge you $55 to scan for the code(ex:09-3 driver seat buckle failure), but if it is a for buckle or belt code then everything is free including the scan(labor and part).
good luck

The seat belt clasp is non-functional. how do i repair it?


Usually they are not reparable. More than likely a spring has broken. But on more than one occasion I have actually found some denomination coin in the 'buckle'. And once removed, it operated okay. If you go to replace it, it is described as a buckle.

Seat belt buckle receiver will not accept buckle. The latching mechanism is stuck open and doesn't recede so the buckle (male) can't insert properly


If it's not a coin, look inside the buckle again, compare it with a properly working latch. If you see something inside the broken latch that looks like it may be protruding out from the back, try pushing it back with a flathead or key, then pop the push button back up with the same tool you used... I have to do this each time I get out of my truck because the spring is broken. It still should work fine, it's just missing a spring that reset the latch to it's resting position. If you're still skeptical about it though, it's like a 25 dollar fix with installation.
