The trunk catch is adjustable - look at the bar the latch catches on. It is mounted to the trunk with 2 screws or bolts. Slightly loosed those and move the catch up just a tiny bit. Re - tighten bolts and try closing. If the latch doesn't catch, move that bar up a tiny bit more until it catches. Don't move it too much as water will get in around the seal. The seatbelt latch can be replaced either with one from a junkyard or an aftermarket seatbelt assembly from an auto parts store. As far as the no start I need more info - does the starter turn over but the engine doesn't catch or, when you turn the key does nothing happen or a clicking noise? Let me know _ I'll do what I can!
Hope this helps!

    OK - I suspect you solenoid is going out. The solenoid is mounted together with the starter and needs to be removed as a unit. The solenoid can be purchased separately from the starter but you'll need to find out the price of each and decide if it's better to just get the whole unit or just the solenoid alone. Usually the solenoid comes with directions to install onto the starter but that depends on your level of skill and ability - it's not exactly easy to do but not impossible either. If you have a local mechanic you may be better served to just dump the whole shebang in their lap and let them figure out the best route to go. I hope this helps and please rate my solution!! Let me know if you need additional info - I'll do my best!

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.

Trunk wont stay closed

Several times I've been able to fix this problem by tightening the bolts that hold the trunk latch.
If that doesn't work, order and install a new latch. After fixing the latch, find a friend, and
get into the trunk, and make sure that the emergency release (for trapped children) also
still works.

There is a pinging sound in my van until I reach 15 miles per hour then it goes off by itself. Sometimes it just keeps pinging while I am idling at a stop light. How do I turn this irritating sound off?

You have either a broken switch inside your seatbelt buckle, or you're not wearing it. Thats a reminder to buckle up. if you are wearing your seatbelt have the buckle switch checked.

There is no by pass seqwuence or code to eliminate this safety device.

My rear seatbelt in my subaru outback is locked and wont pull out to buckle up. Can it be fixed

I assume you've already worked the seat belt end back and forth with force. Did the belt move at all? Did you remove the rear seat bottom cusion from the car? That will give you additional leverage on the belt.
If the belt twisted the last time it was used and then rolled up, you need to go to the dealer or an upholstery shop for help.
