As it is a safety feature, it is unwise to disconnect it. A replacement buckle should be used as this contains the switch. Check also any connectors that may be loose around this area.

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.

Seat belt alarm fault


On an alarm problem this could be one of couple of possibilities, first check the sensor leads comming from the seatbelt assy itselfe, you may have to remove the seat that has the problem, look for a connector that may be particularly unplugged, next if there was any pop or juice spilled into the belt reciprocal it may neen to have a cleaning solvent applied to the aera inside the receptacle. Lastly search for this fault on the dealership website Q and A's.

My seat belt alarm keeps dinging even though my seat belt is secured/fastened. how do I make it stop?


There is a small wired connection that leads to your set belt buckle under your seat. My bet is that is loose or came disconnected as you put something under your seat. It will have a small plastic connection point in the line.

Seat belt alarm doesnt shut off when Waring seat belt i want to disconnect the alarm


Probably just as easy to repair the fault than to disconnect or remove the alarm, which could be just plugged into the fuse box or more likely buried in the dashboard to discourage people from disconnecting it.

The alarm is generally switched off by a switch built into the seatbelt stalk. The presence of wires will verify this. The wires might have been damaged or become unplugged or the switch stopped working. Lots of dust and stuff finds its way down there.

I suggest you take care not to confuse any wiring for seatbelt pretensioners.

Every time I go over a big bump in road one ,two or even three rear seat belt lights come on and then start pinging/ringing and do not stop until either I switch engine off or fasten rear seat belts.


The sensors in the seat detect weight and assume there are occupants in the seats without the seat belts done up and this then triggers the warnings. If you are carrying items on the seat that bounce when you hit a bump that may trigger the alarms. Even movement in the seat unit itself when you hit a decent bump could trigger the sensors.

Just keep the rear seat belts done up and you will not have a problem with false warnings.

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.

89 cougar ls seat belt light staying on, even when belts are work


The switch in the seat belt unit has gone bad. it will need to be replaced. no way to disconnect it that i know of.

If its disconnected, the car sees that as the switch being activated as if the belts are not being used.
