There is a switch in the seat that operates when someone is sitting on it. This will operate the seat belt warning if someone sits on it and does not do up their seat belt. It appears that this switch is intermittently faulty. If you remove the seat (usually only 4 bolts) you should find the wires to the switch and can either bypass it or replace it.
Check all your seat belt attachments! This seem to be a leading oroblem with all vehicles that has a few miles on them. All it takes is wasting coffie or soda's into one of those locking mechanisms and it thinks the seat belt is not locked. All these vehicles have seat sensors too! If you sat anything more than 3 to 5 lbs on the seat, it thinks someone is sitting on the seat and the chime will continually go off and drive you nuts. Hope this helps you with your problem Sir
Does putting the safety belt on have any effect? Generally the system works by having pressure sensors in the seats. Anyone sat down without a seatbelt on whilst the engine is running triggers the chimes. If you are carrying a box of heavy items on one of the seats this will have the same effect. The only thing is put the seatbelt buckle together.
Look for the plunger coming out of the frame where the door hinge is. Is it broken? When you open the door the plunger is released (comes out) and grounds sending the signal to chime, however this should only happen if your lights are on or key is in. The chime controller may have failed and that's why it also could stay on. Does it happen when the key is in, while driving, or even always stays on? Need more info.
Open the drivers door and look at the hindge area and you will see a black rubber accordian tube between the door and the pillar.This is the protective cover for the wiring harness. Now take a screw driver and stick it into the latch that latches when u close the door and trip the latch. Now start up the vehicle and wiggle the black tube and see if you can duplicate the concern. If so then pull the cover back and inspect the wires for a broken wire. these models are bad for this happening.
There is a switch in the seat belt latch whe your sitting in the seat this will ba the part o the right side, see if something went into the latch part? or the switch is bad i think you have to replace the belt to fix the switch
That door chime was driving me crazy too. It turned out to be really easy to pull the power cord from the chime. If you fold down the glove box by pulling the two plugs out from the inside, you can see the chime up behind the dash just to the left of the glove box. Just pull out the cord attached by removing the clip and you are golden.
Ahhhh. Sweet relief. I have been chime free in my accent for 2 months, and it makes for a much more enjoyable car.
