    I also have a 97 TJ with a constant seat belt light. When the vehicle is first cranked the light blinks then stays on. You would have to be crazy to drive a Jeep without wearing the seat belt so simply buckling up is not the answer.

Look under the drivers seat there is a plug that may be unplugged or broken this is what tells the light to stay on plug it in or try unplugging it and see what happens, on some of the 200 and up models the seat belt light may have some affect on airbags working properly, I have not found this to be the case on 97 model.

Air bag light flashes 5 times then 1 time

That flashing indicates fault code 51. Fault code 51 indicates a problem with the driver's seat belt circuit. The seat belt buckle has a switch in it to determine if the belt is buckled up when the seat is occupied [determined by a pressure sensor in the seat bottom]. The switch in the buckle is either bad or the wiring to the switch is either short or open circuited.
Use of a computer scan tool can help narrow down the problem. There are four different scan tool fault codes relating to code 51. They are B2432, B2433, B2434 & B2435. These codes will give you more defined information on the actual fault. Most common faults are either a bad switch in the seat belt buckle or damaged wiring to that switch. Damaged wiring is usually caused by the driver placing objects under the driver's seat, which damage the wiring coming out of the seat belt. It is also possible to have a bad seat belt computer [Restraints Control Module or RCM]. A bad RCM is not common. Check for damage to the seat belt wiring under the driver's seat. Best to remove the seat and lift up the carpeting to do this. If no physical damage or water corrosion damage is present, replace the seat belt. After repairs, disconnect the battery for 1 minute to clear the fault code from the RCM's memory.

2005 town and country touring i want to disconnect the seatbelt warning light and chime?

1. Turn the ignition switch to the off position and buckle the seat belt
2. Turn the ignition switch to run (engine does not need to be running), wait for the seat belt light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds, unbuckle and rebuckle the drivers seat belt at least 3 times, ending with the seat belt buckled.
4. Turn the ignition key to the off position. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.

It can be reactivated by repeating these steps.

The alert will be deactivated but the warning light will continue to stay on will the belt is unfastened.

The seat belt and air bag light stay on in my 2002Jeep Cherokee. The mechanic says the problem is the drivers side seat belt buckle. Is he correct?

He would have run a diagnostic scan of the system to decide that, so he could be right and he could be wrong.

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.

My 1993 Elantra's seat belt audible/light indicator continually goes off, even when belts are buckled. The only time light/sound indicator turn off is when the passenger side door opens.

There is a switch in the seat belt latch that is probably worn out and it is sensing that the seat belt is not being used.
If this is a problem it should be easy to fool it into thinking the seat belt is connected by finding the wires that run to that switch and connect them together.

My seat belt light stays on in my BMW Z4. Is there a solution to this.

The contact in your seat belt buckle needs cleaned, (when you click the belt into the buckle the connection is not being completed keeping the dash light on.) Try inserting a thin flat blade screw driver with a lint free cloth dipped in rubbing alcohol into the buckle and slide to and fro gently. do this a few times moving cloth o a clean spot each time till no dirt shows.

Srs airbag light is on on my 99 pontiac grand prix

If the seat belt light comes on intermittently with the belt buckled, it may have a bad switch in the buckle or a loose connection @ the switch. This may also set a diagnostic trouble code in the srs control module & keep the srs airbag light on.
