Disabling seatbelt warning sound

Recommended Posts

Have a brand new exige. Love it. However, looks like a passenger seat occupancy sensor is bad. It just starts beeping... but when the seat is pushed a little it stops... but after few minutes it starts beeping again. This is why I think that its not a cable/connector issue, but a sensor issue. I would like to disable it. Any idea how to do it?

Unless things have changed (or I'm getting confused), only the drivers side has a sensor for the seatbelt being done up. Because of that, it's not even got an occupancy sensor. Just a 'seat belt not done up' sensor.

I'm 99.9% certain that when I took my seats out only one of them had wiring to it.

Interesting. Thanks for the photos. However, driver's seat is on the left side of the car for me :) Waiting for the Schroth... will remove the seats than and check cabling. 


I guess there must be a sensor in the passenger seat, because when it works (no beeping) and I put a wallet or a phone on a seat, it starts beeping.

I would assume with the occupancy sensor disconnected, the passenger airbag will go off regardless if there's anyone in the seat or not if you're in an accident.
