Re: Seatbelt light

Does it not go off when you fasten your seat belt?

Re: Seatbelt light

I would remove the bulb and be done with it.

Re: Seatbelt light

That is the lazy mans way. You didn't fix anything. So, your alternator light comes on and your oil light comes on. You going to pull those bulbs too ? Replace the seat belt
timer modual. They have been known to drain the battery.

Re: Seatbelt light

It would be different if it were the alternator or oil light, but it's the old annoying seat belt light lol. Speaker King & I are both from the south, we're lazy

Re: Seatbelt light

Be that as it may but maybe i'm just from the old school. You don't, or i don't just pop out bulbs to solve a problem. The warning light is there for a reason. They didn't find a box of them at the factory and had to put them somewhere. Why is there such a difference between the seat belt light and the oil or alt. light ? It is still a warning light
that tells the car owner there is something wrong. You are supposed to pay more attention to the important warning lights but a warning light is a warning light. Just my
input. Get it fixed. You can get the modual at any auto wreckers for almost free. I'm
probably the most lazy person in the north but i don't like anything in any of my cars not
working. Actually i'm wrong. The only thing in my cars that don't work is me. L.O.L.

Because the oil or alt light would tell me something is wrong with my car. The seat belt light is simply a nag light telling you to 'Buckle Up' And since we already know that's all its going to tell us, the simplest thing to do is to pull the bulb.
