Anyone have this issue? When I'm driving without a passenger, the passenger seat belt reminder light illuminates and stays on. Is there some sort of computer or weight sensor in the seat that trips this indicator light? I've noticed that sometimes, if I push down on the seat or move the seat forward or back, the light will go off. For the most part, however, it comes back on and remains on.

Simple fix...

You open the drivers door and sit down, and put on YOUR seatbelt. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the right until the car starts. Put in reverse and back up, then put it in drive and GO TO THE DEALERSHIP!

I took a slightly more direct method. When I replaced my radio, I just didn't plug the wiring harness back in for the light. It was getting on my nerves too.

Upgrades:
Vent visors, hood bra, Silverstars, 4xPolk db650, Kenwood DPX701, Kicker ZX460 & ZR360, 2x10" Kicker Solobarics, SWI-ALP adapter, Sirius Sportster

That occupant classification system is more trouble than it's worth, in my opinion. Honestly, I'd rather have the airbag go off on an empty seat and spend the extra $1,500 than have it not fire if it malfunctions when somebody's sitting there.

That whole seat belt nanny system is wacky. When my wife is in the passenger seat with the seat belt on, if she shifts her weight off the seat for a moment (say to reach back and slap the kids around) the passenger seat belt light starts flashing and the airbag off light comes on until the car is restarted. There might by a TSB on this "feature" - gotta look into it.

You know I was part of the "Roy vs Hyundai" Class Action Suit with the same OCS problem on the 05 Elantra. Roy won $5000, his Lawers collected Thousands, and the rest of us got a paper to put with other important Elantra papers

In my opinion that's not a bad idea. If you read the manual it states that the led will appear as long as there's not passenger in the sit, also, the airbag doesn't activate when there's a baby, todler or someone under weight in the sit. I for one like that idea. Why should my air bag deploy on that side if there's no one in the sit or if my little boy is sitting in the sit (which he shouldn't but what if?)?

Simple way is to have a passenger in the sit, and make sure they are sitting right...i don't want anyone sitting and recling like they are in their living room (system is deactivated when you do that as well). The idea is good and I don't think it needs a fix. Remember, once the air bag is deployed, the car is basically totalled. so, if someone hits you from the passenger side/front, your car is gone, even if it's an easy fix.

That's just my 2 cents.

I just see my light blink at me sometimes when I'm driving from work. I'll have my bag sitting in the seat, must be enough weight to trigger it. And yeah, this whole seat sensor thing with it's multitude of lights is a pain. I'd rather just stick a sign on my dash saying "ride at your own risk", since most of the time I drive alone anyway.

Hello,

This past week I purchased a 2007 Hyundai Sonata Limited. I now drive my Wrangler on the weekends when it is nice. I might end up selling it.

So far this forum has been very helpful. While driving home from work I noticed my passenger seat belt reminder light kept flashing for about 5 minutes. Do people still have this problem, did the dealer fix it?

Thank you all for your Solutions, Questions, Opinions. I hope this car works out for me.
