I have a C203 (03 plate) and the passenger seatbelt warning (buzzer and warning message on driver informtion display) keeps activating whilst driving when the passenger seat is empty. I have temporarily fixed the problem by plugging the passenger seatbelt in but this method is very inconvenient when carrying passengers.

Does anyone know if there are any typical problems with the passenger seat. As it is a coupe it has quite a complicated opening mechanism that seems to to stress the harness under the seat.

I am cautious of unplugging any of the connectors under the seat to check them as I do not want to activate any airbag warning lamps. Also I do not know which conncetors are related to the occupancy sensor

anybody got any suggestions?? Can I get the dealer to disable this feature??:confused:

Any idea which connectors/wires to fiddle around with. I have two black and two yellow.
I think the yellow are SRS related?

Car has manual heated seats on the passenger side
