Bora-chiara, I found this exact situation in my 2001 nb tdi. I don't know anyone who has tested it. Try the buckle now, it will work. You'll see one that indicates whether the seatbelt is currently inserted in the buckle. When it comes to seat belts — a big component to car safety, it is not uncommon to see a stuck seat belt buckle. This leads to the seat belt warning on the instrument cluster, as well as the buckle chime.
The American seat belt buckle switch adjusts the firing, accordingly, to protect both belted and unbelted occupants. Notice: Do not forcibly insert the service wire into the terminals of the connector when connecting. On the driver's side you will notice there is a third, center wire in the 2 position. I originally planned on clipping off the wiring connector and soldering the resistor in place. The passenger side has the exact same plug, just without a center, 2 wire installed. On the driver's side you will notice there is a third, center wire in the 2 position. No way it's going to fall out now, unless it's tugged.
Seatbelt sensor tells the system someone is there, the mat and seat sensor are an attempt to make sure the passenger is the right size to use the airbag. If no one is sitting in the seat, then it doesn't deploy. If it is, carefully reassemble the buckle and you try locking again. But it gets the point across. The American-market seat belt buckle switches determine the threshold and moment to fire the airbags.
I tried the aforementioned contact cleaner which did nothing. It is one among those. I don't care if the passenger airbag went off needlessly, as long as it goes off in any situation, passenger or not. If that is clear, inspect the male part of the buckle to see if something stuck there or if it is deformed. Well, when that happens, neither do you need to pull at it frantically, nor replace it right away. Step 6: When All Else Fails, Replace If the cam or the springs do not move at the push of the button, odds are that the damage is permanent and replacement is the only option.
It wasn't my intent to take them along the way but my mom was fascinated with the process and just started snapping them. In case the obstruction inside the female part is big in most cases, a coin , proceed to step 3. I originally planned on clipping off the wiring connector and soldering the resistor in place. You should be good to go. They are there to total cars not save lives. The leads on these resistors are just the right size to provide good friction and make a solid contact. For illustration purposes, I removed the seat from the vehicle and then the buckle from the seat before accessing the switch.
However, this job can likely be done nearly as well without removing the seat or buckle. She still has to pick up the focusing feature on her new iPhone. And if it were to fall out - no big deal. We are going to simply add a 100 ohm resistor into the system to make the airbag computer think the seat belts are always latched. I'm not exactly sure how it works, but there is a cable coming out of the mechanical unit which I think triggers it. The car was on 207k miles and I was really sceptic and was vry dirty the car sits probably 2 years with open sunroof somewhere.
Thanks again for the tutorial. I first found an obvious break in yellow wire about an inch from the latch assy and repaired it. I decided against this once I felt how secure of a friction fit the resistor makes. I did not want to pry apart latch and believed testing wires at latch entry was good. I don't care if the passenger airbag went off needlessly, as long as it goes off in any situation, passenger or not. Keeps it further secured and away from rear passengers feet.
Click on the button so you can measure parameters in real time I think it's measuring block 3, but I can't remember. Mine would randomly come on every few months and I was getting both the driver and passenger side codes. No way it's going to fall out now, unless it's tugged. Conversely, if they are, the airbag need not go off until a more severe crash and can fire later. Thats pretty much my problem. Take the butter knife or a similar object and insert in the female part.
I read your post and took and checked the push button and found that a small plastic piece was stuck there which I took out with a knife and lo the buckle went inside. This way is also fully reversible. Hint: Perform the inspection using parts from a normal vehicle if possible. The issue is that the U. If the code is a seat belt switch, where would the connection fault be? Fixed it as described and reassembled, reset code and all seems ok now.
