2001 Hyundai Elntra GLS. Seat belt warning - no chime, no light on the dash, altho the lamp prbly burnt out as did my chk eng light which I replaced. Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs? I don't know which fuse is S/B but all fuses look intact, even in the fuse block under the hood. Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '01 Hyundai? Elntra GLS 4 door sedan Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far? I bought it in 2016 so to verify the previous owner didn't disable, I lifted the drivers seat, all plugs connected and sensor is attached and dropped the dash apron under the steering wheel to inspect the door chime, which functions with the key in the ignition. I intend to bring it to my mechanic but I want to eliminate or identify the fix and if it's worth the $'s getting it fixed Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? This occurs with both passenger and driver seats

Fuse #2 is cluster and is good
Automotive Expert
fuse 2 is etacs. and it controls the chime for the seat belt. you either have a bad switch in the buckle or the wire between the switch and ETACS is broken.

Am calling
Automotive Expert
see attached schematics. I do not do phone calls.

It must be circuit after the seat sensors since both seats do not trigger the alert.
Automotive Expert
only the driver's seat belt is involved.. see if that fuse has 12 volts to it. the [passengers seat belt does not set off the chime one way or the other

Pdf won't open on my phone. Let me take it inside on my tablet
Automotive Expert

Hey remember me, seat belt alert 2001 Hyundai Elntra... it was a dirty contact in the buckle socket. I shot it w/a bunch of contact cleaner, ran through a piece of T shirt on a thin metal strip then hit it with canned air.I mean it is practically buried in the seat cushion, and living in my car for over 1,100 days it's no wonder it was jammed with crud... mostly food crumbs and stuffNow I need an alarm stopper clip plug for when I'm idling with the heat or a/c on waiting up to 2 hours for my wife. LolThanks. You were a big help
