Q: Passenger seatbelt light stays on

Seatbelt light stays on passenger side

My car has 10025 miles.

Typically, when you have a passenger seat warning light on, there will be diagnostic warning codes associated with it, that can be pulled using a diagnostic scan tool. Normally, they will show that there is a problem with a seat sensor, and it will need to be replaced. I would suggest pulling the codes first to rule out that there is a wiring or control unit problem. The sensors can be mounted to the female receptacle for the seat belt, under the seat, or mounted to the seat track. Some diagnostic time will need to be spent in order to identify exactly which component has failed. If you feel you could use a hand in locating the failed component, contact a certified mechanic, like those available at YourMechanic.com.
