Try to code this out or bypass it or whatever, but if you canít, I think a small, cut-off, stubby,
male belt buckle inserted in the buckle receiver solves this issue without having the full seat belt draped across the seat in the closed
Position..

When you have a passenger, pull the stubby belt buckle out.

I managed to program this parameter in the "KMB" controlunit with NCS Expert and it works !!!
No more seat belt alarm chimes.


Thank you Clavurion for helping me out here

Insert a belt extension. Mine has the passenger seat bypassed too. It thinks someone is always sitting on it. A belt extension with a clip solves the chime issues. I tell passengers to unbuckle the first button. The original clip button releases the extension.

Please understand, I am just looking for a way to bypass the seatbelt lock so that the car "thinks" it's always locked.
There must be a way to simulate this with the 2 wires coming from the seatbeltlock.


And by the way I tried to code it out with INPA but I was not able to write down the new coded files to the airbag control unit.
You don't have to do it, the dealer does. There is a recall for the seat occupancy mat.

Recall had a limit that excluded our 2001. Fortunately it only happened when it was cold in the cabin in winter.

Well that's unfortunate.
