took the seat out today, amongst other jobs, to have a look at the sensor pad. good excuse to clean under there actually and make sure the runners etc are clean and greased;
turn the seat over and there is the pressure pad;
with the pad/mat removed from the seat, you will find the pressure pad underneath the rubber mat;
theres even a nice white patch, so you know where to put it back
now i did`nt bother doing a continuity test at this stage, as it was now off, so it may as well be looked at.
if you carefully pull apart, the pads from the sponge, you`ll see the contacts inside. i went over them all with some very fine wet and dry;
once the contacts have been cleaned, carefully stick back together, the pads, with the foam padding inbetween. i just used superglue. there are as well, two small `pegs` each end, make sure those go back.
once it was all back together, i put the two probes into the plug, from the muti-meter and individually pressed, each contact patch on the pad. continuity was perfect on all contacts.
got it all back together and back on the seat;
make sure you clip the connector plug back in place, so it dos`nt get trapped if/when the seat moves!
anyway, after it was all put back together, i tested it. switched on the ignition, all lights came on, including seatbelt warning light, but it went out with all the others, so i don`t know now. must be an issue somewhere else
