What swings me is that he said the bulb was flickering first Norman. This indicates a slow failure elsewhere as bulbs just blow!!!

I have had a bulb filament connect and weld itself fixed after being disconnect due to vibration. (of course the correct solution is a new bulb)

got a feeling its the pressure sensor in the seat. when i went out earlier, the light did come on the dash pod, but when i moved my bum about, it went off and on to my movement.
not top of the list at the mo, but will have a look when i can.

NOPE :roll:

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;

Image

turn the seat over and there is the pressure pad;

Image

with the pad/mat removed from the seat, you will find the pressure pad underneath the rubber mat;

Image

theres even a nice white patch, so you know where to put it back ;)

Image

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;

Image

Image

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;

Image

make sure you clip the connector plug back in place, so it dos`nt get trapped if/when the seat moves!


Image

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 :roll:

Other pressure pads from a domestic alarm system for example could be used I suppose and could possibly be more inexpensive to buy and mount.

no!
the issue is with the dash light. when i turn on the ignition, the seatbelt warning light is supposed to stay on, when the others goe out, but it is`nt, its going out when they do, as if the buckle IS in, but it is`nt.
beginning to wonder if the buckle stalk is faulty.
