    Default seat belt warning not on

    Whilst I am not too worried, but having purchased my new car (06 plate), I have noticed that the seat belt warning buzzer and light do not function.

    Might this have been disabled? Is it easy to re-enable? If there is no on-dash warning could it be a fault? (in case it is possible to disable the sound but not the flashing icon on the dash)

    I am assuming this is not an MOT or any other requirement - and is just there as an annoying reminder at times.

    Thanks - didn't work from the moment I drove the car - only had it a couple of weeks.

    I guess Network Q check doesn't cover this sort of thing.

    I also hate the sound - so I am not too worried if it is quiet.

    If they get it working (including the dash warning) is it possible to disable and re-enable the sound?

    Strange, because seatbelt warnings give manufacturers extra marks during NCAP tests.

    It does, but how often do wear of faults sneeking through the checks!

    It should sound a warning buzzer when the vehicle is moving, the same as when the handbrake is applied when moving
    Mine also gives a warning buzzer when a door is open and the vehicle is moving

    Yup, over 10 Km/h the seatbelt alarm chimes away (it did in my '54/05 SRi )
