My seatbelt alarm will not go off.

Asked by Jun 29, 2017 at 11:40 AM about the 2005 Chrysler Sebring Base Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The seatbelt alarm won't go off because the sensor
in the buckle is broke and I need to replace the
buckle. But I am unable to do that at this time so I
need another solution. I need to disable the alarm
completely. The instructions in the manual to turn
off the alarm doesn't work because the buckle is
broken. So I need to pull the fuse or wire but that's
the problem. I don't know if it's a fuse or a wire, or
where it's at, or how to disconnect it. Any help
would be greatly appreciated!

The sensor is inside the receiving end of the buckle. You will have to replace it, it should be a 20-$40 used part on ebay and easy to fix with basic tools. You cannot disable it unless you rig the sensor to detect the belt, which unless you are an electrical engineer, you should look at option 1.

So there is no wire or fuse that I can just pull out? Ugh :(

Chuck some headphones in...that's your other choice
