On start up I get a warning of three little red folk with seat belts on, it takes up all the information display. It can be cancelled by turning the trip computer knob.
Has anybody else had / got this?
Is this the seat belt fault that should have been fixed at PDI?

Hi,
i just saw on German flea bay, the sale of a dummy seat belt ... now in principle that it not very new and interesting ... part of thetext that came with it kinda was tho ...




http://www.ebay.de/itm/Anti-Gurtwarner-Gurtalarm-Opel-Adam-Agila-Mokka-Meriva-Zafira-Antara-Ampera-/280940476854?pt=DE_Autoteile&hash=item41695b79b6<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />

"Sein Hauptnutzen liegt darin, den lÃstigen Anschnall-Alarmton zu unterdrücken, Wenn dieser nicht erwünscht wird. Der Alarm ist GrundsÃtzlich eine sinnvolle Idee und sollte ursprünglich der Sicherheit dienen. Jedoch reicht bereits bei vielen PKW-Modellen das Gewicht einer Flasche Mineralwasser auf dem Beifahrer- oder Rücksitz aus, um den Alarm auszulösen. Kurzstreckenfahrer sind teilweise von der Gurtpflicht befreit.... Es gibt viele Gründe...."

According to this it claims that even a small bottle of water or anything else placed on the passenger or back seats, will set of the seat belt alarm ... a winter coat or gloves could do the trick at this time of the year ...

Can anyone who had issues, confirm if their seats were full empty? Or maybe something might have triggered the alarm?

And IF there is a weight trigger ... there can be a fault somewhere at any time ... maybe even by lowering the seats down and putting them back up again ... wires should be properly secured ... but wouldn't be the first time ... food for thought ...

Maybe you could try leaving the seat belts in the backdone up like they would be if someone was sat there. But then you would never know there is a faultif they are always done up.

Do you have any update on what happened when yours went in for the seat belt fix?

On seat belts whats the best way to extend the seatbelts as i find the seat belt socket to be very short for the seat belt.
Do you mean you find it hard to reach the socket or the seat belts aren't long enough?

I suppose the only problem, although some might see it as an advantage, is that the seat belt warning buzzer will be silenced
