Driver's seat belt light
#1
Hi Guys

I have noticed over the past few days that the driver's seat belt light takes quite a while to go out.
There are no other passengers in the car and nothing on the other seats.
I fit the seat belt and start the engine, I can then reverse out of my parking and drive up to the gate before the light goes out.
This is the light in the main console not the one by the courtesy lamp.
Is this normal?
It may be that I just had not noticed this before.
Thankfully it is still in warranty if there is a fault.

The car is 2018 XTR

Geoff, the short answer to any query with a vehicle under warranty is - go back to the dealer.

If it isn't a fault you've lost nothing. If it is the beginning of a fault, then you've registered it early. If it becomes more serious over time, you have already built a strong case for the dealer to take action.

Thanks for the replies.
I have studied the light over the last few days and found:
The single light in the cluster mirrors the three lights by the courtesy lamp. That is to say, when I fit the seat belt and start the engine all lights come on. Then I drive say a hundred meters and they all go out together.
If at any other time I release the seat belt the light comes back on but goes out immediately I refit belt buckle.
I would have expected the driver's belt light to go out as soon as the belt was buckled and not have to wait for the car to self test all the other belt lights.

Definitely take a video. Then it will be time stamped and you'll have demonstrated the anomaly.

Hi, I've noticed mine takes a while to go out too. Not just the drivers one either. Seems pretty random. I just ignore it, pretty pointless light anyway. It goes out, so its easy to ignore.
