    IIRC correctly, seperate symbol (not on DIS) and a warning 'bing'.

    You should have seat belt warning my 2005 S-Line does. You get a seat belt light on the dash and if you start to drive forwards it keeps pinging.

    There are options in the cluster coding for how it behaves.

    I'm sure coding with vag would adjust how works, but was curious how worked in dash, etka shows seat sensor aswell so wondered if this is part of to, strange why they didnt do through DIS though, those little signs in the clocks are crappy

    It is in VAGCOM on the Instruments page.

    There'll be a sensor in each seat to control it.

    You can have the warning light on permanently with no beep
    You can have the warning light on permanently with a beep for 91 seconds
    You can have the warning light on permanently with a permenent beep.
    You can have them all turned off.

    So does the warning go of after you have put the drivers seat belt on or passengers aswell?

    Reason being I'm gonna order replacement clips for my new seats & wanted to know if drivers is only one needed with warning sensor.

    goes off after you plug in the driver's seatbelt, unless you have someone in the passenger seat - in which case it will continue to ping until either they have plugged theirs in or the timeout period expires.

    There should be two sensors - one in the seat to detect if somebody is sitting in it and then some sort of sensor in the belt holder thing to detect when the belt is plugged in.

    That annoying warning was the first thing I turned off after investing in my VAG-COM cable!

    That'll be the seat sensor then, ok now I understand it, detects pressure on the seat which then makes the sensor in the clip live, cheers Marc, now I have to figure the wiring out aswell as rest of things, lol.

    I've got a new clip for the passenger side with sensor(fleabay) but as the drivers side is only one with the seat sensor(I think without pulling seats apart) I will swap over to that side.

    the car also needs to be above 12km\h before it activates the seat sensor so I'm sure you'll have fun working out the signalling on that!

    Its probably a CAN signal to something so some head scratching required, prob DIS/speedo sends signal which then activates a relay which inturn activates the system, just thinking aloud, I'll get the clips & do another day.
