A Peugeot 308 SW question from

My Peugeot 308 SW`s seatbelt warning keeps going off even noone is sitting in the seats. only happens with the seats in the back of the car. If I every seat occupied and fastened in it also does it

Any ideas why?


Did you any resolution to this problem? exactly the same problem and garage can’t come up a diagnosis or solution. It’s us crazy. Lesley G from

I also have this on my 308SW. First happened 3 months ago – hardly use the rear seats – and no one in the rear at the time. First one went off – to stop I seat belt and it was fine after a couple of days the sensor started giving ended up fastening all the seat

Then after week or so started to go off again even the belts fastened. After the seats and putting them in to see if this cleared the problem the car in for a diagnostics check but before in I had to unfasten all the belts and amazingly all was so cancelled the diagnostics. OK for over a then started up again. I have two belts fastened and one not and again got the car booked in. Extemely fault.

Did you get a solution. What’s the and how do I fix it? (1.7cdti) – Graham from Renfrewshire

Rear belt problem drove me mad as seemed to be no rhyme nor reason for the to keep going off. a month of it with no ideas various garages I took out the row of seats pulled up the carpet and the sensors from the wiring Trouble is I can hear the wife again now. Jason Lincolnshire

Mine started doing today (20/2/13). If you take the out, detach the plastic from in front of, and behind the and lift out the carpet panel, you see a black plastic strip a connector at the near side Disconnect the plug to disable the

It’s less frustrating to the system and check any passenger’s done up their seat then to try and sort out a random that I doubt will up in a diagnostic check and will be expensive to repair. I suspect the is where the plug connects to the PCM in the plastic ’strip’ rather the wiring. Laurence from

My Peugeot garage had the car when the was being issued, but said couldn’t find the fault! All seats started alarming (05/03/13) even though the belts were connected. can’t book my car in till week – and when I them to disable the alarm in the they said they

Something to do with Europe Anyway, thanks to this post I have now successfully the alarm. Note – you have to take off the front strip – and to do so you just a small screwdriver to release the over the metal bar.

If find the real reason for the I will post here THANK YOU! Tony Sussex

I have had the intermittent belt fault with 2 of the rear seats in my 308 SW. After two to the Peugeot garage (first said they couldn’t anything wrong) they now say it a seat belt pickup, a bar with sensors and transmitters, The quoted price £128.

Asked if they could and they said no as may cause faults. After reading I will be disconnecting it myself. is no guarantee that after replaced the same fault develop! Rather not waste my – CLC from England

I I had read this forum I booked my car in – it is now in the garage for the 4th I have paid to have one belt stalk replaced labour!). Then it was reccomended I replaced the ariel base (after the garage spoke Peugeot in France).

I also did I’m over £300 out of and it hasn’t resolved the problem. The belts alarmed the day after I got the base unit fited and now the don’t alarm when my don’t put their seat on. So frustrating. – Diane from Mid-Lothian (Edinburghshire)

My wife has this problem her Peugeot 308 SW, the rear seat alarms keep going I have read the above but cannot find the correct trim to remove? Could one please a little clearer and how to locate and remove this to get at the connector? Mark Smith Berkshire

Thank you so much for answers, this problem has driving me mad. On my 308 under the rear seat, lift the remove plastic cover and the connection apart. No alarms, but at last. Well done – Norm from

Had the same problem. Warning stayed on along with the loud alarm beeping if nobody was sat in the seat. Tried the seats out as some have and it made no difference. Took the car to my garage. Using WD 40 with the arm attached to the canister, the mechanic a liberal amount into the seat belt connector.

He then clicked the seat in out a number of times and then the light went off. So far no either. He then did the same for seat belt just to be He thinks the fault is caused by seat belt connector

I’m assuming it’s my dropping god knows what into the seat belt If any of you have kids/messy people, it be worth a go. Hope this – Chris from
