Passenger seat belt indicator light staying on 2013 SV

Mon Jun 19, 2017 7:34 am

I have until tonight to decide if I want to keep this Leaf (see: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=24103)

I had my first passenger yesterday. This morning I noticed that the seat belt indicator light (right side of driver display) was remaining on along with a red triangle (top left of driver display). There was nothing on the passenger seat this morning. When I buckled the passenger seat belt, the lights went off.

Does anyone know if this is a problem with the Leaf?

Thanks!

Sounds like the weight sensor in the seat might be bad.

There is actually a recall related to this issue. https://www.nissanusa.com/recalls-vin/#/#/Results/1N4AZ0CP4DC407834

Nissan doesn't have the parts yet, though, so that's probably why Carvana is selling it even with a recall.

(The one I just got from Carvana has the same recall.)

I just got mine finally fixed while the car was in for service. The parts are available.
