    I've just got my Mrs a lovely 2007 CR-V. The only thing i can find wrong with it (so far) is that the seatbelt warning light doesn't go out when the drivers belt is clipped in.
    Is there a way of resetting this? Or does the sensor need replacing?

    Congrats !

    Check under the seat for any disconnected plugs.

    Not yet. The warning light is actually the airbag warning light. All the wiring under the seat looks fine. I'm hoping that it's just the switch inside the belt clip that needs a little switch cleaner. If not, then i dunno??

    It's this bit. Even though this is from a 2nd Generation CR-V it looks pretty much the same. And those two torx screws, they are the ones i get at and get into the unit to clean the switch which engages when you put the seatbelt in it. (And hopefully turns the warning light off)

    If not, i have a few other options but it seems, after doing a bit of research, this is quite a common problem

    If you get a TP10 and it's a T10 that would still work but if you got a T10 and the bolt was actually TP10 that wouldn't work would it ?

    So play it safe and get a TP10 ?

    Ok, i've taken both seatbelt units apart and cleaned them up, there was quite a lot of muck in there. But this hasn't fixed the warning light. It is definitely the SRS light that is coming on. One thing i've noticed is that the seat belt indicator light doesn't come on at all. Could this be the source of the problem??

    Also, i tried to check the fuse but it's in a right proper awkward spot. As i'm trying to do this operation in the dark when my mrs get's home from work i've decided to leave it until the weekend. I'd love to get it fixed though as it's bugging me, a lot more than it's bugging her i have to say

    Please take extra care when dealing with the SRS system.

    Without reading the code from the SRS system you're making total guesses at what the root cause is.

    You need to get the SRS code read somehow.

    For the sake of safety please take your car to a dealer or specialist that has the correct equipment to deal with SRS Sytems, not only for your safety in the event if your unfortunate should you have a traffic collision but also from a safety point on working with them. Trust me as a firefighter I know what I am talking about, these sytems have the potential to kill, we give them a very healthy dose of respect when dealing with them at any Road Traffic Collision. Leave it to a trained proffesional who knows what they are doing and has the correct safety equipment to deal with any of these systems. I had a collegue who was almost paralysed from the neck down by an accidental operation of a passenger air bag!

    Ok, fair enough. Not a simple fix then. I'll stop tinkering
