Occupent Restraint Module

So, maybe someone can help me out. The seatbelt noise on my 2011 Wrangler Unlimited wouldn't go off when the seat belt was in use ( it did eventually go off after I drive for a long while). I took it to my Jeep dealer and they said it was the occupent restraint sensor and it needed to be replaced. $600 later, I picked up the car and the sound has stopped, but in actuality it doesn't go off at all, whether the seatbelt is in use or not. And the seatbelt light on the dash is on even if the seatbelt is in use. I feel that they just disengaged the sound and didn't actually replace the part and I am pretty ticked. Can anyone comment on this before I go to jeep and the atty general to file a fraud claim. Is there any other explanation as to why the sound isn't present but the light, etc is still on?

my guess would be its not registering the seat belt click so i would look at a broke wire under the seat most likely. but if they warranty their work take it back and make em fix it

Seems like the dealer didn't repair the problem. Did you contact or go back to the dealer? It's going to be obvious to them that the light is still on. You have to at least give the dealer a chance to fix it. There are 3 sensors that affect the deployment of the air bags which work in conjunction with the seat belts, which are attached to the structure of the seat itself. It could be as simple as a loose wire or the computer isn't picking up the signal from the module. They should be able to further diagnose and repair the problem. The seat has an Occupant Detection Sensor as part of the "staged" air bag system, along with a sensor for the seat track position and a sensor to detect whether the seat belt is buckled/tensioner. The 08-15 JK's have these three sensors.

They charged you $600 to turn of the seatbelt chime! That's all that it sounds like they did. Its a 15second deal... Turn the key into the on position and unbuckle/ buckle the belt 3 times. What a rip off! I would be back at the dealer raising Cain!
