I think I'm going mad.

I have a 2010 CMAX 1.6.TDCi. Just recently noticed that the passenger seat belt warning alarm wasn't working. Booked into my local ford garage to be fixed under warranty.

Just got the car back. Garage stated that the passenger seat beltwarning has NEVER been installed.

Phoned my passenger who "confirms" the alarm has gone whilst he was in the car when not wearing his seat belt.

Have I imagined the alarm being there or have the garage got it wrong ?

aware of passenger door warning but never heard about passenger seat belt. I know my one does not have it or even anybody else I know!

My wife and I have just been out and checked ours – definitely no seat belt alarm.

We have now done a more thorough check. There is no passenger seatbelt warning at all. However, if the driver's seatbelt is undone a warning sounds, and a seatbelt sign flashes in the rev counter gauge, as soon as the car gets to 20mph. Could it be that when you thought the warning was sounding for the passenger it was because the driver had not done up their belt? Hope this clears it up for you.
