continental: 2004 bentley..GT...visual and audible false alarm

Customer Question

I have a 2004 Bentley Continental GT. I cannot get rid of a visual and audible false alarm regarding the seatback not locked. I have had it in the shop at least 4 times and the repairmen cannot stop it. The main unit for all warnings was replaced-$4,000--not it...Is there a sending device in the seat itself similar to the tire pressure sensors(another nuisance) that can be replaced..The mechanics at the Ft. Lauderdale shop are at wits end and I so am I. Any suggestios?

Eurocar Inc. : hello there
Customer :

Hello

Eurocar Inc. : Just to make sure that I'm correct it s
Customer :

Continue

Eurocar Inc. : Is sensing that the seat back is forward like someone is going in the back seat
Eurocar Inc. : Is that correct?
Eurocar Inc. : Was there any fault codes stored in any modules if so what were they. All codes
Customer :

No--on the dash a red warning comes up and says seatback not locked--then a warning statrs beeping--loud and distracting--it happens intermittently and at random. I have been told by the entley mechanics that it cannot be disconnected because it is inter related with the airbags in some way. The seatbacks are alll locked --it is a false alarm that is very annoying. Fault codes store in any modules is meaningless to me

Eurocar Inc. : Well to me it is very critical any codes can be related like battery management codes , communication faults, etc
Eurocar Inc. : I wonde
Customer :

Have you ever worked on a Bentley?

Eurocar Inc. : I wonder is this intermittent or is this constant? There are channels that the scan tool can read and if its acting up all the time the tech should be able see this
Customer :

It is random

Eurocar Inc. : A wiring diagram is needed
Customer :

I agree

Eurocar Inc. : Did the tech get it to act up while inthe shop?
Eurocar Inc. : Do u have a vin # for me to see
Customer :

Yes--on all occasions--we assumed it was fixed because almost everything has been replaced--but alas it has surfaced again

Customer :

I am suspicious that it is the sending unit in the seat itself--similar to the tire pressure sending units that drive people nuts

Customer :

I can go to the car for the vin#--why do you need it?

Eurocar Inc. : Ok I will need a vin # of your vehicle and then I need sometime to investigate this for you if that is ok
Customer :

I will go get it

Eurocar Inc. : That is how I can get your wiring diagram car specific !!!
Eurocar Inc. : Just post it and I will investigate and will get somewhat a direction for you to tackle
Customer :
