Customer Question
I was tinkering around...

I was tinkering around with an app i'm building I had a quick question about the DTC codes and was wondering if you are familiar with OBD sensor diagnostics

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

No, I was trying to read my seatbelt light

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?

Through an OBD ii scanner

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Cadillac?

2013 XTS

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XTS yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm not fixing anything

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nope that's good

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Hey Roy,I'm curious about accessing OBD ii data from your SRS or DSM network.On your vehicles can you detect the status of a seat belt (buckled or unbuckled) by reading the generic B0052 code? What about the pretensioner? I feel that's more so for seeing if it's been activated 3 or more times or has failed (due to an accident).
Cadillac Mechanic: roybelding, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

what kind of scan tool are you using??? that would determine what info you can see.
