Customer Question
Daqsh board RED sensor light...
Daqsh board RED sensor light came on the other day for no reason and remains lit. One other time I had the same problem but by adjusting the wires under the seat it went away. I suspect the same issue as it occurred I believe when seat was slammed back. HELP

Yes the system ready alert. These cars have wire under the seat propensities and the first time I saw this light moving it fixed it. This time no dice. I am almost certain this is still a possible.
Auto Mechanic: Dino, Technician replied 8 years ago
yes this sounds like a harness problem maybe a broken wire i have seen this on several cars before as the routing of the seat harness is to short and the wires will brake or stretch and cause a open in the system and set the light

What does it go to in the seat? This is the driver seat. And how do I close the loop? Can I ground it off.
Auto Mechanic: Dino, Technician replied 8 years ago

the problem will need to be corrected this is a safety item and should not be tampered with.

does this car still have a warranty ?

 

the best advise I will offer you is to have the dealer make the necessary repairs or you buy the harness and replace it your self.
