The restraint diagnostic sensing module is supposed to tell the instrument cluster to do the self-test of the indicator. You are going to need to have the module scanned for fault codes to see if it's the module or the cluster.

How do I carry out the scanIf I don’t buckle the seatbelt, it doesn’t chime as well
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Ok, then it's definitely the restraint diagnostic sensing module. You need a scan tool that has the capability of reading SRS fault codes.

Did you say, the seat belt chime doesn't work?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Chime does not work
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Sounds like a cluster issue to me now. Enter into the IPC with your scan tool and command the seat belt indicators on and off.

What is IPC
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Instrument cluster

What type of scan tool do you have?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Ok, you can't with that one. You need a bi-directional scan tool capable of taking control of the inputs and outputs of sensors, switches, and logic.

once the test is done, what should I look out for?
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Does the chime work if the parking brake is left on when the transmission is shifted to drive, and if the keys are left in the ignition and the driver's door is opened?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Ok, that puts a new twist into things. Scan the body control module for fault codes. The BCM is responsible for sending for those discretes to the radio. The radio is the actual chime producer.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
What tool do I use to scan the BCM
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

You already did, I see a BCM fault in that video that you sent. U0140-71 code is the key here.

I noticed speaker does not sound properly tooWhat scan tool do I need for the test
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

You need a Tech2 scan tool. At this point, I have to recommend replacing the BCM.

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Okay,how is it programmed after replacement
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

With a TECH2 scan tool that will have the appropriate software. See attachment

Would a bcm from salvaged vehicle work for my car?
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Only if the software from yours is uploaded into a scan tool and downloaded into the junkyard one.

the chime works when key is put in ignition and the door is opened. Parking brake light comes on when vehicle is started but does not come on when I engage it while car is in driving mode.
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

I still believe this is a BCM issue. Did you check all of those fuses?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I checkedThey looked okay
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Ok, well I have nothing else to add. You are going to need to have a scan tool that can command the seat belt light on and off and the seat belt chime on and off to see if the BCM is seeing the discretes or not.
