Any time I put something - as light as 10 pounds in my passenger seat, my seat belt alarm goes off in my 2007 Pontiac Vibe. To avoid the VERY annoying beeping, I usually end up buckling up my backpack. It's a pain.
Is there anything I can do to make this thing not so sensitive? I don't mind the alarm going off if there's an actual person sitting there, but not just when I put something light next to me. I suppose even disabling it would be okay if that was the only solution - would it be safe just to snip the wire? Or would that cause the alarm to always go off?
