Fasten seat belt alarm

My passenger seat is so sensitive that when place my iPhone on it the"fasten seat belt" alarm goes off. Does this happen to anyone else?

happened to me a few times even when there was nothing on the front seat. It came on when i was driving on a highway all of a sudden once. Had to buckle in the passenger seat belt to make the gong go away as i could not stop and restart the car.

I've had a textbook set off the passenger seatbelt gong. Weighs about 5 pounds. A book is a little over the top for sensitivity but a cellphone is way over.

I think its a malfunction, dont believe it has anything to do with weight. At times i put my bag with laptop and documents on the front seat and it does not make the car think seat is occupied. Few times it happened to me, the seat was empty!

Looks like another software update coming. Who wants to be the guinea pig and have the SA replicate the alarm? ha
