I wish I knew the answer - I've learned to live with it. It seems to have a "hair trigger."

My book bag on the way home from work is always enough to trigger it, and sometimes it's triggered by nothing at all.

The reason it doesn't bother me too much is because it cuts off after about two minutes of driving. Perhaps it was designed that way for 1st gen LaCrosses? I don't know about later models.

Does it happen if belt is fastened together with no one in seat? Those seem to be pressure or weight activated. Maybe too sit in seat and bounce up and down about 10 times? May work better, stay on continous lol (kidding).

Rethinking, there must be some type of conductivity that warns if belt is unlatched. Can the belts themselves have a capacitive touch feature like the gloves with the finger pads to enable use of cell phone? No wires I can see there for sure.

How does the seat belt know if it's connected or not?

Rich,

There is small contact point in the seatbelt buckle. If you carefully follow the seatbelt buckle, there are wires connecting into it.
