seat swap confusion

So I swapped my seats for a set of black ss/sc seats. Swapped the passenger pressure pad but didn't swap the actual seat belt buckle ((holder clip thingy)thing held on to the seat by the giant torx). So everything is connected except for that plug. The airbag sensor works and just took my gf for a short (and slow) ride around the block to see if it would kick the seat belt chime and it didn't. Just wondering if there is a certain speed that it kicks the chime on or if I should be fine if it hasn't show up yet.

does your drivers door speaker work? im fairly certain the chime would play through that speaker just like all the other chimes and what not.. look and see if the light is on or something..

It's stupid easy to swap, go on a regular drive and see then if it's an issue just swap.

My driver speaker works intermittently. And I'll have to have someone grab it before I get rid of the seats then. I have no light on the dash though

The light for the passenger seat is located above the climate controls and below the head unit. If the LED for airbag off is lit up, and someone is sitting in the seat while the car is running, then you know it isnt connect.

I got that light working and wired that all up, just the actual seat belt chime now. Which probably won't matter anyway since my front speakers don't work.
I just don't understand why GM had the need to change the entire setup of the passenger seat pressure pad system nearly every year.

Im pretty sure the sound comes from the gauge cluster. There is a speaker build into the back of the gauge cluster in the 2005-2006 cobalts. Im not sure if the later models had that built in or not.

I do know turn signal noises come through the speaker, and i figured chimes did as well. Not having turn signal noise is great though. So maybe I will just unhook my speaker all together since I don't listen to music much anyway.
