Sensitive Passenger's Seat Seatbelt Sensor

I find the passenger's seat seatbelt sensor to be very sensitive. The "your not wearing your seatbelt" chime goes off if I sometimes have my phone or iPad on the seat. Not much weight at all. Are they all like this?

Yes, but you can get it calibrated for a bit of weight. There is a bulletin and I've read it. Do you think I can find it !!!!! Apparently some people have had their seat calibrated for their laptops and ipads.

That's really interesting. The information I was reading said that once the PPS is out of calibration, it has to be replaced. I hope you find it!

the only time its ever happened on me is when someone was sitting in the seat, ive had a good 20-30 pounds of stuff sitting on that seat quite often too without it going off....
