To check and see if the light is for real (since you changed the seatbelt), take off the negative battery cable for a few minutes. This will wipe out any codes plus the seat belt light that are being set by the computer. After you put the cable back on and take the PT for a ride, then see if the light comes back on.

Questions: how did you know which seat belt to replace (Passenger/driver) ? Was the tensioner also replaced with the new belt?

you will need to have someone with a airbag scan tool erase the set code in the airbag computer. what caused the seat belt pre-tensioner to go bad? was it popped or did it simply trip a fault becasue of incorrect resistance? the airbag computer isnt like the engines ECM, the codes cant simply be erased by removing the battery terminal.

Thanks Cartman, didn't realize a scan tool would be needed to erase the code.
