I have just bought a 53 plate focus zetec 1.8 tdci and am really happy with it so far- 1st ford I've owned coming from a VW.

I've noticed that the seatbelt warning light comes on and then goes off again immediatly after I switch the ignition on regardless of whether the seatbelts are buckled or not, it doesn't even come on if I drive off without buckling up.

I'm now wondering if the car even uses this feature? I heard about the disabling/enabling method involving buckling up 3 times and switching on the headlights etc. This didn't make any diference to mine, anyone have any ideas or insight?
