    First car I've been in where the the rear seatbelt warning flashes and stays for a while over the nav screen on the dash. Any way to disable it

    I don't think it is possible. I've been trying to figure that out myself.

    Does the rear seats in the Model S have seat belt warnings too? I know it was a feature in the Model X but I didn't know it made its way into the Model S as well.

    I love it, that way I don't need to look back to make sure everyone has their belts fastened. But it is a bit annoying if a passenger is leaning onto an empty seat which triggers the weight sensor and then gives me a warning popup.

    I leave the middle seat belt buckled in. That way if someone sitting in an outboard seat leans on the middle the warning doesn't activate.

    Is this what we're trying to fix? People leaning on seats or cargo/pets on the seats? I couldn't tell what the issue was... :D

    That's brilliant! It drives me nuts, as almost 100% of the time the rear right passenger buckles in the wrong slot. I wish they would just make the buckles for right/middle unique.

    It can be an annoyance for those with kids in booster seats. I have my daughter's booster seat on the passenger side, but she has to buckle in the receiver for the middle seat, because the booster is wide and the receivers are recessed.

    I leave the middle one bucked in all the time as well. I bought a couple of seat belt extenders (because it is next to impossible for kids to do it with the flush design) and those suppress the alerts as well.

    Our Model S from 12/2016 only has it for front seats. The Model S from 3/2017 has it for front and rear seats.
