I just got it back from the dealer for a free repair and the passenger air bad stuff is all okay!

Apparently the drivers seat belt latch switch (or wires) are causing light and chime problems.

If it's at all like my Chevy pickup, you can just unplug that under the seat and it will go away.

Won't that just keep them on continuously?

I don't know about the Solstice. On a different GM. my Chevy, that is a closed circuit when the seat belt is unbuckled so the light and chime activate. As soon as you plug in the buckle, the circuit opens and goes quiet/dark. Disconnecting the switch at the plug under the seat achieves the same thing permanently. You lose the reminder to put on your seat belt but I wear mine all the time anyway.

I left a message at the German place for the air lift a few days ago. He has never contacted me back.

The heater mix control took several re calibrations. I even did one with the control knobs in the reverse positions, then back with another normal one. It did not work, but the next day it was working wonderfully. I think elves come and work on it at night.

One of the seat belt lights was the drivers belt. I pulled the seat out. it took two trips to town. one fore a 15mm socket and a second for a T50. I remembered someone posting that they used a 6" extension for the seat nuts. I used ever extension I had, and my back thanked me.

The wires from the latch were a bit of a problem to fish out of the seat. I found where they had been pinched and shorted to the frame. I didn't think fixing the little bare spots on the wires would fix it, so I taped it up and checked the switch in the latch and reconnected it. I left the wire out of the seat and slapped the seat back in. It fixed it. I need to go back and do a better job of insulating the wires.

I want to try a fluid change for the manual transmission. I'm looking at Synchroshift (part#792) with 3oz. of BG MGC additive(part#325) as per PASSIONRE posted. https://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/...uid-oil-64180/ post #12.

I doubt that this will fix it but I'll try it.

Yes! That's the way my 2007 is. Luckily I could barely here the chimes over the loud pipes.
