No, I did not turn the ignition while putting in the new seatbelt. I actually had the batter disconnected the whole time. Upon putting the seatbelt back in and connecting the battery and starting the car, the SRS light still illuminated for about 90 seconds, as usual.
I took it to the dealer, they ran the test, cleared the code, checked it, and it didn't come back. Still hasn't come back. Everything's fine now. But $90 later, actually $190 for having them fix change all the lights in the cluster. $4 per light? And there are 24 back there? Wow, what a rip. OH well, they still gave me a deal because of the labor taking the cluster out.
But they also told me that I would need a new cluster @ $900 since my gauges would stick sometime... I passed on that one!
