I have had my 2005 Outback 2.5i for less than 24 hours and now the seatbelt warning chime stays on. The "passenger" seatbelt light doesn't go on, but it won't go off until I reach over and snap the seatbelt buckle into place. There is nothing on the seat or in the pouch behind the seat.
What's up???

This site seems to indicate that you are due for a recalibration.
Not sure of method (See SOA under warranty) as a reset for the standard operation but I was able to reprogram the system to only chime 5 or 6 times when you first get in and start the car and then stop with the nagging chimes! Instructions below.

take it back to the dealer.. they fix it at their own cost. tell them you want it brought into their shop right then, and fixed in front of you.

Thats BS that a brand new car does something like that within 24 hours
