The truck was taken in to the dealer for a new long block. Head cracked @ 51k. Cast block, aluminum heads.

Once I got home I took off my belt and noticed the minder and Safety Belt Warning Light on the dash did not illuminate. The light illuminates when the ignition is ON like normal. Then turns off.

When it stays solid for 1-2 minutes from start up if I bluckle/unbuckle it works without audible, till it times out after 1-2 minutes.

I followed the manual to "Deactivating/Activating The Belt Minder Feature"

First try it told me that I just deactivated based on the flashes. Then I reset and do it again and it tells me I activated it.

Still not working.

Anything the dealer did when swapping the long block? Even though I doubt it.

But I know 100% the system was in working order prior to Ford taking possession of the truck.

Also the parking brake light does not illuminate when it is applied. It illuminates when starting the truck.

I don't want to have to drive all the way there 80 miles round trip, if there is something I could do to correct it would be appreciated greatly.

Thank You.

The belt minder is a weird one. I guess first I would see if the dinger works by turning on the lights and opening the driver's door.

For the parking brake, check the switch on the pedal. The connector can fall off or be knocked off without a lot of effort and the contacts on it can carbon up over time. Both easy fixes at home.
