    Has anyone else seen the back seat seatbelt lights coming on at random times? I'll start the Prius, the lights go through their "diagnostic" stage, and then one or both of the back seat seatbelt lights stays on until I shut the car down at my destination. Lately it's been both.

    I'm starting to wonder if it's a bad sensor, since there's no one sitting back there and nothing on the seats (I thought at first it was registering my gym bag or something as a person, but I've been carefully not using the seats for bags).

    Thoughts? I'm not due for service for a while so if it's minor I'll just wait.

    Not that I've noticed. If I open the rear doors, the lights will come on but will turn off shortly after.
