I recently spilled something on my passenger seat and so scrubbed the base of the seat with soapy water. Ever since the front passenger seatbelt alarm and light goes off continuously with NOTHING on the seat.

The only temporary solution I’ve had so far is to keep the seatbelt always closed when driving however I need a better long term solution.

Have I damaged the electrics/pressure system with scrubbing it?

Hi l know that if you put a heavy bag on the seat the light flashes. Until the belt is connected, didn't know the reason for must say. Sorry but I am not near my Haynes today but if you can get your hair dryer near the seat, you could try driving it out and see if that helps. Any work done with Electrics must be done with the battery disconnected.
Under the seats are switch's that might also have got wet if water seeped though.
Later more guys will have answers for you for sure.
Good Luck

There is a seat occupancy sensor built-in to the front passenger seat, by scrubbing the seat with soapy water you have got water/damp into the sensor - so it thinks there is someone sitting in the seat.

I would try drying the seat out using a hair dryer, but if that doesn't work then my best guess is that the seat occupancy sensor is knackered and will need to be replaced.

Thanks man. I am only guessing, but one of thought things that you plug in the seat belt holder might do the trick for the original poster. If changing the sensor turns out to a big and expensive job?

Just checking mainly out of curiosity the seatbelt extenders, on Ebay. Surprised to find that local shops carry German type fitting for the slot. On Ebay it states Germany.
Be careful if ordering over the web or Ali etc.

That would be a workaround not a solution - but if that's what OP wants then that's OK.

Thanks for the advice. Any ideas on how much a new sensor would cost ?

I can tell you the part number, which is 8925 41 - but can't find a price online.
