There must be some sort of pressure switch somewhere in later models perhaps. I know my passenger one the beeping/ light comes on if there's weight on the seat and belt undone, but if it's empty no beep. (Found out when I got it new, 2nd day driving, had my work bag on top, and didn't know what was up. Only worked it out when I pushed the bag off the passenger seat and into the footwell in frustration and the beeping magically stopped xD)

Isn't there some detection of "a person is sitting in this seat" though?

Not in our bugs.

Some "posher cars" have a seat occupancy detector and a buckle switch in the front passenger seat, but AFAIK none have an occupancy detector in the driver seat - the assumption is that if the car is moving then the driver must have his/her seatbelt buckled.

My other car (a Skoda) has buckle switches in all 3 rear seats too - but just shows a graphic on the instruments for a few seconds showing which rear belts are buckled, no warning sound.

Not true, when i'm driving with a heavy bag on the passengers side or my dog it will beep after a few seconds, if there is no weight on the seat, the beeping will never start.

If I lift the bag, the beeping will stop, when I replace the bag again, the beeping will start again.

There is definitely a pressure sensor in the seats.

Pretty sure I've done it too. Heavy bag for work on the passenger seat - beeping. Bag on the floor, no beeping.

Not in the passenger seat on my 2008 C1 - when I was working I ALWAYS put my (usually heavy with paperwork and lunch) briefcase on the front passenger seat and once I put my seatbelt on the light went out and the beeping stopped...

*** EDIT *** Just checked the wiring diagrams for the Mark 1 C1/107/Aygo and all that's shown is a switch in the drivers seatbelt buckle, nothing on the passenger side at all.

I have a 2013 model but there is definitely a pressure sensor.

Mines a '14 plate, so might be the facelift Mk1s have the pressure sensor on passenger side?

2013 facelift here - so could be. There are other minor wiring changes in the facelift too.

Quite likely - they also made curtain airbags standard instead of an option to improve the NCAP ratings as well. So it sounds like they did a revision to all the occupant safety systems.

Yup, as I mentioned there were other changes to the wiring loom too. For example, when I fitted fog lamps to my car, the wiring was already in place. I had to get the lamps, a relay and a new indicator stalk and just plug them in: no cutting, no wiring, no nothing. All the wires, sockets, everything were already in place. For early bugs, there is a kit which includes a switch to be fitted to the dash and (I believe) wires too because the original standard loom does not include wiring for the fog lamps.
