Random Seatbelt Alarm While Driving

My car was intermittently not detecting that the seatbelt is fastened, randomly while driving. Possible solutions:

  • cleaning the seatbelt tongue with isopropyl alcohol -- the quickest and I was surprised it actually worked, because the tongue did not look dirty
  • getting a seatbelt extender
  • replacing the seatbelt tongue -- seems like a lot of work
  • disabling the seatbelt check, on Alfa Romeo it can be done only through the OBD connector, but you need a special software (, 50EUR, windows, android -- I haven't tried it)
