I posted the below on the FORScan forum, thought I would ask here as well.

I removed the rear passenger captains chair seat in my 2018 Expedition with no issues. I loved the open access from my rear passenger door and it made it convenient for my two large dogs. With no family (other than my doggies) the missing seat was not an issue.

Well things changed when I removed that (rear passenger) seat in my new 2022 Expedition. Apparently the 2022 monitors rear seat belt status and I know the right rear seat contains the "Heated Second Row Seat Module".

When turning on the Expedition power I get a couple dash messages regarding "Rear belt monitor fault..." and Forscan lists DTC's from the SCMJ module Code: B1550 - Second Row Right Fold Output, and RCM module Code: Second Row Passenger Side Seatbelt Sensor.

Other than reinstalling the seat (I really like it removed) does anyone know how I could circumvent these messages & DTC's?

Is there a way to configure the system that the seat is not present so don't monitor it?

Thanks
Dennis

Darn, I was planning to remove the second row middle seat while the kids move out of their car seats. Hopefully their is a Forscan fix.

Second row middle seat removal will probably be fine. Dennis removed one of the captain’s chairs. Removing one of the outer seats from the bench configuration will probably set off similar alarms.

I guess I'll have to give it a try.

@CDNRabbit , I expect you'll have similar errors to what OP is seeing on the outboard seatbelt monitor fault. The 2022 monitors the 2nd row center seatbelt as well as the outboard ones.

CDNRabbit is correct, rear middle seat is monitored as well.
