Press O/D button or accelerator break fluid light and seat belt light blink

I have searched and haven't been able to find anything maybe I am not wording it right.

I have been having this problem nit sure what may be causing it.

I drive a 2003 V6 convertible.

Press O/D button or accelerator break fluid light and seat belt light blink. seems almost like a code blinks like three times then goes solid for a second then goes off till I do one of those again. It doesn't do it every time I accelerate but most times it does.

Thanks in advance!

How is your brake fluid level? My srt4 did that because it was low, I felt kinda dumb because it took a few days for me to figure that out

Re: Press O/D button or accelerator break fluid light and seat belt light blink

OK I checked the brake fluid which was full but seems the resavoir was tipped a bit so I straightened it out and put a dab more brake fluid and the blinking stopped.(well so far I didn't drive it too much much) But still when I hit the O/D the brake light and seat belt light came on for like 3 seconds then go right back off. The O/D light stays on when I hit it again the O/D light goes of but the seat belt and brake light come back on for 3 seconds then turn off

Well when I push it I feel it kick on but i turn it right back off. I don't want to mess something up. Not sure if it actually is staying on or working properly though.

when you hit the brakes or the car slows down (front end dives) if the fluid is close to being low the light can come on. Check your brake fluid level.

U get better milage with it on. U know that right? Ur car won't go into 4th with it off which means higher rpms = lower milage

Re: Press O/D button or accelerator break fluid light and seat belt light blink

OK here is all the information I have. It's not low on brake fluid. I just had to change my thermostat becasue it was bad casuing a check engine light which said it was overheating. I also had to change the alternator.

So last night I got it out on the highway for a good drive(went to play hockey) this is what it did on the way home.... When I would hit 65mph or 2000 rpms(w o/d on) the seat belt light and brake light would flash on the dashboard sometimes a couple times sometimes stay on for a couple seconds. When I turned o/d of the lights stopped... I tried speeding up to 65 a few times(with o/d on) and after about 20 miles into the drive it stopped flashing. I was only on the highway for a few more miles, so I don't know if it has stopped for good.

I was wondering is there maybe something that needs to reset from the check engine light maybe a warning flash so I don't drive it to hard after the over heating warning??? I just don't get it, I hope somebody knows something!!

I reset the check engine by disconecting the battery while I changed the alternator. Would the other lights blinking be something I need cleared?

Ok I still need help here! So when I go over 60 the brake light and seat belt light on the dash come on the blink sometimes really fast sometimes slow and the doors lock and unlock repeatedly too at the same time. Could this have anything to do with the alarm I had installed last year?

The alarm install should have nothing to do with it unless they did'nt install it properly. it night be a good idea to have the install checked to be sure it is done properly.
