    I was wondering if anyone could give me some more details on this OBD ii code. Is itbessentiallybwhats telling me whether my seatbelt is on? Or more so whether that circuit for the light. Indicator is working?

    What kind of car? Those types of codes may have meaning specific to the vehicle.

    Thanks for the response!
    It would be for Model F-250/150
    My understanding is there's certain ranges for specific manufacutures then there are generic 'universal' codes.

    "specific manufactures then there are generic 'universal' codes." - yes there are,

    is this a f150 or a f250 ?

    There is a suffix to further ID issue -B0050:11, B0050:12, B0050:13, B0050:1D.
    But with the limited info-
    >>Possible Sources
    Wiring, terminals or connectors
    Driver safety belt buckle switch
    RCM


    >>Visual Inspection and Diagnostic Pre-checks
    Inspect for a damaged driver safety belt buckle.
    Inspect for damaged wiring harness(es).
    Inspect for loose or damaged connectors.

    Sorry, for a F-250 2015. Thanks again everyone!

    Would this check if the buckle is activated or not. And would the diagnostics clear the DTC if it was buckled or unbuckled? I'm thinking the mechanism for the buckle may not be properly clicking into place, or something within the buckle is not completing the circuit.

    It suggests a problem with switch or wiring.

    A scanner capable of accessing SRS* could check seat belt and seat presence for operation.

    *might be something like RCM in ford talk

    Thanks Kev2, I found that an OBD ii scanner with chips such as STN11xx will be able to access prorietary codes for Ford.
