02 Punto seatbelt restraint light flashing.

Ive fixed up my 02 punto sporting from a light frontal, and now the Restraint light is flashing? Can anyone tell me what it means? I think it is the tensioners? all the airbags are OK.
Any advise is appreciated.
Thanks Scrimy.

Re: 02 Punto seatbelt restraint light flashing.

is it flashing about 3 or 4 times then go off. if so it is normal, telling you the pass air bag is turned on and will go off in an accident,and unsafe to have child seat in the front...................
