So on a few occasions I will have one of my kids get out of the car and I get a seat belt warning for the seat where they were at. They had the belt on but upon leaving I’m getting the red warning light on my small monitor saying someone is not buckled in. Any clue what’s up with this?

are you questioning why after they get out of the car it still shows red "!"? My assumption is when the alert is triggered the car was still moving and the seatbelt was removed which popped up the alert which is now stuck until you click ok. Then the door is opened and kid gets out which unfortunately doesn't update the warning pop up. Nothing appears to other than clicking OK or turning off the car and starting it again.

Where do you click ok? The warning comes up on the smaller screen in front of the steering wheel.

In case it's not clear, you push "in" on the volume up/down nubbin to press OK on an alert on the gauge cluster
