Hi all newbie here , had my qashqai 2011 for 3 days , I’ve noticed when I switch engine on the rear passenger seat belt light comes on , n/s with a orange triangle ,
They both go out after about 20 seconds , garage says this is normal , I don’t think so , any advise would be great

It apparently works like this: (from Nissan Diagnostics)

REAR SEAT BELT WARNING LAMP OPERATION

>>Rear seat belt warning lamps are located on center consol indicator unit.
>>Warning lamp lights up if seat belt buckle switch is in OFF position (unbuckled)
>>Warning lamp turns off if seat belt buckle switch is in ON position (buckled).
>>Regardless of rear seat belt status, warning lamp turns off approximately 35 seconds (the specified time)
after the engine has started.

My 2014 J11 operates exactly the same way, the little triangle is the diagnostics doing its thing and goes out, if it doesn't you have a problem which will then be displayed.
