    I thought the same, but the chime annoyed me enough to try it. It works

    I know this is a few months late, but I just found this article. Not sure if it applies to 2015 STI or not. I was on the way to work this morning and had a bag of popcorn balls in the seat and the sensor went off. The bag weighed all of 2 pounds at the most. My first thought was there was something wrong with the sensor. Turns out (if this article is correct), Subaru uses Electrostatic Capacitance Sensor ODS, not weight. Apparently, my balls were electric.

    That actually explains a lot.

    The same sensor is in my '14 forester as in the '15 WRX/STIs. It's not the weight triggering it, it's the frequency of your cellphone/ipad. I have to make a conscious effort not to put my phone of my passenger and keep it in the cupholder. I contacted SOA about it and they said they are aware of it and there really isn't a fix.
