Default Seatbelt Alarm Disable?

Anyone know how to turn off the seatbelt alarm? Normally you can do a search online and find the series of ignition and button presses to get rid of it but I cannot figure it out?

why? if your seatbelt is unbuckled at the time of impact your insurance company may sue you if you get hurt. i also read somewhere that certain airbags will not deploy if belt is unbuckled. i was like you for years with not wearing the belt. the mfr's have now beatin me down to wear i do it out of habit and feel naked without it. once you do it for a week or so (to shut the beeping off) it won't bother you. PLUS it keeps you safe lol

Default Try this

Disable BeltAlert (Seat Belt Chimes):
NOTE: The following steps must occur within the first
60 seconds of the ignition switch being turned to the ON
or START position. DaimlerChrysler does not recommend
deactivating Beltalert.
1. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and
buckle the driverís seat belt.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and wait
for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds of turning the ignition switch to the
ON position, unbuckle and then re-buckle the driverís
seat belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending
with the seat belt buckled.
NOTE: Watch for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn on
while unbuckling and off while re-buckling the seat belt.
It may be necessary to retract the seat belt partially each
time when unbuckling.
4. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position. A
single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully
completed the programming.

I wear my seatbelt almost always the chiming gets on my nerves when my passengers dont wear it and it chimes forever. Also at work when we move our cars from one lot to another it bugs me but other than that I always wear my belt. Honestly I do not need the chime to remind me to wear it...

I turned off my chime in my Megacab. We always took my truck to the ranch, and we don't use seatbelts on the ranch. It's really unnecessary and a hindrance. The procedure in Post #3 is how you do it on the truck....I don't know how to do it with the push-button start....

How about the door chime, is there a way to sit and listen to the radio (car not running) with the drivers door open without the chime?

Without pressing the brake pad, pressing the Engine Start/Stop button once turns the switch to Accessory position, twice to On position, and a third time to Off/Lock again.

Trace,

I could find no instructions on disabling the door chime when key is on and the drivers door is open. Sorry.

Chris,
Okay, thanks. Is there a work around by chance, for example in the old days i would stick my foot up in the door jam and hold the switch in, I dont see a switch in this one though.

Unfortunately not in this case as I believe it works off of the door latch system, the same one that would illuminate a door ajar light.

Obvious solution that we used when the kids were young; the vehicle doesn't move until all seatbelts are buckled, and if a seatbelt is taken off, the car stops until it goes back on. My daughter and her friend are alive only because of their seatbelts.

We didn't even think about seat belts when I was a kid growing up, and there were no chimes (until we got a 72 Ford). My siblings and I are alive because we were lucky!

I also have a farm,and a travel trailer. I always wear my seatbelt when on the road.... but on the farm and when camping I don't wear it... this worked on my 04,07,and now on my 2014 hope this helps.....

It worked on my 12', thanks. And BTW, black electrical tape matches the dash warning light area perfectly. I put a small square of it over the red seat belt light, you cant even tell it is there!

Does anyone know how to shut off the beep when you leave the D running with the key fob in your possession? My Buick never beeped, but this truck is annoying to leave passengers and run into a store or the house.

Obviously that's not a great idea either. Not to preach, but if an adult is in the car with you then they should run out if you must leave the car running. If only kids are in the car then you ought to turn it off before getting out, and leave the ACC on if they need to watch/hear something. A few extra cranks on the starter won't hurt anything.

And here's another scenario. Let's say you go in somewhere with the car running and you empty a pocket for some reason and wind up leaving your keys. Do you really want to get in your car and drive off only to not be able to start it again after you get 100 (or whatever) miles away???

Well my wife and co-workers are hardly children but i understand what you were trying to convey. I could just take the key out of my pocket and leave it with the vehicle but it still beeps. I am hoping someone knows a way to shut this off.

And you're not sending your wife into the store because....? ;-)

Anyway, if you leave the key in the car and it still beeps you have a warranty issue. Because that would imply that the car beeps while you are sitting at traffic lights too.

yes, I want to disable the beeping, not the safety feature
