Disabling the Seat Belt Chime

Disabling the Seat Belt Chime

Part #:

A few people out there still like to drive around with their seat belts off. Now they have to deal with an irritating chime that reminds them to put the seat belt on. Wearing of Seatbelts is not only a law pretty much everywhere, but it will save your life. I've heard plenty of lame reasons for not wearing a seatbelt, everything from I don't want to be trapped in a vehicle if it rolls over, to I want to be able to get out of the vehicle right after a crash in case of a fire. Now understanding that most of the time if the vehicle rolls over or crash's hard enough that a fire is emminent, not wearing your seat belt would probably have ensured that you will be laying well away from the vehicle, or in no condition to really care about the fire anymore. I've seen it enough times, but if you still want to go without, at least I'll tell you how to disable the chime. I will always recommend wearing your seatbelt.

Disable the Chime:

The Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) can be enabled or disabled by your authorized dealer or by following these steps:

NOTE: The following steps must occur within the first 60 seconds of the ignition switch being turned to the ON or START position. The manufacturer does not recommend deactivating the Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert).

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and buckle the driver or front passenger seat belt.
2. Turn the ignition key to the ACCESSORY/RUN position (engine does not need to be running), and wait for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle, unbuckle and then re-buckle the driver or front passenger seat belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with the seat belt buckled.
4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.
The Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) can be reactivated by repeating this procedure.
NOTE: Although the Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) has been deactivated, the Seat Belt Warning Light will continue to illuminate while the driver’s seat belt remains unfastened.

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
