Seat belt chime disable

I disabled the seat belt chime. Is there anyway to get the information screen to stop flashing that the seat belt isn't fastened? It's really annoying.

The bigger question is why... not using your seatbelt is illegal. Is it really that hard to spend 5 seconds buckling up...

I didn't ask for a lecture. If you didn't have an answer to my question then I didn't need your opinion.

I have also been curious about this. How did you disable the chime in the first place, was it just a fuse?
In the case of big game hunting, spotting something then getting out of your jeep to go after it, and having the seat belt chime or door chime go off scaring everything off isn't desirable.
It's also annoying to simply drive down your own driveway - private property where speed limit and seat belt laws don't apply, to simply pick up the mail I don't need to have dinging noises the whole way.

I agree, if you want to disable it, do so. I disabled mine because I spend a lot of time on dirt roads and getting in and out to open ranch gates. I hated that thing dinging at me all the time. If I don't want my belt on, a couple second reminder is okay, but that thing seemed to never quit. Same with the DRL's, I pulled the relays on them, why ride around in daylight offroad with your lights on?

I always use my belts even when driving in a parking lot, but I do not understand why it is illegal at all. If someone wants to kill themselves it should be there business.

Incase anyone needs the instructions on how to turn off the chime.

To remove seatbelt chime
1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and fasten the drivers seatbelt.
2. Start engine, and wait for Seat Belt warning light to turn OFF.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting engine, unbuckle and then re-buckle driver's seat belt at least 3 times, ending with belt buckled.
4. Turn off the engine. A single chime will sound to signify that your life is in your own hands.

It can take several tries to get it disabled.

I know this thread has been dead for over a year (this thread) but the reason why it's illegal to drive without seatbelt is because of the money that is involved. Thank outside the box for a few moments. I believe in freedoms, but if it's gonna cost me more cash, then no. So here what is involved; I work for a city hospital for a city that is broke, citizens that are broke too. If someone comes into ER from a car wreck without wearing their seatbelt, either the hospital or the state taxes are gonna fund restoring that guys life, because in our society we cannot let an adult die unless if they choose Do Not resuscitate (medical DNR) (but it is ok for babies to die, just not adults). So that is one reason, taxes and/or lost wages for employee's.
The person who gets in a wreck may have a job, and their employer needs to scramble for replacement, time=money. Last reason, and this is happens with other situations, auto insurance premiums. Premiums are based on the location you live in, the premiums i pay for the same coverage, would not be the same for L.A., CA for instance. If a state allowed no seatbelts, auto insurance premiums would go up to cover the cost of those who get injured. Seatbelts save lifes and most importantly, they reduce injuries.

And for game hunting? Wouldn't the engine noise scare them away too? Or the latch opening? Or any of the other number of sounds a car makes?

note to self: don't take my minivan that backfires to a hunting competition.

I'm pretty sure we all know the benefits from wearing a seat-belt. The discussion was for those that want to disable the chime for when we are getting in and out frequently, normally off-road and/or on our own property and we don't want to hear the chime going off incessantly. Nobody will argue about saving lives and less injuries...well it is the internet so someone probably will.

Chimes off

Thanks for resurrecting this thread. Now I can turn mine off since they were annoying this weekend when I was working a herding trial. I was crossing fields and needed to close and open gates and get my collie out the hatch from her crate to move sheep. There was no reason to buckle up and the chime is annoying.

On public highways I always buckle up and anyone who doesnt who is injured in an accident that is their fault should be left to die. Same with no helmet than no medical care. We need to cull fools like you from population and prevent you from reproducing.

Or you could just buckle it with the belt behind you while seated. Less work.
