Seatbelt Chime

I just got a 2006 65th Anniversary Edition. I always were my seatbelt so the chime never came on until the guys in my carpool hopped in. They flat out refuse to wear the belt. It seems the chime only come on when the front passenger is not wearing it. Is there anything I can do? The p.i.a. guy said he stuck his car key in the seatbelt thing in his acura and this stopped it? any ideas?

Lay down the law. Tell him no belt no ride. You don't need a ticket or to get in an accident and have him injured.

Edit: I see you're from NY. In NY it's REQUIRED for the front passenger to wear a belt. I believe the DRIVER gets the ticket if no belt on passenger....

There's plenty of room in that baby, have them sit their butts in the back! Better yet, have THEM drive their vehicles. Sorry, but this irritates me because not only are they putting themselves in danger, but they can/will cost you money and points if/when you get pulled over.

Show some backbone man!

It is. If he doesn't wear his belt, he doesn't get a ride. Tell him that. If he refuses, pull over and make him get out. He'll put it on PDQ. Either that or he'll be out of the carpool. Either way, problem solved.

I've had to resort to this a few times. People listen when you enforce your rules.

Here in Michigan it is the law.

If you don't want a dead buddy when you crash make him ware the belt.

Sorry but "REFUSING" to ware your seat belt is BULL ____!

of course he should wear his belt, but it's in the owner's manual how to stop it from chiming. I didn't turn it off in mine, just to irritate people to wear one.

Just to add a little more to why he should wear his belt and you should enforce it, if you do get into even the slightest of fender benders and your insurance company scans the OBD computer and sees that anyone in the front seat was not wearing their belt, they will not payout for your damage. They did this to my sister and her fiance and told them they were lucky they had their belts on and to another friend of mine.

Always enforce the belt policy, it is just a good practice.

there is a procedure in the manual to disable this and it is not recommended, with that said its, roughly, turn the car to on until the seatbelt light goes off, and turn the car off, buckle and unbuckle both front belts at least 3 times, you'll hear a tone and that's it...may take several tries and you'll need a friend.

Again, not recommended and the seat belt light will always stay on when not buckled, but chime will go away.

Drive safely.

If he rides shotgun, then he absolutely must wear a seatbelt. You're responsible for all passengers under 16 in the car, and all older than 16 and in the front seat. If he's in the back, he doesn't have to wear one. Even though there's plenty of articles in the paper about how everyone but the driver dies in an auto accident, he doesn't have to wear one when he's Back Seat Charlie.

Make them all wear one anyway. Better they wear one than you get tied up in a lawsuit after their death.

I disabled mine. I wear my seatbelt but have this thing for authority, I don't like someone/thing telling me what I have to do.
