annoying seat belt buzzer

Does anyone know of a way to disable the seatbelt buzzer. I do wear my belts but find it extremely annoying if you don't have them done up immediately. I recall someone saying you can reprogramme it with an on off ingnition sequence.Thanks in advance

Not that easy as de-fusing. The seatbelts chime could be tied in with other things as well. Is there anything in the owners manual on how to do it? I found how to do this on pg 180-181 in my 08 manual.

unplug it under the seat at the base of the buckle but the light will be on in the dash but not flashing like when the buzzer is bonging so its not bad.

Rangers the same as well? I wouldn't mind doing it for when I'm 4x4ing or driving around the property hauling gear on the farm. Kinda dumb listening to a chime when you're moving at 5 km/h on private property. LR

If you quickly buckle and unbuckle the seat belt it'll disable the warning until you turn off the truck.

As well the manual has a procedure for permanently turning off the belt minder as well.

Yep, pretty easy to turn off the seat belt reminder chime, you can do both sides, the procedure is located in pages 183/184 in your manual, here is an excerpt from said manual:

Quote:
Deactivating/activating the Belt-Minder feature
The driver and front passenger Belt-Minder are
deactivated/activated independently. When deactivating/activating
one seating position, do not buckle the other position as this will
terminate the process.
Read Steps 1 - 4 thoroughly before proceeding with the
deactivation/activation programming procedure.
Note: If you are using MyKey™, the Belt-Minder cannot be disabled.
Also, if the Belt-Minder has been previously disabled, it will be
re-enabled after the use of MyKey™. Refer to MyKey™ in the Locks
and security chapter.
The driver and front passenger Belt-Minder features can be
deactivated/activated by performing the following procedure:
Before following the procedure, make sure that:
• The parking brake is set
• The gearshift is in P (Park)
• The ignition switch is in the off position
• The driver and front passenger safety belts are unbuckled
1. Turn the ignition switch to the on position. DO NOT START THE
ENGINE.
2. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off. (Approximately one
minute)
• Step 3 must be completed within 30 seconds after the safety belt
warning light turns off.
3. For the seating position being disabled, buckle then unbuckle the
safety belt three times, ending in the unbuckled state.
• After Step 3, the restraint system warning light (airbag light) will be
turned on for three seconds.
4. Within approximately seven seconds of the light turning off, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt.
• This will disable the Belt-Minder feature for that seating position if it
is currently enabled. As confirmation, the restraint system warning
light will flash four times per second for three seconds.
• This will enable the Belt-Minder feature for that seating position if it
is currently disabled. As confirmation, the restraint system warning
light will flash four times per second for three seconds, followed by
three seconds with the light off, then followed by the restraint system
warning light flashing four times per second for three seconds again.
Enjoy!

If they only built vehicles as good as they built those annoying seat belt buzzers eh ???? The buzzer in my little Toyota Matrix starts beeping and gets faster and faster like a bomb is about to go off. Extremly annoying but it sure makes me put them belts on first.
