I hate that annoying beeping. I did the 20 click thing and it certainly helped but I wasn't satisfied. The chime comes on almost before you can get your seatbelt on!!! I don't need a chime to remind me to wear my seltbelt. Here's how to end it forever and it takes a minute. If you pull down the rubber on the seatbelt you'll notice two sets of wires going to the seatbelt. They both travel in the same housing from the seatbelt to under the seat where it splits in two. One goes to a yellow clip (which I think has something to do with airbag/seatbelt tensioner ???). The othe is a white clip with yellow ends and that simply controls the seatbelt light and and chime. It's as easy as unclipping a clip and NO MORE DING< DING< DING!!!! Enjoy......


Here is the split of the wire housing into two under the seat.


Here is the yellow connector for saftey devices. And the sinister connector in the background.


Here she is!!!!! Disconnect it and enjoy peace and quiet!!

That's the one I've been looking for. I've mentioned a word of it here a few times and no one seemed to know. I never new which black one had to go.

Thanks a lot!!!

Didn't work for me. I'll double check that I pulled the right one, but there seems to be only one that is white w/ yellow tips underneath there and it's unplugged but still chiming :(

I have an 07. Basically feel the wire housing come down out of the seat belt under the seat and you should feel it split in two follow those and give it a try.

I'm thinking of a different chiming problem. My problem is with the open door chime while the key is in the ACC position. I frequently leave my door open so I can hear the music while loading the car and/or getting ready for snowboarding. Is there any way to disable that chime?

Well, I had to do exactly that to my car... and for the same reason. Plus, once in a while I find myself sitting on some random street, at night, and smoki- err doing things that, well, aren't exactly legal :N_poke: ... and whenever I'd open my door my dome light would come on (my wife always turns it to the door position when I turn it off) and needless to say that can be a huge 'bust'.

Simply open up your door, and look for the black rubber coated pressure switch near the door latch on the body of the car. One screw... take it off. Disconnect the wire (or wires, doesn't matter really) and no more ding!

Of course it will also affect your door ajar indicator for the driver door, but I always know when it hasn't closed all of the way so it isn't a problem for me. If it turns out to be a problem, just reconnect it!

are you guys absolutely sure it is OK to disconnect those 2 wires?

will the airbag, seat belt tensioner etc still work?

I am going to check with my service department, but I am sure that the wire in question is tied in to the air bag system. When you unplug the wire, does the airbag light light up?
