Does anyone know how to disable the annoying :mad: repeating seat belt alarm? I know in many vehicles the repeating alarm can be disabled, but I couldn't find anything in the owner's manual. Thanks ahead of time if anyone posts how to do this.

It beeping with it in use?

You could buy a piece that fits into the receiver and it thinks its in use, so it doesnt beep.
You might be able to get one from your dealer if you ask them I think for an "obese extender" or something like that

It won't work. When connected this is doing a contact.

I second what everybodys saying : wear it ! This way it wont ring.

I don't know how to disable the chime, but I do feel that if you are already in the habit of wearing your seatbelts then you shouldn't have to put up with the annoyance. Funny story, the other day I had my two miniature Dacshunds riding with me and both were sitting in passenger seat...whenever I took a corner the seatbelt chime would come on for a few seconds. :D sitting together they probably weighed 19lbs combined.

get an obese extender and then cut off the end and plug it in and leave it there.

older gm's you could simply unplug the sensor at the base of the seat belt buckle....doubt its the case here....i know fords you can disable them, by buckle unbuckle so many times, but i didnt read anything like that in the nox owners manual.....talk to the dealer, service guys might now...

why does everyone keep telling this guy to wear it ? thats his bussiness,who cares.
There are hiden costs to all of us when someone doesn't wear their belt .Lets suppose he's in a accident without his belt on, suffers more extensive injuries and the cost of patching him up goes up.His insurance pay's and ours goes up
Wear the belt It's probably the law

I have a very good insurance rate that's based on my driving record and I do wear the belt but if this added cost is figured into it must be minimal so if that's the case I'm ok with it. Buy the extender plug it in cut the harness off and enjoy your drive.

GAWD, PEOPLE. I ask a simple question... Clearly no one knows if this can be done, if I find something that works (other than sticking in a male buckle to fool the BCU) I'll add it to this thread.

Gritts,

Just an FYI but the advanced air bag system in the Theta vehicles use the slow down rate AND the seat belt tensioner to determine how fast to blow the air bag. If there is no data from the seat belt, the PCM will blow the air bag full speed even in a 20 MPH frontal impact. Itll be the same if you were in a 90 MPH wreck.

I dont think the beeping is continuous (ie a Ford). I believe it only does it a few times and then the seat belt warning light stays lit on the dash. No? As already mentioned, you could get an extender or go to the junk yard and get the seat belt latch. May have to tweak the latch to get it work, but can be done.

Yeah it beeps four times, twice in a 5-or-so minute period. Maybe I'm trivializing it, but... the beeping really isn't that big of a deal. It's not very loud (unlike pretty much any other company of vehicle, Honda I'm looking at you!)

*Please note I don't advocate not using the seatbelt. Use as required by law.

Listen **** it. No one came here asking if you think they should wear the freaking belt or not.

I always wear my belt. My kids always wear their belts. The stupid vehicle dings at me while I'm still in park.

Many times, I sit in the vehicle and let it run for a minute or two while I finish a text message or email before getting on the road.
It's infuriating when I haven't done anything besides start it and 15 seconds later it dings at me or the passenger to don a seatbelt.
