How to disable seatbelt chime

I just tried this on my 14 and it worked. Now before all the negative comments about how it's a safety thing (yes I know, I wear mine) and how it's illegal to not wear a seatbelt (actually it's not illegal where I live NH...you can drive unbuckled waving at the troopers)
Well there's times I just don't need or want an extra chime or ding or whatever, so it's nice if you want this feature disabled.

Don't want to wake up the wife after a late night of skirt chasing?

Not sure why anyone would do this except to not drive without wearing the belt. Sorry I don't buy it. This thread does not explicitly violate TOS so it'll stay up but not a fan of it.

Wear your seatbelt or have fun winding up roadkill if you ever wreck badly.

Some people just don't like wearing it. Can't get mad at them for it. It's just personal choice. Very dangerous nonetheless

I agree, I wear mine all the time. I'm also a proponent and retired as a traffic homicide investigator. However, in NH, it is perfectly legal for an adult to choose not to wear it. I support rights more than safety.
And come on....there are times on your own street, or jumping in and out doing several errand stops when a lot of people don't keep putting it on or off.
I didn't post a link on how to disable or remove your seat belts.....just a stupid ding bell.
Less government intrusion, more personal choice and responsibility.
Motorcyclists should also wear helmets..but some states don't require it. Should motorcycles all have ding bells reminding you to wear a helmet and not shut off until you do?
Should your car mute your radio and chime a safety warning every time you speed? I don't need my car telling me what to do.

There's gov't intrusion and gov't intrusion... I buckle up even if I'm just going around the block. Only takes 1 jackass when you are right by your house not thinking you need to buckle because "only going a few min".

To each their own I guess. Not buckling up only hurts the person who doesn't buckle.

Well them and their family if they die or are really injured because now family has to deal with a lost loved one or having to go through recovery.


On the plus side I guess if you live and its a bad accident that is not your fault you can pull an Office Space and sue for $$$$...

On a nifty side note, a lot of patrol officers like to disable the Ford seatbelt chime for stealth reason. Between 2a.m. And 5 a.m. When they cruise industrial parks at 5 mph with all their lights off and brake light cut off switch. (Switch that lets you ride the brakes and no lights come on)
This way they can have all the windows down, listening for breaking glass etc and also bail out quick without unbuckling.
It's not a way around not wearing it because most agencies have a clause of no pay for medical expenses if you didnt have it on. And with today's vehicle computers, they know if you had it on or not. (And exactly how fast you were going, throttle % open, braking force)

I have to say that although I wear my belt at all times and encourage everyone else to wear theirs (in fact, I won't move my car unless everyone in it is buckled), I do agree with Waylap1. "Less government intrusion, more personal choice and responsibility."

Until you get in an accident and are thrown around the car and hit the other passengers and hurt them also. It doesn't just affect you. Thats just for the seat belt though. As for the sound, i hate any type of beeping. Like the 99-04 beeping when the key is in the ignition (not clicked to the on position) and the door is open. Makes it a pain in the *** working on your interior and listening to music in the car.

If you're lucky, the air bags will stop you from going through the windshield, but then the shrapnel from the air bags will probably get you.

Any legal issues that can happen from turning off the chime? And can it be turned back on?

I'll be doing this soon then. I always wear it anyways, it's a nuisance to hear whenever though.

I agree. One thing ole waylap and I can agree on. I don't need the government or my car telling me what to do. I'm going to wear it, but because I want to. I already turned it off just cuz I can.

Nice. Doing the same next time I'm in it. It's just irritating.
