The problem isn't that I'm too dumb to wear a seat belt, it's that I don't have a break room at my job, so my breaks are spent in my car. I live in the south, it's hot without the air running. But then I have the hideous alarm.

You should wear a seat belt while you sleep... Stay safe.

Im pretty sure its in the owners manual how to do it, i dont have mine on me right now but if you google it you can find the procedure. I turned mine off simply because when im working on the car and sitting in the drivers seat it wont stop chiming, just remember to buckle up when you hit the road!

Deactivating/activating the BeltMinder feature





Read steps 1 - 9 thoroughly before proceeding


with the deactivation/activation programming


procedure.





The BeltMinder feature can be deactivated/activated


by performing the following procedure:





Before following the procedure, make sure that:


² The parking brake is set.


² The gearshift is in P (Park) (automatic


transmission) or the neutral position (manual


transmission).


² The ignition switch is in the OFF position.


² All vehicle doors are closed.





The driver’s safety belt is unbuckled.


² The parklamps/headlamps are in OFF position (If


vehicle is equipped with Autolamps, this will not


affect the procedure).


To reduce the risk of injury, do not


deactivate/activate the Belt Minder feature


while driving the vehicle.


BeltMinder activation and deactivation


procedure





1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (or ON)


position. (DO NOT START THE ENGINE.)





2. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off.


(Approximately 1–2 minutes.)


² Steps 3–5 must be completed within 60 seconds


or the procedure will have to be repeated.





3. Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times,


ending with the safety belt unbuckled. This can be


done before or during BeltMinder warning activation.





4. Turn on the parklamps/headlamps, turn off the


parklamps/headlamps.





5. Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times,


ending with the safety belt unbuckled.


² After step 5 the safety belt warning light will be


turned on for three seconds.





6. Within seven seconds of the safety belt warning


light turning off, buckle then unbuckle the safety


belt.


² This will disable BeltMinder if it is currently


enabled, or enable BeltMinder if it is currently


disabled.





7. Confirmation of disabling BeltMinder is provided


by the safety belt warning light flashing four times


per second for three seconds.





8. Confirmation of enabling BeltMinder is provided


by:


² The safety belt warning light flashing four times


per second for three seconds.








Followed by three seconds with the safety belt


warning light off.


² Once again, the safety belt warning light will flash


four times per second for three seconds.





9. After receiving confirmation, the


deactivation/activation procedure is complete.

That from p. 111 of the manual (3rd printing).


I know this was useful to me for my truck, which I will use in hauling stuff around the house and the dinging was making life pretty miserable.

Could you delete the block quote from your post so that the bogus info isn't out there misleading folks? I feel bad I didn't read his original post closely enough.


I'm not sure what your reference to the Edge is? Did I miss that? I was certain he was asking for an '02 Mustang V6? I can probably find the procedure for the Edge if you need it though.
Thanks.

Yeah man I can do that. The 99-04 cars are technically a SN95 so to differentiate from the 94-98 body style the 99-04 gets called the New Edge body style

Ahh. Dang I learn something new every day, I thought you meant "Ford Edge" . I'm kind of new to the Mustang world. This V6 power plant intrigued me and now I'm hooked on the HP/Cubic Inch displacement. A far cry from my rotary engine days.


Thanks!!.

Haha yeah I can see where it'd get confusing, I tend to just assume everybody knows what the various bodies are called

Thanks WordySanchez. Was beginning to think getting a serious answer was a lost cause. Us ladies get the run around on these type forums more than we get actual responses. Much appreciated!

I've only had this car about three weeks, and I've searched high & low for a way to get rid of the alarm. Now that it's gone, it's time to get down to the fun stuff!

No worries, glad to help. I always get a little irked too when you ask a question and the first 20 replies are, "Why would you want to do THAT?!" or "Just don't do that then." I get not replying at all, but that.... bleh.


Anyway, hope the procedure works. If you still have your manual it should be under the "Seats and Restraints" section, albeit buried in there. Good luck.

Re-reading my reply, I don't intend that to be a 'dis to anyone, no disrespect intended. I could just relate to the non-answer thing. If folks like MileHigh hadn't pointed out my mistake I'd never have found the right info. Thanks again.
