This was for my '05 but I just tried it in my '12 and seemed to work.


1. Set the parking brake
2. Put it in Park (auto) or neutral (manual)
3. Ignition off, doors closed, lights off
4. Turn the ignition switch to RUN (or ON) position (Do not start car)
5. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off (about 1 to 2 minutes)
** The next three steps must be completed within 60 seconds or the
procedure
will have to be repeated.
6. Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times, ending with it
unbuckled
7. turn on the headlights, turn off the headlights
8. Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times, ending with it
unbuckled
** After step 8 the safety belt warning light will be turned on for three
seconds
9. Within seven seconds of the safety belt warning light turning off, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt
** this will disable the belt minder if it is enabled.... This is also the
procedure for enabling the belt minder if it is disabled.

Easier just to wear the seatbelt, not to mention much smarter. You look much cooler standing next to your wrecked car then you would with a sheet over you in the front seat.

Just a thought.

For a race car with harnesses this is something that kinda needs to be done.

However, if one is just someone who doesn't like to wear the seatbelt for whatever reason, grow up.

Not everyone appreciates the chime. And not every state requires an adult driver to wear one. If I'm not legally required to wear it, why must Ford require me to listen to a chime then? Do you read your airbag warning stickers on your sun visors every time you drive your car and need them to remind you about how they work or could you do without those?
*Nobody is saying seatbelts aren't smart, we're talking about a stupid ding chime.
I used to be a traffic homicide investigator. I wear mine. However, ...How is LESS government and corporate micro management a bad thing? Yes, if your state requires it, there's a fine and consequences. Yes, if you don't wear it, your risk of serious injury and death is pretty substantial.
But a freaking chime? Like grown responsible drivers don't do it out of habit as soon as we start the car?

I bet you people would chug your Mcd's coffee if it didn't say "Caution, contents are HOT"

Sadly companies generally have to pander to the lowest common denominator.

Yea and 80% of drivers fall into that denominator.

And it's so ironic if you get on here and say Engaging the ricers or Camaros wanting to race your Mustang is about stupid but mention turning off a seatbelt chime and suddenly that's stupid. A chime people....not the actual seatbelt itself.

The chime is annoying. I just thought the ritual to shut the chime off was funny

Only times it goes off for my car is a passenger, and It ends up going off as I remind them, or backing out of our narrow driveway to let my parents car out.

The post was about disabling the reminder chime; not about NOT wearing your belt.
You can drive the old vehicles we have in my family that didn't come with seat/lap belts (since there were none then).
It's kind of funny they allow that, but you MUST have them in your vehicle (& buckled).
(but, wear your belt!!)

Such a rebel... Hopefully nobody ever has to say "see, told you so" about the seat belt thing.

FYI some medical insurance will not cover you if you weren't wearing your seat belt and some life insurance may not pay out. Hopefully this does not apply in your case, it does in mine.

you can always buckle up before you start it, to.
like my dad loves to tell me
...every dang time.
...it doesn't bother me any.
...& he gets in & he wants to wait forever until he's buckled before i take it out of park.
ain't nobody got time for that!!

Hm, maybe they make the sound annoying, so people would put their seat belt on, to make the sound stop.
Food for thought?


Pick your poison.
