First off, before one of you starts in with the pros n' cons of wearing a seatbelt let me get something out of the way.

This thread is not about whether or not it's best to wear a seatbelt. I don't care if you wear your seatbelt or not. If I choose to wear my seatbelt or not is none of your business. I don't tell people what they should or shouldn't do when it comes to their personal choices. I have never asked anyone how they feel about me wearing my seatbelt, so please don't tell me. Your feelings are none of my business.

This is about annoying alarms that never stop beeping until you obey some computer's orders to buckle-up that was programed on the orders of some Mothers Against Freedom of Choice type group whose bankrupt opinions found their way into my truck. Not cool.

I find that by running your hand between your seat and the female end of your buckle you will feel a wire coming from out of the plastic buckle. Pull the wire up to view and follow that wire to a plug.



If you unplug it, your seatbelt alarm will be disabled and you won't have a blinking light nagging you constantly. Information, take it or leave it.

Pretty easy mod. My pickup doesn't tell me to or not but my trailblazer won't shut up. Going to have to check that out when it gets back home. Any ideas if this will set an ses light or if something reads off that seatbelt warning?

I've had no SES lights or anything other than sweet Golden Silence.

It's almost as if the nice little plug was put there on purpose.

I spend a lot of time opening and closing gates in pastures so I don't use my seatbelts much. So I started looking for a way to stop that annoying chime and found out that all you have to do at least on a 05 HD is look in the receiver part and you will see a black plastic moveable bottom, just take something and press it down until you hear it click. The clicking sound is the latch mechanism and presto it thinks the seatbelt is latched. When you get ready to use your belt just press the release button and then you can insert the belt.

Damn thing starts chiming as soon as i move the truck, really annoying when trying to hook up the trailer by myself. I dont mind the chime as a reminder but you can only turn it down so far through the stereo. Factory settings dont allow you to quiet it down to a muffle but still have it work.

One person told me it was in the computer and that a dealer had to disable it so I called the dealer and they said there was no way to disable it (go figure) so then I took the male end for the center lap belt and inserted it into the drivers latch and it stopped.

That chime

Ever notice, no matter how old a truck gets, no matter how many parts have to be replaced that seatbelt/door alarm always works!

If automakers let the guy who designed that alarm take a shot at some of the other pieces we would have trucks that lasted forever.

At work, if you're not gonna wear it, we usually plug it in behind the seat. That way it stays plugged in and there's no annoying ding ding ding.

Tell you what though....

GM's arent NEARLY as annoying as Fords...

I've posted pics close to the same before, have had mine this way for over 2 years and no codes or anything. Very simple to do.

I agree with Unit453, the older fords you could just push in on the latch and disable it but ford figured that one out . GM only has a slow ding for 5 times, Ford is steady for like 5 seconds.
