How do you turn off the seat belt alert chime?

Default How do you turn off the seat belt alert chime?

I always wear my seatbelt, so stop with that line of questioning.

But I also carry out around a lot of wine, and sometimes I have heavy stuff on my seat, that is not a human. A 30 minute drive is bad enough but if I have to go longer distances, it's basically the worst. I can't tell if it intermittently gives up and turns off a bit, but is there any way to limit that notification?

It's probably against federal law to disable or have an option of silencing the alarm. Can't you just buckle the seatbelt behind the box/package?

I would be seat belting that wine in place nice and tight or strap it down in the back. hate to lose some nice wine, plus you would not want it flying around when some idiot runs into you.

I always wear my belt, but, when I got short seat belt extenders, they had the effect of tricking the system into thinking that the belts are always attached.
That would fix your issue, but I ended up removing the one on the passenger side because it made the car think a child was on board and cut off the passenger air bag.

When I carry wine I buckle it in. Aside from the fact that I can't stand stuff moving around when drive, I wouldn't want to risk precious cargo.

On the first point, how can people drive around with things that slide around, or dangle from the mirror? That'd drive me nuts. Some may say that's a short drive, but why risk it?

+1 for buckling it in. I go so far as to loop the seatbelt through the handles of bags if I go to pick up food so as to keep it in place. I’d do the same with wine. One hard stop and you’d have a huge mess if you don’t have it secured.

I take my cat to the vet once in a while and I always buckle the carrier in with the belt through the carry handle.
Not just to prevent the annoying ding ding ding of the seatbelt warning but mainly to protect the puddy tat in case I have a prang although my last prang was over 38 years ago.

For those who don’t know, if you pull the seat belt all the way out, it will then ratchet back in. Great for strapping in big boxes, etc.

IMO, for such a small use case, I would just attach the seat belt to stop the alert.

A) I am a moron. What a idiotic moment for me. LOL Of course I could just buckle it. BUT THE BOXES WERE ALREADY IN THE CAR. lololol So silly.

BUT

As I recall, there were instructions in the manual as to how to disable the nanny-chimes...I definitely remember finding them in the manual for other vehicles, including some older Jaguar products. Admittedly, I generally just disable the driver's side chime. While I may choose to flaunt Texas law, I typically expect my passengers to be belted as an unbelted passenger is a quick invite for a chat at the side of the road. Seat belt by itself with a solo passenger will generally NOT get such a conversation in my part of the Great State...
