Re: 06 SEATBELT CHIME DISABLE

I think there is a plug under the seat that you disconnect,
I have a little connecter that goes under my seat I unpluged when removing the seat to take my carpet out and have never pluged it back in.

I am not saying that you have to wear your seat belt, but is highly suggested if you want to try to survive an accident.

If you unplug the seat belt pretentioner like he's talkin.. Then the Air bag light will be on.. And the air bags may or may not deploy.

Seat Belt Chime - Fixed!!!

Here's how to disable the chime WITHOUT disabling the airbag sensors. Like imcastock said, if you disconnect the plug, you WILL get the "Airbag" light since that wiring harness also feeds to another sensor right next to the seatbelt buckle.

Disclaimer: I am in no way taking any responsibility for any consequential results from this DIY. If you get seriously injured, maimed, dismembered or die because you forgot to put on your seatbelt, you assume full responsibility!

OK, here goes:

1) Look at the seatbelt buckle next to the center console glove compartment and you'll notice two little Torx screws. They're the "tamper-proof" kind, so you'll need find the exact size for this DIY. They usually sell 'em in a set so that'll be your best bet.


2) Remove the Torx screws and pull back that cover. Inside of that cover, you'll see a little circuit board with a black sliding contact. Simply remove that contact from the board and TA-DA, you've silenced the annoying chime.

Explanation: The circuit (blue and yellow wires) is normally closed when the black sliding contact is in the outermost (seatbelt released) position. Once you've buckled the belt, it opens the contact. This is what you've done on a permanent basis.

I hope this helps everyone who's been driven crazy by the seatbelt chime that refuses to turn off. Good luck!

The seatbelt chime, as well as the key in ign chime is the same unit and it is integrated with the BCM. The BCM will also let you know that wires are disconnected on some circuits.

cclngthr,

Yes, you are correct. Most all of the safety features tie back to the BCM (Body Control Module). My understanding (potentially limited) is that the BCM will fire a charge in the seatbelt connector to "pretension" the seatbelt in the event of a collision. By removing the little black connector, you are essentially telling the BCM that the seatbelt is connected. Ultimately, if you were to get into an accident without your seatbelt connected, the BCM might fire that charge (which would do nothing), so you'd be depending on your airbags to hold you in place. Again, I'm not recommending you drive around without your seatbelt. But when I leave my driveway and drive 200ft to pick up my mail, sometimes putting on your seatbelt to take it off 10 seconds later in a 10mph zone seems a bit unnecessary.

Old Dude,

Yes, it will work on 2007's. I have an '07 SE and my car is the basis of this writeup. I've had this "mod" on my car for 7000 miles now and there are not warning lights, and no MIL/CEL's with regards to disabling the seatbelt chime. The key-in-the-ignition sound, which uses the same chime is unaffected and works just fine.

Hope this helps!

In the event of a crash.. The SRS module does all the thinking of firing or not firing the air bags and or pretentioners.
