Cut the wires to all your speakers?
That won't work; they stopped using the radio speakers for that purpose.

Here's other things you could try:

- Connect your seatbelt first, then sit on top of it.
- Take a really sharp knife to a junkyard, and cut a seatbelt buckle off a junker. Plug that in to the receptacle.
- Take the instrument cluster out and smash the chime with a hammer or squeeze it really hard with some Vice-Grips.
- Take out the driver's seat, find the wires coming out of the receptacle assembly, and either cut them or short them together to make the car think the buckle is inserted.

It may be possible using a tech 2 but I doubt any dealer would want to do it. You could call & ask.
It is possible to adjust the volume of all dings globally (normal or loud). Look up chime level adjust in your owner's manual.
You can defeat it by keeping the belts buckled (I believe that's still true).

Crown Vics are often used as police vehicles which is probably why
Easy way to turn it off on the G6 is to wear your seatbelt ;)

You were given a very simple answer with the cutting wires..just find if its a normally open or short...easy enough to test too...

or just wear your seat belt....wth

By simple I meant like a little trick that you can do to stop the ding not an actual mod to be done...I was looking to see if there was a little trick to turn off the ding like in the crown vics but there isnt. Like I said I appreciate the input but I dont appreciate nasty responses

This is your best bet. There is a wire coming out of the seat buckle that relays the data to the car. If you can trick it into thinking the seatbelt is in at all times, no more chime.

I'd like to murder the 'key in ignition' reminder chime so I can play the radio when working on the car but they've made that difficult also. It's probably something I could talk the dealer into doing though.

I don't know if I'd call any of the responses nasty, but here is the thing...You are asking how to disable a fundamental safety reminder within the car which has been put in place spefically to remind people to wear their seatbelts which not only is the law but also common sense. It is not that far off if someone were to come in and ask "how do I disable the airbags". What do you think the responses to that would be?
I understand that you may have a (somewhat) decent reason to want to do this, but I was actually asked the exact same question about a month ago by a friend and refused to give a correct answer simply because it is stupid, and if they were to get injured in a crash and it were shown that they forgot to put on their seatbelf because I helped disable the safety warning then guess what...I am liable

The Event Data Recorder stores info about whether the seat belt was buckled & that info can be subpoenaed in case of a crash. Of course, the computer can't tell if you were sitting on the buckled belt. At least not yet.

Born2ski. I understand your point, but how so u figure you would be liable? If I don't want to where my seatbelt that's my fault and a stupid ding isn't gonna change my mind. It's not like we are talking futuristic cars that automatically put ur seatbelt on for you and he wants to disable that. I think he was just asking if there was a "switch" Luke being able to decide if you want the doors to lock when you start the car or put it into gear.

Also its your opinion that not wearing a seatbelt is stupid. It's 50/50 whether its gonna save your life or not. Even the cops will tell you that. I was involved in an accident where the only reason I didn't die was because I wasnt wearing my seatbelt.

I was thinking about taking out the seat belt and putting in a 5 pt harnass... Just cause I tend to drive like an ******* on crystal meth and it would be good to be semi-safe.

Would definitely also need to turn off the seatbelt dinging...


The easiest way to not have to deal with it though, would be to just turn up the radio :p
