i figuiered it out it was in the manual and it worked 1 turn truck to on w/ parking brake on (dont start the engone) 2. wait for the seatbelt light to turn off (1 min) the within 50 seconds buckle and un buckle 9 times. 3 the light will turn on for 3 seconds 4- within 7 seconds of light going off buckle and unbuckle one time the light should blink 5 times and you are good to go have to do for each seat.

I might have to check this out. Its annoying because I always start the truck and then put my seatbelt on. I always wear my seatbelt but I just hate the noise in the meantime.

why did they have to make a secret code for this? that is a really hectic way of turning off the damn seatbelt buzzer.

if its as easy as it used to be, just unplug the damn buzzer. i did that on my '93 the day i brought it home. no more buzzers period. im well aware than my seat belt aint on, that my key is in the ignition and if i left my lights on or not.

Simple on the 01's..........when the chime goes off, just depress the seatbelt button for two or three seconds....and presto, done.

Seems Ford improved the situation.

I turned mine off with Ford's IDS software and VCM. It was just a parameter that could be turned off. I still wear mine though, I just don't wear it offroad because it locks up all the time.

i disabled mine a week before i wrecked my truck. i dont see why people bash it so much. i wear my seatbelt when i feel i need it and dont when i dont. i dont need some kind of dinger to keep track of it for me.

i looked up how to do it on google, but it should be in your manual under belt minder. its a funky combination of buckles and unbuckes and flashing your headlights. was for me atleast

It's a pain in the butt when you are getting in and out of your truck though....I mow lawns on the side and have 5 lawns in one subdivision, of course, I don't need to put my seatbelt on when I'm moving up six houses to mow the next one....dur dur dur... I like to keep my truck and lawn equipment close.

Reason I disabled the dinger is that I got way too pissed off at it while driving the truck on job sites and on my or my friends property without the seat belt. I also confused the truck into thinking the passenger door is open when the driver's door is open. Did that because leaving the key in accessory and listening to the radio the damn dinger goes off when the door is open. Screw that! lol.

I got rid of that by pulling the ignition out and breaking off that little orange clip thing and the brass contact. I guess it is a switch to signal that it is in the acc. position. It doesn't seem to work on all of them though...
