Seat belt chime deactivation: 2011???

I've owned a couple Ford trucks and was able to disable the seat belt chime with no problems. But with my 2011....no such luck. I followed the manual to a "T". On the 3rd buckle, the light starts flashing rapidly and the 4th buckle it lights and then goes out. Does this trick work on the 2011s?? According to the manual it does.

If you're like me, sometimes I hop in the truck to take it from my garage to park up at the house to wash it or the shop to work on it, or even hooking up a trailer

I'm only going a short distance so the seatbelt chime gets really annoying.

Oh here we go again...not to be an ***...but that's a bit obvious. When I'm out at the farm and tooling around doing this and that (tree maintenance, etc.), I don't want to have to buckle up every 100 yards. So spare me the safety lecture.

^ I was just going to say the same! Either wear the belt or buckle it behind you.

My girlfriend's '01 Taurus has the door alarm that wont stop. We would drive a few miles to the turkey barns to walk through them and got tired of hearing it. So, just went to the junkyard and cut a seat belt buckle. I just click it in when not going far.
