when it starts "dinging" just push the seat belt release once and it will stop for the rest of the time your driving. but only push it when it starts.

and besides you should be wearing your seat belt.

The owners manual for my truck tells you how to disable the light on the cluster and the beeping. But seriously man wear the damn thing, it's not that uncomfortable.

Guys...I'm pretty sure he's smart enough to drive on the road with a seat belt. I'll grab my manual and post the info up...including the disclaimer!

Yet another example why it would be nice to have it off. Maybe instead of criticizing you should figure out why I want it off then talk!!!!!

OK, heres how to do turn off the seatbelt reminder: (it seems like kind of strange procedure, I havent done it myself)

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (or ON) position. DO NOT START
THE ENGINE.

2. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off (Approximately 1
minute).
Step 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt
warning light turns off.

3. For the seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt nine times, ending in the unbuckled state.
Step 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt
warning light turns off.
After Step 3, the safety belt warning light will be turned on for three
seconds.

4. Within approximately seven seconds of the light turning off, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt.

This will disable the Belt-Minder Feature for that seating position if it
is currently enabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning light will
flash four times per second for three seconds.

This will also ENABLE the Belt-Minder feature for that seating position if it
is currently disabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning light will
flash four times per second for three seconds, followed by three
seconds with the light off, then followed by the safety belt warning
light flashing four times per second for three seconds again.

-the parklamps/headlamps arein the OFF position (If vehicle is equipped with Autolamps, this will not affect the procedure)

! ! ! To reduce the risk of injury, do not deactivate/activate the Belt Minder feature while driving the vehicle. ! ! !

1. Turn theifnition switch to the RUN (or ON) position. (DO NOT START THE ENGINE)

2. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off. (Approximately 1-2 minutes)
-Steps 3.5 must be completed within 60 seconds or the procedure will have to be repeted.
