Seat Belt Alarm

In my 08 dodge ram I could disable the darn seat belt alarm, the manual actually told you how to do it. I can't seem to track down how in my 2013 300s, anyone know how to do this?

The dealer told me they wouldn't do it....


Please save the you should always use a safety built replies, I have the right to choose death if I get in a car wreck.

Dealer is the only place.

The seatbelt keeps you in the seat and by extension in control should the car go through some excessive motion, so it's not just your "rights" some of us may have an issue with; a pending accident may be recoverable if you wear your belt. You are also not turned into a flying projectile that can impact other vehicles (and cause other injuries or deaths) should you be thrown clear. It's the same with large dogs. If you don't want us to comment on your opinions, you might want to keep them to yourself and stick to technical-only questions without such a trolling statement.

BTW its not a trolling statement when its my post. You could choose not to read it and I disagree with your statement. Your probably one of those liberals who thinks gun rights should be taken away.

Next time just a simple reply when that's all I was asking for would be appreciated.

Probably the best thing that could happen to you in an accident in which you are unrestrained would be death.

Permanent disability, disfigurment, and monumental medical expenses (some of which might be supported by my insurance premiums) would be a waste.

Back on topic, disabling the seatbelt chime is not a customer selectable option unlike our Rams, hainesm.

Your 100% correct in your opinions, death would be the best outcome. However if what your speaking of does happen I'm covered. I have an extremely large life insurance policy and AD&D. I work for a living and do not sponge off our nation. Its enough to take care of my needs in the event something bad happens.

To better explain myself since obviously I need to here. I work 1.5 miles of urban road away from my place of employment. The speed limit is no more then 30 miles and hour and I actually don't break it. I spend a crap load of money on dry cleaning and I cannot stand showing up for work with a wrinkled dress shirt and tie, due to this I choose not to use my safety belt. If I go anywhere else especially the highway it goes on. I understand the importance of this belt more then probably most of you because one saved my life when I flipped over in a canal in Florida.

I've taken measures to protect my family and myself in the event my decision back fires. At the end of the day its my right and I will pay any tickets or penalties for not using the belt.

Now lets move on and I appreciate the people who replied with information.

Maybe not.
Your insurance policy may have a negligence disclaimer that voids your coverage if it is shown that you were not wearing the belt.
Check it out to be sure.

You have two options.

1. Perform the same procedure as the 1st gens, the buckle/unbuckle sequence, and the chime will go away...you will have to do this for the driver and passenger seats seperately. You will also have the warning "driver/passenger/front seat(s) belt unbuckled" on the drivers information center on the dash when the vehicle is in motion.

2. Get seatbelt extenders, they are available for purchase, or you can get them for an overweight driver/passenger for free at any dealership.

Good luck, and be safe.

Good idea, I did check it out and didn't see anything that talked about this. I had already looked into that on my AD&D policy, I do get more money if its shown to be on but I still get what I've paid for either way.

thanks
