Hey stunna55, as a nurse the best advice I can give you is simple... Fasten your seat belt and the alarm will disappear!! The small percentage of time that you may spend driving on the beach does not warrant disabling this safety feature for the majority of your driving experience. There are too many people out there that will never be able to drive again for failure to fasten their belt. Not to mention warranty and resale issues.

Please DON'T!

While I was reading the manual my eyes cought this:

Note:
The following steps must occur within the first 60 seconds of the ignition switch being turned to the ON or START position. DaimlerChrysler does not recommend deactivating the Enhanced Warning System (Belt Alert).
1.Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and buckle the driver's seat belt.
2.Start the engine & wait for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.
3.Within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle, unbuckle & then re-buckle the driver's belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with the seat belt buckled.

Note:
Watch for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn on while unbuckling and off while re-buckling the seat belt. It may be necessary to retract the seat belt.
4. Turn off the engine. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.

The Enhanced Warning System (Belt Alert) can be reactivated by repeating this procedure.

Note:
Although the Enhanced Warning System (Belt Alert) has been deactivated, the Seat Belt Warning Light will continue to illuminate while the driver's seat belt remains unbuckled.

Disclamer:-
This is as per the manual & I shall not hold any responsiblities as to what will be the consequences of this post & I shall not be held responsible coz I am known as the Mad Man who drives 250 Km/h with out a seat belt.(By the way I cannot be sued coz I am not in the U.S. LOL:D )

Any way to disable the seatbelt chime?

So annoying...It's helped me to be more safe about wearing it, but is there any way to disable that alarm?

From the service manual:

Enhanced Seatbelt Reminder Programming

The seatbelt indicator also includes a programmable enhanced seatbelt reminder or “beltminder” feature that is enabled when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. This beltminder feature provides extended and modified visual seatbelt indicator and audible chime warning responses to an unbuckled driver side front seat belt. The beltminder
feature may be disabled or enabled by the customer using the programming sequence that follows, or by the dealer using a diagnostic scan tool. The following sequence of events must occur within sixty (60) seconds of the ignition switch being placed in the On position in order for the programming to be completed successfully.

1. With the ignition switch in any position except On or Start, buckle the driver side front seat belt.

2. Turn the ignition switch to the On position and wait for the seatbelt indicator reminder function to conclude (about six seconds).

3. Unbuckle and buckle the driver side front seat belt three or more times, ending with the belt buckled.

4. Turn the ignition switch to any position except On or Start to toggle the beltminder feature from its current setting (from active to inactive, or from inactive to active). A single chime tone will provide an audible confirmation that the programming sequence has been successfully completed.

(Thanks to shane for the original post. Note that the red seat-belt reminder icon will continue to appear in the instrument cluster even if the chime is disabled.)

Not to sound like a mother hen, but I've been dealing with the aftermath of auto accidents for longer than I like to admit.

Silence the seat belt chime by properly using the seat belt.

Every time.

Please.

Not sure if it really matters, but the manual does list the same sequence for doing this. One thing not mentioned here but is stated in the manual is that you must unbuckle and re-buckle the belt at least three times within ten seconds.

Now, I have not played with it to find if the ten seconds actually is crucial...but, that's what the owners manual says. Look in the index under 'seatbelts'.

This was one of the first changes I made to the default setup of the car the night I took delivery! :D

When I'm on the public road, I always wear my seatbelt. In fact I wish that they would install 6-point belts instead of the 3-point lap and shoulder belts. That said, I live in a rural area where I have a couple of miles of private road on the property and drive to get the mail and newspapers. I do not need belts on for those excursions and the chimes are annoying. So thanks for the instruction on silencing them. Your approach is much more professional than mine :smashfrea

Here's the quote from Rogue that a forum search for "disable seatbelt" brought up (3 threads):

"From the service manual:

I long ago verified that the above procedure works as advertised. :)
