Hi Guy,

Well after yrs with my beloved Lexus is250 i now own a Limted White w/o nav :whistling: But i can always use iphone or Garmin, anyway sometimes i am not driving far or just in town and i live in a very dead area and if i don't feel like wearing my seatbelt (my choice) How do i turn off seatbelt chime? I remember in my IS there is a way of turning the start button to Acc only and not starting the car and holding trip button in and same time putting seatbelt on then the chime would cancel out. This only had to be down once and i would never hear that annoying chime. So what is the best way on this car? Also i read everyone post on DRL and shutting them off. on my Lex i had dealer shut them off. High Beams still worked cause low beam was also the high beam and they switch back and forth. Or is it better to buy the LED drls? Thanks guys and so far i am liking the looks this car gets. A little bigger then i am used to but it has a benz look from a distance.

"Dead area" or not, eschewing seatbelts is plain stupid. You are not invincible and Mr. Murphy continues to live a bold and active life. I'm a sexagenarian and frankly wouldn't have gotten this far had I adopted the practice you espouse. Wear the belts and forget about defeating the chimes.

I am a believer in seat belts too, however...

...this thread has the makings of a flame war, so I think we should all agree to disagree and not try to convince each other the pros/cons and stick to the discussion of if there is a way to defeat the seat belt chime.

I've been on this board since early spring and I havent once seen a discussion about whether this is possible. Most likely there isnt and if there is a way, it involves manually defeating it.

i would have to agree. the seatbelt argument is a contested one. no need to go back and forth here.

i also agree that i didn't see anything about disabling the chime in the manual. you may be able to find some random button press that's built into the cars computer, but i highly doubt that it exists. I mean, many states have the clickit/ticket program and car manufacturers probably just say leave it and be done with it.

I have to say that this is the most quiet chime for not having the seat belt on .......

So if you don't want to wear it, it can't possibly be bothering you.

I wear mine even though I hate them with a passion but I wonder if you could click it and then twist over the back of the seat and leave it alone........

Maybe I'm lucky. My SE doesn't have the seat belt chime, but **** I wear the seat belts anyway.

No way to disable either seatbelt chime or DRLs. And no way to remove the pesky airbag stickers either. The bright side is the chime is not constant, like on other cars. And I believe it stops after a few times.

As a side note, if you ride a motorcycle (I do), you not only have no seatbelt, but you're the bumper, fender, door, intrusion bar, etc. However, the real important reason to wear your seatbelt on modern cars is if you don't, you can actually be killed by the airbags that are supposed to protect you, so you might be worse off without a seatbelt on a car than on a motorcycle. So WEAR YOUR SEATBELT folks :thumbsup: .

VERY easy way to turn off seatbelt chime.
It involves a little device that happens to look exactly like the "key" of a seat belt.
So as not to rile up any of the proselytizers on this thread, PM me for info on where to buy one.
Or easily make one yourself.

Oh....... btw, I use mine ONLY for the passenger seat when I'm carrying a heavy package there.

First of all...congrats on your new Sonata and :00000732:

Even if we knew how to do it, you have to understand the legal implication of providing a step-by-step to defeat a federally-mandated safety device. If, for some reason, you were injured or killed in an accident and some ambulance chaser happened to find this thread, Hyundai-Forums could very well be held liable for whatever happened to you. Sad but that's the world we live in right now....I hope you understand.

I had a feeling this would go downhill eventually.
