    How to disable the seat belt chime

    I am not advocating not wearing your seat belt. I learned this buried in another thread but thought there would be enough interest to justify it's own thread. I've used it successfully on a 2010 Range Rover supercharged but I believe it works for all late model Mark III Range Rovers, after 2006, which did not have a seat belt chime. This trick disables both the driver and passengers seat belt warning chime, but not the dash warning light. I have heard it is reversible using the same trick but I haven't confirmed that and don't intend to.

    1. Turn on ignition switch, IE in my case, push the on button, but don't start the car.
    2. quickly fasten and unfasten the driver seat belt 10 times in succession.

    Enjoy the silence. Oh and wear your seat belt when appropriate.

    So does mine. I just meant the light comes on for a brief time even without the chime.

    Re: How to disable the seat belt chime

    Thank you for this information. Just to clarify, your post says [I assume w/r/t the 2010 Range Rover] "... push the on button, but don't start the car." Does this mean that you do not have the wireless key fob in the car when you push the starter button or is there another way to do this without starting the car that I do not understand?

    Thanks again and best regards.

    Push the button with the fob in the car but don't step on the brake so the car doesn't start. That turns on the electronics. Then do the buckle in out thing.

    Perfect! Thanks so much. I wear the belt but dislike the incessant chiming when I take it off to park or the like.

    Best regards,

    Re: How to disable the seat belt chime

    Awesome thanks OP.... One question though. I'm assuming the the same sequence of steps will RE-enable the feature yes? Has anyone tested this?

    Yes and Yes
    Common sense is not a gift, it is a punishment.
    Because you have to deal with everyone who doesn’t have it.

    Re: How to disable the seat belt chime

    Worked like a charm.. And here I came looking for a way to do it via the IIDTool lol.

    FYI... On my 2010 S/C the Seat belt warning sign on the dash turned off after 30 secs going over 30Kph and the annoying chime never came on at all. WOOHOO!!!!!
