My friend has a new F150 that we use to haul his runabout. If you're in the seat for more than 10 seconds the seat belt reminder goes off if you don't buckle up. Then it beeps again about every minute. It's a real pain in the ass when we're loading/unloading the boat or just drive to/from the campground. How do I turn this off? Wires to cut near the seat belt?

Owners manual, under seat belt chime................................................

I could go into the CVPI version, but it involves turning the key, latching and unlatching the seat belt, turining on and off the headlights, latching and unlatching the belt some more............. you just wouldn't believe me.

My mom's TrailBlazer does that too. I'd Consult a shop manual before cutting wires and pulling fuses.

Just push the button where you clip it together. Works in a superduty.

Wear the belt, if u dont and U get in a good wreck U may not be around after it. It is the law here to wear them. Find a old latch and stick it in the hole.

Don't cut wires, they are tied to the air bags. On the new crown vic's if you cut the wire the air bag will not deploy. In the 2004 and 2005 crown vic's the way to turn it off is in the owners manual. A quick summery....lights off, all belts undone, parking brake on, advance ignition to active, but do not start. Wait 1-2 minutes until seatbealt guy goes off, buckle and un-buckle drivers belt 9 times (within 1 minute), leaving belt undone. The airbag light should gone on, when it turns off buckle and unbuckle , it should then flash. The "dinger" should now be off, at leat the drivers side until you disconnect the battery and then it re-sets. Hope this helps, but check manual. But please wear belt. However, I disconnected mine so I could leave car running with AC on and load and unload stuff or cool car off without that thing going off.

We wear belts out on the road, but for low speed stuff like launching the boat or driving around the campsite it's not necessary. The beeping is so F'n annoying.

Those Fords have loud dingers. Pissed me off while I worked for Ford.

The best and easist answer is Duct Tape. Find the little speaker under the dash where the bitchinthebox beeps from, and duct tape over the hole. It dosen't eliminate the beep, but it quiets it way down, this is my personal preference.

Or you could sell you Ford, and buy a Dodge...

If you cut anything do it with a tinfoil hat on. The people will take you away....

Can you plug in the seat belt before you get in the truck? Meaning, it'll be strapped in and you sit on top of the seat belt?

This is the method in the service manual.


Safety Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating

Preparation

NOTE: The driver and the front passenger beltminder are deactivated/activated independently. When deactivating/activating one seating position, do not buckle the other position as this will terminate the process.

Set the parking brake.
Place the transmission in PARK.
Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
Close all the vehicle doors.
Unbuckle the driver and passenger safety belts.
Deactivating/Activating

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)
Wait until the safety belt warning indicator turns off (approximately 1 minute).
NOTE: Step 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off or the procedure must be repeated.

For the seating position being disabled, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt unbuckled.
NOTE: After Step 3, the safety belt warning indicator lamp turns on for 3 seconds.

Within 10 seconds of the safety belt warning indicator turning on, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
The beltminder activation or deactivation is confirmed by the following sequences:
If the beltminder is enabled, this procedure disables the beltminder for that specific seating position. The safety belt warning indicator lamp flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds to confirm that the deactivation procedure was successful.
If the beltminder is disabled, this procedure enables the beltminder for the specific seating position. The safety belt warning indicator lamp flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds followed by a second series of 4 flashes per second for 3 seconds to confirm that the activation procedure was successful.
After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.

I think you should leave it. You put yourself at risk when you dont wear your safety harness. Also, its the law. Click it or ticket buckaroo.

Dont forget to brush your teef before bed either.

I know. I dont agree with seatbelt laws. Let people make their own decisions.

I think it is about the same, but here it is.


Preparation

Before deactivating/activating the belt minder, set the parking brake.
Place the gearshift in the P (Park) position.
Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
Close all the vehicle doors.
Unbuckle the driver safety belt
Place the parklamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position.

Deactivating/Activating

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)
Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately 1 minute).
NOTE: Step 3 must be completed within 60 seconds after the safety belt warning lamp turns off.

Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt unbuckled.
After step 3 is complete, the safety belt warning lamp will be turned on for 3 seconds.
If step 4 does not occur within 10 seconds at the end of step 3, the beltminder will automatically exit programming made without changing its enable status.
Within 10 seconds of the lamp turning on, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
This will disable the beltminder feature if it is currently enabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning lamp will flash 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
This will enable the beltminder feature if it is currently disabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning lamp will flash 4 times per second for 3 seconds.

They apparently "fixed" that my 2002 will let me just push the button in and it shuts up, but I have heard that the newer models will not, the Company told me it was "unsafe" to be able to shut it off.


And that is reason number one I am not buying a Ford again, at least not a new one
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 5:19:30 PM EDT
damn it every thing went the way it was supposed to till after the buckling 9 times part, i never got the last flash of the dofus with his seast belt on. i think i may use a hammer next.

stupid part of the whole thing i sometimes buckle the belt and just sit over or on top of it. so because of this reatrded dinger i actually wear the belt kless than i do in my personal vehicle.

Hell, I would just cut the wires on the beeper.

That way you still have the airbags and you're not getting annoyed.

Or you could do the procedeure above.

Things were nice when you could just unhook whatever you did not want. Hell, now everything is integrated into just a few "multi-function control modules", and how ever many that are there "talk" to each other and share info. Take out one, take out the whole car. Makes things "simpler" I guess.
Link Posted: 9/16/2005 10:53:50 PM EDT
The owners manual method worked on my 2002 Supercrew. If it doesnt work for you try latching the center belt into your clip. That has worked for me. I DONT agree with seatbelt laws. It should be a matter of personel choice.
Link Posted: 9/19/2005 3:57:12 AM EDT
Go to your dealer and ask for a seatbelt extender. They should give it to you for free. I did that in my 2002 Dodge truck and a 2002 Merc Sable. Just clip the extension into the buckle and the car/ computer will think the seat belt is connected. You can then just connect your eat belt to the extender if you want to wear your belt.
