Thread: Seat Belt Warning Chime....how do I disable it?

    Dammit, this 20-click thing does not work for me. I thought it did once, but I was wrong
    Has anyone got it working on a 2013 model?

    Yes, first time, no problems.

    Open door and Insert key, do not get in the vehicle.
    Turn key to ACC power only.
    Insert the seat belt, and then remove the seat belt, 20 times, within 30 seconds.
    Turn power off, remove key, and done.


    This, by far, is my favorite free "mod" for the XV.

    Hmmm, I didn't try that part. OK, I'll give it another go...

    Soakes I see you're having trouble, I've had to disconnect my battery on about 3 different accounts because I was messing around with panels that cover airbags, and after each time I was successfully able to disable the seat belt warning on the first try, so here's my steps.

    1) get in the car, door closed or open I don't find that it matters
    2) turn the key to the notch right before ignition
    3) You'll hear the series of beeps that are standard and I usually wait for the car to beep 4-6 times, then I quickly buckle and un-buckle the seat belt exactly 20 times and end up with the seat belt un-buckled.
    - With each repetition I make sure the buckle goes all the way in before releasing and make sure its completely out when I take it out
    - I never keep the red button simply pressed so that you can slide the buckle in and out at a fast pace; make sure it clicks in then click it out
    - Keep it at a steady pace, also I sometimes catch myself counting 1 (as the buckle goes in) 2 (as the buckle goes out) etc. you should count the buckle clicking IN 20 times.

    Goodluck!

    Also, my old car would always ring at 37 F because that is the temp that roads can start to freeze. I've noticed the XV flashing its temperature gauge on the central dash unit at this temp but I swear I noticed that it rung before I did this seatbelt trick. Now whenever I see the 37 flash and hear no noise I wonder if the seatbelt trick disabled the beeping.
    Has anyone had the same observations?

    Any update on the Australian version XV? I've spent a good part of an afternoon freaking around with this and I'm pretty sure it is not possible to de-activate in the Australian version.

    I always wear my seatbelt. But, I get the friggin chime when I put a six pack on the passenger seat. I'm definitely trying the 20 click trick.
