    Default Seat Belt Alarm........How can I disconnect on driver side of 2008 Tundra

    This is a work truck, I need to be able to get in and out over and over without worrying about this alarm ringing in my ear. I unplugged a couple of connectors under the seat, but it turns on the airbag light also. I don't want to disable the airbag system, just the belt alarm.

    Thanks

    Go to a junkyard, cut the metal part off of a seatbelt, plug it into the receptacle on your truck and voila. No seatbelt alarm.

    I forget if I read this on this forum or another, but someone suggested taking a piece of plastic, tracing the belt buckle on it and cutting it out with a dremel tool, then plugging that into the fixed portion of the seat belt buckle.

    I really don't understand why any dealership would think it is the car manufacturer's duty to make you wear a seat belt. There is nothing illegal about disarming the chime. On a side note, I hope the guy that designed that chime, dies a very slow and painful death. I hate that thing!

    Took 2 different dealership visits but the second dealership did it within 2 minutes for me. They also eliminated the factory alarm beep and made all doors unlock with one button press.

    i would NOT want the airbag to go off and not be in the seatbelt. the seatbelt makes sure you are exactly where you need to be to not be hurt worse by the bag and to make sure the bag actually protects you.

    Really, how did they do that because I'm going to ask my dealer to do that. ?

    They do it with the techstream computer. I also did the same thing. The only problem is finding a dealer that will shut off the chime. You are not shutting off your airbags, simply a noise reminding you your seatbelt is on. Some dealers will not do it.
    You can buy a cheap version of the techstream and do it yourself too.

    Exactly! Are those that are disabling the alarm not wearing set belts at all or just don't get them on before the annoying alarm goes off?
