I am pulling my hair out to get rid of the stupid seatbelt chime *DING IDNG DING DING DING* every time I drive my truck 10 feet, stop to get out and do something, drive 10 more feet *DING DING DING DING*. I've called two local dealers and they both say they can't hook the truck up to a computer and remove the chime. One says its for legal reasons the other says they don't have the "software option" to do it. Meanwhile my uncle took his F-350 to the dealer to get it removed no charge no pain, and there have been lots of people online here who say they took their Tundra to the dealer to remove the annoying chime. So, if you had the dealer fix this, where in socal did you take it?

There is one in Henderson, NV that will do it on your next trip to Las Vegas.

Someone on here did a cool thing where they cut out a template of the male part that clicks into the female part. He cut it out of a dvd box. You just stick it in the female part and no more beep beep beep. I think he is one of the moderators.

Ugh I called two more dealers and they won't remove the annoying chime either.

You know, I'm surprised Toyota hasn't come up with better safety features than stupid electronic buzzers. Each Tundra should come with a monkey in the passenger seat to give you a wet willy when you're not paying attention to the road. Or how about an orangutang that plays eyes-ees-closees at red lights and screams in your ear when the light turns green.

Our country and the car industry is in a sad place when car manufacturers feel they have to go to such great lengths as design built-in vehicle annoyatrons to remind you to use your seat belt everytime you drive over 10mph. Makes me yearn for the days when I had a mustang with very few electronic "features" and you could fix everything yourself instead of relying on a dealer with specialized computers...and this is coming from a software developer.

Ah HA! No more seatbelt nanny. The best 5 minutes I've spent all day...

A little masking tape and all is well.

Now I just have to figure out how to get the doors from locking themselves anytime I go over 15mph. Really, does Toyota think there are zombies everywhere that are going to pull you out your vehicle if the doors aren't locked?

I don't know about your truck... But I can turn that off...
Maybe part of the Limited truck

I had Glendale Toyota remove mine- they did it with the techstream tool the same time I had them turn on my alarm :)
I got to watch them do it too.
Since I bought my truck there, the first adjustment was free- I don't know what they'll charge you for it.

Here is a listing of what settings can be changed with the Techstream computer.

Thanks GWD.

Do all dealers have techstream computers? If so they must just be blowing me off.

I hate the "auto lock delay" feature too. I go and unlock my truck and then have to run back to the house to carry some stuff to put in the back seat, then by the time I get there its locked again! LOL
