Question about Car Audio & Video

When I buckle my seatbelt the chime still occurs and the seatbelt light stays on. I had my window smashed the other day and I'm wondering if a small piece of glass could be preventing the system from recognizing that the seatbelt is buckled.

Sorry about your window getting smashed!
Under the seat, there's a small wire that connects to the seat belt buckle. Check to see if this has come unplugged from the buckle.

I have a 2010 Kia Forte that, even when my seatbelt is buckled, the seatbelt chime is going off every 3-4 minutes.Is there a trick to disabling this seatbelt chime as some other cars do?


You can disconnect the chime bell itself but if there is a problem with the system & the chime is necessary it wont engage. U should have it ckd out & repaired the proper way from the professional point of view. If u cant do it yourself, take it to a shop u trust. Good luck

How do you fix the seat belt reminder light and chime


There is a contact in the buckle to the seat belt and a wire that comes from it. See if you can take the buckle apart and check the wire where it comes out of the buckle stem.

How do i disconnect seatbelt chime mitsubishi mirage


On many cars, the seat belt sensor is also used to trigger the airbag. Investigate whether this is the case on your car before doing anything drastic to your seat belt alarm.Locate the wire under the driver seat that connects to the buckle with the release button. It should be towards the rear on the right hand side, where you plug the belt into.Follow the wire to an area under the seat where you will be able to fit your hands into.Look for two wires running together. Cut through both of them and slightly separate the ends apart.Use electrical tape to cover the wire ends so they do not short out on each other or metal under the seat.Tuck the wires away from the seat brackets so they do not get tangled if you move your seat.OR>>>>

On the side of the receptacle (where you would slide the buckle into) are two non-tamper torx screws.
Remove the screws using a hollow T10 bit.Carefully remove the plastic side cover. It contains a spring loaded slide switch.Remove the small spring and slide the switch down to its lowermost position.You can double check by watching the seat belt light on the dash go out.Replace the plastic cover and screws.Store the small spring for use in the future. This way the system thinks the buckle is always in so the light and chime won't alert at all.

2005 town and country touring i want to disconnect the seatbelt warning light and chime?


1. Turn the ignition switch to the off position and buckle the seat belt
2. Turn the ignition switch to run (engine does not need to be running), wait for the seat belt light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds, unbuckle and rebuckle the drivers seat belt at least 3 times, ending with the seat belt buckled.
4. Turn the ignition key to the off position. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.

It can be reactivated by repeating these steps.

The alert will be deactivated but the warning light will continue to stay on will the belt is unfastened.

Seatbelt chime


There is a switch in the buckle that senses when it is fastened. This might be stuck or the sensor that tells if the seat is occupied is bad.

As far as I know that seat belt warning chime and light is there for your safety and protection, it should not be bypassed in any way.
There is no by pass seqwuence or code to eliminate this safety device.
Buckle up, its the law.

Warning light came on this morning, figure of a man with the seatbelt. What does this indicate?


This is the seatbelt indicator, its not seeing that your seatbelt is fastened ifthe light stays on and the chime keeps going off.

There is a switch inthe seatbelt that closes when the seatbelt is buckled, and if not, thelight stays on and the chime goes off.

There are a couple reasons thiscould happen. It could be a wiring issue going to the seatbelt buckle,or more likely the buckle itself. Your truck is pretty new, so if youare under 36,000 miles the repair would normally be covered underwarranty.

Also, I suggest check the Repair Manual for Jeep-WK-Grand-Cherokee-Section-08O-Restraints (page 473 and next, for Seat Belt)

Hope helps with this (remember rated this) Good luck.

I have a 1997 toyota corolla that one of the chimes (seat belt, key ignition or lights) just started dinging and won't stop until the car is turned off.


Get in the car, make sure your dome light is set to door-operation.
Close all the doors, does the dome light go out?
If so, it's not the door ajar chime. If not, one of your door pin switches is defective.
Buckle your seatbelt, does the seatbelt warning light on the dash go out?
If so, it's not the seatbelt alarm. If not, it's the seatbelt buckle receiver.
The light warning works with the key off, so it is not that since turning the car off would not stop it.
Last thing it could be is the ignition key alarm.
I have seen a few malfunction over the years.
