Is there a way to allow 10 Km. safety margin above the speed limit to allow the alarming feature? Traffic is always moving a little faster than the limit.

Where is the fuse located that activates the seatbelt alarm for my 2008 mercury mariner.

There is not a single fuse just for the seat belt alarm .
The instrument cluster provides the warning chime function. The instrument cluster uses various inputs to determine when to sound the warning chime. The warning chime sounds if:
  • the headlamps are left on with the ignition switch in the OFF position and the driver door is ajar.
  • the key is in the ignition with the ignition switch in the OFF position and the driver door is ajar.
  • the transaxle is not in the PARK (P) position and the driver door is ajar.
  • a door is ajar while the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • the safety belts are not fastened and the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • the turn signal is on for more than 3.2 km (2 miles).
  • the parking brake is engaged and the vehicle is moving more than 5 km/h (3 mph).
  • the ignition switch is in the RUN position and a secondary air bag warning chime request is received from the restraints control module (RCM).
  • the ignition switch is in the ON position with the transaxle in the PARK (P) position and the driver door is ajar (Hybrid).
An audible signal is provided to indicate when the turn or hazard signal is on.

Safety Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating
  1. Apply the parking brake before deactivating/activating the belt minder.
  1. Place the gear selector lever in PARK or NEUTRAL (manual transaxle).
  1. Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
  1. Close all the vehicle doors.
  1. Unbuckle the driver safety belt.
  1. Place the parking lamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position.

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)
  1. Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately 1 to 2 minutes).
  1. NOTE: Steps 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off. For seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt in the unbuckled state. After this step, the air bar warning indicator illuminates for 3 seconds.
  1. Within 10 seconds after the air bar warning indicator turns off, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
    • This disables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently enabled. As confirmation, the air bar warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
    • This enables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently disabled. As confirmation, the air bag warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds followed by another flash sequence of 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
  1. After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.

When accessing a highway from a frontage road access should you begin accelerating as you approach the highway or wait until you are on the highway to incresse speed

Accelerate while on the "on ramp" until you reach the speed limit + posted on the highway... this way when you reach the highway you will be going the same speed(or close) as the other vehicles can blend in easily.. and NOT cause an accident by going too slow!! On the way down the "on ramp".. start looking at the traffic coming on the highway to find an opening to ease into safely. Use your mirrors and BLINKER... (its easier to slow down a little than speed up)

What is the o/d button on top of automatic gear stick for please

Over Drive..... Generally speaking, overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission. Overdrive allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm for a given road speed. This allows the vehicle to achieve better fuel efficiency, and often quieter operation on the highway. When it is switched on, an automatic transmission can shift into overdrive mode after a certain speed is reached (usually 70+ km/h [43+ mph] depending on the load). When it is off, the automatic transmission shifting is limited to the lower gears. For an automatic transmission, it is almost always best to select overdrive and allow the transmission to control engagement of the overdrive. (It may be necessary to switch it off if the vehicle is being operated in a mountainous area or when towing a trailer.) With a manual transmission, overdrive should usually be selected when the average speed is above 70 km/h (approx. 43 mph).

There is a button on the dashboard of my 1999 Rav 4 "EGT". What is it and how is this feature used?

The ECT button (which stands for "Electronically Controlled Transmission")
changes the shift points for the automatic transmission. When engaged,
the transmission shifts later, allowing the engine to get to a higher
power level and accelerate faster. Gas mileage is usually reduced in
this mode. Use it when you need to get up to speed faster; for example,
to merge into fast moving traffic. The normal position for this switch
is OFF.

Try a little light oil on the printer shaft. WD40 works well.
