    Default How do you disable the 2007 silverado seat belt chime?

    Just purchased 2007 silverado crew cab truck for use around my farm.
    Does anyone know how to disable the seat belt reminder? I understand
    the need to encourage seat belt usage during regular driving but this
    thing is driving me nuts when I am just going a couple hundred feet
    between each of the pest stations that I am checking.

    I would rather disable it through normal means then having to fiddle
    with the wiring under the seat.

    Hi!

    > Does anyone know how to disable the seat belt reminder?


    My first suggestion would be to read the manual for your truck and see if it
    has any suggestions or procedures to follow. I'd guess that finding a
    factory provided method to turn the chime off is unlikely, but you never
    know.

    > I would rather disable it through normal means then having to fiddle

    If there is no official method, this is probably the easiest way. Anything
    else is likely to involve revising the programming of the computer that runs
    the chime. I don't think these new trucks have a dedicated chime box any
    longer...which would rule out simply cutting the power to that part alone.
    (Even on my '03 S-10, the chime box looks to be part of another unit with a
    big chunk of wiring running into it. Fortunately, it knows when to quit with
    the seatbelt reminder...about ten seconds after the key goes on, it stops.
    Only a flashing indicator light remains after that. That goes away too after
    a few minutes.)

    There won't be much fiddling involved. All you should have to do is short
    the contacts of the wiring connector under the seat and you're done.

    I can't say that I'm a big fan of these vehicles that won't rest until
    you've put the seatbelt on, or at least made the vehicle "think" that you
    did. (Yes, I do wear my seatbelt when traveling. But sometimes--when you're
    only going around a piece of private property or something--there's just no
    need to use it.)

    Dead easy. Replace the factory stereo, do not use a relocation harness or
    the GMRC(?) chime box. This will, however, get rid of all chimes. But at
    least it will not result in mangled wiring anywhere, and can be reversed any
    time you want.

    Unless there are multiple versions of the manual I don't think you are
    correct.

    I see lots of suggestions on reading the manual. Is it really there? I don't
    know.
    If I wanted to temporarily disable my chime in my vehicle (2006 Silverado),
    or any vehicle for that matter, I would just fasten the seatbelt before I
    sat down.

    Sometime when we look real hard, the simple solution is missed.

    Good luck

    Your owner's manual tells you if the seat belt wiring triggers off of an
    electrical signal or the
    absence of an electrical signal... I'd like to see a scan.

    Fasten the seatbelt BEFORE sitting down?? How does that work?
    All this will accomplish uis having a total idiot sitting on the wrong side
    of the belt.

    The original post indicated that he wanted the seatbelt warning to stop. If
    the seatbelt is connected then there is no warning. If you need it active
    again, because you are going out on the road, then you can use the seatbelt
    as it was originally intended. As far as being an idiot sitting on the wrong
    side of the belt, I wouldn't say that. It would be more like someone
    avoiding the warning. Maybe with this explanation you will know the answer
    to "How does that work?"
