    It should be in your service book. You have to buckle and unbuckle it a few times.

    Why disconnect it. If you wear your belts, it won't make a sound.
    If you're not going to wear the belts,get someone to disconnect the airbags.

    I'm not sure when they changed the dimensions of the center belt buckle, but in my 04 I can plug the middle buckle into my seatbelt and it will disable the alarm. I still wear a seat belt under normal driving, but when you in and out of the truck like moving trailers, plowing, etc it sure is nice.

    06's do the same. I also heard that older Dodges are programmed for that if they go in and get flashed. It's all because of the moron that didn't put the truck fully into park!!

    no way to kill the horn part it was a goverment mandaite because people were getting out of their trucks with it not fully in park.I forgot to tell you earlier that the instructions listed in the owner manual is not correct:
    1. The engine must be started with the seat belt buckled.
    2. Start the engine, wait for the seatbelt lamp to go out.
    3. Unbuckle and buckle the seat at least 3 times ending with the seatbelt buckled (be sure the seatbelt light cycles on/off while buckling).
    4. Turn the ignition off and chime will be heard to confirm the programming.

    The Correct procedure is:
    1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and buckle the driver's seat belt.
    2. Turn the ignition key to the run position. Do not start the engine.
    3. Wait for the seatbelt lamp to go out.
    4. Unbuckle and buckle the seat 3 times within 10 seconds ending with the seatbelt buckled (be sure the seatbelt light cycles on/off while buckling).
    5. Turn the ignition key off and a single chime will be heard to confirm the programming

    No wonder....I followed the instruction book to the letter and it didn't work..I too find the chime to be very annoying. Its kinda pain to wear a seatbelt plowing snow.

    how about the pain of getting hit with an airbag that deploys at 100+mph......without the seatbelt............

    just like I tell my kids....the right right thing is seldom the easiest option........

    It's eclipsed by the pain of cracked ribs or broken teeth from eating the steering wheel during unexpected sudden stops.

    It falls under Meyer's (John McDonald's character, not the snowplow) law of personal decisions, "the most difficult choice is most probably correct."

    I don't really jam n slam with my stuff. I just really hate wearing a seatbelt while doing a lot. Makes a pain out of turning around when backing up.

    This is my 6th year on my own and not one busted tooth or cracked rib yet....knock on wood.

    Just a "Heads UP" for guys with employees that drive there trucks. Disabling a safety device (seatbelt alarm is a safety device) on a vehicle is huge NO NO, you can plan on having your ass handed to you in court if someone gets hurt in your truck that was not wearing a seatbelt. OSHA loves fines boys, I would not recommend disabling the seat belt alarm. I hate that chime, but I prefer to keep things on the up and up so I deal with it.

    To disable the "not in park" alarm, I believe all you have to do is pull a fuse under the hood and that disables it. If I remember correctly, it is fuse #45.

    the only thing pulling the fuse does is take the power away from the horn so your horn wont work as well
