    Is there a way to do that in a new ram? I always wear my belt while driving but will take it off when in a gravel yard or off road or while plowing a lot. Its super annoying.

    It's in the owners book on how to do it.

    I used to take my seat belt off too when plowing, then I smacked my noggin on the ceiling and decided it'd be better to wear it.

    It's there for a reason, wear it then it won't chime.

    Tie it around your neck ...that way you'll drive like you don't need it.

    I've got a '13, and on page 64 of my owner's manual it states that the chime must be disabled by a dealer.

    Check under the seats and unplug any plugs you see to see if that stops the chiming. It was that simple on my 2006 F350. I keep my seat belt off when plowing because it is annoying. Put it on when driving around though.

    Stop at junk yard and the piece that slides into buckle

    On a Ford, its some goofy sequence to disable it. It's like turn key on without starting 5 times, click belt in 4 times then.....stupid

    Should be in the owner's manual as GV said. I shut mine off.

    Really has nothing to do with wearing it while plowing for me. My shop is a couple hundred feet from my house. Moving it around the yard, etc, I do not need to be reminded to put my seat belt on.

    google says:



    RAM Seat Belt Alert

    The Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) can be enabled or disabled by your authorized dealer or by following these steps:

    NOTE: The following steps must occur within the first 60 seconds of the ignition switch being turned to the ON or START position. The manufacturer does not recommend deactivating the Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert).

    1. With all doors closed and the ignition switch in any position except On or Start, buckle the driver’s seat belt.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and wait for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.

    3. Within 60 seconds of turning the ignition switch to the ON position, unbuckle and then re-buckle the driver’s seat belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with the seat belt buckled.

    4. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming. The Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) can be reactivated by repeating this procedure.

    NOTE: Although the Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) has been deactivated, the Seat Belt Warning Light will continue to illuminate while the driver’s seat belt remains unbuckled.

    Hmmm, mine doesn't give those instructions. I'm going to have to try it. Don't know if it will work on my model year though (a '13). And what is the "Lock position" on the ignition???

    Its the position where the key is in the neutral spot when you first put it in

    Stupid me, I thought that was the off position.

    Good deal, don't forget to buckle up

    PS, trip edge saves you from hitting the steering wheel..
