It's there for your safety.


Don't do that!! There is no way to disable it. It is there to ensure that you wear your seat belt. Wear your seat belt. It might just save your life...


These are both bougus answers. First, of course there's a way to disable it. It's an electronic part, not God. Second, a "noise" provides no safety, only the seat belt that it's chiming about provides the safety. I've been driving for 35 years and don't need a reminder beep, maybe Adam doesn't either. And if he owns a Kia, his seatbelt reminder noise probably malfunctions, as does mine. Then, the noise is a distraction and becomes a safety hazard, not a safety devise. If you don't known the answer to the question, just say so, rather than sermonizing.
