ANNOYING SEAT BELT BEEPING NOISE
 
Does anyone know how to remove the annoying seat belt beeping noise from a 13 Tacoma? Aloha!!

According to a bunch of other threads, the dealer has to do it for you on the 11-13's. Takes them 5 minutes. Page 586 of the owners manual.

YAHH that will do just fine!! Alohazz

Do you know if I need one for the passenger seat as well?

The beep is only for the driver, I believe. Never tested it though. Can't hurt to order an extra, they're cheap.

I wish this was a great solution for me. I just hate having to put the belt on for short slow distances. I try to ride daily with my belt on. So then I'd have these little metal plgus I'd have to put in take out and it'd be annoying.

I wished my cable with the Techstream software could disable a 2013, but it wont for me.

i hate having my seat belt on when driving 5 mph out at kaena point.

Yeah, on the 12-13's the dealer has to do it. However, if you ask them nicely, they will.. I had the tech out on a test drive for a cabin rattle, and while on the drive, I asked if he could turn off the chime... Picked up the truck a few hours later, and NO MORE BEEP!!

:thumbsup: I agree. Driving any other way is sheer stupidity.

Never understood people who get annoyed with that sound. Wear your seatbelt it goes away. Kind of odd, eh? Free mod.

Thankfully my 08 is easy to disable the chime. I couldn't stand that damned beep as I was moving my trailer around up and down launches. I'd rather not be strapped in when close to water.

Aloha.

Here's a similar thread about 2012 which as far as i know are the same as our 2013 models:

I still want to use my seatbelt though, so those don't work and I don't want a massive extender. I haven't gone to dealer yet since the tricks don't work on certain 2011's and all since then.

Fuh. It's sooo obnoxious and totally overkill.

Kind of out there aren't you? Where's the fun in securing yourself and not face planting into the windshield...

Just put your damn seatbelt on...You should never permit an unbelted passenger..If you are found to be at fault in an accident and they die or are injured you are going to lose EVERYTHING...house, car, work, freedom...Put your stupid seatbelt on...

I work on a construction site and constantly going from one side of the job to the other. I never wear a seat belt onsite. No need. I just got my Tacoma on Tuesday. I'll have to ask them about that.
Glad I'm not the only one.

Completely agree. I always wear mine and passengers do too. Leaving my apartment complex takes forever, I'll put it on as I go and don't want to get bugged for 1 minute like crazy. Or going to other end to get mail. Common, we don't need to be bothered.

I wear mine as I should, but my dog also sets off passenger one and I have to hear it EVERY time we go anywhere.
