    I'm on my phone, but if I get on later I'll link the thread. You can buy a cable and use your laptop. The dealer can do it too, as it is listed as one of a handful of "programmable features", but they might want to charge you.

    Oh wait I found a much better solution to the seat belt chime fix for ours off of the Tundra forums. You have to pull the spring out of the seatbelt assembly off the two white pieces of plastic. I'd much rather go the hard route instead of the software route because I heard if your battery ever dies the chime comes right back.

    It does but it takes about 15 seconds to do the software fix again.

    ^^^ Exactly. Also, there are a few other parameters you can change as well. Here's a review:

    There's also this warning in HUGE letters at the beginning of that thread:

    "WARNING...
    There is an issue with the passenger side airbag NOT functioning after this mod.
    Please read this entire thread before you decide to attempt this modification."

    I'll stick with the procedure that takes a couple of minutes and has zero side effects.

    Good to know man! I have yet to do this, we have had 103-110* days lately so I'm not messing with anything outside! Lol I prefer to do it on a much cooler day for sure.
