    Hello All,
    I drive a 2008 Toyota Tacoma with NO bells and whistles. This truck is only used on a private road. I make several stops throughout my route and a seat belt is not practical nor needed. (no other vehicles...flat road...5mph...you get the picture)

    I can't stand the seat belt / door ajar alarm. The owner of the vehicle, my boss, has given me the go ahead to disarm it as he also can't stand the alarm. ( he uses it to go between work sheds )

    Anyone have an intelligent idea for a quick fix or possibly know a way to disarm the weight sensors for the seats?
    Sorry if this is a retarded question or something already covered. (tried a forum search for 'ajar')
    I appreciate the responses. Thanks again

    Don't do that. The weight sensors for the seats also correspond to the airbag sensors so they won't deploy properly if at all in the case of a crash.

    There's a mod to disarm them, but I haven't tried it yet.

    i read this on here somewhere.
    1) Turn the Car 'ON', but do not start the engine (Leave your foot off the brake). Cycle your trip reset knob until it reads ODO. Turn the ignition back off. Wait a couple of seconds.
    2) Make sure seat belt is not fastened
    3) Turn the ignition back on, do not start the car (Leave you foot off the break) As soon as you see everything light up, press and hold the trip reset knob and do a long 12 second count.
    4) Keep your finger on the trip reset knob. Fasten your seat belt, as soon as you fasten your seat belt, you should see the ODO display go from XXXX miles to "b-on". At that time take your finger off the trip reset knob and press it again. It should cycle to "b-off". You should be all set and turn the ignition off and unfasten your seat belt.
    this works for the driver's side. for the passenger do the same but have sit in the passenger seat

    It worked on my 09 to turn off that seatbelt chime anyway.

    Thanks for that. Makes sense to me. I can envision how they could correspond to the airbag. With that being said...I either suck at googling or the internet b/c I am having trouble finding a way to disarm this seat belt alarm.

    If there is no way to do it by clipping wires or w/e without compromising safety during a crash...possibly just purchase extra seat belt clips and clip them in?

    thanks again people

    Let us know how it works out. Many others have had success if you follow the steps completely.

    for the chime when you open the door, you have to cancel it at the speaker. I've seen it done while doing the LED lights swap, you need to cut a connection somewhere
