    Two questions!

    1) What is RSCA and why would I turn it off?

    2) Where the #&$^ing heck is the seatbelt chime speaker so I can rip it out?

    Thanks!

    asuming you dont have an owners manual... rsca = rollover side curtain airbags. you would turn them off when offroading and on steep sideways inclines because i believe they have sensors that will set them off beyond a certain angle that is either close-to or at the tip-over point of your truck.

    the seatbelt chime speakers is a part of the dash, there is a procedure to disable it if you do some searching on this site

    Thanks everyone! The truck didn't come with a manual so I had no idea about the RSCA.

    Thank goodness you can turn off the seatbelt chime. Driving me batty, I was about to start shooting :D

    i agree, but I just tell people to put it on. sometimes I dont wear mine I admit, and that is my bust, but when my son is with me and I dont put it on, he always grabs it and says Dad, seatbelt! I love him!!!
