    Mud. Lots of it.
    On my '09 Tacoma, I took apart the seatbelt clicker and removed the thingy that activates the chime. Now I notice that my airbag indicator on the dash stays at 'off' even if there's someone in shotgun (and it's set at auto). For that matter, I wonder if my own (drivers) airbag will even work, since I did it to my seatbelt as well.

    I disconnected these things because I just use my truck for construction site supervision. To put on my seatbelt to drive halfway down the block is annoying. But even that I could handle... What's really annoying is that if I pick up a case of beer on the way home, putting it on my passenger seat activates the seatbelt chime. Ditto for my dog. So I disconnected it. But I still want any human passenger to be protected by the airbag. Is it possible, or do I have to reconnect that fucking sensor that activates the chime?

    Search some more. Disabling the seatbelt chime can be done via a keyfob/odo/hold-your-lips-right thing.

    That sucks. I can handle putting my seatbelt on, but if I want my passengers protected, I have to connect the seatbelt anytime I have something over 15lbs on my seat? Weak.

    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.

    I copied this from another post. I have completed this mod and it works perfectly. Now all you will have to worry about is the flashing light.

    no dude. You dont have to. There is a code to turn the seat belt beeps off.
    It will beep 5 times intially when you turn on the ignition, but never after that. This is how you do it.
    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

    Is there a code to get the truck to stop chiming when the door is open and the keys are in the ignition?
