Look here for dinger removal

Just removed my dinger for good I know everybody is annoyed with it. Heres how to do it, remove the radio and disconnect. Remove the headlight switch and disconnect. Then remomove the front facia around the gages the whole piece, it has to small screws in the top of the radio hole. then remove the gage cluster and unplug the 3 connectors then take a small screwdriver and find the round dinger it is black and about the size of a quarter, take the small flat head screwdriver and pop it off of the chip board and there you have it no more dinger and everything works fine. Just assemble back like it came apart. I know it aggrivates the hell out of me but not anymore. Just thought this would be helpful to some.

This removes the whole dinging thing. On another site they claim if in a wreck and insurance gets a hold of this it could be bad, I live in the country so that stuff doesn't apply to me. This removes it completly just like I have on the other 6 vehicles I've owned. You don't have to trace wires and hope you don't cut the wrong one; just remove the dinger and be done with it. Also with the seatbelt ding thing the owners manual tell you how to disarm that and the automatic door locks, it you don't want to go this route.

You can remove the seat belt ding electronically.... (at least I did on my 03 and 05 Exs ) but still want the "you left your keys in it don't lock it doofus, dinger"

I removed the seatbelt dinger but that wasn't enough for me, I did this on my personal truck and the one that really bothers me is the trucks at work, in order to leave the radios on we have to leave the key and back, that's aggravating, dinger all the time or flip it forward ect. So this was a backyard fix and it is permanant and will work great for my application. Maybe some city guys will have to think twice or something according to someone else incase a lawyer gets involved in a wreck, I don't know just trying to help out.

I wonder if it is located in the same place on my '07. I've got auto headlights and keyless entry so I really don't need a dinger at all.

How do I electronically disable the seatbelt warning?

For the seatbelt warning I'd just use the owners manual it should tell you how to disable it. I just wanted no dinger at all no matter what, but you should be able to just undo the seatbelts by the owners manual

I think you can just unplug the seat belt warning. There are 2 plugs under the seat. Not sure which one the seat belt is.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.
