Default 05 F Series.. Seat belt alarm removal..

Does anybody know how to stop the chime from going off? I sit in my truck at jobsites alot, and I have to stay buckled in or the damn chime goes off.

On my 04 F series, I just unplugged the quick connector going to the seatbelt itself, the newer truck doesn't have that.

Hmm, damn, at work I have the specs for the 05 F-150 cluster, which lists the interface for it. But, aas, I am not at work..

If you haven't figured it out in 2 weeks, I'll see if I can figure it out. We don't make the cluster for it, but it should be built to spec, and I remember there's a section regarding seat belt minder...

Those jackass engineers should at least make the "minder" start reminding AFTER the truck is taken out of park...

this computer doesn't have the right programs to view the prints and follow the wires, but it will be a BN/LB (brown base, light blue stripe) wire

EDIT- Actually I just looked again.... when the seat belt buckle switch is open, it reads that the belt is buckled. When it reads that the switch is closed, it reads the belt is unbuckled. So you should just be able to cut that wire and not have to worry about the module. Although I'll be the first to admit I hate wiring... so I don't know what that will do to your restraint control mod. Best way to find it might be to locate the door chim wires. The buckle switch wire should be in the same loom as the door chime (unless it is easy to spot under the seat)

Sounds dumb but if you havent checked your owners manual the try that. I had an '02 Focus and there was a procedure to shut the chime off. key on - driver unlock button - key off - etc. etc.

Well, I pulled out the connecter to the actual chime, but that is the same chime that is the lights left on chime..

Any idea what wire to cut? or can you lead me to an online schematic?

I would have figured the chime itself is located on the circuit board for the instrument cluster. Also makes the tick-tock sound for your turn signals..


Start tapping into wires, and connect/unconnect the seat belt and see what wire changes states.

We do the instrument clusters for the Explorer, Expedition, NAvigator, etc....

The chime power isr iding on a white/yellow wire.. But that is not derived directly from the seatbelt.. must be a relay I am missing... I think I might just unplug my chime, and just hope I don't leave my headlights on.



thanks guys

Hey, I need to do this to a '02 Explorer, for the same reasons as Kelly. I'm not wearing my seatbelt in a parking lot or lane closure for work....but can't stand the chime. And for some reason mine just got much louder within' the last two weeks.

I'll check my manual and see if anything is in there.

Kelly, did you ever get this to work?

I looked through the info I have here at work, which is for the 2006 Model year. For the 2006, the chime itself is located on the instrument cluster, with the belt minder info sent over HS CAN(the network)... So, I don't have the actual signal levels for the open and closed states..

magnum only does it when the vehicle is moving so why not just wear your seat belt when its moving?

According to the wiring diagram, the switch is closed when unbuckled and open when buckled. You shoud be able to unplug the switch at the buckle and that's that (it should be a two wire, flat grey plug).

I'm assuming this is F250-550?

Wiring diagram shows a seatbelt switch at C323 under the drivers seat...?
