What I hate the most is that I like to start the car THEN put my seatbelt on, but NNOOOOO...little Escape dosen't like that
I like the beep for the lights though....

Re: Stopping the darn key reminder chime...?

Well fellas youll be please to know i have found the solution, havnt had it done yet, plan to early next week!!

I talked to the ford dealer who did it for my fellow workers and he said to get your dealer/mechanic, have a look at the ignition lock, the wire going into pin number 5, should be pink and black, cut it, bend back and tape. The only thing it it imobolises is the key chime!!! lights doors, others still work!

Re: Stopping the darn key reminder chime...?

Absolutey, in the owners manual. If anyone is too lazy to go look it up, here it is:

Preparation
Before deactivating/activating the belt minder, set the parking brake.
Place the gearshift in P (PARK) (automatic transmission) or the NEUTRAL position (manual transmission).
Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
Close all the vehicle doors.
Unbuckle the driver safety belt.
Place the parking lamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position. (If the vehicle is equipped with autolamps, the autolamps must be disabled first.)
Deactivating/Activating
Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)
Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off. (approximately one to two minutes)
NOTE: Steps 3 through 5 must be completed within 60 seconds or the procedure must be repeated.

Completely pull and retract the safety belt three times, ending with the safety belt retracted.
Turn the parklamps/headlamps on then off.
Completely pull and retract the safety belt three times ending with the safety belt retracted. After this step the safety belt warning lamp will be illuminated for three seconds.
Within seven seconds of the safety belt warning lamp turning off, completely pull and retract the safety belt. This will enable the belt minder if disabled or disable the belt minder if enabled.
The following sequence of events confirm the belt minder is enabled:
• flashing of the safety belt warning belt lamp four times per second for three seconds
• three seconds with the safety belt lamp off
• flashing the safety belt lamp four times per second for three seconds again
The safety belt lamp flashing four times per second for three seconds provides confirmation that the belt minder is disabled.
After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.

Thank you for sharing this info!! I cut the wire with my shaking hands.... But IT WORKS!!! I should say it doesn't works anymore The annoying chime is gone! And it is true, it disabled only the key chime! Thanks again.
