This is in the manual of Some Ford Crown Victoria's up north here in Canada.
-Turn car keys to power up but not start the car.
-Wait till the seatbelt light goes out (about 8-10 seconds)
-Put the seat belt buckle on and off 3 times
-Turn your park lights on once
-Put your buckle on and off 7-10 times till the seatbelt light flashes rapidly
-Once the seatbelt light stops flashing
-Put the seatbelt on
-Start up your vehicle

This disables the programing on the computer on board. To turn it back on to chime. Repeat these steps.
Note this is for a Crown Victoria pre 2004. I do not know about 500's

Re: Disable Seat Belt Chime

maybe it works like how you clear those old check engine lights, with a scruedriver. ...that light never came on again!

Re: Disable Seat Belt Chime

I just picked my 500 up today. second thing I did was disable that ANNOYING Chime! The crown vic's was close.

-Turn car keys to power on but not start the car.
-Wait till the seatbelt light goes out (about 30 seconds-a minute)
-Put the seat belt buckle on and off 9 times ending with the buckle UN buckled.
-wait for the seat belt light to come on and then buckle and unbuckle one more time.
-the seatbelt light should blink a few times and you are finished!

You can do this for the driver and passenger seat but only one at a time.

Re: Disable Seat Belt Chime

WOW, there is no edit feature in this forum? (oops, I can edit this post but not my previous one?)

Anyway, I was just going to add that opinions vary on seatbelts. You should be cautious as to who you call an idiot based on your opinion.

I for one do not wear it all the time, but I do wear it most of the time. If motorcyclists (which I am one as well) can ride without a helmet, why should the government regulate people in cars with airbags galore, wear a seatbelt???

-short story. A very good friend of mine was in an accident without his seatbelt, he was thrown from the drivers seat to the passengers seat during the crash. If he had his seatbelt on he would have been secured in his seat and not have been thrown....However, the whole drivers side of the car was CRUSHED IN and he probably would be dead right now instead of carrying out his duties as a Doctor running an Emergency room. To this day, he will not wear a seatbelt...which is his decision. I guess he is an idiot?

LOL

Because the seatbelt actually properly positions you to hit the air bag in the center and when it is fully inflated, not while it is inflating. Without the seatbelt on, you can actually be thrown at the airbag at a faster rate, resulting in the airbag smacking you in the head rather than cushioning it, and hitting it off center possibly deflecting you head into the side glass or the door belt. Your friend also could have been more seriously hurt being thrown around in the car. You can edit posts, but only for a half an hour after the original post.

Re: Disable Seat Belt Chime

Does this technique work on all Fords, or just the 500?

And what makes some of you think that those of us who want to disable it don't wear our seat belts? I for one do, but when I get out of my motor home (E450 Chassis) with the engine running, the seat belt alarm keeps gonging even though the vehicle is in park. This drives my passengers crazy having to listen to that stupid thing. Don't assume the reasons for why people ask some of these questions.
