Kill The Chime

This was suggested by someone in another forum and it seems like a nice fix. No wires to mess with and easy to remove when you want to use your seatbelt.

Don't get upset - if you Google "how to disable seatbelt alarm acura mdx" you will see results for every other vehicle, as well (Subaru, TL, etc.). Read them and you will see the nannies of those Forums do the same thing; everything from "just wear it" to "shoot yourself and save yourself the hassle of dying a painful death in a car accident w/o your seatbelt."

I'm with ya on wanting to disable the chime so I make short (<1 mile) trips w/o my seatbelt.

Let the name-calling begin ...

Disabling the chime is a reasonable question that thousands would love to have the answer to. The additional information regarding the wearing or not wearing it falls into the catagory of, "it's better to have people think that you are stupid than to open your mouth and prove it".
On a public forum you are open to all comments so the OP would be well advised to not to have added any comments regarding his seat belt wearing habits.

I happened to be looking at Acura parts on eBay and ran across these. It reminded me of this topic so I thought I would post it. Serves a dual purpose, it's also a bottle opener! Can't beat the price to get rid of the chime alarm if that's what you need.

That is too funny, ls!!! Ya know, I was just thinking the other day, "Gee, how can I get this bottle of beer open while I'm driving down the road without my seat belt on???" I could just pop this out, use it to open my beer (might as well open a beer or two for the kids while I'm at it) and then put this in my seat belt receiver so the chime doesn't go off.

I don't know if this works today. Years back (before I started wearing a seat belt ) I would get under the dash with the chime going, find the device that was making the noise and rip it out. I would leave them in the glove compartment for the next owner.

Best that worked for me was the ebay cure ..Got 2 of them for about $10 including postage ..Be sure you get the right ones for your brand (Acura) ..I tried to open the seat belt buckle (receiver ) with no luck ...I have done this on earlier Acuras and Pilots but the 14 seems to be glued or bonded somehow ...
