Does anyone know a quick and easyway to defeat the seat belt alarm.
My wifes FJ goes off with just a light load in the passenger seat and its
annoying.

We both wear our lap belts but the FJ's alarm is a nusciance.
I have a 07 tacoma and it never sounds off.

Thanks
Bert

seat belt alarm

I am also looking to turn off my seat belt alarm, especially when offroading or using FJ as work truck when I need to get in and out frequently and do NOT need to buckle up every time.

Roverggm says instructions to disable seat belts are in the owners manual. I cannot find them. What page pray tell? Bruce

Same here.
I never found the info either. Just been putting up with it.
My Tacoma has no alarm at all, just a indicator light on the instrument cluster
indicating when you are not buckled-up.

Seat belt chime
1. Turn the ignition switch on (without starting car)
2. Press the ODO/TRIP switch until the odometer displays "ODO"
3. Turn the ignition switch off
4. Turn the ignition switch on
5. Press ODO/TRIP switch immediately (within 6 seconds after turning the power switch ON) and hold it down for 10 seconds or more.
6. Continue holding the ODO/TRIP switch and fasten the front drivers's side seat belt.
7. Check that the odometer displays either "b-on" or "b-off" (it will be "b-on")

i went to the dealer and asked for a pair of front seat belt extensions. they are free by the way. just plug them in and wallah, no more alarm. all the do is extend the belts an extra 6 inches or so.

aquadaholic,
Your lucky... my dealership won't give me seatbelt extentions. They say that Toyota doesn't allow it they have guidelines and policies and won't get me one. My wife has MS and has a hard time doing the buckle up when she cant't see it. I just need a 6 inch extention. How do I get one? Anyone know?

Seat Belt Extentions

:confused: I have been to 2 dealerships they both tell me the same thing. May be if my wife weighed 400 lbs. but having MS doesn't fall into their criteria. Toyota Canada has guidelines and policies but who can make any sense of them. Maybe I need someone in the USA to send me one. Toyota Canada doesn't seem to want to help.

I just spoke to my parts guys (I work at a Toyota store) and they are free, you just have to call and have them order it. Guess you might have to find someone or a dealership that is willing to mail them for you.

MY FJ is a 2008. I tried the above procedure and could not get it to work. Did the above procedure work for anyone who owns a 2008?

Thanks

I had a customer call for one of the seat belt extenders. Before that I didn't know they were free. My boss told me it was because it is a safety issue. I work at a Detroit based car brand, it pays the bills. Even though it is one of the top dealers, we wouldn't ship the thing for free.
