    The poor bastard who has to drag your lifeless shattered body from the wreck and collect the remnants of your small brain that have been smeared across the windscreen probably will give a rats arse!

    Oh and your family too!

    I know this thread is a bit old now. But for those still looking to stop the seat belt chime the easy way.

    Simply unplug the connecter at the rear of the drivers seat (underneath of course). If you raise your seat and access the rear under part of the seat you will see a white plug/connector with yellow tape on it. The plug has 2 wires (red and black). Simply unplug this and it will stop the seat belt chime.

    This plug is not connected to the side air-bag in the seat. all air-bag connectors are Yellow for that reason. The side air-bag connector is towards the front of the seat (driver and passenger) on the outer edge tucked away behind the side plastic cover.

    Cheers,
    Phil

    I've just re-read this thread. The only thing I would want to modify is the start up beeps, if you start your car without the seatbelt in. Nothing else. Keep the warnings active if the car is moving.... I just dont want those annoying beeps on starting the car.

    I know you can get around it by putting in your seatbelt first, then start the car. When I do that, the eery silence is awkward! So used to the bloody beeps being so loud that they have now started to distort the speaker they come out of!

    Fark - jus the start up beeps, Holden! At least give us the option for that! Putting on my seatbelt isnt the first thing I naturally do when getting in the car! But its always on before I drive the car!

    By disconnecting the plug I mentioned it will only stop the ding,ding,ding,ding for the seat belt when you dont connect it before starting the car.

    It does not disable any other warnings dings!!! for faults etc. Ray if your not to sure which one it is, more than happy for you to drop over and I can help you out if you like? But it is pretty easy...

    Cheers

    wheres the speaker for the Ves? it doesnt go through the sound systems does it? the seatbelt alarm isnt too bad, only sometimes enoying, but the start up chimes do my head in many of times.

    even my 1 year old girl thinks the beeps are annoying. She was just learning to talk when i bought the car, one day i told her we were going out in daddy's car and she says... "Daddy's car says beep beep beep". What could i say, I just agreed.

    How To Disable VE Seatbelt Alarm (or VE startup chime)

    The chime speaker in behind the dash (instrument cluster).

    I am only refering to the VE model. I am not sure on previous models.

    The start up chimes are caused by the seatbelt not clipped in. If you put your seatbelt on before starting the car it wont chime (unless you have some other feature).

    Just as a heads up for those wanting to disable the startup chime (due to your seatbelt no plugged in) If you disconnect the plug as I explained earlier, it will also disable the seatbelt indicator on the dash which starts to flash after a couple of minutes if you don't have your belt on.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Yes what he is saying is correct, i have disabled mine. All you have to do is undo the little conection under the seat it is the one wrapped up in yellow tape. takes 2 seconds.

    I have a 2007 VE V Calais and cannot identify what connector to unplug. My drivers seat has a few electric motors and memory storage controller unit.

    I "REALLY" dislike all the beeping.. makes me feel like an idiot, as though I need to be constantly reminded. Is there also a way to disable the beep every time I change the transmission from drive to reverse etc ?

    It's the white connector at the furtherest point under the drivers seat. It will/may have yellow tape around it. You can trace the wires (2 black wires) from the left side of the plug going to the seatbelt clip next to the centre console. All airbag (SRS) deployment wiring is colour coded with yellow plugs etc.

    I'll try and take a photo of it over the weekend so you can see it.

    I found it thanks.. more obvious then I thought... the yellow tape is the giveaway :) I've just upgraded from a 1990 VQ statesman to a 2007 VE Calais. I had done heaps of electrical mods on the statesman.. now just done my first on my Calais !

    This was on my 08 VE SSV Wagon. The yellow tape is located in the middle of the seat on the rearmost bar so if you get in the back, push drivers seat fully forward and look up, you will see the yellow tape right in front of you. You don't need undo the tape, just push down on a white tab at the top of the plug and pull the red/black wires to the left and it will easily come out.

    Good luck.
