Hi,

can anyone tell me how to deactivate the warning alarm sound when the driver's seat belt is not plugged in? In other cars there often seems to be a magic sequence of events to follow like buckling and unbuckling 20 times in a minute or something. Is there any system such as this, or do I have to resort to physical means? Thanks.

What car do you drive?

In the Megane there is a microswitch within the seat belt buckle - just bend the arm too far away so that it doesn't make contact & the buzzer will never sound again. There is a separate switch for the indicator light so you'll still get that.

The buzzer is a safety feature - it reminds you you haven't fastened your seatbelt. I know it can be annoying if you are just driving car of the drive etc but it is there for a reason.

I've just bought a 6 month old Scenic. I posted in the Scenic forum and didn't think to mention the make of car, sorry. I was thinking that if I tampered with some detection device then it might end up deactivating the airbag if the seatbelt was in use perhaps.

The buzzer isn't a safety feature, putting the seatbelt on is a safety feature. The buzzer is just an annoyance.

I take it you don't want to wear the seatbelt, but can't think of any reason why would you not want to wear your seatbelt ?

The easiest way to quieten the thing down is to wear it :rolleyes:

Yes I agree with Gonescenile, Why would you not wear a seatbelt, thus putting yourself and other roadusers at risk ?

Just wondered why you would want to
I've managed to drive 20 years without failing to notice whether I have a seat belt on or not. If a 5 year old child was driving the car then perhaps I could understand the need for it. However, I'm sure there are a million places more suitable to discuss the motives of writing "warning, may be hot" on a cup of coffee, etc. In the meantime, if anyone knows how to disable the audible alarm, I'd be grateful to hear it.

You could visit your Renault dealer and ask them to deactivate the system, But as I am sure you are aware most none mechanical systems on Renault's are interlinked thus disabling one will disable something else, Obviously there is a reason for this.

I know very little about Renaults, this is the first one I've had. The amount of automation in the car is scary. A couple of times I've pulled the keycard out and tried to switch the engine off and it wouldn't let me. What's the point in that?

I'll give the dealer a call too. Thanks.

Seatbelt alarm

Maybe Ren is pregnant and has an exemption note from his doctor. :rofl: The reason you can't stop the engine when you take the keycard out is a very obvious one - maybe you just need a bit of toime to think it out.:)

Iam not completly sure without trying again, but i think my audible alarm for the seat belt does stop after a certain time limit but the visual alarm stays on. I noticed this when i took my seat belt of whilst driving through the drive through at macdonals, (couln't get money out of me trouser pocket).

In the Scenic it just gets louder, like it's getting more annoyed with you :rolleyes:

I suppose if you're absolutely determined not to "wear" the belt, you could always run it round the back of the seat and plug it into the stalk.
I just hope I don't happen upon the accident aftermath ;)

Disabling safety device

I would like to express a personal opinion on the matter of jen wanting to disarm the seatbelt warning device. It appears he/she is determined to have his/her own way on the matter. In this situation I don't feel this forum should be used to aid a person to disable what after all is a safety device and as far as I can see he/she hasn't given what appears to be a valid reason despit being asked to do so. I for one will not be giving him'her any more of my advice - full stop.:steam:
