Seatbelt Nanny Disconnect?

I'm a new Tundra owner, loving my 2012 Double Cab Off Road after 15 years with a F250 4X4. This is a N-I-C-E truck!

I've owned the truck just two weeks, and saw a tip somewhere that I can't seem to find again. On a daily basis, one of my trips is a little 1/4 mile jaunt here on the farm to check on my 87 year-old mother. On that round trip, I rarely exceed 25 mph, and don't fasten my seat belt. The rest of the time, I'm faithful to buckle up. On the old Ford, it chimed three times and left me alone. The Tundra is a lot more insistent about wanting me to be safe! Ding... Ding... Ding... ding-ding-ding-ding-ding-ding-ding!!!

I read somewhere that the was a simple Nanny Mod to stop the seatbelt alarm. It was said there is a little hole in the seatbelt "receiver". If you put a small awl or screwdriver in it and lifted a little spring off, the were no more alarms.

I've looked twice, but don't see any such hole. Maybe it because this model year if different, but I'd like to end the chime! Any tips from you "Old Pros?"

Thanks,

Daryl

Just buckle it behind your seat. That way you don't have to kludge anything.

Dealer can turn the chime off for you using techstream.

If they refuse to do it, the chime is soldered onto the I/P cluster circuit board. It can, and has been by others, be desoldered and removed from the board.

Don't ever get in a motor vehicle and move without your seat belt on.

90 percent of all accidents occur within 2 miles of home.

So either buckle up or move.

The voices in my head don't like you.

Always wear a seatbelt...that said, as socal has already mentioned, have the dealer disable it for you using techstream. There are a couple other customizable features you can have done at the same time. These features are listed in your owners manual.

My dealer did it for no cost! Let that be your benchmark.

Thanks everyone! I'll see what my dealer has to say about it. It's good to see it's been an option for some of you.

I wear a safety belt at all the times when I'll be on the road for more than 20 seconds. Around the farm fields, though, and going from my home driveway to the next (farm) driveway, it is an inconvenience. My lab rides "shotgun" in the passenger seat, too, and seems quite disinterested in buckling up!

I appreciate the ideas, and will be checking out the possibilities.

THANKS!

Daryl

My dealership turned my passenger off but wouldn't turn off my drivers. That being said I never drive on the road without my seat belt, I do however drive from the house to the boat dock or across a field not wearing one and the dinging is annoying.

don't remember where i found it but on the bottom of the seat belt latch you unplug a connector pop off a small cover and remove a spring. the only hard part is plugging the connector back in, if you don't get it right on the passenger side the air bag won't turn on.

Daryl --

Just explain your situation just as you have described in this thread. I had a similar story as yours and by the third dealership I was finally able to find a sympathetic service writter who disabled both the driver and passenger seatbelt chimes. While you have the techstream hooked up, make sure your alarm system is activated. All Tundras come equipped with anti-theft hardware installed at the factory. All the dealer needs to do is activate it. Pretty shrewd if you ask me...

aleaddict,

Thank you. I will try that. There are only two Toyota dealers within my normal "range." Maybe one of them (hopefully the one I spent $32,000+ with) will be kind enough to help me out. I have fought with Multiple Sclerosis for the past 10 years. Still on my feet and doing pretty well overall, but my hearing has become hyper-sensitive, and noises like this KILL me! To have just a flashing light would be a great relief for the times when the chimes come into play....

The last part of your post made me curious. I tried hard to find a new Tundra with only the TRD Off Road and Towing packages, but there were none that "simple" in the Toyota system within 300 miles of me. The best I could find was one with the options I wanted, an SR5 Package for $1,910 (list), a $195 set of factory floor mats and door sill protectors, and $220 "Anti-Theft System w/ Alarm and Engine Immobilizer."

Makes me wonder if that final item was just a Techstream adjustment that might have been available for free???? Too soon old, too late smart!

Daryl
