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?"
