    Excelent fix. That noise has been bugging me since i bought the car. I allways wear my belt, but there are times when ill be sitting with the ebrake on loading CDs or something, and that noise would be like knives in my ears. Thanks for the advise.

    I have an 08 WRX and this didn't work. But from what I'm reading in previous posts it looks like the earlier models alarm worked differently. My seatbelt alarm only sounds when the cars in gear and goes over a certain MPH (I think its btw 5-7 mph). This is a really good safety feature but it can get very annoying. Let me know if anyone finds any solutions.

    Seat Belt Chime of Death!

    Hey guys,

    I'm new to the site just registered cause I really wanted to fill you in on what worked for me. This is probably the easiest method I've found, and for those of you like me who are having problems with the 20 times in 30 seconds method check this out.

    1. Look under your drivers seat. (For me this was easiest from the rear seat).

    2. You should see a set of about four wiring plugs under there. (this is on the 07 impreza model, not sure on others but you should have something very similar).

    3. If 07* simply find the white plug

    ...(its the third one in if your looking from the back. In my car 3 of four are yellow plugs and have yellow tape covering the wires leading out of the plugs. The white one leading out is black. )

    4. unplug the wiring plug.

    5. Turn on the car.

    6. Watch as only the light blinks a few times and then disappears!! No sound!


    *(---if you don't have the 07 model, well just do what i did. trace the cable coming out of the base of your seat belt buckle connector and figure out where it leads. On mine underneath the seat it split into two cables, i actually tried unplugging the other one first and didn't work so tried the other one and it was the correct plug.---- )

    wow this seems too easy ill have to try it - I always wear my seat belt and will never not wear it. Just for auto X where I push my car - I like to have the power steering and brakes so I have it in on - listen to music.

    This will be a great relief.

    Does any1 know if you can get the driver door open thingy to turn off to? The alarm when the key is in and the door is open- Im pretty sure I can tell when my door is open

    You could tape over the little spring return push button in the door well that activates the chime, but then your interior lights won't come on at night when you open the door.

    This one will probably be a bit tougher to trace out.

    can you plug it back in easily or do you rip it out?

    also for the 20 clicks thing mine just does its annoying beeping thing for like the first complete warning sequence - I believe 6 beeps and then it doesn't do it continuously - this is what is supposed to happen right?
    is this what happens to you guys

    also I just did the 20 clicks and actually if it is in the ON position you don't hear the door open chime and you don't hear the seatbelt chime b/c it was disengaged so people who had my same question the 20 clicks is a good easy solution

    I doubt it...different sensors. Besides, have you ever heard of an airbag not deploying because someone wasn't wearing a seatbelt? Same principle.
