I know on my two other vehicles that there is a way to disable the seatbelt chime. In both of them it was a series of clicking and unclicking the seatbelt in a certain sequence. In both of the vehicles the manual told you how to do this. In the manual for the outlook, there is no mention of this. Does anyone know how to disarm the seatbelt chime or is it not possible on the 2008 models. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Having an '04 Suburban, I've become all too familiar with the incessant dinging as well, for over 3 years now. And also came to know that there really is no way to turn it off, trick or otherwise, it's just programmed into the system and wiring, and just "like that" from now on--unless you feel like researching and cutting wires, etc.

For a while, I didn't see anyone really come up with a solution, UNTIL I just read on a GM truck forum that someone just unplugged a small harness under each front seat that goes to the seatbelt--therefore killing the chimes. And so far, no ill effects.

This was on a 2007 GMC Sierra, and there's a lot of electrical similarities in how they're set up compared to an Acadia/Outlook/Enclave, but no for sure answer on making a similar move with one of them--but it could be similar.

In the meantime, I'd check out the much more active GMC Acadia forum and also go over to the Outlook forum at SaturnFans.com and ask about something like this^^, as far as just unplugging something. You'll likely just get a lot of "no, can't be done...annoys me too" responses, but you never know, since there's always a few people that experiment with everything.

Just out of curiosity what were the vehicles you could disable the chime on?

I don't find the chiming bothersome, therefore I have not looked for a way.

Maybe finding a way to complete the circuit inside the buckle itself will work. I imagine that the insertion of the belt causes the circuit to close.

I have noticed that on highway driving the chime stops going off, but when in stop and go traffic the chime does go off. If I exit the highway and stop, the chime goes off. The light for both driver and passenger also goes off when on the highway.

Was told that you can't disable it and the ability to do so was taken away by the govt.

Could always unplug it under the seat. Should be a wire that comes out from under the seatbelt on the inboard side of the seat.That is the seat belt chime wire unplug it and it will not chime.

I just checked on our 08 Outlook, if you don't wear your belt (we always do) you can pull it all the way out and route it behind the seat and buckle it and leave it there. Wanted to make sure it was long enough, and it is. I wouldn't just unplug something, don't know if it affects the air bag, especially on the passenger side where it senses a person in the seat.
