How to Disable the Seat Belt Chime in a Dodge RAM

by Necie Reed

The Dodge Ram comes equipped with the BeltAlert restraint system indicator. BeltAlert uses the seat sensors in your vehicle to sense when a passenger or driver is not wearing their seat belt. BeltAlert chimes for several minutes if a seat belt is not being utilized. To disable BeltAlert, you do not have to be a mechanic and you can do the reprogramming yourself from the comfort of your vehicle's seat.

Sit in your car's driver seat and close the door. Make sure that all doors are closed.

Place your Dodge Ram key in the ignition. Do not turn on the car. Buckle your seat belt.

Turn the ignition key to the "On" position. The seat belt reminder light will turn off after a few moments.

Buckle and unbuckle your seat belt three times within 60 seconds of turning the vehicle on. Buckle your seat belt one more time.

Turn the ignition to "Lock." The chime will sound one time to indicate that BeltAlert has been disabled.


  • It is against the law to drive without your seat belt buckled.
