How to Turn Off the Seat Belt Bell in a Chrysler 300

by Katebo

You can shut off the seat belt chime on your Chrysler 300. It is there to remind you to put on your seat belt but many people find it very annoying. When you turn off the bell, the seat belt light will still illuminate on your instrument panel. If you turn off the seat belt bell and later change your mind, you can always turn it back on. Keep in mind, however, that in many states it is illegal to drive your vehicle without having your seat belt fastened.

Step 1

Get into the driver's seat and close the door. Fasten your seat belt and pull a lot of seat belt slack forward with your hands.

Step 2

Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the "on" position, but don't start the engine. Watch the instrument panel for the seat belt warning light to shut off.

Step 3

Unfasten the seat belt and the seat belt warning light will turn on. Fasten the seat belt and wait for the light to shut off.

Step 4

Repeat Step 3 two more times, making sure you end the process with the seat belt unfastened. Do this whole process within one minute but also make sure the seat belt light turns off each time. If the seat belt bell turns on while you are doing this procedure, shut off the vehicle and start the whole process again.

Turn the vehicle off. As you do this, you will hear one final bell to let you know you've done it correctly.
