  1. Hello,
    and thank you for your advice!
    Do you know how to disable the Seat Belt Alarm/Chime in Subaru Forester SH (2008-2013)?
    The signal comes not when starting the engine, but when the speed is over 20 km/h…
    And one more question: are the air bags also disabled by it?
    Thank you and greetings from Russia!

    • umm.. I am not sure if your Russian model is different then the one here in the U.S. I would think this would work for yours as well. No this doesn’t disable the air bags only the seat belt chime and light. The dealer should be able to disable it for you too..

  2. You are my hero. That alert beep was as persistent and maddening as chinese water torture. Freeeeeedom!

  3. Can you please tell me how to disable the seatbelt alarm on a 2013 Subaru Outback
    The alarm only starts when you have reached 15-20 kms then doesn’t stop until you put your belt on.
    Thanks, you site is amazing.

    • Hello, This should work for that year and model. As many of the comments on you tube have said it has worked. If not have a scroll though your owners manual I want to say page 35 or 45 it should tell you how to disable it. If I am wrong about the page number look in the back in the glossary and find seat belt chime or belt minder and will tell you what page to look on.

  4. My 2011 Legacy chime had been disabled after purchase, giving five peaceful driving years. My new Impreza’s chime was a shock, but I had not kept directions for responding.

    Your direct and clear instruction worked like a charm. Thanks for restoring serene driving to me and my dogs.

  5. My hero!!! It worked! I take lots of roadtrips: hot weather. Many times i just need to read a map with air cond on. Being strapped in to a car in park is AWFUL! Really….i might be looking at a map but i am also taking a 5 min break from driving. Marry me ♡
