Q: seat belt ding noise

asked by on

can you take out a fuse to stop the seatbelt ding noise?
My car has an automatic transmission.

The quick answer is no. The noise comes from a module that is connected to the air bag system of your car and cannot be deactivated. In addition, it is always advised to wear your seat belt, and the dinging noise helps remind you if a passenger is not strapped in.
