    Can you turn off seat belt alarm in a 2013 Limited Tacoma?

    Welcome to the forum! The dealer can turn it off for you. The light in the dash may remain on but the chime will be off.

    Is it on always lol or do you keep your seat belt off when your off-roading?

    1) Turn the key 'ON', but do not start the engine (Leave your foot off the brake). Cycle your trip reset knob until it reads ODO. Turn the ignition back off. Wait a couple of seconds.
    2) Make sure seat belt is not fastened
    3) Turn the ignition back on, do not start the car (Leave you foot off the break) As soon as you see everything light up, press and hold the trip reset knob and do a long 12 second count.
    4) Keep your finger on the trip reset knob. Fasten your seat belt, as soon as you fasten your seat belt, you should see the ODO display go from XXXX miles to "b-on". At that time take your finger off the trip reset knob and press it again. It should cycle to "b-off". You should be all set and turn the ignition off and unfasten your seat belt.

    I’ve been at work all day. I’ll try to remember to test it out tomorrow.

    Doesn’t work on a third gen. I’ll probably have to get the dealership to do it

    I was told by my service advisor it’s got to be hooked up to their reader to change the setting in the ECU. I’ve read some dealers will charge up to $50 to do this for you. I’m sure if you take it in for the next service and ask really nice they’ll do it for free.
    Best time to do it is when you purchase the vehicle to ask then and make it part of the sale/deal.

    Do you not have a seat belt law in your state? No offense but the seat belt is there for a reason, YOUR SAFETY and your passengers also.

    Yeah. But at low speeds, off-road and the like, frequent stops at low speed it’s annoying

    I'll take annoying over injury........just my opinion and nothing more.

    Same here. It locks up at the perfectly wrong moments sometimes in the woods when I'm trying to lean up to see where I'm going or I try to reach across the steering wheel with my left arm and it locks up.... that's why I had mine turned off... I still wear it if I'm going farther than the gas station tho... and I always make my passengers wear their seatbelts off or on road.

    Same here. Any real hard road driving or any speed above 5-10 mph the seat belt is on.

    Also if you have a dog that weighs enough to set the passenger seat belt warning chime off and they like to sit there that can be annoying.
    Or when you set a heavy box or bag on the passenger seat.
    The warning chime that bothers me even more is the doors open warning chime when the key is in acc mode. Trying to have the stereo on with the doors open and it’s beep beep beep beep beep beep SMH

    I've tried the steps about a dozen times on my 2012 Tacoma, and the ODO doesn't ever change from mileage to "b-on".
