    Although I do believe the seatbelt warning is a great feature for those who forget to put on their seatbelt (of which I know several who do), it gets annoying real quick when temporarily take off the seatbelt. Once you have thoroughly warned anyone that may remotely use your car to put on their seatbelt, use this procedure to turn off that beep.

    Step 1: First make sure the "lifetime" odometer reading is on and not Trip A or B. Than put the key in the ignition. While holding down the odometer button, turn the key to "ACC"

    Step 2: Hold the odometer button for about 10 seconds.

    Step 3: Than click the seatbelt into place while still holding the odometer button.

    Step 4: The odometer reading should change to read "B-OFF".

    Procedure From Maintenance Manual

    METER – METER / GAUGE SYSTEM

    CUSTOMIZE PARAMETERS
    1. SEAT BELT BUZZER ON/OFF SETTING
    The buzzer ON/OFF setting, which is a setting of the buzzer function of the combination meter, can disable the driver and front passenger side seat belt buzzers.
    NOTICE:
    • These buzzers should be on for safe driving. Perform these procedures only if it is necessary to set the buzzer off (disabled).
    • When either the battery cable or the combination meter connector is disconnected, these buzzers are set on (enabled).
    • Odometer returns to 0 after starting this procedure, although it is not displayed.
    HINT:
    • "b-oFF" indicates that the buzzer is OFF. "b-on" indicates that the buzzer is ON. The buzzer ON/OFF setting will be finished (the odometer will display
    "ODO") if the ODO/TRIP switch is not operated for 10 seconds or more. In this case, perform step 11 to check that the buzzer ON/OFF setting is complete. If it is not complete, start from step 1 again.
    • The legally required warning buzzer cannot be cancelled.
    • The legally required warning buzzer is the buzzer that sounds when turn the ignition switch to the ON position and the driver seat belt is unfastened.
    The buzzer sounds in order to warn the driver regardless of the vehicle speed.
    (a) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
    (b) Press the ODO/TRIP switch until the odometer displays "ODO".
    (c) Turn the ignition switch off.
    (d) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
    (e) Press the ODO/TRIP switch immediately (within 6 seconds) and hold it down for 10 seconds or more.
    (f) Continue holding down the ODO/TRIP switch and fasten the driver side seat belt.
    (g) Check that the odometer displays either "b-on" or "b-oFF".
    (h) Press the ODO/TRIP switch to change the display to "b-oFF".
    (i) Turn the ignition switch off.
    (j) Engine switch off.
    (k) Check that no buzzer sounds with the vehicle speed is 15 km/h or more and driver side seat belt is unfastened.

    Can you use these same methods to turn it back on?

    Please read the Notice: section, but yes, you can use it to switch off and on.
