Well, I felt pretty silly doing it but I finally disabled the stupid belt reminder. I half expected it to rain or something when I was done; That is a really funny procedure.
Now keep in mind that I ALWAYS (read: 100% of the time) wear my seat belt and cannot drive without it on. However, I simply had to disable the reminder because when I would start the car to show friends, and leave it running, the stupid belt reminder would go off and just be down-right annoying. That and I have to juggle cars in the morning sometimes when my wife blocks me in, and I hate to get in the car (already running from the juggling) and immediately have the stupid belt reminder sounding off. I'm just glad that they provide a method for disabling it. :smile:

Why are you waiting for a floormat?
Its the principle of the thing.
My salesguy was a numbnut. He took my window sticker, forgot to install the radio antenna and let me go without a passenger's floormat.
I got a new sticker, he did install a antenna but I never got the floormat. He's long gone so I'm having to deal with the Sales GM.
Thanks Everybody!(especially Gibscreen) I thought those instructions sounded almost like a joke, but they worked! Looks like I started a minor maelstrom, but I now know (and assumed) it was "Read the F______ Manual", and that the streets are no doubt safer for Bullit driving policemen. I wear that thing for the most part, as you should, I am just not into Mandates!
