that's the only reason i posted here. lol heck in my last car i swapped out the seats and put 4 point racing harness's in. way safer then your regular seat belt. but my last car was smarter. you unplug the seats from the car and it would automatically turn off the seatbelt minder system. the focus dosent realize my seats have been removed so it just flips out.

Glad you brought that up! While we are on the topic of personal responsiblity and accountability, the government-funded health insurance system is yet another example of how "nice guys" like you can be so hypocritical and oppressive. Maybe you should lecture me on what I eat and drink and how that will affect the overburdened taxpayer funded system as well? Must we require the people to exercise too, comrade? The longer we have this conversation the more it sounds like you aren't concerned about people's wellbeing but rather your ability to control what they do - 'cause ya know it affects everyone.

Don't worry about me though. I wear my belt - and on the rare, determined-by-a-grown-ass-free man times when I don't - I have the obligation, desire and cash to pay for whatever hospital care I require. So I won't be a burden on "The People's Healthcare"

I disabled my driver seat belt, but is there a way to disable the passenger one? Or did I miss that part somewhere?

I used to work on the parts dept at a ford dealership and the majority of the seat belt extensions we sold were to people who wanted to turn the seat belt chime off. They are free btw!

Never physicly kill the alarm, its just easy to pop in a fake belt to shut it up, and the next owner may want it, and have kids and no idea how to re-enable.

$6 with free shipping is peanuts for the joy of no Ding Ding

my seat belt was frayed really bad, so I got a belt out of another Focus and installed it into mine. After installing it, the belt light does not go off when I plug in the buckle. It then goes thru the five minutes of beeping etc. Why doesn't the replacement belt work properly??? Help

The parking and headlights are OFF.

1) Turn the ignition switch to ON, but DO NOT START.
2) Wait for the safety belt warning light to go OFF(1-2 minutes).
Steps 3-5 MUST be completed within 60 seconds!
3) Buckle, then un-buckle the driver's safety belt 3 times, ending with the belt un-buckled.
4) Turn on the headlights, turn off the headlights.
5) Buckle, then un-buckle the driver's safety belt 3 times, ending with the belt un-buckled.
After step 5, the Safety Belt Warning Light will be turned on for 3 seconds.
6) Within 7 seconds of the safety belt warning light turning OFF, buckle then un-buckle the safety belt. This will disable the Belt Minder if it is currently enabled, or enable the Belt Minder if it is currently disabled.

Confirmation of the disabling of the Belt Minder is provided by flashing the safety belt warning light 4 times per seconds for 3 seconds. Confirmation of the enabling of the Belt Minder is provided by flashing the safety belt warning light 4 times per seconds for 3 seconds, followed by 3 seconds with the safety belt light off, then followed by flashing the safety belt light 4 times per second for 3 seconds again. After confirmation, the deactivation/activation of the Belt Minder procedure is complete.
With my 2006 Focus Step Two never comes. I waited for ten minutes (playing Angry Birds) and the alarm doesn't sound unless the car is running. Hmph. So does that mean the Second method is bogus?

Guess it's time to go find the speaker.
