Hello All,

I'm new to the forum as I've just purchased a 09 Enclave CXL.

Look forward to being part of this as well of coarse enjoying the Enclave.

Question I have....most of the time I drive with seat belt on however when doing small runs to the store in town generally hop in, do the chore and return. Would like to know if there is a way to disable the annoying chime (not necessarily the red seatbelt light) on the Enclave?

Thanks all.... Smiley

Using your seat belt would be the smart thing to do even if you are only turning around in your driveway.

It will only do the "5 time chime" when you put it into gear and then once or twice a little later on, it will not continually chime like other makes such as ford.

You would have to check this out, but I believe that most accidents happen within 5 miles of home...a good reason to always put on your seat belt.

And also consider moving at least 6 miles away. Grin

To answer your question---
You can purchase a seatbelt extender- either on ebay or dealer (they have one for front and rear seats)-  and simply cutoff the belt and insert the metal part that clicks in to the belt... that way it thinks its always belted.

just type in enclave seat belt extender in ebay.. (or traverse, acadia, outloook)


But- Id still say- wear a seatbelt.

This is also because most driving occurs less than 5 miles from home.

But I agree, always wear your seat belt.

Two who died in Pittsburgh last night were not wearing their seatbelts.  The other 16 year old driver who hit the two men wore her seatbelt.  Both cars were totaled. Need I say more! Sad

All very true stuff, wearing seatbelts is impoartant....BUT, do you all realize the OP hasn't responded to any of this?  He was just asking a simple question about how to disable the chime, but got a bunch of lectures about wearing seatbelts.  confused  "rbarrios" was the only one to really answer the question.  We'll see if he responds, but I know in the past I've been scolded for not answering a question, and trying to just add comments to a discussion.
