Default seatbelt reminder chime on 2006 accord

Anyone have any luck disabling the seatbelt reminder on a 2006 Accord? Can I
unplug the sensor under the seat without setting off a code?

The new cars will not allow silencing the seatbelt chime the way you used
to be able to. Beeper control is part of the multifunction unit under the
dash, which uses the seat sensor as one of its inputs. Disconnecting the
sensor will not have the effect you want.

The chime is amazingly annoying when all you're doing is crawling in a
parking lot, or moving cars in the driveway. I wish they would have it kick
in only after the car reaches 15-20mph or so.

There are two realistically possible ways to shut the chime up if you need
to:
1) Go to the wreckers. Cut a buckle off a wreck's belt. Insert that into
the receptacle as needed.
2) Do up belt behind your back.

A third way (requiring some mechanical and electrical aptitude) is to
remove the multifunction unit and unsolder/snip the little beeper button,
which is the same as those used on computer motherboards. This kills ALL
chimes, including the key-in/door open warning.

Ummm...here's a dumb solution...why don't you just wear your seatbelt?
This IS the purpose of the seatbelt chime.

56 percent of all automobile fatalities in 2003 could have been
prevented if the occupants of the vehicles involved in the accidents
wore their seatbelts. At least 75 percent of those occupants would have
lived.

I should be able to disable that so called feature. After all I don't
think it's the governments right to determine if I live or die. Hell
here in florida we have seatbelt laws but you can ride a motorcycle
without a helmet!!! Same in Illinois.

Not wearing a helmet when riding a motorcycle doesn't injure or kill others
as could happen if you lose control of your car because you are not wearing
a seat/shoulder belt.

The "government" isn't doing anything, it's not a law or mandate or
anything to have a seatbelt chime. It's just a feature from Honda to
compel buyers to drive safer.

No, you're wrong. It actually is a federal law and Honda, Toyota and
all the other manufacturer's are following it.

It's been on the books since 1974.

"Oct. 1974

Despite fact that seat belt-ignition interlocks increase seat belt use
rate to as high as 60 percent, Congress enacts legislation to prohibit
use of seat belt-ignition interlock and to limit any audible reminder
(buzzer) for seat belt use to not longer than 8 seconds in duration
after engine ignition. See 49 USC § 30124."

The way I read that it is not saying that a car must have a seatbelt buzzer.
It is limiting the length of time the seatbelt buzzer can sound for. If it
was mandated that you must have a seatbelt buzzer all the way back in 1974,
how come that is a fairly recent addition and hasn't been in all cars for
the past 30+ years. My '01 Accord has no seatbelt buzzer.
