Speed Chime removal / adjustment

Guys,

Does anyone know how to remove or adjust the speed chime in an 86? Or any Toyota for that matter? Living in Dubai has its perks like 140km/h speed limits outside of town. Good on your drive to Abu Dhabi, crap if you have to listen to the chime all the way....

I would like to disable it completely or atleast change it to 140km/h. Any advise would be appreciated.

I thought it's a JDM only thing? No chime on mine either.

Do you have the buzzer set to ON for your shift light? Is that the chime you are hearing?

I can't think of any other chime other then the door being open.

I was in Japan working for a month and when we went out in buddysan's car it would chime at 100kmph iirc. It's a nanny to remind you to slow down. It must be in other markets too.
I don't know what it is, but there must be a fix for this.

I'm thinking it's the RPM indicator chime. Check owners manual for that setting, which can be set to specific RPM and to ON/OFF. You're the first to report this chime and I'm sure there are loads of others who have had their cars as fast.

Guaranteed not RPM indicator as my 86 is the base model. All Toyota's in the Middle East have this. Constant beeping to tell me I am over 120km/h. Bloody irritating. Both my Sierra and the wife's Tahoe have the same but one chime only and then the display telling you you are overspeed.

Pretty sure it is a country or region setting just need to figure out how to change or switch it off.

So any ideas?

Would be annoying to have the chime on the race track. so only thing I can think of it to try turning TC off. Not really a good solution long term but the only thing I can think of at the moment. Try once with the button down for 5 secs and if that doesn't work try the pedal dance?

NZ model does not have this. European model doesn't have it either or we would have heard about it from the press.

This is a mandate in UAE that all cars should have some sort of warning when you reach 120kph. In my wife's Dodge Caliber this would be one ring and them just an indicator in the dash. I have driven a Mitsu Lancer before and once it hits 120kph it would chime continuously until you reduce your speed. I guess Japanese make cars would be the same.

As far as I know you can have this disabled from garages that do modification.

If anyone watched Initial D during the first season, once the AE86 reaches 100kph the chime would sound continuously. This is the same in UAE but set at 120kph. Some cars more annoyingly than others.

I have asked at the dealer about this and all I get is blank stares. They either do not understand what it is I am asking or just do not care.

Is there any way to change the "country" as set up in the car?

You might check to see if the chime has a fuse all its own ..... if so, pull it......
