Disabling seatbelt warning chime

To disable the seatbelt warning chime:
  1. Press the start button twice to enter "ignition mode" (not accessory mode)
  2. Insert and release the drivers seatbelt 20 times within a 30 second period
  3. Press the start button again to shut off ignition
  4. When you start the car next, the seatbelt chime will be disabled

I can confirm this works on my '22 BRZ Limited.

This thread is meant to be informative, not to start a debate on the virtue of "idiot deterrents" .

Hat tip to this YouTube video that showed up on my feed this morning (seatbelt bit starts 4 mins in).

The sound of the seatbelt warning chime is kinda’ nice. It’s like a gentle reminder to strap yourself in.

Until you turn off the engine with the door off. Then I've no idea why there's no way to press a button or something to stop it.

On the gen.1 at least you could push the rubber knob in the door jamb, but in 2022 even it is gone.

Thanks @cpierr03! The seat belt alarm is very annoying especially when you just want to move your car around the house and the alarm gets super loud.
I did this and it worked the first try. One thing I noticed that I do like is the seat belt alarm will still activate when you first start the car, but it will stop in a normal time.
