I had to open up the hole in the airbox and shave some of the "fins" on the bottom to finesse the PCV pipe in there, but it worked. I also cut off most of the "female" portion so I could maneuver it easier.

1st 3 pics kind of show what I'm talking about. The plastic ring in the 2nd pic with the white plastic screws...that has to come off. I put it back on to go with the snorkus when I sold it all. But you can see where I shaved the opening a bit.

I think I got the idea from a post on ScoobyMods, but it's been a while.

As an aside, General Motors has been, and continues to push for the mandating of DRL's in the United States, and does offer them on every vehicle they sell. GM also offers retrofit kits (that you must purchase) for older GM models that do not have DRL's.

Default ecu reset doesn't affect belt chime

I bought my wagon new and the seat belt chime delete was already done?!?!? BUT!!! I DO NOT have to repeat the steps after an ECU reset. I get the few beeps and light at start up but then no light or sound without the belt on.... I just thought that's how wrx's were.......until I recently rode in my buddy's 04 sedan and his chime was screaming the whole way to the store. hmmmmmmm, maybe my wagon is weird.....

Disabled my DRL today. Easy to do and it works. I did notice that I no longer get any reminder beeps/chimes if I leave the lights on, turn the car off, and open the door. Remember to turn them off or you'll have a dead battery. I'm sure I'll do that at some point.

what i did was chop it in half of what the snorkle delete would look like and i cut a a flat piece off whatever was remaining from the snorkle and just melted them together with a torch. problem solved.

1. Insert key into ignition. Turn to "Accessory On" position. This is the last click before you would turn the key to start the engine. Your radio and annoying seatbelt chime will be ON.

2. Within 5 seconds of turning your key to "ACC ON", take your seatbelt clip, and INSERT & RELEASE into the buckle 20 times repeatedly. Each time you INSERT the clip into the buckle, it must "click" into place. You must push the release button to remove it. Complete this 20 times within 30 seconds.

3. When you have completed the 20 clicks, turn your key off and remove it from the ignition.

4. Start your car as normal. You will notice that the seatbelt indicator chime will sound six (6) times, then go off. It will NOT come back on until the next time you start your car, and it will stay on this pattern indefinately.

5. To re-active your annoying seatbelt chime, simply unhook your positive (+) battery terminal for 30 seconds to reset the ECU.
This took me a couple of attempts but the third time wound up being the charm. The main issue seemed to be either that it actually takes more than 20 inserts and removals or I just can't count.

With that said, I can confirm that this still works on the 2011 WRX and when you get it right the seatbelt warning light(s) will go off, and stay off, after those initial six chimes. If they stay on you after the chimes then you need to try again.

Good luck!

From personal experience the plugs on the 2011 WRX behind the glove box are different. Anyone got a picture of the plug that is supposed to be pulled and how. I couldn't for the life of me get mine loose.

I first tried this in my 06 WRX about the time of the OP as well as a buddies 2.5i and my 05 Legacy GT and now again after a few extra attempts it worked for me again in my 2011 STi.

Like he said "the lights will turn off if you did it correctly"

Now if someone could just tell me how to do this in an Audi A4 and my GF would do great things for me

How do you do it in the 08+? Been looking everywhere. In my old tiburon, they just made a relay that took care if it...can't find anything here!

^Front passenger side behind the bumper. There's a big heatsink. Unplug and remove that and done.

Thanks, I actually found a thread on another forums showing how to do it using the relay. Much easier

If not, you will shorten the life of your HID bulbs as they will come on or flicker with the DRL not being totally disconnected.
Is this also true when using a relay harness for the HID's that merely uses the stock wiring as a means of knowing when to turn on?

Nice write up. I just tried it on my 2012 and the trick still works.

Additional info from another thread: 20 clicks of the belt gets you 6 dings when you start up. 30 clicks and there will be no noise at all!

Thanks for the Chime trick, helped me and my friend out quite a bit. However i would never disconnect my DRL cause its so much easier to just pull the E-brake up one click. That shuts them off just fine for me, and I can turn them back on with ease as well. (I like to switch to my DRL at night so i can spot other drivers headlights [also helps for spotting cops ahead of time])

...my headlights are dangerously dim :/

im going to go out and attempt the seatbelt trick right now i was just watching topgear on BBC and they were reviewing a Caddy CTS, it was "bonging" as he was explaining that there was a large gap in the door that he just climbed out, thats how he knew that the door was open, not that the stupid Bong was blaring in his face. lol jeremy is funny.

Probably going to do the DRL shutoff as well, because lights are stupid. if i want them on ill turn them on

???'s on the snorkus delete. does this exist in a RS? because i would like to hear the intake sound a bit more, and im probably going to run some flexible piping up from the foglight (because i have none :/ ) and get more air up there BECAUSE RACECAR. But id like to get rid of the snorkus if my rs even has one lol. its 04

thanks for any help anyone has

EDIT: just deleted the DRLs , Worked great!!!
Got the chime off, i think, it may have already been done, because i dont remember it, but whatever. I tried doing it 30 times, and it wasnt successful in making all the chimes turn off... so idk

The seatbelt hack worked great, thanks.

Quick question though, why would you want to disable the daytime running lights?
