Default '06 Baja Turbo; How do I turn off the seat belt beeping?

I have a 2006 Baja Turbo.

Roughly 10 or 15 seconds after I turn the car on, I hear relentless annoying beeping until I buckle my driver's side seatbelt.
I believe in belting up, but I often don't buckle up that quickly after getting in the car. I'd like a minute or two, at least.

Is there an easy way to turn off the beeping?
I was thinking that I might need to get a wire harness from a driver's side seatbelt connection (from a Baja or Outback?), and plug it into the wires going to my seatbelt buckle, but create a loop, so the seatbelt beeping system thinks my seatbelt is always attached. Will that work? Or is there something more simple than that?

Thanks for any replies.

I had the same problem with my '06 Baja Turbo. Try turning the ignition on, then fasten and unfasten the drivers belt about 20 times as quickly as possible. Then start up the vehicle. The bell should still chime, but should stop after about ten seconds and not sound anymore after that. Worked for me! All I get now is the initial 10 second chime after startup, then it stops after that. It was pretty annoying! Good luck

A guy here got hit last spring just as he backed out of his driveway. Hadn't buckled up yet, said he usually does before 'going too far'.

No belt = steeringwheel/windshieldface = brain damage.

Sit in car.
Start car.
Buckle up.
Drive.

Please.

I definitely advocate wearing seatbelts.
My question in no way was meant to suggest that I'm trying to avoid putting my seatbelt on.

I just can't stand the beeping noise. Maybe my hearing is super sensitive, but there are times when the beeping is almost ear piercing for me.
Yes, I could just make sure to buckle up before I even start the car, and I do that when I'm away from my home. But its not convenient or practical for me for when I'm at home. My driveway is 300 feet long. I park in my garage. When I back out of my garage, or before pulling into the garage, I sometimes get out of the car for a minute to do things. If I had to put my seatbelt on just to back out of (or drive into) the garage, and then take it off 20-seconds later, thats ridiculous. If I leave the car running in my driveway (just outside my garage), then the beeping starts as soon as I open the door and sit in the car.

Thanks for the responses.

Do the '03 or '04 models have the seatbelt beeping noise? Probably not.
So '06 is the only year with the seatbelt beeping? I wonder why.

Do the '06-'07 Legacy's, Forester's, Impreza's have the seatbelt beeping noise?

don't have to buckel the belt, just push the botton 20 times.

There is a plastic connector attached to the underside of the seat. Although a bit of a pain to get to, disconnect and it will solve the problem. I advocate seat belt use but its a bit annoying when working on the car... swapping cars... headed to the end of the driveway...

My 05 does... I can't stand it either, as I'm a "belt before you move" driver.

i have the seat belt light, but i don't think mine has ever chimmed. i got the schematic if you want, pm me with an email address and i'll send it to you. but, please wear your belt. someone else may care about you, even if you don't. also, life insurance will NOT pay if something happens. so all of you family guys, think about it!

I don't know if that is true. As a matter of fact, I highly doubt it, unless it is a specific exclusion.

Regardless though, there is one justification for seatbelts OTHER than personal safety, that is the safety of others.

Wearing the belt can conceivably keep a driver behind the wheel during extreme conditions which MAY help him/her regain control of the vehicle or otherwise help to create a positive outcome once the vehicle has lost all or partial control during an incident.
