My Accord is the newest car I have owned and after purchasing it I was rather surprised (and annoyed) at the amount of warning beeps coming from the car before starting it. Current procedure was: Get in car. Put keys in ignition and turn ignition on. Bong- Bong- Bong- Bong- Bong and Seatbelt warning light on dashboard. Put on seat belt. Start car & drive off. Now this Bong noise irritates me because I find it completely unnecessary. I’ve never needed to be reminded to put my seatbelt on before, honestly I feel uncomfortable driving without it on, and to keep being ‘told’ to do so by my nanny state EU dictating car every time I get in it becomes somewhat tiresome. However I learnt to tolerate it because I thought there was nothing I could do about it. Until that is I was reading a thread on another Honda website which told me otherwise. At this point the noise became even more irritating and had to go. A little research later and this is what I found: This device appears to only have one function, to annoy you into putting your seatbelt on.Its purpose is to comply with Euro NCAP testing. Every seat which has a seatbelt warning fitted when the car goes through the Euro NCAP test gives the car 1 point towards its possible 5 star rating.It is in no way connected to the drivers airbag, SRS, seatbelt pre-tensioner or any other device.The system works on an open circuit. A circuit is created in the seatbelt buckle when the seatbelt is NOT being worn causing the warning tone and associated dashboard warning light. Once buckled in an open circuit is created cancelling any future warning tones. The open circuit is the key to this mod. Under the drivers seat there is a row of 4 wire connectors. This attachment was lost due to a bug in our old forum software before launching Honda Karma. If you are the author of this post, please try and re-upload this image for future members. The picture is viewed from the drivers foot well looking back under the seat. The blue wire connector on the right hand side, which would be closest to the centre console, is the one you’re interested in. This is connected to the seatbelt buckle. This simply needs to be disconnected. Now current procedure is: Get in car. Put keys in ignition and turn ignition on. Put on seat belt. Start car & drive off. There is no seatbelt warning light on the dashboard or noise and it stays off when you begin to drive. There is also no airbag light on the dashboard. I’ve been driving with this mod for several months now and have no difference apart from the lack of irritating noise. Disclaimer: I am in no way condoning, suggesting, excusing, encouraging or implying that anyone should drive without their seatbelt on. To do so is against the law! If you are the type of person who forgets to put their seatbelt on then I recommend you do not do this. I have done this only because I do not need to be constantly reminded to put my seatbelt on so find it unnecessary. Now to finish off sorting out the door open warning beep.
