I can't relate. I leave my work stuff at work when I go home. As well as I'm paid, it's not enough to work at home. I also leave my home stuff at home when I go to work. As much as they pay me, they don't want to see me doing home stuff at work. If that doesn't work for you, use the trunk or leave the seat belt buckled all the time.

I have a frustrating problem with my 2010 SS Camaro. I carry a very heavy backpack (It's for work) and gym bag. When I set it in the passenger seat about 50% of the time the stupid chime starts going off for the seatbelt. The options I have for stopping it are:

1. Pushing my backpack around
2. Buckling the passenger seatbelt before getting in the car
3. Putting the backpack in the trunk.

All of those are annoying, and I'd like to disable the chime for the passenger seat belt warning. My Saturn has a way to disable this electronically, but as far as I know the Camaro doesn't. The only options I've seen are:

1. Buy a seatbelt and plug it in (Annoying for the passenger when she wants the real one)
2. Pull the fuse (Also annoying because there are some other systems affected)
3. Solder the wires in the buckle together so the car thinks the belt is buckled all the time. (Annoying that I have to yank the seat out to fix)

I'd like to avoid messing around with the wiring, does anyone know of a factory way to turn that off, before I rip the seat out?

God people please refrain from turning this into a belt vs. No belt flame war...
1. Good for you, I do too.
2. I believe that it is somewhat still a free country and it is none of my buisness who does or does not wear a seat belt. I like to ride my Harley helmetless sometimes and I get very annoyed that someone thinks that they should be able to enact mandatory helmet laws. Were does the nannyism end? A life preserver to swim? A NASCAR style helmet to ski? Rubber baseballs because some one might get hit?
3. I don't think that I am flaming you.

If that is your bigest complaint about your Camaro, then it must be a pretty good car.

drop out of school, problem solved.


seriously, I'm surprised there isn't anything that could be done to remove the chime. On my mustang, if you do a certain sequence with the ignition switch and belt buckle, you can permanently remove the chiming sound. I'm sure there is something that can be done.

If anything, keeping the seatbelt on and then sitting will work best for your scenario, but I was wondering why you sit with your bag on? Just curious, no flaming or anything
Really? You didn't read the OPs post did you?

Lol! Most of these comments are hilarious and thanks to everyone for not starting the stupid seatbelt argument for the 100th time. It's not an end of the world problem, but I'm surprised there isn't a way to turn that dinging bastard off.

I actually put the backpack in the trunk quite often, but when I don't is when it's annoying. I got in a habit of putting it in the seat when I drove a C5 with subs taking up the trunk area and I forget every now and then and put it in the seat.

I ended up getting a buckle and attaching it to my backpack. It's gotten a bunch of questions at work and I've only had it for like a day. The funniest response I've gotten was asking why I care so much about my backpack to buckle it in.

If that is your bigest complaint about your Camaro, then it must be a pretty good car.
Despite having spent several years of my career in the Detroit area in the design and test of airbag and occupant sensing systems and having witnessed about a hundred accidents (at various manufacturer crash test facilities), I fundamentally agree with this. Except, who is first treated at the emergency room? If I get t-boned by some guy running a stoplight on a motorcycle while not wearing a helmet, causing my beer bottle fly out of my hand, smash on the dash and cut my forehead, then who sees the doc first?

I posted this in another thread, but all you have to do is unplug the terminal connected to the latch portion of the seatbelt. I unplugged mine with the seat out but I think it can be done with the seat installed. No more chime and the airbags still work if that's your thing. The car thinks the belt is latched. The chime appears to be a NO switch that is closed when plugged up to a non latched seatbelt.

Passenger floor. It's close by, and it helps the leather.
I'm all about the leather!
