I got a ton of comments to my post of a few weeks ago about turning off automobile warning bells. Lew was able to turn off his Ford’s bells by following instructions in the user manual (as had been suggested in a comment). A few days later he came up with the “seat belt extender,” which I ordered and installed— voila!~and it works! So great to not be nagged by bells.
I do buckle up, but when I want to, and if I’m going to drive 10 mph going downtown, I sometimes don’t use the seat belt—irresponsible, I know.
Click here for the link to the extender for Honda Fits. Click here for link to seat belt extenders in general. The only caveat is that you have to depend upon the extender to be strong enough to not disconnect in an accident.
Now to figure out the keys-in-ignition/door-open bells, which I believe is more difficult.
