i did a google search. it seems that the number of times you switch the key on/off varies by model. one comment thing mentioned is that the chime gives one ding when disabled. as yours doesn't STOP dinging you might have to try switching 3, 4, or 5 times to see if it works.

it's worth a try right?


2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Seat Belt Dinger Will not Shut off.? - Yahoo! Answers

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you...ime_stop_on_your_2008_dodge_ram
(you'll have to cut & paste the full link together)

these two posts came from a cached copy of a dead link.

I have done this on many vehicles for customers. Sometimes it takes a few

times. I did a Durango and I had to unbuckle and buckle the seatbelt 5

times. I did it on a Ram reg cab and it would only disable it if I did it

3 times. The first mistake I made the first time was I started the

engine. Just turn the ignition on don't start it.
1. Buckle your seatbelt without the key in.
2. Insert key and turn. DO NOT START ENGINE!!!!!
3. Wait until the seatbelt light turns off.
4. Unbuckle and buckle the seatbelt 3 times.
5 Leave seatbelt buckled.
6. Turn Key to off position and you should hear a chime. If not start

over. Try buckling the seatbelt more than 3 times.

Okay- determined to figure out this damn belt reminder, I tried several

different things and finally succeeded using a different technique:

1. Turn the key to on without starting the engine, but do NOT buckle the

belt yet.

2. Leaving the key on, buckle and unbuckle the belt several times.

3. On the third buckle, mine chimed once.

4. Voila!! Now when starting, the belt chime sounds briefly. After

driving with the belt on, unbuckling the belt activates the instrument

panel light, but NO MORE ANNOYING CHIME!

5. Celebrate with icy cold adult beverage.

Did the seat belt disable but it did not work. The fix may be on the way as in new parts. I got through to Chrysler customer assistance and both myself and the dealer were told that new contracts have been signed with the various suppliers and that starting Monday parts should start flowing agian. I guess lots of people have been in parts limbo.

I'll find out soon

My wife & I will be towing our baby to Wading Pines CG in Chadsworth NJ on Wed. But as luck would have it, our Chrysler Aspen has developed an electrical hiccup. It's showing "no BUS" under the odometer and the dash lights blink on and off.
The good news is that my mechanic says that this is a computer prob, and shouldn't affect our trip.
I'll take the TV to my new dealer for this warranty work (my old dealer was one of the ones shut down) on Monday and if they can't get the part by Wed morn, I'll pick her up for the trip and return it when they have it.
The real question is, will they be able to get the parts?

Monkeypants, Hopefully you won't need to have your instrument cluster replaced/exchanged or have the trouble that 63air is having. However, it is generally required that the vehicle not be driven once the exchange unit has been ordered. This prevents any odometer discrepancies.

Got a recall notice on my wife's '08 T&C for a lower power steering hose. Called the dealer, they had it in stock and replaced it a week before moving their inventory from Durango to Cortez as they also own a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealership there. BTW, this is the T&C with the 4.0 V-6 that we use to tow a t@b. Great combo.

Quite frankly, I'm looking forward to a buying a Fiat 500 with a Hemi!
