BeltMinder activation and deactivation procedure
1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (or ON) position. (DO NOT
START THE ENGINE)
2. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off. (Approximately 1
minute)
• Step 3 must be completed within 60 seconds after the safety belt
warning light turns off.
3. At a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times,
ending with the safety belt in the unbuckled state.
• After Step 3 is complete, the safety belt warning light will be turned
on for 3 seconds.
• If Step 4 does not occur within 10 seconds at the end of Step 3,
BeltMinder will automatically exit programming mode without
changing its enable status.
4. Within 10 seconds of the light turning on, at a moderate speed, buckle
then unbuckle the safety belt.
• This will disable the BeltMinder feature if it is currently enabled. As
confirmation, the safety belt warning light will flash 4 times per
second for 3 seconds.
• This will enable the BeltMinder feature if it is currently disabled. As
confirmation, the safety belt warning light will flash 4 times per
second for 3 seconds, followed by 3 seconds with the light off, then
followed by the safety belt warning light flashing 4 times per second
for 3 seconds again.
5. After receiving confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is
complete.

unplug it.......

under the seat the should be a plug that is attached the seatbelt receiver. unplug it and see if that does the trick. i have both of mine unplugged on my F250 and Excursion, i've unplugged quite a few as well, no ill effects so far.

Just unplug the seat belt wires on the inside of the drivers seat belt located under the seat.

Drove me nuts at camp for a year, ding ding ding. The easiest is to just push the belt release button on the drivers side after starting. Kills it until you shut it off again. Next time you start just push the belt release.

The proper way to disable the seat belt reminder is with the instructions Redford posted. Cutting wires or unplugging connectors under the seat is liable to disable other safety features you don't want disabled, such as your air bags and seat belt pretensioners.

Just in case you thought I was complaining with regards to your answer, I wasn't.It seams that someone else on here thinks I was complaining or something. I was just making a joke regarding the length of steps needed. Again thank you for your reply & thats the steps I'll be using.
