Ditto on removing the key before getting out of the car.

Easiest "upgrade" of all and it costs zilch. Don't even need to break out a screwdriver.

If that can't be done, just unplug it and live without it. You're not missing out on anything.

Just be happy you don't have a newer car that simulates a inbound North Korean missile alert as soon as you take off before buckling up. So annoying.
Has there ever been a modification that you've endorsed? For Pete sakes, this isn't a thread about how you can live with your car the way it is, its a thread on how you can modify it simply and cheaply to be the way you want it to be. Just because Mercedes designed it that way over 20 years ago doesn't mean it's the end all be all of engineering, or that all people will like it the way it is.

Also, unplugging it really isn't a better solution either....

@OP
This is awesome, I'm going to look into doing something similar on my 83 733i, the buzzer in that thing is brutal.

Newsflash. MB didn't design the buzzer into any of their cars by default.

The buzzer is a requirement by the Feds on all USA spec vehicles regardless of make or origin.

MB sold all their cars outside the USA without that irritating piece of crap, and the cars were all better for it.

^ Thx I would kindly ask you guys to just not say anything if it's not going to help, it makes the forum pointless cause it just shows a person who is looking for help on this topic that they should just give up cause people think there are ways to get around it. I am not doing this cause I HAVE to I WANT to. I have done many mods people would disagree with because I want my car to be different. I have installed a self-locking,unlocking-Push to start I will upload a demonstration video soon maybe. Now I want something to go with it like a nice chime, not a dying insect.

Ps: Some of you might say I'm ruining the originality, but this car is NEVER going to be SOLD, I will DRIVE the thing till it can't, and when that happens I have more plans for it

Exactly why it's so easy to disable independent of the SRS. The buzzer comes on for 5 sec after the car starts. If you haven't put your seatbelt on by then, then there is no further reminder like newer cars that beep periodically and have a light on the dash.

Disable the damn thing.

Proceed with caution. >>>

For the millionth time, I'm not trying to disable it, I'm trying to change it if I wanted to get rid of it, I wouldn't be on this forum. You're wasting your and my time, cause I'm changing it anyway, there are like probably many people who have done this mod already. Let's say I'm just in my car and I start it to get the AC in, I don't want to wear my damn seatbelt cause that's stupid and then BEEEEEEPEPEPPEPEp for 5 secs every time. I just want to change it, I'm not trying to get read of it. I don't have a key left in ignition cause I have a push to start, I CUT IT OUT!

Kid, I sent you multiple links how to change the damn buzzer to something else. If the one part isn't available find an alternative. Speaking of wasting god damn time....

You're making an excellent case for why it should be disabled. Disabling the seatbelt buzzer doesn't disable the light on or key in warnings. I didn't recommend putting in a constant reminder, tfoh.

I've seen this many times and it kinda inspired me, also I think he made his out of the same speaker that plays 30 second sound files.
