Stopped by my dealer (Tustin Lexus) and asked if they could disable the seatbelt and reverse beeps (the salesguy said "absolutely no way to disable the built-in safety features of the car" - more sales BS).

Took about 10 minutes and they were happy to do it, especially the tech. It was the first CT they had been able to play with.

I hate the beeps myself !!! I make sure they are turned off before I take delivery of my cars :)
I tried to get them to do it and both the salesman and the general manager gave me the same spiel about not being allowed to modify the safety features.

I didn't force the issue because I knew service could do it - it's in the manual darn it!

It's a liability for a dealership, or atleast that's what our in house laywer has stated. Because of that, when we do it, we make sure it is entered into the NSH that the customer has requested this to be turned off and was advised against it. :rolleyes:

What seatbelt beeps are we talking about? I understand the reverse beeps. Is this for not wearing the seat belt? I didn't notice any seat belt beeps on my 2 test drives.

If you start driving without your seat belt, it will beep once. After about 30 seconds, it starts beeping like crazy.

It's possible they had turned off the beep in the test vehicles.

That is what I thought. I don't have that problem. I always wear my seat belt.

Take it from a retired Police Officer if you want to have a chance of surviving an accident Wear Your Seat Belt.

Sorry about the soap box. 37 years on the Police Department will do that to you.

Wear that SEAT BELT! :eek:

I do agree and encourage EVERYONE to wear your seat belt, but I don't need a damn "beep" to tell me to wear it. I can't tell you how many times all I'm doing is moving our car out of the way in the driveway and the damn beep starts going crazy. No thanks, I'll wear my belt when I need to ;)

It's automatic, when I get in a car I put on the seat belt even if I am not going anywhere.

Same here. It's ingrained in my psyche. It has saved my life on multiple occasions.

Does reverse beeps occur with Nav or is it just for those without Nav or Rearview Backup Camera?

Picking up car in about a week and would be nice to now if I can get them to remove it while they are prepping.
