What ... oh what oh what oh what is with the Seal Belt chime!!?? It comes through the stereo speakers and if you have the radio on, and are listening at a moderate volume, the loudness of the seat belt chime seems predicated on the radio volume and so comes on louder than the radio! The first time I heard this, I almost pulled over, it was (is) silly loud.. ! I wear a seat belt. - this is not about "don't want to wear my seal belt" - but I often put it on when I'm coming down my drive way, or after I stop at the mail box down by the road etc and then start down the road... anyway who cares when I put my seat belt on... but the volume of the chime through the stereo is NUTs! Yes I found the chime volume control in the settings and turn it down to low, but still no change. Is there another way? Am I the only one? help for the love of god turn it down!

Fortunately, I only have one working ear-so I just ignore it. Probably not the droids you were looking for. I have not found any way to shut it up.

I believe there is a connector that goes to the seat belt buckle itself which can be disconnected. Not sure if it affects how the airbags work or not though. I just hate how the chime always has to be louder then any noise it detects. Ie radio, road noise, talking in the cab etc etc I use our truck a lot off road and the seat belt chime eventually stops and the light just blinks but it takes a several mins to accomplish that.

You can adjust the chime volume in the settings, which helps some, but it is still too loud if you like to crank the music (have a Bose system) like I do. If you turn down the volume before shutting it down, the chime won't be so loud next time. I have gotten into the habit of buckling up before I turn the key. The truck wins, I am trained.

I actually wish my kid's car had this system, she is inclined not to fasten her seat belt. No way that is happening in the twins.

Yes this belt chime is ridiculous! Very loud even when adjusted down. If you amp door speakers watch out!! Anyhow when I had my infotainment screen/ HMI unit fail/ go black when out of warranty, I just opted for an aftermarket one JVC touchscreen .. Love it btw. Installers had to put OLD STYLE CHIME BOX & adapter, as well as steering wheel control adapter, rear camera adapter... Well My chime box sound is little cheesy sounding but soooo much quieter. My aftermarket stereo set up it was only $600 all together,rather than have dealer replace HMI and program it, total from dealer was well over 1200$

I turned mine down too.
But it’s still TO LOUD

Its not the seat belt chime but the key in the ignition chime.
You put the key in and it causes hearing damage it’s so loud.

Another GM engineer moron doing there best.
