Does anyone know how to do this?

After searching the web, I found the following method




Turning Off Seatbelt Reminder


Before starting this procedure, make sure that... The handbrake's on It's in Park
or neutral.Ignition is off. All doors are closed (and you're in the car). All the
seatbelts are unbuckled. The headlamps are off.

Deactivating/Activating

Turn the ignition switch to position II. (Do not start the engine).
Wait until the safety belt warning indicator turns off. (Approximately one to two
minutes).
The next 3 steps must be completed within 60 seconds or the procedure must be
repeated.
Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times, ending with the safety belt
unbuckled.
Turn the headlamps ON then OFF.
Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times ending with the safety belt
unbuckled.
After this step the safety belt warning indicator will be illuminated for three
seconds.
Within seven seconds of the safety belt warning indicator turning off, buckle then
unbuckle
the safety belt. This will enable the belt minder if disabled or disable belt minder
if enabled.

The following sequence will confirm the belt minder is enabled:
The safety belt warning indicator flashes four times per second for three seconds.
Three seconds with the safety belt warning indicator off. The safety belt warning
indicator flashes four times per second for three seconds again.

The safety belt warning indicator flashing four times per second for three seconds
provides confirmation of belt minder disabled.
After confirmation,the deactivation/activation procedure is complete

1 If the vehicle doesn't have a seatbelt warning light, use the SRS (airbag) warning
indicator instead.

2 If the seatbelt light doesn't normally come on until you move, proceed as above,
without initially
waiting for the belt warning indicator to go off (in this case, after the second three
buckles, the
indicator will flash a couple of times, instead of being illuminated for 3 seconds)



While this works for MK3 Mondeo's, it won't work on mine :angry:


The Ford dealership have refused to switch it off (against the law apparently)


I'm considering taking the dash apart to find this annoying little device :(
