There's a much practical way - and you can do it as you drive. Just press the red button on the seatbelt buckle repeatingly - for 7-10 times may be. And then it deactivates -both the signal and the icon on the dashboard.

and an even quicker way:

here it is from the mk2 user manual........buckle up and within 3 seconds unbuckle....and that's it.

...........simples

Obviously this is a one trip fix, meaning it goes back to the default warning at the next ignition fire up. In fact it may need doing again in a jump out of the car to open a gate operation scenario.

How to activate/deactivate chime and warning light for seat belt

Working for Focus Mk2 and deactivating both. I'd really prefer to leave warning light and only turn off chimes, but it seems it always goes together, stupid solution for us who take a lot of short and slow rides. Information display has settings for different chimes, but not for this one.

Passenger doesnt have an alarm normally, but if they do, I believe it covers both.
