    how do you turn off the seatbelt pinging on a 987???


    Re: how do you turn off the seatbelt pinging on a 987???

    I agree, it is annoying and I'd say that anybody coming up with a solution, may legible to the Nobel prize.
    But on the other hand, there is a good reason for this pingping because a lot of people still don't buckle up.

    Re: how do you turn off the seatbelt pinging on a 987???

    It really doesn't bother me. It only comes on above 6 mph (I think) which only happens to me when I am reverse manoeuvring down the cul-de-sac where I live, as at all other times I have my belt on anyway or under 6 mph.

    Nope, if it's like the 986 it doesnt go away by buckeling up. Sadly. Whoever at Porsche came up with that stroke of genious oughtta get tied up in their own ding-ding-ding-seatbelt development facility for a good month or so.

    It's an absolutely useless feature for senile senior citizens in Miami...or some such.

    Best way to make sure people wear their seatbelt is simple:
    If the seatbelt isnt buckled, only half the valves work, or the ECU simply decreases the engine performance in another way.
    That would make most people wear it, eh?

    Look at the fuse box...if there's a fuse for the belt chimer, then pluck it out.

    Re: how do you turn off the seatbelt pinging on a 987???

    Can't you you hot wire the cable of the female buckle part so that it thinks its always making contact with the male end buckle?

    Re: how do you turn off the seatbelt pinging on a 987???

    Sorry, don't understand. The second you buckle up the warning stops? At least that what happens on mine.

    These days manufacturers have to cover themselves for being sued as a result of their customers' stupidity. If there is not a seatbelt alarm, and Senile of Southampton drives off without the seatbelt on and crashes, sustaining injuries he / she / it would not have otherwise have suffered then the manufacturer gets sued for not reminding them to put the seatbelt on. It's the same phobia with the nav system, before you can use it (every time!) you have to confirm you won't break the traffic laws i.e. the nav tells Dumdum of Detroit to turn left up a newly created one way street the wrong way. So Dumdum turns up the one way street the wrong way, because the Nav system says so, has a head on crash and then sues the manufacturer for following the Nav guidance. Crazy but that's the world we live in, I am afraid.

    Disclaimer : I am not Anti American, but all this nonsense started "over there".

    Re: how do you turn off the seatbelt pinging on a 987???

    Believe me Dreamcar when I say that we Americans hate it more than you do, since we have this type of foolishness injected into nearly every aspect of our daily routines. It's maddening to be treated like an [censored] by a machine just because 1% of the population refuse to take responsibility for themselves.

    I understand the seatbelt ping when the car is moving. But why ping when I completely stopped the car and unbuckle the seatbelt???

    HipHop brothers got their Bling-Bling.
    We Porsche brothers got our Ding-Ding.

    What's the world coming to?
