Chimes and beepers are for grills at the fast food joint.
Who is preventing you from tuning your car? Every hemi from 05-12 is tunable today.

Can't stand the nanny state, the holier-than-thou crowd, or people who answer a simple question with their moralizing worldviews. The roads are littered with idiots that are threatening my life daily and aren't getting pulled over for it - I keep my eyes peeled and don't break a sweat. There's even people who buy a RWD muscle car and have no clue how to control it - they also endanger me, but it's a free country.

Now someone please tell me why Dodge allows the owner to kill the chime. Bueller?
I never said you didn't, I fully understood you wore yours except in a few instances where your job or the circumstances dictated in was unnecessary or unwarranted. But I also don't appreciated having to see my
tax dollars go to some idiots who refuse to wear one and fully support a law that forces them to or penalizes
them for not wearing in the hopes that gets them to since common sense won't. I don't live in a fantasyland
where I think people will do things just because it's the smart or right thing to do. I worry about real rights
be taken away from me and not meaningless ones like right to not wear a seatbelt. If the right to not wear
a seatbelt didn't have an across the board financial impact on things I pay for I'd be more than happy for
natural selection play a role in this.

I also didn't assume the OP doesn't wear his, only that he wanted to turn the buzzer off. Way to many people
make broad assumptions on the internet, I'm not one of them.

Wow, I just wanted to know how to turn off the chime. Sometimes I go thru a drivethru and need to get money out of my pocket to pay for the food. I dont see how that cost anyone any tax dollars if I unhook my belt. And now I dont get to pick how I want to die... Havin fun in a muscle car has got to be one of my top two ways I'd want to leave this world. Its like saying if you have a heart condition its against the law to have sex... My #1 way I'd like to go by the way.... I will never tell anyone on here what to do or how to live they're life. I hope you can give this "idiot" the same respect. Thanks.....

Wow...so I suppose everybody harping about the seat belt never speeds either? Speed limits are set in place to potentially save your life as well... Personally I always wear my seat belt but I don't feel the need to try and rub that in the face of somebody who maybe doesn't. I save that for the important stuff like drinking and driving.

That's the governments fault, not people who don't want to wear a seatbelt.

I'll be sure to order from you guys as soon as the tune is out and bug-free as I decided against the B&G option and prefer yours... but my R/T happens to be a 2013.

Thank you (unless you were being sarcastic!). Don't wanna get too political here because it has nothing to do with parties, but it's very naive to think that governments are there to help and protect you, especially against others, and that the reason for laws is to do just that. The rationale for passing them may be to save the children, your tax dollars, or the whales, but in reality it's kickback time for the corporations pulling the strings of the puppets we think are in charge, and enforcement is a way to fleece the population and keep it in line. That's the way it's ever been, fellow peasants. Even people who are part of the system tend to buy that BS. In fact, the lower on the totem pole they are, the more they believe that they are protecting you... in good part because they're not smart enough to see the glaring contradictions. Sounds a lot like destroying the village to save it, at times.

There's way too many people on soapboxes bent on telling folks how to live their lives and justifying it with their safety or their pocketbook while never looking hard at their own selves.

The OP did not have to explain why he needed to change a setting that even the factory recognizes can be annoying and/or pointless. Some of us, regardless of occupation (yes, mine makes me pop that belt at times for my own safety, and you bet that it's more important to me then than a potential ticket or some guy's thought that I may end up burdening his socialist safety net one day) may not want or need reminders that sound like we won a lottery. We are becoming a decadent society whose people refuse any type of personal responsibility or to think for themselves. We're asking manufacturers to have the car park itself now, for crying out loud.

The reason why people seem to assume sometimes, 6point4, is that there is a history that you may not be aware of. You piled on, but it's SuBXeRo's posts that were getting on my nerves. When he wrecked his car he came here to urge people to keep their traction control on. Now he's saying that you wear your seatbelt or you die. It sounded to me then, as it does now, like those guys who catch the clap at the whorehouse and then rush to church to scare people into not having sex out of wedlock.

Anyone seen The Vanishing Point? Why did some of you buy a Challenger? It's a throwback to an era of (aspiration for) pure freedom, probably one of the last hurrahs of the individualistic power trip that muscle cars can be. It's not for the sheeple even if Dodge made the modern version as sanitized as possible for the times (oh, they know who we are). Toyota really needs to make a Prius that looks cool because I think that some got the wrong car here. It tells you that fast food is is bad for you as soon as you enter the drive-thru, I'm told.

Sorry, Roadwarrior65, I feel I have sabotaged your thread. I mean, made it worse than those who always refuse to answer the question (it keeps coming up, with the same results, do a search and check it out) and prefer to preach, blindly.

I can't wait and am monitoring the forum for updates. I mostly wanna kill the MDS, but all the different settings that come with the Trinity make it an indispensable tool even if you're not power hungry (I'm not).
