Hey guys, I have 2 questions. I did search the manual for both and tried looking around the google, but no luck.

1. Is there a way to disable the seat belt chime? I wear my seat belt 99% of the time, but my brother in law lives literally 2 minutes away and sometimes I don't put it on for very short drives in the subdivision (getting the mail) or something. Anyway to disable to warning chime?

2. I have the 6MT and I always park using the EPB. What happens if the battery dies? Is there a way to manually override the EPB so I could bump start if necessary? Yes I know I can boost the car, but I have a single car driveway and I usually park in front of my wife's Santa Fe. So if I needed to boost it I would have to drive over the front lawn to get around my GTN. Any thoughts? Thanks.

1) Put your seatbelt on. Takes 2 seconds. Statistics even show most accidents happen within proximity of your home. Also, that seatbelt is tied to all of the collision avoidance and mitigation systems, including the airbags. Unless you like the idea of some random thing happening (at low speed or otherwise) and the airbags punching you the fk out of your car or worse, not going off and you concussing yourself on the steering wheel. A sudden stop at *5* MPH is enough force to bang your head on the wheel.. So, no, chime's gonna chime.



2) Regarding the electric brake, unless you've got access to a shop manual you may want to call your local dealer service bay and ask them, since there's nothing in the manual about it like there would be for say, the shifter interlock that cars have. Maybe the next time it's in for service. But considering it's a basic servo mechanism, it won't take much power. I've released the parking brake on my DCT N-Line when the battery was low enough that the dash lights barely came on.



In any case, a jumper box is seriously $50 on Amazon. And it's useful for a lot of other things too (camping trips, etc). So save yourself the headache of getting creative, and just have it on standby.

So you don't know how to do it? Ok thanks. :rolleyes:
