The chime comes from the BCM module. It is in the center of the dash. You would need to remove and disassemble the BCM and break the circuits to disable the chime. There are no steps to perform this being there would be legal issues if a tech did this, so there are of course no manufacturer steps to do this task.

Hello again Chris here,

  1. I have to assume you were not pleased with my help, because you have not replied or rated the post.
  2. What would you like to do regarding your question now?
  3. Do you still need help? Please reply I want you to get equal to or more than what you paid for.
  4. This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. That can prevent me from being able to post answers to your replies.

Thanks Chris

Hey Chris,
The answer you provided was interesting but not helpful. I have since learned that simply buckling the seat belt and then getting into the seat will eliminate the pesky beeping. I also learned that getting a Kia seat belt from a junkyard, removing the metal part and stuffing it into the seat belt holder will accomplish the no-beep mission. I'd sooner not pay anything more beyond the $5 that I paid to post the question. Thank you, ***** *****

Sorry I misunderstood the question. You asked how to disable the chime which I took as how to make the chime not work.
