How to disable/ active Volvo Seat Belt Alarm with Vida Dice


Tutorial on disabling/ activating Volvo Seat Belt Alarm with Vida Dice
I have got recently my new Volvo S80, from day one the seatbelt warning tone is killing my nerves. I was asking my Volvo dealer if there is a way to disable the tone, but he explained to me that this isnt possible as the belt is an important safety feature. But latest today I cannot live with this safety feature anymore. I searched some Volvo forums, realized I was not the only one that wants to turn off the alarm, and found a forum member managed to disable it without any wiring but with the Vida Dice Volvo diagnostic tool. I have a Vida bought from last year and rarely used it. This morning I took it out, hooked it up to my S80 and had no problem turn off the seat belt alarm. I write the steps out from memory, hoping it will help anyone.
