I must admit, this does not work as well as one might think.650iOzBoy said:Put your seatbelt on before starting the ignition. No chime. Just do it. You may not like that but at least that won't drive you as mad. :dunno:
Hmmm. Is the chime programmed differently between countries? Here's my version. When I unlock the car (either by Comfort Access or button on fob), sit down on driver's seat, insert fob (or not insert) into slot, hit brakes and press start/stop button without seatbelts on, the chime sounds twice only. If I drive off without the seatbelts on, it starts to sound non-stop. If I have the seatbelts on before hitting brakes and press start/stop button, then no chime.chuck92103 said:I don't know if you noticed or not, but you just have to get the key with a couple inches of the ignition and the chime starts. So I usually end up with 3 or 4 chimes before my seatbelt is fastened. If BMW would have just delayed the chime for 5-10 seconds this would not be an issue for most.
Yeah, last October I found that out and when I met Beewang the first time I showed him. It made me hopeful that we'd be able to retrofit at least the ignition start function of "comfort [t] access." Apparently a no go (literally and figuratively). I also posted it here some time ago but I am too lazy to search for it again.chuck92103 said:I must admit, this does not work as well as one might think.
In the 645, I press the fob, unlock the door. I get in, I still have the key in my right hand. I cannot fasten the seat belt until I put the key somewhere. Ah yes, I will put it in the ignition.

just take a deep breathe, it'll be OK...:angel:Steffsig said:I want to take a hammer and smash it. I can not handle getting in to my car and have this thing chime at me 10 times before i go anywhere.
Indeed. I can't figure out why and when it will chime. I turn off the engine. I press the button to unlock the doors. (I don't like the double pull.) I take the fob out of its totally redundant holder. I undo the seatbelt. I open the door. CHIME. CHIME. WTF? :dunno: Can't BMW AG's pusilanimous lawyers leave me alone already? It's only a frigging car! It's not my frigging life. Are angels being given their wings?What annoys me is the ridiculous action of the chime when exiting the car.
Stop engine, remove key, remove seatbelt, open door (in rapid sequence): BLEEK, BLEEK.
So you would think, but occasionally I do all of these trhings, and maybe even turn off the headlamps or open the trunk from the inside (to get out the briefcase stuffed with $100 bills to deposit at the bank), and THERE ARE NO CHIMES RINGING! WTF!?:angel: everytime you exit the vehicle.
