Pull the seat belt around you and buckle it up. The alarm will then go off. If the alarm stays on, take the car to your Chevy dealer for repair. This repair will be done under warranty.
The seat belt buzzer is there for a reason BUT if you really want to disable the buzzer it only takes a couple of seconds to reach under the drivers seat and JUST UNPLUG the wiring harness plug and guess what-- no more noise. Chevrolet put the buzzer there because of the law but it is up to you to do what is right.
If you only have the 1 key fob the programming must be done with a special Dodge tool (DRB), if you have 1 working fob and want to add a second you can do it yourself. With the key on but engine not running Press and hold the unlock button on the working fob for at least 4 seconds but not more than 10 seconds, within the 4-0 seconds press the panic button then release both buttons, the BCM should chime to let you know it is in programming mode, press any button on each fob to be programmed then turn the key off, if 4 fobs have been programmed it wouln't accept any more until erased by the dealer
Has to be disactivated with a drb 3. Your local Chrysler dealer can deactivate alarm. Although you may have to pay for labor time.

If a person uses a key to unlock an alarmed vehicle, the alarm can be turned off on the 2000 Honda Civic LX by starting the car and putting it in gear. Then, put the car in park and shut the car off. Start the car again and the alarm should go off.
I don't know but mine is doing the same think. Letg me know if you find out.
To turn off the alarm you hold down 'Reset' and press 'Start'
Hope this helps!
The BCM Computer on the car is likely going out. Soon you'll find most of your instrument panel unoperative.
I had the same problem with my 2000 xterra and it turned out to be low battery voltage. Check your battery this is most likely your culprit.
have you tried disconnecting the battery then reconnecting?HI, according to the owners manual; the alarm system will only allow the vehicle to start if the operator opens the doors with the key. Don't know if this will work though
