The Beep has nothing to do with anything other then "put yo damn seat belt on foo"

Thats it.

Watch the WTS light, when it goes out your good to go...

The seat belt reminder is different from the beeps at the begining/ when you turn the key on.

It doesnt tell you when to start, but its not the seat belt. I think were both on the same page.
