There is a way to do it except I do not remeber how. I believe it tells you how to do it in the owners manual. You can try to do a search on here and you may be able to find a link for it. good luck.

2008 F250

Preparation

Apply the parking brake before deactivating/activating the belt minder.[/ol]

Place the gear selector lever in PARK or NEUTRAL (manual transaxle).[/ol]

Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.[/ol]

Close all the vehicle doors.[/ol]

Unbuckle the driver safety belt.[/ol]

Place the parking lamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position.[/ol]

Deactivating/Activating

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)[/ol]

Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately 1 to 2 minutes).[/ol]
3. NOTE: Steps 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off.
For seating position being disabled, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt in the unbuckled state. After this step, the air bar warning indicator illuminates for 3 seconds.

Within 10 seconds after the air bar warning indicator turns off, at a moderate speed, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.

This disables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently enabled. As confirmation, the air bar warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
This enables the safety belt minder feature for that seating position, if it is currently disabled. As confirmation, the air bag warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds followed by another flash sequence of 4 times per second for 3 seconds.[/ul][/ol]

After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete

Or you can do what I did and just buy a dog leash that snaps into the seat belt buckle. This way you can leave it clicked in and never hear the chime or un click it and buckle you seat belt when you want to. Cost just a few bucks on eBay.

LeT me know if you want to see a pic of what I did to stop the chime.

I did it this way because I tried about 5 times to do the procedure and I never could get it to work.

Besides, my wife keeps me on a short leash anyway!
