Hey group, I have a 2021 Ascent Limited. I'm still figuring out all of the bells and whistles, and how to enable and disable those that I want enabled.

I have a 40 pound dog that sits in the backseat (rear bench seat), and depending on how she's sitting, triggers the rear seatbelt alert. At times it can be constant. Is there a way to disable the seatbelt alert beeping? I'm okay with the alert lights on the dash, but the beeping gets excessive and is at times very disruptive, I'd prefer to have the seatbelt alert beeps disabled.

Ah, yes, new to 2021... and buried in the manual.

I suggest putting the seat belt behind the seat, and then clipping it. This will make it more difficult for the doggies to unclip because of the tension of the seat belt. Otherwise, I'd try a seat belt clip (no strap), and push the receiver down so they can't step on it.

This is so stupid. It's bad enough in the front seats when you put a heavy box or bag.

I can't find an owner settable option, but, usually in that case, there's a dealer settable option available, but I haven't found it yet. I'll report back if I do.

Anyone have an issue with the ‘check the rear seat’ words and chime not working? 2020 Touring and since I brought it into the dealer for an oil change and 18k maintenance, it’s not on anymore🤔

If you can figure out how to replicate that, let me know. It drives me bananas.

Just clip in the seatbelt and leave it alone.
This didn’t work for us. Our 80 lb. Doberman still steps on the seatbelt and releases it so it rings constantly. The only solution we came up with is to put a large dog bed on the seat to cover the release and pull the other half of the seat forward So she can’t reach over there or step on the release. She can still wear a seatbelt. It’s a hassle but it works.

That setting is in the instrument cluster set by the steering wheel controls on a '21. Check rear passenger alert off! (not seat belt), was driving me oranges. Our dog sets it off. Since we have all the rear seats removed, I believe it is the brown proximity sensor under the carpet between the second row seats. Peace.

Yup...found it and shut it off last week. I guess I should have come back to report out.
