1996 Ford Ranger

I want to get rid of the ringing alert when driving - actually I want it to go away for ever. I live on an island and this old truck has an “island only” registration and will never have to pass inspection again.

Do you mean the seat belt warning? You could get a clasp at a junkyard and plug it in. Dumb not to wear it but it will get rid of the warning light and ringer.
