Just a note....I was trying this several times without success...
It finally worked with theses instructions with one added task that I did....
I inserted my keyfob. I have Smart Entry. That's all I use. I never put the keyfob into the car. Apparently, that is necessary for this process to work.... I'm a happy camper now!!!

I just thought I'd pass it along to others that may run into the same problem.


How do I turn off that annoying beeping in reverse?
1. Power on (not necessarily ready, IG-ON will do).
2. Set Trip/ODO to ODO (if it's already set to ODO, you still have to cycle through the options: ODO, Trip A, Trip B, and back to ODO).
3. Power off.
4. Power on to READY (parking brake on).
5. Within 6 seconds, press and hold ODO for 10 seconds or more.
6. WHILE STILL HOLDING ODO *after* 10 seconds, Shift from P to R, then back to P. Now release ODO.
7. You'll see in the trip display "b on" or "b off".
8. Press ODO to toggle.
9. Now power off.

actually, the problem was that you didn't get out and kick the left front tire.

Other obvious fixes are to walk around the car counter clockwise, and sacrifice a chicken.

:? I'm almost positive I turned the beep off without inserting the fob. But it DID take three tries. I just chalked it up to voodoo, and a failure to kick the left front tire.

Mmmm - chicken!

:!: I definitely turned off the reverse beep WITHOUT inserting the fob into the dash slot.

Yep....same here....no fob insertion and it worked the first time without kicking the tire.

I did have a highball of Johnnie Blue in my hand though...

Sorry, the FOB has nothing to do with it. After struggling to disable the beep on a friend's Prius, we finally discovered the magic missing bit of info... which was added to the USER-GUIDE quite awhile ago.

Where did you find those outdated instructions?

Wow - you turned off the beep one-handed! :)
Naw...just told my wife how to do it...while holding the Scotch (its expensive scotch, had to fend off the dog with the other) :D
