My girlfriend just got a prius. Nice car.....

How do you stop the beeping sound when you put the car in reverse? Its getting annoying.

Thanks.

If you do a search you should find the answer, this has been asked before! I don't recall the steps, I think they may involve sacrificing a chicken, but it can be done!

For myself, I just decided to get used to it.

Part of the ritual (which does include a chicken) is getting out of the car and kicking the left front tire.

I like the beeping, now that I know it's not waking up my neighbors.

Yah, but John's isn't complete. He forgot the part about the chicken, and kicking the tire.

Depends - is your Prius a North American model, or is it a 2004+ Prius outside of the US and Canada? You can only turn it off on North American models.

You may need to try it a few times to get the timing and procedure right...

Does anyone know how to turn off the reverse beep for a European 2005 model ?

supposedly, you need to cut a particular wire, but so far on the groups no one has been willing to try it...
