Default Personal Settings 2010 Ram

I have seen questions asked about things like seat belt chimes & many other similar items

Auto Lock Doors Programming
The Auto Lock Doors feature can be enabled or disabled
as follows:
• For vehicles equipped with the EVIC, refer to “Electronic
Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Personal
Settings (System Setup)” in “Understanding Your Instrument
Panel” for further information.
-----------------------------------------------------------
• For vehicles not equipped with the EVIC, perform the
following procedure:
1. Enter your vehicle and close all doors.
2. Fasten your seat belt. (Fastening the seat belt will
cancel any chiming that may confuse you during this
programming procedure.)
3. Place the Key Fob into the ignition.
4. Within 15 seconds cycle the Key Fob from the OFF
position to the ON position a minimum of four times,
ending in the OFF position. (Do not start the engine).
5. Within 30 seconds, press the driver’s door LOCK
switch.
6. Asingle chime will be heard to indicate the feature has
been disabled.
7. To reactivate this feature, repeat the above steps.
================================================== =
Child Protection Door Lock
To provide a safer environment for children riding in the
rear seat, the rear doors (if equipped) of your vehicle
have the child protection door lock system.
To use the system, open each rear door, use a flat blade
screwdriver (or emergency key) and rotate the dial
counterclockwise to engage the lock and clockwise to
disengage the child protection locks. When the system on a door is engaged, that door can only be opened by using
the outside door handle even if the inside door lock is in
the unlocked position.
WARNING!
Avoid trapping anyone in a vehicle in a collision.
Remember that the rear doors can only be opened
from the outside when the child protection locks are
engaged.
NOTE:
• After setting the child protection door lock system,
always test the door from the inside to make certain it
is in the desired position.
• For emergency exit with the system engaged, move
the door lock switch to the UNLOCK position, roll
down the window and open the door with the outside
door handle.
==============================================
ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
A long break-in period is not required for the engine and
drivetrain (transmission and axle) in your vehicle.
Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km).
After the initial 60 miles (100 km), speeds up to 50 or
55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the
limits of local traffic laws, contributes to a good break-in.
Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be detrimental
and should be avoided.
The engine oil installed in the engine at the factory is a
high-quality energy conserving type lubricant. Oil
changes should be consistent with anticipated climate
conditions under which vehicle operations will occur. For
the recommended viscosity and quality grades refer to
“Maintenance Procedures” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle”.
NON-DETERGENT OR STRAIGHT MINERAL
OILS MUST NEVER BE USED.
A new engine may consume some oil during its first few
thousand miles (kilometers) of operation. This should be
considered a normal part of the break-in and not interpreted
as an indication of difficulty.
=======================================
Interior Lights
Courtesy and dome lights are turned on when the front
doors are opened, when the dimmer control (rotating
wheel on the bottom of the switch) is rotated to the far
right detent position, or if equipped, when the UNLOCK
button is pressed on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE)
transmitter. When a door is open and the interior lights
are on, rotating the dimmer control all the way left, to the
OFF detent, will cause all the interior lights to go out.
This is also known as the Party mode because it allows
the doors to stay open for extended periods of time
without discharging the vehicle’s battery.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Plastic Grocery Bag Retainers (Regular Cab
Models)
Retainer hooks which will hold plastic grocery bag
handles are built into the back panel of the cab, behind
the rear seat.
=================================================
personal settings EVIC
Horn With Remote Start
When this feature is selected, a short horn sound will
occur when the RKE transmitter REMOTE START button is pressed. To make your selection, press and release the
SELECT button until a check-mark appears next to the
feature showing the system has been activated or the
check-mark is removed, showing the system has been
deactivated.
Horn With Remote Lock
When this feature is selected, a short horn sound will
occur when the RKE transmitter LOCK button is pressed.
This feature may be selected with or without the Flash
Lamps with Lock feature. To make your selection, press
and release the SELECT button until a check-mark appears
next to the feature showing the system has been
activated or the check-mark is removed, showing the
system has been deactivated.
Flash Lamps With Lock
When this feature is selected, the front and rear turn
signals will flash when the doors are locked or unlocked
with the RKE transmitter. This feature may be selected
with or without the sound horn on lock feature selected.
To make your selection, press and release the SELECT
button until a check-mark appears next to the feature
showing the system has been activated or the check-mark
is removed, showing the system has been deactivated.

I've been wondering about the seatbelt one for a while. I'll be trying it in the morning for sure. Thanks!
