Yeah, I never understood the interior reverse beep in the Prius. First thing I did when I got my '06 Prius was to disable it. At least they made that accessible.LeftieBiker wrote:You folks should be glad you aren't driving a Prius with a stubborn primary driver who won't get the settings changed.

I HATED that about the Prius. I never got it turned off because I never went back to dealer for anything, but I should have.LeftieBiker wrote:You folks should be glad you aren't driving a Prius with a stubborn primary driver who won't get the settings changed.

Thanks Phil. This was very easy to do.Ingineer wrote:Just unplug the connector to the VSP. This would be good to do when you are in there to change the cabin filter. It's located over the glovebox housing, and you can access it by removing all the screws and pulling the glovebox housing out.raja33 wrote:Is there a simple way to cut the wire to the VSP speaker. I understand that it would disable charging and other beeps - I am of the opinion the fewer noises the better.
I looked under the hood and couldn't spot the speaker in the vicinity of the left front bumper.
My vehicle is leased, so I would like to reconnect the cut wire when I return the vehicle to Nissan
VSP module is shown in red. Connector is yellow.
Can you give me some more details on this one? I only want to disable the reverse beep, and keep all other sounds, sounds like you figured out how to do it.GlennD wrote:I like the blind person warning but hate the reverse beep. I just used a normally closed relay connected to the backup light to open the speaker.
I had a guest here last weekend and I was surprised how bad the Leaf back up beep is. I have not heard it for over a year.
