Hi I just purchased an 2005 Itec in Australian and tried to turn off
the reverse beeps with the instructions for the North American model,
but sadly didn't work.

My query is: Is there a way to override or turn off the reversing beeps
in the Australian model? It's a 2005 Itec

  Thanks heaps :)

Um, what's an Itec?

The procedure listed on the 'net for removing the reverse beep on the
2004-current Prius only works on the North American (US/Canada) models.
 It does not work on other models (Australia, UK, Europe, etc.).
However, the seatbelt beep removal procedure does work outside of North
America.

Over on the Prius-Europe yahoogroup, they have identified the wire that
would need to be cut to disable the reverse beep, but as of yet I don't
think that anyone has been ambitious/daring enough to cut it to find
out.
