Ding Ding Ding

I can't frickin stand it! Dealer won't shut off seat belt alarm in my 07, they say legally they can't disarm a dinger in any veh. My question is, "How do I disarm the seat belt dinger on the drivers side of my JK???" And does it effect any other function, like airbags, etc? Anyone know?

There is a simple way to do it (I did right away). The alarm and light will still go on right away. Light will remain, but no more dings while driving.

Here are the steps to deactivate the chime.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and
buckle the driver or front passenger seat belt.

2. Turn the ignition key to the ACCESSORY/RUN position
(engine does not need to be running), and wait for
the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.

3. Within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle, unbuckle
and then re-buckle the driver or front passenger seat belt
at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with the
seat belt buckled.

4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. A single
chime will sound to signify that you have successfully
completed the programming.

How in the crap did you figure that out? Or is that in the service manual?

Also, you can just buckle up, and not be an idiot Mark W.

Yeah, My Tahoe doesn't have any reminders and while I don't like being "annoyed" by seat belt reminders, it does actually force me to wear one when otherwise I might not be as strict. Seriously though, it could really save your life.....and heaven forbid that you are actually safe inside of a vehicle with no tops, and no doors.... -----

that is true. no dealer, be it vehicle or lawn mower can disable a safety feature. keep in mind that if any safety feature is disabled and noticed by the technician they are going to hook it back up. in my mower shop, if any safety feature is missing, diabled, or broken we are required to restore it to working order, if we do not we could lose that particular brand and more.

As a general rule I do wear my seat belt, however, sometimes I don't feel the need to depending on what I'm doing......sometimes its just a pain.

I wear my seatbelt 100% of the time and I feel I don't need to have a chime to remind me. There are times when I'm only moving my car from the garage to the outside to take the top off. I make sure everyone in the jeep wears their seatbelt.

Hi mntnclmbr,

I learned how to shut mine off on this forum. Been off now for about 2 months. I wear mine all the time but hated the ding reminding me, when just moving the car and not in traffic. Now, no more ding. I don't think the dealer will modify your programming of it off back to on and are probably not required to. Might be a different story if you cut the wire to the dinger though. Most safety features on a car are covered by state inspection. In MA, defeating one of those safety features and getting caught when pulled over, results in a moving violation which means more for the insurance company for 6 years. The dinger is not included in the inspection items so that would not be included in the list that would generate a moving violation.

I voted against continuing the seatbelt law when it was on a referendum in MA and was subsequently voted out of law. Our state law makers, in order to get some federal funds for our roads, put it back on the books but you can't be pulled over for it. You can only be cited if pulled over for some other violation. It was a compromise.

I would vote against the helmet law for motorcycles if that came to a vote. These are, IMHO freedom issues. If people are stupid enough to not understand the benefits of wearing them they should have the freedom not to and subsequently possibly win a Darwinian award and be taken out of the gene pool so that future generations may benefit.

Big brother may mean well but they can't and shouldn't try to protect us from ourselves.

BTW, I think I would rather be hanging from my seatbelt upside down in my jeep rather than the alternative without the seatbelt. So even off road I favor them.

Hey JK'n,

Good to hear from you did you go on another vacation or what? Good to have you back. I understand the seat belt usage, I did roll my last Jeep on black ice a few years ago, rolled like a cart-wheel twice - I did not have my belt on however........I learned my lesson (Was in too much of a hurry that eve). Here, we have similar laws, seat belt are a $80 buck fine, (chimes don't matter). I'm rather fortunate here as I'm well acquainted with most state troopers, city police dept., and Sheriffs - My company fund raises for all of them and apart of the associations that go along with them. I've tried to be apart of them for some of the crazy laws that are lobbied for in our state - we don not have a state inspection and should, I'm amazed at some of the junk that rolls down our roads here! The cops do have the option to stop anyone and do the inspection on the road and condemn the car...Anyway, I just wanted the sound to go away, could stand it! Hope the sun is shinning out there, we're great here - "freedom top is off!"

I'd agree with you as long as the law also provides that those who choose not to wear seat belts or helmets give up at least some of their rights to sue others for their injuries and subject themselves to higher insurance premiums (or limited coverage). I am 100% with you on this being an individual liberty issue, as long as none of these idiots or their families expect the rest of us to pay for the risks they take on voluntarily.

mntnclmbr,

I've been away for a week a couple of weeks back. I teach and we have a week in April off. I spent half of it in Philly with a boy scout troop walking around historical places and learning about the history of our country. The second half of the week was on the Appalachian Trail in a place in Pennsylvania called the Pinnacle. Fantastic view. Beautiful day to see it. It was a fantastic week. This is a busy time of year in scouting for me. I'm the business manager this year for a camp in NH so my summer will be booked solid. Hope I can get on the net once in a while to post replies to this forum. I enjoy talking about my jeep, learning from others and helping others too. Cheers.

Is there any way to disable chime while keys are in the ignition (& playing radio) and the drivers side door is open. I like to do the occasional vacuum thing and the chime drives me mad.

Thanks in advance.

Possibly try unplugging the wiring harness from the door. This would simulate no doors and should/maybe would work.
