lambsb So sorry to hear my heart sank when I first saw that hope everyone is OK. I know losing the Jeep will leave a Jeep shaped hole in your life. It did mine when we lost our first XJ.

TNcougarTJ With a little help from LilYeller and Dragonii, I changed up the interior. Painted the dash and door panels to match the rest of the spice and green Sahara theme.

Marcwakefield22 Maybe it's engine noise coming through the speakers due to faulty wiring? Ha

Maybe something has just shifted or loosened up (crossing my fingers)! I'll have to look when I get some downtime.

Any feedback or ideas are appreciated. Also I have the stock system in their if that makes a difference.

cajunhillbilly Here's what I found. I haven't tried any of this yet. Copied from another site.

Turn seatbelt chime OFF COMPLETELY!!!


1. turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and buckle your seat belt while sitting in the drivers seat.
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. unbuckle and then re-buckle your seat belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with theseat belt buckled. then start the jeep.
4. turn the ignition key to the OFF position. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.

Next time you start the jeep, you’ll hear the initial fasten seat belt chimes, but the continuous chiming reminder will be turned off. the light in the dash will remain on, though.

Turn ESP OFF COMPLETELY
1. Turn jeep on
2. Set to 4hi
3. Set parking brake
4. Make sure steering wheel is centered
5. Turn wheel to the right, 180 degrees, JEEP logo should be upside down at this point - hold ESP off button for 7 seconds, you may hear a chime at 5 seconds(and ESP OFF may show up on the speedo), but keep holding for 7 seconds!!!!
6. Turn wheel back to center then left 180 degrees, JEEP logo should be upside down at this point - hold ESP off button for 7 seconds, again, hold for 7 seconds!!!
7. Turn back to center, and hold ESP for 7 seconds.
8. Turn Jeep off

Autolock Doors At 15 MPH

1. Open the driver door, sit in the driver seat, and close the driver door.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position (without starting the vehicle) and then back to OFF. Repeat this step three additional times (for a total of four key ON/OFF cycles).
3. Within 10 seconds of switching the ignition switch to the OFF position for the last time (at the end of the fourth cycle in the above step), press the driver interior door lock switch to LOCK.
4. A single chime will be heard to verify that the customer programmable toggle of the rolling door locks was successfully completed.
Steps 2 and 3 must be completed within 10 seconds.

NOTE: When toggling the rolling door locks (customer programmable), the toggle that happens will be from the last state of the rolling door locks. If the rolling door locks were enabled, after the toggle process, they will now be disabled and vice versa. There is no telltale to inform you of which state the rolling door locks are in.

The guy just gave it to me.

I took a grinder to the head of the bolt, and then on the side up against the tub, I added a thick rubber patch so it doesn't scratch the paint

Comes in a roll of about 16 feet which turned out to be just enough for one long one down each side and one in the front and back.

I wired them through a relay into a SPDT switch from OTRATTW and made one throw for on and the other to come on when the doors open as courtesy lights.
Stole the idea from a guy on the grand Cherokee forum. Heres the link to his write up.
