De-activate seat belt chime and auto door lock.

I've got a 2015 Unlimited Rubicon and want to know if the seat belt chime and auto door lock can be de-activated. Other vehicles I've had, you can deactivate the seat belt warning chime (the warning light on the dash stays on) and also the automatic door locks after the vehicle starts to move. Usually through a sequence of turning on the key and activating certain switches, you can activate or deactivate these functions. I've looked in my Jeep owners manual and can't find anything on this. Is there a way to deactivate these or can the dealer do it? Thanks.

There's a little dance that you do to deactivate the seatbelt chime. Do you have the evic?

Found this -
DO NOT START THE JEEP.
-Get in.
-Buckle-up
-turn the key to ACC on.
-Once the seatbelt dummy light goes out, unbuckle and buckle 3 or more times ending with the seatbelt buckled.
-turn off and remove the key.
You should hear a confirmation tone.

Why would you want to disable either safety feature? As a survivor of a head on collision on the Interstate, I can fully attest to the need to be belted in and all I had was a seat belt (1966 vehcile). I got by with only 13 stitches and a broken nose. Fortunately I was able to reduce my speed with braking although the drunk driver that hit me didn't slow down, he wasn't doing 70 either.

It has been proven that locked doors are less prone to popping open in a collision than unlocked. Plus when you open the drivers door, all doors unlock as well.

Because it is silly to have to listen to a seatbelt chime or buckle up while driving 5 mph from the gate of my farm to my hunting cabin.

As I said in my posting; I do not want to deactivate the warning light. Just the audible chime. I work at a local airport fixing airplanes and use my Jeep as a work vehicle. I am constantly going from aircraft to hangers to aircraft. Just like the guy with the hunting cabin, I get tired of listening to the damn thing. If you choose to drive on the roads without your seatbelt on and got hurt because of it, that's your business.

To the rest of you that had constructive inputs, thanks for the help. Hope to see you out on the trail someday.

Disable seat belt chime as follows:
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 the seat belt buckled. then start the jeep. (i don't know if starting is necessary, but i did it)

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

Door locks as follows:
Press menu to get into your EVIC (Electronic Vehicle Info Ctr), press and release MENU till you get to Personal Settings. Use the up or down button to get to Door Locks. Press and release SELECT until OFF appears

Follow the steps above. It took me a few tries to get it to work. I agree, poking along dirt roads I can't stand wearing my seatbelt.

I'm going to give this a try on mine. My 43 lb puppy likes to ride shotgun and he causes the chime to ding off and on. He just crossed the weight threshold yesterday.

Get that dog out the front seat and properly restrained in the back.

Ask my dead Aunt why this is important.

if you have the Uconnect option you can turn off the auto locks in the settings. If not, then the dealer can turn it off.

back in the day, you could turn off the seatbelt chime with the procedure described in post #3 above, but I seem to recall that Jeep put a stop to that. You can try it and see if it will work on a 2015. If not, the dealer can definitely deactivate the chime, but not the light (page 50 of the owner's manual)

I appreciate your concern but I've kept all my dogs over 50 years of driving riding shotgun. Many of my trucks didn't even have back seats...

Plus 2 of my other current vehicles (32 Ford 3 Window Coupe and a Corvette) don't have back seats either. He rides in them, too.

Azrat, I think you are right. I tried the above "fix". No success chime. I guess I'll give my local dealer a call today.

Of course the dealer can't accept liability liability so it's off to the pull a part recycler to cut off the male end of a seat belt.

Works on my 2015s, but sometimes does need a refresh of the process for (also happened on the previous 2012 Rubi) for whatever reason, including possibly sometimes dealers' activities might reset it.

I've been doing it on all mine because the JKU DDs work on ski hills setting up race gear so in/out 5 mins at a time, and the JKs end up doing the 2km cottage run to the gate then to 'super' mailbox and back.

Can't say if there's a specific trick to it working or not or if it was disabled later in 2015? JKU's a mid-year Winter A-X edition the JK a few month earlier/older fall build, so dunno.

Will that work on a 2015 with the EVIC? I know it works on a 2009.

I can't speak for it working or not working on any particular year models other than on ours. I can tell you that, at this time, this procedure has worked on our 2017 JKU and the seat belt reminder has been deactivated since about February of 2017. The light is still on, the illuminated indicator on the instrument cluster.

Based on the illuminated indicator on the dash, I would assume that the seat belt status is still reported to the black box accident recorder which is integrated in nearly every vehicle on the market these days.

Yep, as noted just above your post, works on both my 2015 JK and JKU with EVIC.

I traced the size of the seat belt buckle on a piece of paper and went to the junk yard and bought 2 identical ones which shut off everything and can be easily removed if one wants to use the seat belt.

So I tried the 3 click fix once more and I think it worked this time. My dog hasn't set off the dinger since.

Turning off the seat belt chime worked great on my 2013 JKRU. Too bad that option isn't in the EVIC...

I did mine in my other vehicle. I always wear mine so I do t need the reminder. Problem was with two kids while traveling, there are times my wife unbuckled to help the kids get food, or eat, etc. I don't need it constantly chiming at me.
