I turned mine off. I have a 2012 4 dr also.

Here are the steps to deactivate the chime (picked this up from another forum, should be in the owner's manual, too):

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. (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.


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.
GlockDude and carltonmoore like this.

Great info. Is it the same procedure to reactivate it if desired?

Why not just wear the seatbelt?

Aside from saving you from a worse accident, buckling the seat belt on your JK is essentially closing a switch. To remove a seat from a JK, you must first disconnect a the harness from under the seat. There are connectors, one of those is for the seatbelt.

How about just wearing your seat belt. I am a firefighter/paramedic and would hate to scrape your body of the road because you have been ejected from your jeep. Stay safe people.

Maybe he is just driving a hay trailer around on his own property at 5 miles an hour

P.S... This also works on the Pre-2012 JK's.

Maybe, but most hay trailers aren't regularly towed by Jeeps.

Maybe he is 40 yrs old, been driving for 20+ years, and all of his previous vehicles did not have a annoying chime- to tell you to wear your seatbelt. Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't-maybe he's a she-who cares.....

Not really. Not wearing your seat belt only endangers you. Unless you fly out the windshield or roof and land on somebody.

Having your seatbelt on keeps you behind the wheel, so you can reach it and possibly effect some kind of control of your Jeep, maybe even regaining control and preventing it from hitting me or someone I know.

Lol!

I will say that in that particular spill, I was on the bike all the way until came to rest!

Sand on a Adventure sucks!

Note that on a bike your legs are wrapped around it and hands clinching the handle bars right up until the point where regaining control is impossible. And, while it still dangerous to have 550 pound motorcycle running around driving itself? It could happen I guess? A 3500+ pound Jeep, with massive bumpers and huge tires... Ya it's the same thing.

Harnesses for motorcycles! ;-)

In almost all situations, I always wear a seatbelt in a vehicle or on a tractor or backhoe.

There is one situation though, when I never wear a seatbelt in the Jeep or on a tractor.

Driving or working near a deep water hazard, never wear a seatbelt, IMHO.

As a lifelong seatbelt wearer, it is ingrained in my brain -- I can no more drive without a seatbelt than I can pee without zipping down my pants first. But every time I stop at Chick-fil-A for a chicken biscuit in the morning, I unbuckle my belt to get out my wallet as I'm placing the order. Then we creep slowly forward for several minutes to the pickup-and-pay window. Guess what chimes the entire time? I don't want to reinstall the belt then take it off again to repocket my wallet when finished paying. So yeah, as soon as I'm home from the beach I'll disable that annoying reminder that the gov't. doesn't want me to be allowed to make my own damn decisions.

Thanks for the instructions...

Right on, similar here! So what is the remedy for the 2014 JK's? Tried as described here but didn't do it for mine... THX!

My roommate sent me this link. I don't mind wearing mine. My dog rides with me a lot (I'm a vet) and if he sits right it won't stop! Haha

Thanks. This worked great. The seat belt chime gets annoying if I am slow driving on private property for any reason, getting in and out of my Jeep.
