Did you guys know you could disable the seat belt chime?

I picked up this "trick" from Jeep Forum, and someone reposted it on JK Forum and they are taking to it like Charlie Sheen to hookers and blow. Anyways, here's how you disable the annoying chime. Now the light will still be on, and you'll get one intial chime to remind you to buckle up, but you won't get a ding every 10 seconds.

Get in and buckle up. Insert key and turn key to on (do not start). Wait for the warning lights to cycle. Undo and redo the seat belts 3 time in 10 seconds finshing up buckled. Turn the key to off. If you hear a chime, then you did it right. You get the seat belt light on, but no warning chime every 10 seconds.

Every time you get in the Jeep or just once and it's disabled until something resets it...like the battery gets disconnected, etc?

Thanks!

I think the dealer must have done this for me or I accidentally did somehow since mine never chimes more than once. (thank heavens)

Not sure, but I think that's all mine does, too. I always wear a seatbelt, anyway...seen too many ejections and mangled bodies from those who didn't when I worked for newspapers.

I posted the instructions in the "what did you do to your jk today" and someone copied it and pasted it to a new thread in Jk-forum and it was like they learned the secret of life. I just wanted to make sure this forum wasn't left out.

lol...I'll bet the thread here and the one there are VERY different. I'll have to look at it later.

It IS surprising info, though. I didn't think you could turn off the seatbelt warnings short of snipping some wires.

knowing what we know now about wearing your seatbelt while driving, why would you want to disconnect it? seatbelts save so many lives, its like muscle memory for me.... just sayin, i'd rather be safe than sorry

Nobody's talking about disconnecting the seatbelt itself; just the annoying chime.

Your dog drives? My 09 doesn't recognize the passenger not wearing a seat belt.

I always wear mine. Yes, in a 2012, the passenger seat will trigger the alarm. Sometimes he tries to change gears but so far he has never gone for the steering wheel or the gas peddle.

yeah the 2011 passenger triggers as well, I like having the chime disabled just so that as I'm leaving a parking lot, I don't have to deal with the beeping as my wife and I put on our seatbelts. I mean it's no deal breaker if I couldn't disable it, but being able to makes me love my jeep even more

Here's an easy fix. Put it on first. Putting it on for me is so automatic that I find myself putting it on just to pull out of the garage, then I feel dumb.

If your ever working out of your jeep having to hop into it and drive 500 or so yards at a time across a field you would be glad someone posted this.

its more the passenger than anything, I know when my wife is driving, I might usually take longer to get buckled up, simply due to setting up the gps, or taking shit out of my pockets. I mean it's completely instinctive for me to always be buckled up, but more times than not we will start driving without being completely settled in. Like I said though, it's always just as we're leaving parking spots, and by the time we get moving at a speed where the seatbelt would actually matter, its always on. Again, doesn't really matter, but one less chime makes me love the jeep long time

Your not going to win.

You will die not buckling your belt as soon as you settle your arse in the seat.
Guess that means me too "just sayin"

got the mod done about 10 months ago via reading the OM....

still looking for a way to have radio on/door open without chime.

I do chores around the estate that require the 'hop in/hop out' routine .....and the stupid chime doesn't seem to recognize that condition.

With the GPS insisting I don't enter data while driving and the seat belt program set up, it's getting so I don't have anything but *driving* to distract me....

yep One of the first mods I did. In the Great state of New Hampshire, wearing a seatbelt is a personal choice. The freedom to make your own decision as an adult is still alive on that one here..

Although I always wear mine on the road, we travel miles on Back woods roads stopping every couple miles with our waders still on to cast a few flies at different pools along the river. Its nice not to hear the annoying chime during that time.

A poor work around would be to unplug to door harness to disable the chime. Obviously you would lose some functionality, but its quick enough to unplug and replug

That's something I still need to do to my truck. I personally hate the message and plan on snipping the wire to disable it permanently. And there's plenty of times I'm using my truck off road or even in a drive through and it'll chime. I'll wear it on the road when driving, but off road I prefer not to.

Thanks for posting this. I use my seatbelt. But I don't need an annoying nag reminder for minutes on end!... Sometimes I dont put it on until I am down the small road here a bit. The sequence noted above worked great for me today.

Yep did this a couple of days ago. While I always wear a belt we all know there are times situations where you don't and man is it nice to not have to hear that ding. works like a charm

You can take a screw driver and activate the latch tricking the jeep to think the door is closed. Just remember to click the latch open before you try and close the door.

Don't forget about unbuckling just to get your wallet out at a drive through or driving on the beach or offroading.
