Great info. Is it the same procedure to reactivate it if desired?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.
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.Nvrmor said:Not really. Not wearing your seat belt only endangers you. Unless you fly out the windshield or roof and land on somebody. :hide:
