Greetings! Longtime jeep owner here but first time in a Wrangler. Was really close to getting a 4 door Rubicon, but ended up taking home a 2017 Unlimited Winter Edition with all the bells and whistles last weekend.

Loving it so far but in the past couple of days after cold starts the jeep is giving off a series of beeps (really sound like sirens) upon startup. Is this some kind of diagnostic system? I couldn't find any information in the owner's manual about it and to my knowledge it doesn't have an alarm system.

Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks!

May be all those bells and whistles you paid for. LOL. Seriously I have never heard anything like that before.

I am waiting to hear back from my sales agent. Spoke with someone in the service department who was predictably unhelpful. He said they don't (typically) put alarms on their vehicles and I would probably have to bring it in to get it looked at.

Could this be something from the Uconnect headunit? It is hard to pinpoint where the sound is coming from, but it sounds like somewhere in the middle under the dash.

I'm not certain they come with them, but could it be the anti-theft of the head unit? Maybe something is loose causing it to believe it's being pulled.

Hi Winter44,

What an interesting noise... Most likely we will need to refer you to your dealership for an official diagnosis but I've also sent your video over to our engineering team to see if they have any insights. I'll let you know what I find out!

Hi @Winter44,

I received some follow up from our audio engineers, from your video they do not believe this noise is coming from a factory part. They believe it could be from an after market alarm however they can't be sure without seeing the vehicle in person. We would recommend visiting your local dealership for an official diagnosis of this noise, they will be best able to offer further assistance. Feel free to send us a PM with any additional questions!

So are we to assume that the Jeep dealer installed an aftermarket alarm on a brand new Wrangler, and didn't tell the new owner? :awesome:

Wow Andrea, that's awesome! I was able to pass this info along to my dealer and get my problem resolved without having to take my vehicle in.

Yep, that was it. Apparently it was one of the dealer add ons which when I purchased the vehicle I said I wouldn't pay for any add ons. Guess they forgot all about it and I obviously knew nothing about it either.

When I called in they had it deactivated remotely and my salesperson tried to play it off by telling me they just end up killing your battery anyway LOL.

Kinda messed up that the dealer installed something to a brand new vehicle that they can be remotely deactivated. Makes you wonder what else the dealers do to the vehicles before you take delivery.
