How do you disable the horn beep when locking the doors?

Anyone know how to reprogram the WK2 so that the horn does not beep when you lock the doors with the key fob or with the button on the exterior door handles? I hate the beep. I was able to disable it in my KJ by following some song & dance with the key in the ignition, IIRC, but the WK2 doesn't have an ignition tumbler, so I'm not sure how to do it. Nothing in the owner's manual. Hopefully it doesn't take us back to ten years ago when a dealer had to do it.

Is it possibly like WK whereby that stuff can be programed within the EVIC?

Yeah, it's in the EVIC, sorry for the wasted post. When I was flicking through the paper manual in the glove box I didn't see it, but I just read all about it in the PDF manual from jeep.com.

Re: How do you disable the horn beep when locking the doors?

you can customize your settings by using the arrow keys on the left side of the steering wheel. the little screen in between the speed and rpm gauges will show you your options, you can show speed, show fuel econ., engine info, rain sen. wipers ect, auto lock on exit, ect...

Haha, I remember going back to the dealer in '96 when I bought my 1st Grand Cherokee to have him disable the honk, stealthy is the way to go!

I went to the dealership to turn mines on, along with having my auto lights stay on 60 sec after I shut her down. I don't care who sees me

I was able to control several options on my '05 Liberty with the remote fob. Check your owner's manual.
