Re: Turn off unbuckled seat belt alert?

Pretty simple and takes only 1.5 seconds. Insert the metal end into the buckle. Not only is it super easy and free, but it will stop you from flying through the windshield like a rag doll




I could never imagine driving a vehicle without wearing my seatbelt, but hey whatever you gotta do. Glad I could help

Yes yes. I totally drive with it 100% of the time. It's the times when I am driving from the mail box to the house, or something like driving on my family's land moving stuff and stopping frequently.

Wow...
Quite the presumptuous post.

So you've NEVER unbuckled your seat belt while a vehicle is in motion, even as a passenger for a brief moment??

Disabling the stupid 'nanny' chime is the first thing I do in my vehicles. I wear a seat belt and insist that my passengers wear seat belts, but there is always a brief exception to the rule and I don't need the damn vehicle nagging me for the person to re-fasten their seat belt.

OR as in the case of the original poster, say you stop at the end of your driveway to get the mail. You really don't need to fasten your seat belt to drive 30 yards to your garage, and you definitely don't need the damn chime going off for the next few minutes.

Probably have, but as you stated it would be for a moment so the chime isn't bothersome. I was more so just making a joke. Honestly, I don't care whether this guy wears his belt (well I sorta do lol), and don't care if he disables the chime or not. My post is not helpful any sort of way, I was just being a smart ass. im glad to hear he does wear his belt and I can see someone wanting to disable it for this kind of instances. Makes sense and it's also nice to hear it can be disabled for those that don't want to hear it.

Re: Turn off unbuckled seat belt alert?

With me, I see the chimes as a challenge.

I like to see how few chimes the vehicle can get out from the time I start it to the time I get the belt buckled.

It's like some sort of OCD badge of honor for me to get the belt buckled in 2 or fewer chimes.

Now, that stupid "key fob has left vehicle" chime....I want that thing dead, dead dead.... If anyone can figure out how to safely disable that stupid, stupid warning, you'd be doing a real service to humanity.

The other one I would like to override is the backup warning beeps. Most of the time, I like to have them on, but occasionally I wish I could hit a button to silence them on a case by case basis.

What's nice about thit Grand Cherokee is the parking tones are very soft on the ears and adjustable. If you put the beep settings on low it's nice and quiet and not bothersome at all. On my wife's new Odyssey the beep is a super annoying high pitch tone that is not adjustable and just sucks lol. Love the Grand Cherokee for its customizability.

For me, it's not so much the beeping as much as it mutes the radio when it does it.

There have been a couple times where I was trying to hear a news report while backing up and couldn't hear it properly with the beeping going on. It would have been nice to have a mute button on the touch screen so I could shut it up for that moment. Those moments were during those very descriptive feature stories, so it was extra annoying to be missing that moment.

I wasn't in a position to simply stop backing up and listen, so it was annoying to be trying to back up while straining to hear.

1)*First*get in the Jeep. Close* all doors and windows.*
2) Turn the ignition to the off position.
3)*Then fasten your drivers seat belt.
4) Push the black*ignition start button. The seatbelt* dashboard indicator light* will soon*shut off.

5) Within*45 seconds*of starting the truck, undo and then reconnect your safety belt*three times or more. Once done leave the belt on
6) Now turn off the truck.*
7) Next listen for*a bell* to go off just once*to confirm that the system took the reprogramming of the seatbelt alarm.*
8) Your seatbelt alarm should now be turned off. If it didnt take try it again making sure that you did all the* disabling steps fast enough.

There is an off button for the park sensors beep noise below the Nav/Radio screen.

I turned off the liftgate beep immediately after I took delivery.
