Page 322?

Maybe the book would be shorter and more readable if they didn't fill it with so much fluff and BS such as "don't suck on the tailpipe while running" safety messages.
You can thank lawyers and lawsuits for all the "don't suck on the tailpipe" crap.

I prefer to blame the idiots that sucked on the tailpipe and then sued the automaker over it.

It would be a good option to have when at a campground. Been a number of times when someone will bump into someones car and sound off a nice annoying horn alarm (great at 2AM when the owner is the last to wake & disable ). Especially true when you hike or fish out of earshot, while others are near the car and would be disturbed by the alarm. Still nice to be able to throw something like a camera or phone behind a locked door.

Hopefully this will do what you want.
No, disabling the horn upon lock was one of the first options I changed. For those complaining about the length of the manual... just grab the digital versions of the JGC & Uconnect manual on this site. Keyword search gets you where you need to go quickly.

Bumping into a JGC won't set off the factory alarm, it's not a motion sensing alarm. Not quite sure how you throw something behind a locked door, and how that sets off an alarm. What exactly do you mean by that?

Don't think that ever happens without a lawyer. If it weren't for the lawyers the tailpipe suckers would be eliminated by natural selection.

I think he means he still likes to lock things in, even if no alarm is set.

Re: Disabling 2014 Overland alarm... while locked

Which brings me back to the question, why disable the alarm and have the doors locked? I'm probably being dense here, but I don't understand the reason. The alarm won't sound unless someone is actually trying to break into the vehicle.

It's magic maaaann.

Bill was correct. I meant placing the phone in the car and then locking the doors. Perhaps the motion sensor inside makes it a moot point. It has always been someone else's car when this happens.

It was more of a precaution hoping not to impact others. I might just be looking for a feature no-one else would want.

Hey I believe in magic!
As for "looking for a feature no one else would want", I think it's a feature that doesn't exist because it's not needed. There have been discussions on the forum about the JGC not having the motion sensor alarm by folks who think it's necessary. Many of us are glad it doesn't.

Here's one place you might want the alarm disabled (at least if you #@&*%#@ paid #@&% hunderd dollars for the %&#@ option like I did)
If you are parking in a place where lots of people are running straight pipes on Harley Davidsons, the alarm will be going off way more than you might be comfortabe with.
But you can disable the alarm...I think you just hold the button in for a few seconds with the ignition on....That msy not be ecactly right, but it is in the manual....and the crappy user guide too

After reading this I had to go out to my Jeep and lock the doors with the inside power lock button and check that the alarm light was on, and the alarm was armed, and closed the door and bounce the vehicle up and down by the bumpers as hard as I could to see if the alarm would go off. Nothing!!! I used my foot on the hitch to really get it rocking. Nothing!!! I yanked on all the door handles. Nothing!!! There is NO motion sensor in the '14 JGC from the factory. The only way to set it off is to break into the vehicle. Rocking, touching, loud noises, yanking the handles will not set it off. If anyone cares to bring their unmuffled Harley over to my garage, we'll try that too. In fact, I have a few friends with said Harley's whom I'm sure would be happy to test this out the next time they're over. If you have an aftermarket alarm system that has a motion sensor, then you must live up the street from me, because I hear your alarm going off in the middle of the night all the time.
