Dash chime/buzzer location
 
2007 WK 3.7
Can anyone help me with the location of the "chime" or "buzzer" behind the dash? Maybe a service manual or the wiring diagram?

I've had my WK at the dealer 3 times now for the blinking TPMS light (standard 5 sensor system with only an idiot light on the dash) and they can never seem to recreate the problem and can never pull any codes. The light will come on about 1-2 times a day, chime once and blink for about 60 seconds and go out.
I'm going to pull the dash this week and remove the light but also going to do away with the chime too. I can do without the chimes little "other" reminders...:D

I love the Jeep and want to keep it but want nothing to do with the TPMS system any longer.:rolleyes:

The chime is part of the printed circuit board on the guage cluster.I don't think you can remove it.Go the the dealer and get them to shut the TPMS off with the Star Scan tool.I think the code to shut it off is XXXX or FFFF,can't remember for sure,but I know they can disable it with the scan tool.

Unfortunately, I'm done with dealers on this issue as I get the run around about shutting the system down. I called 2 other dealers and inquired about getting the system turned off and both said they wouldn't do it, even if I paid for the time. Something about liability...blah blah blah :(
If the buzzer is on the back of the cluster then it should be a simple removal like I did on my TJ.....Hopefully. :D
