Seat belt warning buzzer
 
Have a new 2011 GC Ltd w/ Hemi. Refuse to wear a seatbelt. It's a personal decision. Anyway, can anyone tell me where the beeper/buzzer is located so I can unplug it? On my last Tahoe it was on the fuse panel under the dash, and yes I saved it and reinstalled before selling the Tahoe.

While I would recommend wearing a seatbelt, the seat belt chime is actually a seperate thing called BeltAlert. If you look in the owners manual, there should instructions to turn it off. not sure about wk2 but on my car its some weird procedure, such as holding unlock button down with drivers door open & pushing the hazard lights lol. Hopefully someone on here will tell you the wk2 instructions. if you don't have the paper manual, try the DVD that came with the car.

This was in another thread and it work for me. 2011 Overland
To remove seatbelt chime
1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and fasten the drivers seatbelt.
2. Start engine, and wait for Seat Belt warning light to turn OFF.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting engine, unbuckle and then re-buckle driver's seat belt at least 3 times, ending with belt buckled.
4. Turn off the engine. A single chime will sound to signify that your life is in your own hands.

Here it is copied and pasted from page 62:

For front passenger seats equipped with BeltAlert, your
vehicle is equipped to detect when it is occupied. The
BeltAlert�� warning system is not activated when the
front passenger seat is unoccupied. The BeltAlert�� warn-
ing system may be triggered when an animal or heavy
object is on the front passenger seat or when the seat is
folded flat (if equipped). It is recommended that pets be
restrained in the rear seat in pet harnesses or pet carriers
that are secured by seat belts and cargo is properly
stowed.
BeltAlert�� can be enabled or disabled by your authorized
dealer or by following these steps:
NOTE: The following steps must occur within the first
60 seconds of the ignition switch being turned to the ON
or START position. Chrysler Group LLC does not recom-
mend deactivating BeltAlert��.
1. With all doors closed, and the ignition switch in any
position except RUN or START, buckle the driver ’s
seatbelt.
2. Turn the ignition key to the ACC/RUN position (do
not start the engine), and wait for the Seat Belt Reminder
Light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle, unbuckle
and then re-buckle the driver’s seat belt at least three
times within 10 seconds, ending with the seat belt
buckled.
4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. A single
chime will sound to signify that you have successfully
completed the programming.
NOTE: Watch for the Seat Belt Reminder Light to turn
on while the seat belt retracts and turn off while re-
buckling the seat belt.

BeltAlert�� can be reactivated by repeating this procedure.

I just can't see why anybody would want to go beltless unless they were tremendously obese.

Over the past 40 some years I have been in 3 accidents where had I been belted in I would have been seriously injured or killed. Back around 1970, I was riding in a dump truck involved in a multi vehicle accident in a tunnel in Boston. As we sat sideways and cars were still crashing, I noticed the man in the car behind us throw off his eyeglasses into the back seat of his car and then throw himself onto the floor of his car. His car went under the truck I was in and when the mess was finally cleaned away, he stood there next to his roofless station wagon, shaken, but with his head attached.
I've had a deer come through my windshield and land on the front seat and I've had a Catapiler front end loader rearend me and drop its bucket on my roof crushing my car. In both of those accidents, I threw myself on the floor and later was able to walk away with my worst injury being a cut finger.
I disagree with government constantly writing laws that they think are going to protect me. Helmet and seatbelt laws should be abolished. The products should be available, but the use should be ones own choice.

If he had enough time to throw his eyeglasses into the back seat then he would have enough time to take off his seatbelt. This all comes down to frame of mind (thinking on his feet) and training yourself for the situation. Iv'e seen many circumstances where the seatbelt saved a life as opposed to taking it...but as you mentioned it can also kill you...but more get killed by not wearing it than wearing it...although those stats aren't always reported.

I did this with the motor running.

Also, this disables both seats FYI.

I think it should be personal choice as well. I think it is funny how the states with the most population seem to have no helmet laws. I guess that is their way of population control, LOL Helmets (DOT approved only) should always be worn! I wouldn't be here today if I had not been wearing my helmet when I flipped over the handle bars and landed straight on my head. The back helmet support kept my neck from snapping in two. I doubt there are many stories were not wearing a helmet saved someones life, lol.

Seat belts would not prevent anyone from laying down sideways opposite of the door. In trucks and old cars you might be able to lay on the floor board, but now it is hardly impossible for anyone to get into the footwells of cars.
