How do you stop door open chime when in ACC?
 
Hi all,

Does anyone know how to stop the door open chime, when you are stopped and the ignition is in ACC position? (Besides closing the door)

Not tried it, but what if the car is in park?

Yep car is already in park, engine not running. It's just in accessory mode and chiming away that the door is open.

I just noticed there's another thread on this too ... http://www.jeepgarage.org/f73/is-there-a-setting-to-turn-off-the-chime-when-the-door-is-open-15130.html ... appears to just be the drivers door that this happens.

You can pull out the button and put the FOB into the ignition, Worked for me the other day.

Closing the door seems to be the only way to stop it. it bugs me as well when I am cleaning the car with the radio on.

Not sure how to fix this on my WK2, but I remember my old KJ had the same problem (It's a Jeep thing), and pretty sure we fixed it by removing a fuse or the wire to the chime.
I daresay the technology on the WK2 with the computer and CANBUS wiring, it may not be as easy. For now, I just shut the door.

I had this in an old toyota - it was one of the first mods I did - it involved opening the dash and cutting a wire. I imagine the solution here will be similar, but as scarps pointed out, it may be a bit more difficult.

Cleaning the car yesterday....no chime with front passenger door open!! Only the drivers door. I think this might be an oversight with the car design (being based on an American RHD platform) however something that might be fixable with a TSB/Flash?

I doubt it is an oversighte - they have them to remind you not to leave your key in the car, so the passenger door being open isn't going to reflect that risk.
