How to Disconnect a Seat Belt Alarm in a Jeep Commander

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

Chrysler (parent company of Jeep) does not recommend deactivating your seat-belt alarm; nevertheless, they offer a procedure to do so. The seat-belt warning chime turns on once you reach eight miles per hour with the driver-side seat belt unhooked. A dash indicator also appears, displaying the seat-belt icon. You can disconnect the seat-belt alarm, but not the dash-indicator icon. Keep in mind that 49 out of 50 states have laws requiring drivers to wear seat belts.

1

Turn your ignition off and buckle the driver-side seat belt.

2

Turn the ignition to "On." It's not necessary to crank the engine.

3

Unbuckle then buckle the driver-side seat belt three times within 10 seconds. End with the seat belt unbuckled. This must be done within 60 seconds of turning the ignition to "On."

4

Turn the ignition to "Off." You'll hear a chime, indicating that the alarm has been turned off. Repeat the process to reactivate the seat-belt alarm.
