the exact same problem except with the latch for the right rear seat. I was actually outside of warranty but I called the dealer and talked to the service manager. I explained that almost no one ever used that latch and Ive probably had less than 50 cycles on it at the time. The service manager said hed have to charge me 80 plus parts. So I said no thanks then got online and wrote an e-mail to jeep

Theres nothing more annoying than bending down to the glove box and having the seat belt lock up thinking the vehicle has just hit something.
Quote Originally Posted by libertyHopeful Are you saying my jeep has electronic seat belt tensioners that will activate under hard braking Explosive actually. I worked for chrysler in a transportation subsidy and our seat belt tensioners always had to be shipped under haz-mat regulations in the explosive category. If the airbag sensor were to be tripped an explosive charge would be set off in the tensioner
That procedure works. I did it on mine. I hate electronic nannies. I know when my seatbelt is off and theres already a light on the instrument panel indicating so. I dont need an additional audible buzzer. (Not that I advocate driving without your belt its just a matter of principle.)

Wow. I love how this became a morally powered jeep forum. Anyone wanna slow down for just a second and think of the possibilities he may want to shut it off before forcing their oh so right opinion on him. For instance I came across this page because Im currently in the process of helping a friend move and a load on the front seat has caused me to drive 200 miles with the dash beeping at me. Thankfully
i just did it in my 08 JK besides that i also ride a HARLEY which somehow the manufacturer forgot to put the seat belt chime on so i dont have to worry about turning that one off either. haha
Ive been thinking about getting a spare seat belt buckle from a wrecked liberty....keep it in the console and just plug it in when needed -) most often I just buckle my seat belt -)
How to disable the ding ding is in the owners manual - I did it in our 04 RME and if you follow the directions it works perfectly - no more ding ding. You can also disable the HONK when lockingarming your liberty the instructions for this are also in the owners manual. Good Luck.
Quote Originally Posted by Meister the ding ding gets extrodinarily annoying when you just want to sit in the car you turn it on and you have to go through the ding ding even though you are not moving any time soon. Just becasue the car is on does not mean a seatbelt is needed but the car does not know that. of course you have choice of disabling it but I suggest buckling up the passanger side belt to yours if there is noone sitting or just buckling it up and sitting on top of the belt.
point is that only maybe .1% of the total amount of drivers would be in a situation like yours which makes the ding ding ding of the seat belt buzzer a nice reminder for all the rest of us to buckle up. I suppose you dont like the door locks locking at road speed....bet it might be a life saver for some kid out there.
The dealer has to offer seat belt extensions for all new cars (free of charge i believe). They are mentioned in the owners book. They are mainly made for big people to be able to wear the seat belt but i found them handy for this exact item. I have one for my toyota. and it works great. The extension is handy when you are loading boatsskis so you dont have to listen to the dinger It is about a 8inch

Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and buckle the drivers
Quote Originally Posted by Luther I dont mean to sound like a wise a but you might consider wearing the seat belt. They do save lives. Yes they do. But for me it was a pain to listen to that thing while I drove the short distance down to our mail box. I snapped in one of those seat belt extenders that they give to fat people. I can still use the belt when I want but it shut down the chime when I go down the driveway. Dont think Ill get into a head on collision there.

Dont think Ill get into a head on collision there. Im sorry but I would have to agree with luther on this one. I would definatley deal with it on a short drive to the mailbox. Once in a while I will forget to buckle and those chims get on my nerves so I then in turn buckle. Come on how long are you actually in your jeep for on that drive to your mail box ....do you have a 2 mile driveway
Wear the seat belt and it will go out and stop dinging. Inform your friend that the airbags in a vehicle will KILL a person who is not wearing a seat belt. I had 2 days of training on passive restraints last week so the effects are still in my head.
Ditto tell him to put on his seat belt and the light and chime will go away Quote Originally Posted by rob92xj Wear the seat belt and it will go out and stop dinging.

I am not sure why this sticks in my mind (crazy things do all the time ) but I remember years ago hearing about this. It is a safety feature that if enough tension is applied to the belt it triggers something in the retractor so that you have to take the jeep in to verify the seat belt has not been damaged.
Youll need new retractors. In an accident they lock internally and cannot be unlocked. Did the airbags deploy I am not for sure but some seat belt buckles have pretensioners and will need to be replaced sa well.
This may be obvious but maybe try putting the seat-belt on There is a way to turn it off but we dont want you flying out of your jeep and hurting someone standing on the sidewalk if you wreck now do we.

yea its a problem passenger side latch broke while back there 65 bucks at dodge jeeps unlimited has them too eerie colorado is where there at 25 65 bucks if in stock i used 1 small carribeener(think thtas how it spelled) 2 large one worked good till i got new one small one goes on bottom of latch side to floor then big ones and just put belt inside carribeener sorry if spelled wrong they hold really good havent tryied to get in accident though
yeah buckle your gear up I sometimes did this incase I had to stop quick so my gear doesnt end up all over the floor or dash or my lap or you can junk yard a seat belt clip and just plug it in. I think the comp just looks for something in the buckle.
in the owners manual for my 05 there are instructions on how to disable the seat belt chime permanently. i did it when the truck was new and what a pleasure
