Yep. A trip to your local Chrysler dealership and pay them to use their body control module scan tool and shut it off.

The DRB scan tool is used to do all sorts of things including setting the bcm alarm modes {chirping when you lock the jeep}. I wasn't even aware that the doors would lock like that. I think some of the security function are wrapped up with the pcm as well but not sure. My girlfriends wj chirps and aggrevates the hell out of me.

Oh yeah, the electronic gizmo.

The roll'in door locks on the ZJ in question are controlled by the driver door lock modulator as are the factory keyless remotes. On WJ's with the overhead display this can be toggled on or off via overhead console menu settings as can the horn chirps.

Customer preference items that can be changed on 96-98 ZJ's R
Roll'in door locks
Keyless entry drivers door unlock on first press of remote and unlock all doors on second press of remote.
Horn honk when door locked with remote.
Headlights on when wipers are in use (Limited models only)
Low fuel chine when the low fuel light comes on.

My local dealership wanted almost $100 to use the DRB on mine just to program my keyless remote. Needless to say, I am still using my keys.

Some dealerships are crooks like that, We have a few around here as well. If you ever get a chance to stop someone that you know from buying a car there, use it. For a $100 you can just go with an aftermarket keyless entry

Somewhere near you is an established independent car stereo shop, which might have that capability because of remote starter installs. Good luck!

most locksmiths can do it.Here they charge $20 for the remote and programming,or $15 if you have a remote already.
