Vehicle overspeed chime... WTF!?!? can I disable?

Ok, just bought a 97 zj LTD 4.0 two nights ago... As soon as I pass 75 mph... I get a constant chime that will not go away till I go under 75.
WTF! I never heard of this. Anyone else? Nothing shows up on the info display.
Can I disable the chime?
Thanx in advance!
-Andre

Did the ZJ come from a fleet? Sometimes they install aftermarket speed monitoring equipment to keep their employees from speeding. A friend works for an oil company and they have a policy that they can't drive over 55mph. If they go 1mph over, they lose the ability to drive company trucks so they always drive 50mph - even on the interstates

Did not get to look at the tag on the door yet, will look at the jeep in a few. The chime comes from the factory speaker... same "dong dong" you hear when the door is open, yea thats it.
