Thanks for the responses. I'll go back and read the manual - it kinda confused me the first time. I was just worried when the light didn't come on when the kids were sitting up front.

Another poster is right though - it's not recommended that kids sit up front anyway. Of course, I don't think it is my or anyone else's business where your kids sit when they are in your Jeep - and I certainly don't care where they sit. But, that is the recommendation from various safety experts, for what it's worth.

Yeah, they almost always sit in back, but I have had a few occasions where I needed to fold the rear seats down to get big stuff in the back, and for whatever reason our local cops don't like the kids riding duct-taped to the roof or left at home alone. I can't figure that one out.

Again, I think it would have been nice to have a key override like the older TJ, but they didn't ask me before they started building these things.

The process for getting rid of the warning bell is detailed in the manual and also in another thread somewhere in this forum. As I dont have they manual in front of me I can only attempt to instruct you. I beleive what you have to do is as follows:

First, Start with the car off and your seat belt buckled.
Second, Turn the car to the on posions (or start the car either way)
Thrid, Unbuckle and buckle your seat belt at least three times....ending with the seat belt buckled. (once this is complete you should hear another bell to let you know that it worked)

The Light on the dash will remain on no matter what.

Again please cheak your manual as I'm not 100% on this.

Yeah, I did this, but it doesn't work the way people make it out to sound.

It disables the bell from going off when you are going down the road and unhook your belt, or from going off later if you never hooked your belt in the first place - but it doesn't keep the bell from going off for 7 or 8 times when you first start the car, which is what I was most interested in.

I followed the procedure, I got the little "chime" that says "OK, I accept your command", so I assume I did things correctly - but of course, it is always possible that I did not. Has anyone else been able to use this to keep the seatbelt bell from going off at all, even when you first start the car without the belt being connected?
