Annnoying seat belt ding

Does anyone know a way to turn off the ding? I tried to find it in the owners manual but with no luck. I know I have found out how to do this before from the owners manual but its not in the one for my compass.

Thanks Eric

The Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) can be enabled
or disabled by your authorized dealer or by
following these steps:
NOTE: The following steps must occur within the first
60 seconds of the ignition switch being turned to the ON
or START position. The manufacturer does not recommend
deactivating the Enhanced Warning System
(BeltAlert).
1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and
buckle the driver’s or front passenger seat belt.
2. Turn the ignition key to the ACCESSORY/RUN position
(engine does not need to be running), and wait for
the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle, unbuckle
and then re-buckle the driver’s or front passenger seat
belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with
the seat belt buckled.
4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. A single
chime will sound to signify that you have successfully
completed the programming.
The Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) can be reactivated
by repeating this procedure.
NOTE: Although the Enhanced Warning System
(BeltAlert) has been deactivated, the Seat Belt Warning
Light will continue to illuminate while the driver’s or
front passenger seat belt remains unfastened.

seems the same method works on almost all M.Y. jeeps.

That only removes the dinging while driving. If the original poster is like me, his problem is not that he doesn't wear his seat belt, but rather that he doesn't want to hear the "ding-ding-ding-ding-ding" you get when you start the Jeep without already wearing the seat belt. (And it is rather annoying to have to pull the seat belt out or have to listen to the warning chime if you are starting the engine only to go right back out again - which can be rather common during winter weather, for example.)

Unfortunately, there appears to be no way to stop the more annoying chime. Well, okay, except for the wirecutter-solution.

Yeah I wasn't talkin about on start up .. I was talkin about hoppin in and driving somewhere close or just down the street and I dont put on the belt and it dings my ear off. I dont mind if it flashes as long as I dont have to listen to it.

Thanks for the reply Ill try it out

It works on my wife's 08 Liberty. The Dinging stops, but the little red light stays on...big deal.

note: do not start the vehicle (line 3 is a bit confusing in the directions), just set the key to the run position.

I had a VW Cabrio & my friend removed a fuse so it wouldn't chime when the door was open and the key was in the ignition...maybe there is a fuse for the seat belt chime?

Why would you want to turn it off to begin with? The intent (after all) is to remind you to put it on just in case you get in an accident. Believe me, all it takes is a trip to a head injury clinic to see the results of not wearing a seat belt. Seeing people that were once completly healthy, fully functioning adults (or childern) that are sitting (or lying) there staring into space totally oblivious of what's going on around them will cure you in a second of having to put up with that anyoing warning "ding". Just remember, seat belts do save lives! BUCKLE UP !!

I deliver the news and get out of my car every 2 seconds and don't want to have to deal with wearing the belt out or just putting that damn thing on 150 times a night. I would just go find one in a junk yard (someone has to have totaled one by now) and get the plug that goes from the bottom of the seat towards the seat belt and cut the wires at the belt. Wire them together and tape them so no bare wire is showing. Now unplug yours from the belt and plug in the one you just made. I don't know 100% that you can do this on a Patriot but it works on most cars.
