Question Silence The Annoying Beep

Pulled into a drive up pharmacy in my 2020 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and was close to the wall, have to close to reach. A warning beep started up telling me I was too close. Duh. It chimed a few times then stopped. Then a short bit later started chiming again then stopped. Trying to carry on a conversation through a tin can audio system at the drive through with myself and the tech wearing masks.... all with the DING-DING-DING-DING going on and off. I'm new to this vehicle, actually 3 days with it, and I really want to know how to turn this off. Started reading the user manual and 470 pages??? Seriously???

If anyone has a way to silence this in a situation like this, please let me know. And now that I type this I'm thinking if I put it in Park it probably would have stopped. Someone can reply and confirm my ignorance if that's the case but would really like to know if you can silence this on the touchscreen. But even still, if I was the 4th car back I really wouldn't want to keep shifting into park every time I stopped.

assuming this is the back-up sensors for cross path, you should be able to turn them off. Button will be beside the Start-Stop button on the lower center console

Editing slightly because you your Trailhawk likely has front and back sensors - What he said ^^

I can tell how to turn off the lane assist but not sure what would turn off the back-up cross path sensor.



Sorry for the newbie questions but the manual doesn't help much.

It's in the Starting and Operating section of the manual. No need to read all 400+ pages. The previous reply tells which button it is.

Just to be a little more complete, there are acoustic sensors for detecting nearby objects as you are parking, so you don't run into them. That P alarm button turns that system off. The system has also confused a few late model drivers here by slamming on the brakes while you move in reverse. Makes it hard to back up a trailer.

The optional cross path system uses radar for longer range and more accurate detection. That sounds a beep if you have the turn signals on, or are in reverse, and it detects something in your blind spot. You can adjust those setting in one of the radio menus.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

Thanks for all the great feedback. I'll read that section but even thought I am a mechanical engineer, it reads like it was written by an engineer and not a tech writer. My last vehicle was a '13 Subaru Forester 2.5X and only tech it had was being able to Bluetooth connect my phone. Long story but had a couple Grand Cherokees before that and never lost the itch to have a Jeep again. We have a '12 Liberty in house, too, and when I'd drive that I smiled a lot.

Thanks again!

Turn your engine off?

Inching forward in a long line of cars that would wear out my index finger and probably not so good for my starter, too.

Very true phlyx.

I had in mind turning your engine off only while you were conversing with that annoying intercom.

Would have to figure out does Park or Neutral disable the sensors. Does anyone know that? Can test but if someone knows.

Park turns off the beeping. Not sure if neutral does.

If I recalled correctly, my early model stopped beeping when I was stopped with foot on brake. I disabled it years ago as it was annoying when it warned me that I was going to hit the door jam as I backed out of the garage. I had at least 6 inches clearance.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;
