horn honk when locking doors with inside door switch [TSB now available]

I contacted FCA while filling out my new vehicle survey to let them know that when I looked the door using the inside door switch the horn would sound very loud for about four seconds after you closed the door either the key fob in my pocket.

FCA opened CAC on this and gave me a TSB number to have installed that is to fix the issue.

I went to the dealer today and they were able to reproduce the issue, with the technician saying the others in the shop were complaining about the loud / excessive horn honk.

The TSB referenced was already in my system so that was not the fix. The dealer tried to open a Star Case on it but FCA says this is the way it is supposed to be. I could understand a quick chirp to let you know the door were locked or to remind you to get your key fob, but this is a long / loud horn honk.

Does anyone else have this issue? While getting out of vehicle you lock the doors using the switch inside then close the door, wait a second and the load horn honk happens.

JeepCares are you aware of this?
