How to disable the seat belt chime?

I 饾櫀饾櫋饾櫖饾櫀饾櫘饾櫒 wear my seat belt when driving on any road and don't need the incessant chime to remind me every time I start my 2019 Trailhawk (push button start). It's bad enough that the UConnect stereo instantly blasts the radio when I start, but that's another issue.

I also drive slowly around my own property hauling hay and feed in a trailer, and shouldn't be 饾櫅饾櫎饾櫑饾櫂饾櫄饾櫃 to wear a seat belt for that, or for the lengthy stretch of driveway before I get to the road.

All that is to say there should be 饾櫍饾櫎 饾櫂饾櫎饾櫍饾櫂饾櫄饾櫑饾櫍饾櫒 about my seat belt safety because whenever I pull out of my driveway onto the road for the past two decades, my seat belt, as well as those of any passengers, will be buckled.

I've tried all the online suggestions, which are inconsistenct, usually involving unbuckling and rebuckling three or more times while in the Run position. 饾檳饾櫎饾櫍饾櫄 饾櫇饾櫀饾櫕饾櫄 饾櫖饾櫎饾櫑饾櫊饾櫄饾櫃.

I haven't explored fuse or wiring options, nor if my Blue Driver OBD will disable the chime, but thought I'd reach out to the community first. Has anyone 饾櫒饾櫔饾櫂饾櫂饾櫄饾櫒饾櫒饾櫅饾櫔饾櫋饾櫋饾櫘 disabled the seat belt chime in a 2019 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk with a push button start?

Thanks much

Hi kwhopson,

If your vehicle is equipped with the BeltAlert feature, it can be activated/deactivated by an authorized dealer. Stellantis does not recommend deactivating BeltAlert. However, the BeltAlert light will turn and remain on until the driver and passenger belts are secured if deactivated. You can search more information on the BeltAlert feature starting on page 182 of your Owner's Manual here

I have asked my dealer to deactivate and was told they are not allowed to do so. I have the BeltAlert and would love to have it deactivated. Is there a way to do it on my own since my dealer has refused to do it. Or do have any suggestions?
Just got these from Amazon. No more chime and light. 馃榾

Thats what i suggested in my first post. Either a seat belt latch or just plug the seat belt in behiand you. Buying from amazon is like buying from SH only worse.
Thank you!! It's awesome!!
