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

So why hasn't anyone suggested to close the wire circuit for the switch in the belt mech?
I think it tests for shorts to ground.
(There are 2 wires leading to the belt fastener (Most likely requiring a closed connection... not a grounding connection to the chassis other wise 1 wire would be all that's needed )
Its worth noting that a ground only connection (to register the seat belt as fastened ) is more likely to fault do to shorting on the chassis or belt mechanism and cause a false positive. disassembly would answer this quickly)

Also people want to silence the annoying notification chime, not circumvent the warning itself.
(Wouldn't leaving the belt always fastened or using a "fake" not do the same thing? How would the computer know the difference? There wouldn't be any warning for that as well.)
Yeah, possibly

Personally not a fan of disabling the whole thing.
That little switch seems to be tied into other stuff like the handbrake release etc now..
Dealers should just disable the chime when asked. As was the case previously.
Disabling it used to add another menu item in the set-up to re-enable it.

I would be interested to see how and where the seatbelt is tired into the emergency brake ...
