I just bought a used 2007 Jeep Commander Limited. I normally wear my seatbelt, however my dog doesn't when he sits in the passenger seat. This activates the seat belt fasten chime. I tried the following steps which everyone else has listed but did not work, any other suggestions?
(Steps followed that did not work)
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 fasten the driver's seat belt.
2. Start the engine, and wait for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting teh vehicle, unbuckle and re-buckle the driver's seat belt at least three times, ending with the seat belt buckled, within 10 seconds.
4. Turn off the engine. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.
The Enhanced Warning System (BeltAlert) can be recactivated by repeating this procedure.
You are misinterpeting the proceedure.
Get in, close door, fasten belt, turn key to 'on' position....do not start.
Unbuckle, re-buckle three times, ending with belt buckled.
Turn off key and unbuckle belt.
The chime may or may not sound.
Once successfully re-programmed, the chime will sound at startup if the belt is not buckled but once it has chimed a few seconds it will shut off.
The light will stay on.
The chime will not sound again untill the next startup cycle.
Took me about three attempts on my 07 but persistance paid off.
Search some of the old seat belt chime threads.....you'll see many members had to try it several times before they succeeded.
