I hate door chimes. I hate opening my Jeep door and having the chime blare. I hate trying to listen to the radio while woking on the Jeep and having the door chime drown out the tunes. I hate nannys.
I asked the Jeep dealer to use their computer programming and turn the damn thing off, some lil service managerette told me that they couldnt as "it is a safety issue". Safety issue my butt!! As much as the current corrupt regime in DC would want it, I dont need no nanny. I didnt want to destroy the buzzer cuz it probably shares some other electronic stuff that would mess up dash warning lights etc, so I looked to Australia for help.
Enter the DTec Chime Buster.
DTec sent their Chime Buster to me complete with simple installation instructions.
To install all you need is to access the wiring under the fusebox along with wire cutters, knife, tape, and a soldering iron and some solder. I guess one could install the Chime Buster without soldering the connections, but why?
Follow the instructions and find the correct connector and wire.
Cut and splice in the wires of the Chime Buster.
Get some power, as per instructions.
Tape it up..
Secure the wiring harness as it was before you started messing with it and secure the Chime Buster so when you close the fuse box back up everthing fits nicely.
Its a simple modification and well worth it. The Chime Buster is able to 'learn' different chime setting but I chose to leave it in its default setting of allowing the door chime to chime for 5 seconds then shutting it off. I figured even tho I dont need a chime indicating the key is in the ignition maybe some Jeep mechanic or some friend accessing my Jeep might. I can live with a 5 second chime.
*Disclaimer. I have no interest in Chime Buster, or DTec, financial or otherwise. I am just a satisfied customer and which to pass on my experience.
