For the last several weeks I have noticed my 4xe will sometimes emit a single alert chime within the first couple of minutes of driving. There is no message on any of the displays that accompany the chime and my seatbelt is always fastened.

In addition, about 10 miles into my drive today I started getting repeated alert chimes similar to when the seatbelt isn't fastened (but it was) and there was no accompanying message to suggest what was wrong.

I have about 1,700 miles on my Jeep and have not had any issues up until this point.

Has anyone else encountered this and were you able to figure out what the issue is?
YES! I have been getting this too. It always happens at the start of a trip, about 1 minute in the drive. In fact its pretty common that I know the exact moment it will go off based on my normal weekday driving routine. Will try to record it. It's been driving me crazy. I turned off the beep for the favorite artist so I know its not that

That's your Sirius radio alerting you to the fact that one of your 'favorite' songs is on... (Sirius Radio is never "off". When you turn it off, it's just muted, and continues to monitor the Sirius broadcast.)

Clear your favorites, and those chimes will go away.
I thought so at first but then I went to the options and turned off the sound. So I know its not that. Now when my favorite artist is on, its just the notification on the radio saying favorite artist, but no beep. So its definitely not that.

I wouldn't worry about it then. It's probably not Sirius...

Thank you for the information. Very helpful.

Check Nav settings. There are alerts that can be set to warn when you go over the speed limit.
I Thought of that but on my 8.4 the lady comes over speakers and tells me, there is not a chime etc. Just her yelling at me to slow down.

Yes, the same lady can be trained to beep or shout in the Nav settings:)

I'm getting it too... it sounds like a single seatbelt chime and I almost always have a passenger, so I've not been tracking it . I'll check the Sirius settings, but it sounds like a common vehicle chime and not a Uconnect sound if that makes sense.
