Hi sorry this is so long but its right from the owners maual....//with the key on engine off Push the MORE button on the faceplate to display the menu setting screen. In this mode the Uconnect® system allows you to access programmable features that may be equipped such as Display, Voice, Clock & Date, Safety & Assistance, Lights, Doors & Locks, Auto-On Comfort, Engine Off Options, Suspension, Compass Settings, Audio, Phone/Bluetooth®, Sirius Setup, Restore Settings, and Clear Personal Data....//now select from the screen doors and locks ...//this will open up and other menu screen to change what you want when the doors are locked and unlocked

This is what it says in the manual for my 2009: "Sound Horn with Remote Lock This feature will cause the horn to chirp when the doors are locked with the RKE transmitter. This feature can be turned on or turned off. To change the current setting, proceed as follows: • For vehicles equipped with the EVIC, refer to “Sound Horn with Lock,” under “Personal Settings (Customer-Programmable Features),” under “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)” in Section 4. • For vehicles not equipped with the EVIC, perform the following steps: 1. Perform this operation while standing outside the vehicle. 2. Press the LOCK button on a programmed RKE transmitter for at least 4 seconds, but no longer than 10 seconds. Then, press the PANIC button while still holding the LOCK button. 3. Release both buttons at the same time. 4. Test the feature while outside of the vehicle by pressing the LOCK button on the RKE transmitter with the ignition switch in the LOCK position and the key removed. 5. Repeat these steps if you want to return this feature to its previous setting. NOTE: Pressing the LOCK button on the RKE transmitter while you are in the vehicle will activate the Vehicle Security Alarm. Opening a door with the Vehicle Security Alarm activated will cause the alarm to sound. Press the UNLOCK button to deactivate the Vehicle Security Alarm."

I looked everywhere trying to find how to disable chirp on my 2017 Jeep Compass. You my friend are a genius , it is not equipped with EVIC and that procedure worked great. I thank u and family and neighbors thank u.

Not everyone asking this question is too lazy to read the owner’s manual, I’m driving a rental car and no owner’s manual is available. @harris_42, thanks for the detailed instructions. Although the menus are slightly different, the procedure worked on a 2019 model. There’s a Doors & Locks submenu in Settings which contains a checkbox for this behavior.
