I just purchase a 2022 eclipse cross. I haven’t even owned it for 24 hours yet and so far it has done this three times. I am driving alone I have my seatbelt on I am not departing lanes, I am not about to crash into anything. Out of nowhere this extremely loud ding ding ding will happen. Three dings that’s it. No warning lights nothing on the dash it’s so loud that it’s startling. It’s not beep beep beep like the blind spot it’s DING DING DING!!!! I need this to stop! Help!!

As a check, leave your seat belt unbuckled as you drive away to see whether the sound you hear is the same as that which you hear for the phantom alert. As a test, buckle up the passengers seat belt to see if the sound is eliminated. May be a faulty sensor.

Not sure how the US models differ from other geo's as far as seat belt warnings are concerned. My view of the US PDF manual doesn't mention nor show the rear passenger warning light on the dash as we have in Australia (see pic). Plus, I don't know what many have changed with the new model you have.

For Australia, the rear seat warning will illuminate every start and, if someone is seated in the rear without fastening the seatbelt, a warning (same as the front seat DING) will sound if the vehicle moves off and the seat belt remains unfastened. This is a weight based alarm so can be triggered by a weight on the rear seats. The warning will only sound once for the first start of the trip and then not come on again unless the vehicle ignition is turned off.

Not sure if this alert system is installed on US builds.

This is because of the built in navigation! I was having this issue also. Go into your navigation settings and look for warning signs. The car is beeping to let you know of upcoming red light cameras etc. turn the warning sounds off for those! It’ll be gone. Believe me I had a heart attack every time.

This is quite possible. Our earlier models only had CarPlay or Android Auto supplied SatNav. The new model has it built in. Our Subaru Crosstrek/XV does the same thing with the navigation when approaching curves and such things as railway crossings. Follow @Sicoupe06 suggestion and turn off the warnings in the navigation settings.

I have a 2022 with Nav and never had this problem since day one. I'm curious about this and will see if I can replicate this issue.

Yeah it was annoying but after fixing on my own I confirmed with the dealership this was the issue. Wild.

Omg you saved me I swear I was about to have a heart attack. It was so random I couldn't figure it out.

Haha glad I could prevent the heart attack! I know I was damn close. It was sooo scary and I’m pretty sure the dealer would’ve had no idea either. Lol
