Short out the sensor in the door that tells the computer you opened the door.... Or simply remove the buzzer.

Buzzer is integrated into the fuse box is it not? There is a mod to Disable the Dinger. Worked really well but the only issue is that if you have electronic lock and lock the doors before you close them the drivers door will immediately unlock again. Built in safety feature to keep you from locking the keys in. You either have to push the button manually or use the key fob.

The alarm is integrated into the gauge cluster. remove it take it apart and put a piece of scotch tape over the top. this will quiet it down enough that it does not bother you but loud enough to let you know when you left your keys in!!!

Yeah you have to get used to it. But after a couple of weeks it's second nature. If you dont know the unlock code it should be on a module under you dash behind the radio. There are several threads that tell you where to find it. Get it, reset the customer code to your preference and forget it. It's always been easier just to use the lock on the key fob anyway for me.

Also, don't know how much reading you've done yet but these trucks are stupid easy to break into. The door lock itself probably wont buy you 20 seconds. You might also want to look at some threads relating to jimmy jammers or replacing the front handles with the non-key lockable type.

Just remove the key cylinder on the steering column, pull the clip out, tape it up, reinstall the key cylinder. Done deal.

In the steering colum there is a pink and green wire that goes to the tumbler. Cut it and the door chime goes away. Just remove the two screws on the bottom half on the colum and look for the wire, you can't miss it, going into the top portion of the tumbler.

Yeah thats the same wire that clips on the key cylinder that HeavyAssault is talking about . I
did the same thing years ago and never looked back . I also unhooked the wire under
the drivers seat to get rid of the DINGER !
