Door Chime Disable question

How do you dis-able this insane POS ??
I have read that simply removing the ground wire from the ign.switch contact the door lock will not stay locked and will default to the unlocked position ?
Is this true ?? where is the dang buzzer located I have looked into my dash but it really must be hidden ! how do you unplug it

there is a black wire with a pink line on it under the dash to the right of the steering wheel. behing the panel that covers the fuse box. ill post a pic as soon as i get the email i sent from my phone. Just cut that wire. thats what i did and no more annoying dinging and no other issues other than if the keys are in the ignition and you try to lock the doors with the door open it unlocks itself which isnt a big deal in my opinion.

O and im not sure about these trucks but i was told on my chevy that it came though the driver door speaker I dont know if its the same on these trucks

Rather than cut the wire ,I will try and use a pick to slide the prong out of the connector housing first !

I believe the dinger is integrated into the fuse box, there's no getting rid of it. I saw that somewhere one time but cant remember where...

As far as the locks; when I did mine what happens is that when I lock the doors with the door switch, the driver's door will automatically unlock (I'm assuming this is to prevent you from locking your keys in, since you pull the wire the truck probably thinks the keys are still in the ignition). Simply push the driver's door lock manually and it will stay locked. Also, the electronic key fob still works as it should as well.

Im not sure if we can do this on our trucks, but a friend of mine has a Tundra and found on a forum how to turn the volume down on the door dinger. That would be nice. Not loud but still there to let you know the keys are still in the ign. and would take care of the problem they were talking about with the door locks unlocking when you lock them.

Just a thought, Why not slice open the conduit it is in, so that you have more of it exposed, then cut it about 2-3" away from the connector, that way if you ever want it back you could put on a butt connector, or some m/f spade/bullet connectors? If you do spade/bullet connectors, you could connect or disconnect as you please.
