you could try disconnecting it completely.
or if you want to get creative install a switch in between it so you can shut it off when needed.

All,
Ive been searching for the chime info found this,

Belt-Minder® Deactivating/Activating Printable View (79 KB)

Preparation

Before deactivating/activating the Belt-Minder®, apply the parking brake.
Place the gearshift in the PARK (P) position (automatic transmission) or the NEUTRAL (N) position (manual transmission).
Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.
Close all the vehicle doors.
Unbuckle the driver safety belt.
Place the headlamp switch in the OFF position.

Deactivating/Activating

Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position (do not start the engine).
Wait until the safety belt warning indicator turns off (approximately 1 minute).
NOTE: Step 3 must be completed within 50 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off.

At a moderate rate, buckle then unbuckle the driver safety belt 9 times, ending with the safety belt in the unbuckled state.
After this step, the safety belt warning indicator illuminates for 3 seconds.
NOTE: The buckle/unbuckle sequence may not be counted if completed too fast. Wait approximately 2 seconds after each sequence.

Within 10 seconds after the safety belt warning indicator turns off, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
This disables the Belt-Minder® feature, if it is currently enabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
This enables the Belt-Minder® feature, if it is currently disabled. As confirmation, the safety belt warning indicator flashes 4 times per second for 3 seconds followed by another flash sequence of 4 times per second for 3 seconds.
After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete.

I think I saw that in my manual somewhere.

What I want is a way to disable to headlight chime. We often leave parking lights on.

RDKL,
I have a factory service DVD. and I've looked damn near everywhere
and I've still yet (but still looking) to find that darn CHIME Unit". I found references to it but not "it" specifically . what I have learned. there is only one chime. and its controlled by the OB Processor. and it decides what chimes and when and how,
the reason Im saying this. is think if the chime is disconnected all CHIMES will go! Seatbelt, Reverse sensor etc... or any variation. So the trick may be
finding away to trick the computer. via a diode or similar. but then you have no way of knowing the lights got left on. comprende?

RDKL,
Found the chime info. looks complicated. PM me if you want it I can PDF it and send it to you.
the meat of it is... All the warnings alerts etc... are controlled by the onboard computer. behind the display
and it decides what gets piped out of the chime speaker key word SPEAKER not chime.
so if you disable it you disable everything.

on the note of complicated chimes. a few years back i had bought a brand new 03 Sierra 1500. Drove it down to the car toys and had a new deck installed. never really paid attention that my chime never worked after that. then when i was selling it, i put the stock deck back, i had the door open when i did this. as i plugged the deck in, my truck started chiming at me, about scared the hell out of me.
