6.4 Snap, Crackle, Pop ??

so,,,,,, what I did was, pull the blue/gray wire from the ignition, tape it off really well, and voila the door dinger quit dinging with key in ignition... However... later i was sitting at a stop light and heard a "SNAP",, just like a rock hitting windshield, but nobody was moving anywhere. then two blocks down the road i smelled smoke, pulled over quickly, looked, listened, smelled, and can't find anything. looked at pulled wire, looks perfectly the way i left it.
(figured its fully covered) i drove on. when i got to my gopher hunting spot i shut it OFF, with key in ignition and door closed, out of nowhere "SNAP" again. weirdest dang thing. Anyone got any ideas??/

Most likely it was something plastic expanding or contracting due to temperature change.

Instead of cutting a wire from the ignition how about cutting the wire going directly to the dinger... You don't really know what else the ignition wire is powering. I would reconnect the ignition wire and disconnect the dinger.

sounds like a perfect idea, thanks,,, i will get on ,,, oh wait any idea where that dinger is?,,,lol

and i did for sure hook that wire back up (and the annoying dinging started back up) i dont think that it has 'snapped' since then. there was nothing in the truck that we could think of that could have expanded due to heat, we thought about that also. and again it was suck a 'snap' that it didn't really sound like any plastic expanding/contracting that we had heard before.

also there is another gentlemen on here that i found out pulled the exact same wire on his '08 and never has heard anything crazy like this in his truck. (talked to him in person on phone to make sure),,,,,, crazy i tell ya.
