The Muffle Mod

I was out working on my truck this weekend and of course listening to the radio which then make the door dinger go off with the drivers door open. Well it goes without saying its annoying as hell. Well i got sick of it and pulled the dinger box and popped it open and wrapped the dinger in about 8 layers of electrical tape and put it back together and now it sounds a hell of alot quieter and allows it to still ding and let you know u left your keys or left your lights on etc but not be overly annoying

Yea but i disabled the dinger on my dodge and i would always forget the lights on or the keys in it when i was in a hurry. Although it doesnt seem like it at least for me i think it helps you subconsciously remember that stuff. Thats why i just want that little ding to remind me rather than a small siren

Yea neither of my trucks have the auto headlights. I had it on my old mountaineer and it was great but oh well.

But yea it was usually at like twilight hours i would forget and also because i back into spaces and walk back rather than going in the front so i dont directly walk in front of the headlights so i guess its my own fault
