Yup.... pull the ingnition cylinder and put a piece of electrical tape between the contacts. Takes about 2 minutes.

With the key in and at the "run" position, use something to push in the retaining pin thru the hole in the bottom side of the collumn below the key switch. I often use something in my pocket... the ink tube out if any common ink pen is about the right size and lenth. Wire... a piece of metal coat hanger... anything...

Push up with your left hand while gently jiggling the key with your right... you will know you hit the right spot when you feel movement with your left. Pull out...

I will go take some pictures... check back in a bit.

This is the retaining pin that needs pushed in/up to release the key cylender. The hole in the collumn cover is just below the hole for the screw, about a half inch away.



The pen is pointing to the contacts that need to be kept apart with tape or as shown here a piece of heavy paper.



Good luck... easy mod. I have done half a dozen on a moments notice while talking to other Ford owners when the door/key chime dinging in the backround... "Hey does that bug you? Want it to stop? Watch this..."

The other option... more perminent... it to just pry the metal tab off altogether. Still need to pull the cylender out to do it.

You guys and your methods. I used the info garnered from the pics up above, and checked it out. Then I used the little screwdriver I used as a punch, to just slide the whole plastic piece off. It's just a little clip right there under the tape in the pic. Slides right off. No tape, no breakage.

I use the tape method so it can be easily reversed without having to keep tract of loose parts, mostly when its someone else's truck. However... on my 250, I just pryed out the whole thing and tossed it in the trash!

This was one of the first things I asked the dealership about. I was told no it is part of the ignition system and could not be turned off. I'm glad to see someone figured it out. But will it work for a 2008. I would imagine so but sometimes the smallest changes come into play.

I dont know about an '08, but have found one early '99 act diffrently... but thinkin about it now it might have been a door switch issue and not the key.
