Disabling the 'dinger'

I'm trying to work on my rig and I want the radio on but I can't find the key in the ignition "dinger" to disable the sucker. Does anyone posses the secret as to where Ford has hidden this thing in my rig? The fawker that designed it must work for the CIA and is used to hiding bugs in terrorist vehicles because I can't find it. MAKE THE BEEPING GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

You know of course, if you disable the dinger, you will lock your keys in your truck the very next time you drive it....
I hate the dinger too but more than once, it has reminded me that my keys were still in the ignition before i locked the truck up....

Yeah - that's a good point. I really don't use it since I got the alarm/remote start put on. Everything is controlled by the key chain.

Disabling the "dinger"

Ok yall this is what yall gotta do. Pull the ignition switch out. There is a black wire that goes to it. Unplug that wire from the ignition switch. Put some black tape on it leave it unplugged and put the ignition switch back in. That wire I believe is a ground wire witch activates the dinger. at least that is how I got it to be disabled on my truck it is a 02 F-250. To remove the ignition switch put the key in run position. Then on the bottom of the steering column there is a little hole right under the ignition switch. You need a small phillips head screw driver push it up into that hole. Then you can easily pull the ignition switch out and unplug the wire from it. The reason for the black tape is so it will not make contact and have the dinger go off while your going down the road. This takes a whole whoppin 5 minutes.

Cool - that sucker just pops right out but I don't have any wires. It's all encased on the ignition itself. Let me pull the cover off the steering column.

I disconnected my seatbelt dinger and I think the door dinger quit also. Right under driver seat. I will have to check next time I have the door open and the key in. I know the light dinger still works.

Disabling the "dinger'

Hey Rodslinger, it has been awhile since I did this. You maybe correct about having to remove the steering wheel cover. either way it is on the bottom mine had a little red with silver metal tabs on it. That the wire plugged into. That red plastic piece with the silver tabs made contact with the ignition switch. All I know is that when I disconnected that blace wire the dinger stop.
