Remove key in ignition chime

Remove key in ignition chime

Postby Cooki_monstre [OP] » September 28th 2020, 10:48pm

I use my van lots as a "music" van. (All doors open for the extra sound).
I would very much like to remove the annoying chime that's given when
the key is in the ignition and the door is open. I've seen threads on this
before but after searching for a while I could not find any. I would like
to keep all the other chimes if possible. Thanks for any help! :D

I was about to say... scroll down the page.
There are 5 or 6 usually relevant or similar threads listed...

Chime Info Bot of Page.jpg

Here's that Thread Will referred you to.
I do not think that thread is very informative and the years mentioned may not work.
"remove the dash", etc, etc,

As far as searching - try: " chime disable 1998 astrosafari.com "

Including this site's addy in your search line will show you pertinent posts / threads without having to use the crappy search function of the site itself.
.

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... “Everything needs to change except the asshole culture and stupid way of life of the avg. antifa, BLM follower - slobs, cowards, killers w/o any thought that they, IN FACT, are now the Racists.”

Another option would be to wire up a switch so that when enabled it appears that all of your doors are closed. Or wire the radio on a separate switch so that you can leave it on while having the key removed from the ignition.
