Door chime delete

Howdy all, another simple mod. This may be old news but what the heck.

I hate door chimes. They serve a purpose but I like to have a door open sometimes and not be irritated. Every place I looked to figure out how to kill it ended up being 'open the steering column, find this wire, cut it. But don't cut this because that happens etc' or 'take out the cluster, pull apart the gauges to find...'.

It only takes about 5 seconds to defeat the chime, with exactly 0 damage and you can go back to stock in another 5 seconds. All you need is a small screwdriver and 1" of electrical tape.

1. Remove your ignition lock (you need the screwdriver to push in the release ball).

This is what it looks like (removed for my keyless mods).


That ball looking thing on the top is what actually hold the lock in place and is what you depress to remove it.

But what you actually want is the orange looking connector thing. That grounds when you insert your key and what tells your car to annoy you.

2. Take a piece of electrical tape and cover it.



Put your lock back in. Everything will function as before, except enjoy your new ding ding dingless life.

If you ever for some reason want the car to annoy you again, just remove the tape. No damage done, no parts to replace, almost impossible to mess this one up. But if you try hard enough I'm sure you can find a way

1. You can't pull the keys out and leave the stereo on.

2. There's nothing to bind, nowhere for it to bind and almost no way to make that happen.




Personally i don't have any keys to worrry about pulling out, don't need any for this car.

Heck of a lot faster than every other method I found and non-destructive. And it can probably be done in less time than it takes to roll down the window and you'll never have to do it a 2nd time.

There's no taking apart the cluster, no wires to cut etc. If you take the PATS ring out for some reason the actual irritation wire is on a small black plug that will just slide out of the cylinder and you can move it out of the way so it can't ground. It serves no other purpose than to trigger the chime. You get the same result but you need to take the plastic off the column to do it or undo it. It's that contact you see sticking up at the 8 o'clock position.



The black ring is the PATS antenna, the black box under it is the module. It's held in with 1 screw, pull it and the module will slide off and then the plug can come out.

Above the cylinder is the lock bar. All the ignition lock really does is move that bar. Move it 1 way (as shown) and it locks the steering wheel, the other unlocks the wheel and moves the actual ignition switch that's located under the dash. The switch position is what puts power to the accessories, starter etc.


Or the more complicated, time involving, and costly route. Get rid of it entirely
