Instead of disabling a useful thing why not just temporarily disable it whenever you need the door open while working. To do so simply open your door and press the door latch on the door. This is a little black lever that is located on the door. If you push downward on it you will literally hear a somewhat loud click as it engages the latch mechanism and complets the circuit for the door adjar switch. do NOT FORGET to pull the door handle to release the latch before you close the door!!!!! im sure you will seriously mess it up if you slam the closed latch into the bar on the car side.

I dont remember what years it was.... but if you replaced the radio with aftermarket, all the chimes will go away. I dont remember the years tho.

I believe that only applies to 2001+ GA'ms, not a '97.

The speaker for the chimes is located in a black box under the glove compartment. You could cut the wire or trace that is goign to the speaker if you really were that desperate.

yea thats true, my first recommendation still goes back to just clicking the door latch down as described in my first post.

SES would be more accurate, but its Service Engine Soon.

What do you mean mixed?

If you have one or more codes, the light on the dash comes on. To determine what codes, you need a scanner that can interface to ODBII, such as one that your dealership or local repair joint might have.

EDIT: Correction, on a '97, it might be OBDI.. I think OBDII was out around 96-97, but may not have been adopted in a 97.... no idea for sure... regardless, take it to a shop if the SES light comes on, or undo whatever change you made that made it come on.

No, actually, SVS would be more accurate. Service Vehicle Soon, typically comes on when an fault is detected in the BCM or the systems it controlls.

Ok, this thread is BACK FROM THE DEAD OF THE DEAD. I've been searching on how to disable chimes, and the only decent stuff is here. 2001 non-Monsoon stock HU, want to get rid of the damn door chime, if I have to get rid of them all, fine. I know it's running thru the speakers, so at one point the signal has to go to the HU. Anyone know what exactly I could cut to get rid of that? I don't want to "flip the switch" on the door, cause I or someone else will slam the door and snap it within a week. Any ideas? Feel free to scream at me to search, I did, found nothing, if you search and find something, show me and I'll be your friend forever.

why'd you want to want to get rid of it?

Because I'd like to have the radio on and the door open at the same time, without having a constant dinging sound in my head.
