      Turn off the open door beeper

      I find it annoying when I am trying to work on my car, or show off the sound system in my car with the front driver door open, and the key is in the ignition and turned to provide power to the radio, but the open door beeper messes up the sound and it gets annoying right? Hopefully I'm not the only one right? Anyway to get rid of that beeping without having to remove the metal face plate under the steering wheel:


      Step 1: Find the small brown box peeking out from the top of a steel plate just above the brake pedal.




      Step 2: Find the white plug attached to the brown box (if you are still worried about if it's the right one, just feel it while it's beeping and you can feel the speaker vibrate), reach on top of the white plug for a snap lock and push it down to unlock the plug and pull it out, the beeping will stop.



      It does not hurt your car in any way, the computer still thinks it's beeping so its safe.

      If you leave the ignition on, not on accessory mode, on like after starting the car, there wont be any beeping when the doors are open, you will only get the regular 5 beeps like you always get when you start it, no beeps after

      I'm talking about the nonstop beeping you get when the key is in the ignition and turned to the 1st stop, that powers the radio and lights but not the A/C which is the 2nd stop.

      The 1st stop (I don't know the names) beeps nonstop because it's the car's way of telling you "Hey don't forget the key!"

      well then leave it in the 2nd position like i said, it doesnt use any extra power....why make the extra effort to disconnect a hard to reach connecter when you can put the key on "on"??

      key in ignition buzzer

      JUST the topic I was looking for! I have the opposite problem- my buzzer stopped working! What do I do to get it working again? Is it one of those little "metal" modules in the fuse box that buzzes or just this brown box under the dash that buzzes? Thanks.

      Haha, mine quit beeping as well. Though, I don't mind because I find it annoying anyway.
