Has anyone tried or looked into eliminating this buzzer so when the keys are in the ignition and the door is open it won't sit there and ding the whole time?
Ive done this which eliminates the seat belt chime which is nice but not the door chime and ive tried listening for the chime so i can simply unplug it but when you get your head up under the dash it seems to be coming from all directions :banghead: but i'll get under there and try it againHere try
Seatbelt Chime and Back-Up Honk Feature TURN OFF
Original Write Up By dodgeram dude
Many of you 3rd Gen Owners are tired of that "Saftey" feature we know as that "Annoying Dingger" Well Here is the Cut and Dry method on how to get rid of that chime.
Here's the procedure...
1. With all doors closed and the ignition switch in any position except ON or START, buckle the driver's seat belt.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and wait for the seat belt warning light to turn off.
3. Within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle, unbuckle and then re-buckle the driver's seat belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with the seat belt buckled.
4. Turn off the engine. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.

It may take more than one try, but it works.
If you are annoyed but the back-up alarm with the door open, do some searching and you can cure that also
You should be able to pull the screws out of the bottom and gently pop the top off. the top and bottoms used to fit together with a tab and hook kind of thing. Squeezing the bottom near the seam usually popped it apart.I'm trying to get the column apart right now, but I'm having some problems. It looks simple enough, but I dunno. Anyone know how to do it? unbolt it and pop it apart I figured...
