A "somewhat related" question... Does anyone know where the actual chime is? I'd like to disconnect it altogether! I occasionally like to listen to the radio with the doors open, and can't stand all the fricking dinging going on because the keys are in the ignition.
My previous Ford was an Escape (ok, you can stop laughing now), and I actually took the dash apart to find that damn chime--built into the back of the dash circuit board. I just filled it with silicone and it ended up being a barely audible muffled peep.
