    you need to remove the BCM ( body control module ) it is in the trunk on the electronic control panel at the frount of the trunk on the right side, find the B plug in ( it will be marked on the plug ) find termanal # B11 ( black wire ) and termanal # B12 ( purpal/white wire ) cut both wires and wire togather this should turn off the chime.

Audible Warnings
The body control module (BCM) will provide an audible warning for various events relating to the vehicle. The functions that provide an audible warning are the key in ignition, the lights on, the occupant restraint (seat belt) and the park brake.
Key in the Ignition Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime if the key is left in the ignition in either OFF or the accessory position with the driver's door open. The chime rate for this is 150 chimes per minute. The key in the ignition chime has a higher priority than the lights on chime.
Lights on Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime if the park lights are on and the driver's door is open. In addition, 1 or 2 other conditions exist. The key is out of the ignition, or the key is in the ignition in the OFF position, and has not been turned. The BCM will chime at a rate of 200 chimes per minute until the conditions are removed.
Occupant Restraint Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime based on the class II message received from the SDM if the driver's seat belt is not buckled when the ignition is turned to run or crank. The chime rate for this feature is 50 chimes per minute.
Park Brake Audible Chime
The BCM will provide an audible chime for park brake when the park brake is applied and the vehicle speed is higher that 3 mph. The chime rate for this feature is 200 chimes per minute.

You can't disconnect anything . The problem has to be fixed .

Telltale Chimes
The body control module (BCM) will provide 4 chimes for each telltale activation per ignition cycle, at a rate of 150 or 200 chimes per minute. The chimes are limited to 1 chime event per telltale for each ignition cycle. The power up telltale function will not activate the telltale chime function. If the telltale becomes active during a cycle then the chime will sound.
The following telltales will activate the chime function:
• Low Washer Fluid
• Change Oil Soon Indicator
• Brake Fluid Low
• Oil Pressure Low
• Coolant Temperature Hot
• Low Coolant Level
• Low Fuel Level
• Antilock Brake System
• Volts Light (Generator)
• Supplemental Inflatable Restraint System (Air Bag)
• Trunk or Hatch Ajar

Having the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in the BCM would be the first step in the diagnostic procedure .
DTC B2965
When the ignition key is seated in the ignition switch, the key-in-ignition switch contacts the close, grounding circuit 80. The body control module (BCM) monitors the state of the key-in-ignition switch, the state of the ignition switch (OFF, ACC, or RUN) and the driver's door to control the key-in-ignition chime.

Why come I don't hear a chime when I stick my key


It's called 'The seven year itch', just a year late. You just don't ring your car's chimes anymore.

Why does vehicle ding five times with no warning lights showing?


If you have bad impact detection sensors (under the seats...little yellow bulbs) then you get the chimes.Those 'little impact sensors' are about $135 for both, and normally go bad after a collision impact. Body shops that cut corners don't replace them...but if not, then you end up with the airbag on light, and the chime. If you take out the air bag on light in the instrument cluster, you still get the chimer thingy...and every 20-minutes of driving, it will cycle through again. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

The low fuel CHIME goes off frequently when driving. Of course the tank can be full to 1/4 tank - wife can not stand the chime anymore and wants to pull the electric chimer out from under the dash. Any...


it's chiming for a reason,but why?
If it were mine I would take out the noisey thing.Most cars dont have one anyway,what are you going to miss?
Besides the cost of diagnostics verses you removing it your self,well it's you call.
