      The warning chime is generated by the GEM and is not easily defeated.
      You might be able to disable it for the "door ajar" warning by cutting a few wires going into the GEM, if your brave enough to do it.
      The 99 model year wiring to the door ajar switches are as follows:
      Left front; yellow with a black stripe

      right front; gray with a red stripe

      right rear; pink with a light blue stripe

      left rear; light gray with a yellow stripe or a pink wire with a light blue stripe depending on what "power group" your truck has.

      Pin numbers 5 6 7 and 8 leading into the GEM.
      Do so at your own risk.
      While I have the wiring diagram book for the 99 model year, this is how I interpret it.
      Your results may vary and if you screw it all up, I do not want to hear about it.
      Might be easier to just get used to the noise

      Unable to disable door chime on '97 Ranger

      I tried the possible solution I found here, cutting a single wire near the ignition switch but that hasn't worked. Any other good ideas good ideas?

      I used the suggestion in the thread linked in post #2.
      Worked great, but it was on my F-350 :confused:

      I tried posting #2 with no luck

      The next thing is looking for the black box containing that infernal chime. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the reply.
