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

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.
