DISABLE CAR CHIME, 2002 VUE, or any Piezo-Electric buzzer chime

DISABLE CAR CHIME, 2002 VUE, or any Piezo-Electric buzzer chime

My situation was my chime rang continually, continuous, never-ending chime, with no other problems. Talk about driving you NUTS! Could have been sensors or BCM, but to find out would cost $100-$800 according to other posts. Decided to disable the chime in the BCM, but found little help,none from dealers.Some sites suggested twisting off the chime (Piezo-Electric buzzer),but that scared me. Others suggested popping the top of the buzzer to remove the metal disc, the vibration of which causes the chime function. My buzzer did not have a seam at the bottom to allow taking it apart. Pictures show,
1. Internal of BCM, arrow shows chime/piezo-electric buzzer.
2. I used needle nosed pliers inserted into the center hole to break away the top of the buzzer, very fragile plastic, very easy to do.
3. Close up of the buzzer, top removed, showing metal disc which causes the chime.
4. Buzzer with metal disc removed. I reassembled BCM, re-installed it, tested vehicle. No more chime for anything, everything else worked fine, circuit on BCM undisturbed.
Total time, 30 minutes, no more "ding-ding-ding". Good luck. Write if you have any questions. Skeetpick
