    It blasts my ears. I know where the damn thing is -- it's behind the
    front cover on the driver's side console. But I understand that if it
    is removed, some necessary functions will be lost. All I want rid of
    is the constant noise, which is to warn that the headlights are on
    when the key has been removed, when the headlights are NOT on.

    I also understand that the glitch is due to wear and tear on the
    ignition switch, but that's too damn expensive to replace.

    There ought to be a way to disable the chime without disabling the
    other functions of the unit.
    Maybe just by clipping one of the wires or snipping something?

    Haaaaaalp!

    Not 100% positive but on most GM vehicles you will have to spelunk under the
    driver's side dash and there should be a plug-in piezo buzzer. Thats what
    makes the chime. You should be able to remove it safely. I would not be
    cutting any wires unless you know exactly what you are doing. Look also as I
    replied in the other post you posted, behind the drivers side center panel.
    It removes with velcro.

    Also, I am not aware of any other functions that are dependent on the piezo
    door buzzer.
