    I've lived with the buzzing... chiming Tacoma's since 2006. My hunting buddies call it a "Pontiac" with all chiming and dinging sounds !!! I just bought a 2008 Tacoma Off Road and now they've added the seat belt chime..... Living in the country getting in and out at slow speeds this was driving me crazy. I think I found the answer on here this evening to disable the seat belt chime. NOW HOW DO YOU DISABLE THE KEY IN IGNITION CHIME !!! Please help.

    I don't care where ya live, getting in and out at any speed other than stopped seems kind of dangerous. :)

    Remove the instrument cluster and then yank the buzzer off.

    Sweet. Cat fight! :D

    However, the one in your truck keeps staring at me. I'm a little intimidated to read your posts with a pussy cat staring at me.

    Gentlemen, I would like to thank all that tried to help, but apparently I stumped all of you.... cuz there is still is no good easy answer on the key reminder chime. (This ain't no city girl truck, if you can't remember your key and you don't have sense enough to have a hidden one.... then chime on) GAWD I hate that chimin crap !!!!!!!!!! I would certainly like to thank the guy that posted the "disable seat belt buzzer" it worked exactly as you said. Very much appreciated !!! Guess I'll go on driven an "Off Road Pontiac" just a chimin and a dinging through the deer woods....that looks like a double cab Tacoma 4X4. Great trucks and I love em. FYI - I had the dealer install the TRD Cold Air intake with a high performance foam filter before I drove it off the lot. The power and gas mileage is unreal. My 08 (with cold air intake) gets 2 mpg better than my 06 Tacoma same truck.

    Hang around here long enough and you'll see most threads dissolve into off topic "discussions" after approximately 2.3 posts. :D

    On a serious note, the only way I've heard is to pull the cluster and yank the buzzer. Other than turn the key to ON. The chime goes off after a few seconds so if you want to have the radio on or something while the doors are open, that works. I don't know if the battery would drain too much over night or a couple days if you did that and turn all the lights, fan and radio off though. The cluster lights would stay on unless you turned the dial down.

    I'll see if I can track something down on Toyotanation about it. I've heard it mentioned before.

    Well, you can try this: http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/t113318.html

    But, like a few people have said the headlights don't turn off with the driver door opening, and keyless entry won't lock the doors. Both because the truck thinks a door is still open. And maybe the dome light stays on too.

    Tom,

    I have been trying to find a good fix for this without tearing a component off the back side of the dash for almost 3 months.
    No pun intended, but Good Luck!

    i understand the seatbelt thing cause there are times when you are barely moving and getting out alot so a seatbelt is stupid, but the key buzz isn't bad. what do your friends drive that doesn't have a key buzzer? every old truck we have ever had buzzed when the door was open and key in it

    NDcouch,
    It's just been a lot easier on past vehicles. On the 95.5-2004 Tacoma's the buzzer is right behind the fuse panel door. There are ~10 wires that lead to the buzzer and each one is an individual trigger. So I just isolated which one was the door and seatbelt, removed the pins from the connector, taped them onto the wire bundle to secure them and kept the headlight buzzer, etc.
    The new Tacoma's have that combination meter that all the wires go into it and only one feed comes out that triggers the buzzer. So you loose the seatbelt, reverse, parking brake and key buzzer. OR you disconnect the door open wire and loose the interior lights, keyless entry, headlights auto off and key buzzer. What a crock.

    For justification: If I leave the key in and get out, I don't like to announce to the rest of the world that I did so. If I accidentally left my key in and locked my doors, although I believe it won't do that with the key in, without the key fob (Also attached to key!!). My 97 unlocked immediately after I pushed the door lock switch and the key was still in there. Lastly, If I'm out hunting it tends to scare away the game.

    Sorry to get long winded, I'm kinda passionate about this topic!! :D

    Who are you talking to?

    I've already said the only way I know to disable it and that is to remove the buzzer itself.

    This is how to change the LED in the instrument, but he also takes out the buzzer.

    Only 8 possible solutions, out of almost 20 replies!!!!! My Apoligies Tom!



    If you have an Access cab just uplug the switch on the DRIVERS side REAR door, and the chiming will stop. I did this and have seen no adverse effects. Keyless entry still works. I keep my dome light OFF bc of insects, unless i need it. then i reach up there and turn it on. It Feels like a different truck I HATED that chiming!!!!
