    I searched, but found nothing.

    I want to turn off the warning chime when the truck doesn't go into 4lo.
    For some reason i have to futz around with the 4lo method,
    sometimes 4lo doesn't engage...i have to roll forward a bit
    and then retry...meanwhile the chime is stupid loud.

    Anybody figured a way to do this?...turn the chime off?...

    Thanks,
    Paul

    If you follow the directions and engage 4Lo appropriately, it won't chime. Novel concept I know. :D

    heh...

    i know how to do it, but engaging 4lo has been kind of hit or miss since
    i bought it new...a couple others on this forum said the problem
    gets better the more you use 4lo...not seeing that yet.

    I guess my problem is that i am not pushing the clutch in far enough?

    I don't mind the 4lo yellow flashing light in the dash...just the chime.

    I noticed it is a separate buzzer...just was wondering if it could be
    easily disabled without too much hassle.

    Probably this ^^^ That's usually the reason I get the chime sometimes. It happened to me the other day actually. Pushed the clutch in a little further and it engaged just fine.

    4lo and key in ignition chimes I would not disable.

    Seat belt warning sound is diabled. My dog rides there and it drove me crazy after every stop.
