Disconnecting the Door Chime

I did this on my 2013 JK 2 door. It stops the door chime and leaves the power windows and locks operational. It's also reversible since it only consists of removing a pin from a connector which can easily be put back. The connector is on the door wire harness. Just follow the black strap from the door toward the firewall. Locate the connector and unplug it. There is a purple wire with a white stripe going into this connector. It is responsible for nagging me about my door being open.

On the face of the connector is a red plastic piece that will need to be removed to allow access to the pin. I used a small screw driver to pop it out part way.

Grab it with your fingers, squeeze a bit and pull it all the way. Try not to break it. It will be put back in at the end.

Locate the purple wire with white stripe at the back of the connector and follow it to its pin on the face of the connector. The pin has a little metal tab on the side of it that prevents it from backing out of the connector. The tab must be depressed before the wire can be pulled from the plastic connector. I wiggled the wire in and out while working this little metal tab on the pin with a tiny flat blade screwdriver. With a little finesse it eventually came out. If you are pulling hard you're doing it wrong.

I saw this in a tutorial last year but cannot find it now. I really hated the door chime so I'm very grateful to the person that traced out that purple with white stripe wire as the culprit.

Nothing is more annoying than that damn door chime. And as much as I like this solution, it is more of an all or nothing solution. By removing that pin, you are committed to not having a door chime (and subsequently the headlight warning chime and dome light) until you put the pin back in place. I like options. So I wired a toggle switch into the circuit and mounted the switch into the door panel.

Total project time was less than one hour. First, remove the door panel (how to remove 2013 Jeep Wrangler door panel - YouTube). Find the wires heading into the door latch area. Locate the violet wire. Cut the violet wire and wire in a toggle switch (BTW: you will want to use a set of quick connects/disconnects just like they did to connect the power locks switch so you can remove the panel without needing to cut the wiring to your new switch.). Mount the toggle switch into the door panel. Replace the door panel. Bada bing bada boom you're done.

Now I can flip the switch any time I want to leave the door open and not hear that damn chime. Or, I can flip it back on to turn on the dome light while the door is open. This was great little project and has been one of the most useful mods I've made. Forgot to take pics while the panel was off, but here's a pic of the finished product.
