    Anyone know how to disable the deafening alarm for when the door is open and the engine is running?

    Didn't those GMT400s have a buzzer under the dash? Little square box with a two wire plug going to it. Just unplug it and throw the thing away.

    I'd install a switch in the line to the buzzer, so when doing a task that requires the key in the ignition and the door open, you could simply shut it off.

    Driver side, it’s the box on the right. Just remove it and don’t forget to take your keys with you, lol.

    I had to do this to my 99 Express, and I will most definitely be doing it to my hoe. Such a horrible, relentless sound!

    I believe i taped my box up years ago to dampen the sound to just the right level. "middle age man low"

    Mine doesn’t work. Not gonna bother trying to fix it reading this thread!
    It would be nice to have a headlight reminder though, I’ve gotten lazy with the Autos these days. Already cost me a jump, which then locked my keys inside.
