There are two ways. They are both pretty old school and can be done without tools.

1. roll down the window and close the door or

2. take the key out

I know, I know... I'm a genius. :gringreen

Another way used to be to take a pencil and use a pocket knife or hacksaw and trim it to the right length so the wood part pressed in the button on the front of the car opening and the eraser part wedged against the painted part of the door.

Then after you are done you totally forget it's there and close the door and [CRUNCH], you shove the button into the door frame where it dings for the rest of your life, because it fell into the car and you can't pull it back out.

Brilliant. You thought it sucked dinging while you worked on it? HA! Drive that baby to work.... ding.... ding.... ding.... for 25 mind-bending miles. Then you hear it in the back of your mind, all day, like a song that got stuck in your head.

There is a way, but the door will not latch closed.
And if you accidentally forget about it, and happen to slam your door closed, you could damage the door, latch and strike itself.

The dinging is tied to the latch in the door.
Take the latch /hook part in the door itself and mimic it being latched around the stop or post. No more ding. To undo you might need a screw driver or some thing to pry the latch back open in the door again while pulling on the door handle.

I do this to have the radio on or key in ignition, and the door open, with no ding, ding, ding.

I don't want to talk about it.
LMFAO..... you might need to see a doc over this one Jet... :shigrin

on a serious note.... I thought I read somewhere in one thread that someone was able to disable it like the seatbelt can be disabled.... not sure though.
