Just follow your ear and un-plug the little black box that is making the noise.

The "box" is behind the radio on the drivers side... unfortunately unplugging it also dissables the windshield wipers and interior lights.

In 95’ Ford was still using the buzz box. I removed it from my F-150 and my Ranger, with no problems with any other systems.

Sorry, I don't know which wire to cut to disable the chime. I also have a '95 Ranger and was bothered by my chime sometimes sounding off when I exited the truck and sometimes it wouldn't. Some kind soul, who was aware of my problem, inquired if I had an after market radio installed. I did indeed. Apparently the GEM circuit was screwed up when they installed it. I found if I always leave my radio turned on, when I turn off the ignition key, the alarm doesn't chime when I exit my truck. Just a thought.

I Know How To Fix It!!!

my 95 did the same thing... chime would ring forever after i shut the door and was going down the road, and the interior light would stay on too. So what i did was got into that black box, removed it, then just broke off the siren. then i put it back in. the light stayed on though. so then my friend that had a 96 said to spray WD40 in the door jamb, so i did and the light stayed off. Now i wish i would've just used the wd-40 so i'd stop leaving my headlights on (you know--the headlight warning chime). but yeah, if the wd didn't work--break it off.

Question How to disable the alarm horn honk?

Hopefully this isn't too off topic, but is there also a way to disable the horn from honking when the alarm is set (i.e. when you press the lock button twice on the key fob)?

The only way to disable the chime in a newer Ranger (and I'm not sure when Ford went to the circuit board type chime/windows/doors/etc.) is to take out the radio, remove the board from its case and very carefully unsolder the chime from the board. It can be done!! --- and after doing it, it's nice not having to listen to the stupid thing when you're trying to listen to the radio with the doors open!!
