Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The chime circuit is incorporated into the body control module and can not be disabled. There are several system that can cause it to sound and in most cases its due to a fault someplace in the system. In order to be able to determine what is causing it to sound you are going to need to start with with scanning the body control module to see what the fault code and or codes are that should be setting. If you can get this done and post back with he fault codes I will see if I can help you with this.

Thanks you for your response: However the car and I are in southern Patagonia Chile, there is NO KIA dealer or service area that sports a diagnostic facility. The beeping was eliminated by removing #20 fuse in the inside fuse panel; OF COURSE this also effects the electric windows and door locks, but wife and i are for the moment dealing with no windows instead of continious beeping which after a few minutes can splinter ones patience and "Calm nature". but thanks for the advice, even after three local ~mechanics sort of rolled their eyes at the problem a fuse and now window access is a cheap solutin

Okay you at least have silenced the beeper and if you can live with no window until you can get it someplace to have it scanned then you okay for now. If you are able to get the scan done and need my help let me know and we can work from there. Thank you as well.
