Hi,Unfortunately the chime can not be disabled yourself, as it is integrated into the dash module... there is nothing that can be unplugged etc, it is part of an internal circuit board.The dealer can disable the warning ("can", though since it is a safety device they often will decline to do so) via the scan tool.For temporary relief, what you can do is unplug the electrics to the door and that should silence the warning. Since the system detects a ground when the door is ajar, when you unplug the electrics this will disable the ground indicating the door is ajar and should silence the alarm. You will loose all power to the door however.This is fairly invasive requiring removal of interior panels to get to the harnesses for the door and should be done by a shop to minimize damage.Apart from that option, the only other thing you can try is giving the door a few hard slams to try to jar loose whatever portion of the mechanism is sticking and giving the erroneous open signal. This won't work if the switch itself is bad etc, but if it is just sticking that will sometimes free it up temporarily.
Please let me know if you need more help or if we can close out this ticket.
