Got tired of the door chime, so I improvised!

There have been a couple of times that i have been working on my car but had to have the keys in the ignition with the door open, and have just about said to hell with it because of the stupid door chime. I looked to see if there was a way to shut it off like the belt chime, but couldn't find a way. I finally just unsoldered the speaker from the little control box under the dash, and called it a day. I forgot about the fact that the car also uses that bell to warn you of impending doom, which i found out the hard way when my brand new water pump seized up on monday, and engine overheated badly without me noticing for a short while.

So I did this! spliced a switch in line with the speaker so i can shut it off at will. No real groundbreaking achievement, but i figure some of you might hate that chime with the same burning passion as i do, so i figured i woud share. (Click third picture for video example)
