I recently learned you can disable the door chime. Let's say if you wanted to listen to music with your doors open, but don't want a beeping sound letting you know the door is open. I do this while getting ready to go snowboarding or cycling so it's annoying to hear the beeping when I'm trying to get amped.

Heres how to do it:
  1. Press the ignition once to turn on the stereo.
  2. Open Door.
  3. Quickly press and release the black rubber button on the side of the body panel that the door closes against.
I guess it tricks the system to think the door was closed. Only issue, this really only works with the driver door. I haven't been able to get it to work while other doors are open.

Another option:
  1. Press ignition button twice (this will also enable all electronic features like climate control and windows) but will disable the chime with all doors open.

Any way to just like.. disconnect that sensor for good? It’s annoying 99% of the time every time. I would like to see the indicator on in my dash, but that door chime gives me the uncomfortable shivers just thinking about it.

You can also go to your dealer and ask them to disable the chime via computer you will still get the dash light but the sound will be off

That's cool. I wonder how much they charge for that...

I think you can do it yourself! At the moment I forgot but been meaning to shut it off. IIRC its the same screen as setting your door locks to 1 or 2 clicks and the door lock timing. Ill look tomorrow.

if you put truck in neutral, set the ebrake, you can shut down the engine and leave your stereo on with no chime or timer..

Dealer charged me nothing to do it as stated above. Just ask for it during an oil change. If your service writer isn't a d-bag they should do it without issue. Some will claim safety issues but whatever. I've had mine disabled for well over a year without issues.

Others have been successful in disabling it with the Carista App. You can do a bunch of co stuff with that app apparently.

Does this also disable the seat belt alarm? It’s driving me crazy when I’m in and out of the truck at the boat ramp.
Yes the seat belt chime can be disabled

I pulled the rubber boot off and unplugged the door the door sensor in a previous toyota vehicle and it solved the issue... could create another issue if you have a habit of leaving your keys in the vehicle.. just keep that in mind.. either way, I hate door dings... it should only go off when vehicle is in drive.

Locating the speaker and applying some silicone would probably work great too. However that buzzer is probably so small it’s probably near impossible to find.

If I had a gun with two bullets and Hitler sitting right in front of me, I’d use both of them on the cheeky cunt at Toyota who thought it’d be a good idea to make the truck beep 8 million times when you walk away from it with the key while it’s still running.

So if someone has a solution for that please lmk because I’m tired of people looking at me getting out of my truck like I’m god damn MacGruber.

Carista. Best little bit of money I spent.

I didn’t see it on the mod list but I’ll buy it anyways. There’s a couple other things I’d like to do like lane change blinker count and seatbelt chimes.
