Disabling Key-in Warning Chime *DIY*


copied from another thread

Hi Guys,

Just got a call from Shane who was experimenting with the annoying warning chime and I was reading the service manual at the same time on the same subject.

Shane has removed the fuse (not sure which one in particular-Shane can provide more info. when he logs in) that controls the dome light and both lights-on and key-in warning chimes and the annoying sound was dead. The drawback was that all 3 went dead at the same time.

I looked at the wiring diagram in the service manual CD and noticed that all 3 alerts above (i.e. dome light on, lights-on and key-in) are actually generated from a unit called Time Control Box. This box, which contains that annoying warning signal, is located under your steering column. My head wasn't small enough for me to actually get above the pedals to see it, but I felt it and it seems like a square box with wires going into it.

Anyway, to get to this box you will need to remove the plastic panel under the steering column (big job).

I actually thought of another and simpler solution while looking at the trouble-shooting section of the "Warning Chime". This alarm gets generated and is directly linked to the door switch, so when I removed the door switch (drivers side) I noticed 3 wires, which are (dome light, lights-on and finally the annoying alarm).

My experiment stoped here, as I don't actually know which of the 3 wires is actually for warning chime and I didn't want to start cutting wires to experiment today.

But the idea is that this alarm I think can be disabled from the door switch instead of the under the steering control box (easier to put back as well).

I will experiment a bit more during the Australia Day holiday and if anyone beats me to the solution, let us know.

Hi Guys,

I've been fiddling around with this bloody door switch for the last 2 hours and I have started cutting 1 wire at a time, but didn't get anywhere, so I thought stuff this and I cut all wires going to the switch and started experimenting.

The wires are too short coming-out the body of the car, so there is very little room to play with them, so I have made an extension to all 3 wires.

OK, here are the results using the wires colour code (as they're in your car)

* Connecting Black to Red&White ==> Dome light and NO warning chime (but this is not the solution emoticon I soon realized when connecting the door switch back, that the screw is actually acting as "earth" and will stuff-up the above combination and the dome light will always stay ON!) Back to the drawing board emoticon

* The solution is: Leave the black wire connected (do NOT cut), then cut the other 2 wires and connect the Red&White coming from the body of the car to the Red wire in the door switch. Leave the 3rd wire in the switch **unconnected**

This will disable both key-in and lights-on warning alarms

While it's not ideal, I got rid of the annoying warning alarms (both of them) In reality I don't need an alarm to remind me that my lights are on. I got a habit of checking my lights when I switch off my car anyway.

If nissan are able to re-program the key-in alarm, then this might be a better option of course.

Good luck guys.

P.S. I take no responsibility for this mod and if you decide to do it, you'll be doing it at your own risk. Playing around with the wiring is not advisable, unless you know exactly what you're doing and follow the correct process while doing it.

Hi Joel,

I can confirm that the re-wiring solution only disables the key-in chime and the lights-on chime. Nothing else.

I have tested everything during my experiment and only re-wired when I made sure it does not affect anything else.

If you will try this solution, my advice (and most probably Richi's) would be to remove the fuse or disconnect the battery before cutting any wires. I was lucky that I didn't blow any fuses when I started cutting mine emoticon

If you need any help, drop me a PM.

Re: Disabling Key-in Warning Chime *DIY*


Last weekend I put in an on/off switch for the annoying key in chime. Why i put the switch behind the seat and not on the dash was when it comes time to sell no one will know its there. It was all quite easy and took around two hours.

Hi Andrew,

That sounds like a great idea and even better than my method of disabling it permanently.

With the switch you can turn it off when you're washing your exy or something similar and keep it on other times.

Can I please ask you to add a bit of a write-up on how you have done it and the way you extended the wires to the switch.

Excellent stuff mate.

Re: Disabling Key-in Warning Chime *DIY*


I was asked to do this write up after I had finished the job so some of the photos may not as informative as thay could be. If you need any more info please feel free to ask.

1. Take of front and back scuff boards and piller cover. The scuff boards just lift off as dose the piller cover, just pull it away from the rubber trim and slide it down.

Image


2. There will be three wires black, red and red with a white stripe. You need to cut the red wire say about 20mm from the door switch. Join a peace of wire to each, end around one meter in length(.5mm) with some wire joiners and tape up so it wont move around.

Image


3. Run the wires down as per photo and add wire clamps.

Image


4. Pull trim off seat floor frame from front to back a bit tricky so take your time.

Image


5. You need to make a hole for your switch. I used a peace of hot wire to cut mine out, up to you on how you do it.

Image


6. Put all your trims back plug your wire clamps into the back of your switch and push the switch into the trim and its all done. Good luck

Jalal if you would like to add anything please feel free.

Andrew

Thanks for the write-up Andrew. It's excellent.

I'll be converting my set-up soon to be like yours. It's much more practical and neat.

Good stuff mate.

Andrew, rather than cutting a hole in the trim, had you thought of routing the wires up to a switch that fits into one of the existing switch blanks near the mirror controls?
