Temporally you can rock the catch in the door portion into the latched position.....Just don't forget to pull up on handle prior to closing the door.....

I've read somewhere on this site you can drill a small hole in the chime speaker under the dash.

Gee,
Is it really a good idea to be drilling into any electronic device? If you own an O3, Take special warning before attempting to disable "key in" chimer when door is open.

01,02's
The door chimer tone is already annoying enough! A hole in drilled in the small chimer speaker would just badly distort the already annoying sound or destroy the speaker coil. This can't be good on the driver electronics module! If it's driving you nuts, disconnect the door sense wire as indicated on some of the other posts on this thread.

If you own an 03, forget tampering with the door wiring or the chime speaker! It's all tied to main CPU and appears to be using the door mounted stereo speakers. Tampering with a 03 door control wiring could lead to a total system failure? In 03, the door functions/wiring is all matrixed for less wiring going into and from the doors. It's all scanned and monitored by common control buss/wiring to an On-board computer and is totally different than the 01 & 02's!

For the 2003's, I guess that if you remove the stock radio and install an aftermarket the door chime will "go away". I'm out of town right now, but I believe that it was in the owner's manual. (sorry if i'm not correct on this)

The speaker for the door chime is mounted on a circuit board inside a computer module. The module is located under the steering column. This module runs all the stupid annoying stuff like door chimes, idiot message center, security system, etc. Unplug the module and take out the screws to open it up. Remove the speaker and put it all back together. The computer module needs to be plugged in or the security system will cause the engine will not run.

The name came from the first duramax pickup that I owned. It didn't make it home from the dealer. The big problem was the transmission locked into 3rd and no reverse. The cruise was intermittent, the rain would leak in under the dash, etc. I dumped that truck off at the dealer. I was dumb enough to go get another one with a different list of problems.
