I know everyone has their own way to stop the noise when the driver's door is open. usually you can trick the door latch. i'm doing a 01 M5 BMW. it has a button that is surrounded by plastic. i cut off a piece of scrub pad and lodged it in the hole. dinging is gone. i know you can turn the key another notch and it will soon stop. this way saves the power on the car.
I have co workers who last hours with it going. They are idiots.
it has got so bad ...that after all these years of dinging I dream about cars dinging when the alarm clock goes off and don't wake up the alarm on the phone works every time though
I did a mercedes 2 door and I used my side swiper to trip the button, 44tools has some various spring loaded devices for some of the older cars, a car dinging on the other side of a bay will bother me.....can you say mp3 player?
I just hook up the trickle charger the second they come in.
I roll down the driver's side window, put the car on ACC, shut the door. Then I tint the other doors in silence. When it comes time to do the driver's door I turn it to ON.
(I put it on the charger because it usually takes me 3 to 4 hours to do a car).
