I found the Lighting Control Module. It has four harnesses going into it. I disconnected the lower, pass. Side harness connector, and the car acted like the alarm had been triggered. All lights started flashing, but the horn did NOT sound (thankfully). Then I disconnected the lower driver's side harness connector. I found the black wire with pink stripe in this second harness. I reconnected all harnesses to the LC Module, openned the driver's door, and inserted ignition key, which activated the hated chime. I then crossed my fingers and snipped the black/pink stripe wire and. The chime was silenced!
I then attempted to start the car, and it wouldn't start. Keepimg my cool, I figured that since the car "thought" it was being tampered with, I should probably lock and unlock the car using the key fob remote, and that did the trick. She fired-up, and no more door open-key in ignition-chime; Praise the Lord!
I must have set some kind of record today. I fixed/reset the heater and killed the chime, all with the help of merlin2021. Super thanks! Chris.
