Can anyone tell me how to disable the warning chime? Is the speaker built into module? I look under the driver's side dash but can't find the module.

I figured out how to silence the chime. The obvious choice would be to simply unplug the harness from the module however it is very difficult reach. I chose to simply snip the purple/yellow wire at the bcm harness (the left most harness at the bcm).IMG_20230122_215308915.jpg

Here's the backside of the bcm located behind the glovebox. I snipped the purple yellow wire, bottom right corner of the leftmost harness. In doing so, I hear a few chimes upon starting then silence. I still see the error messages and the headlight on warning chime works but all else is silent.
