Ya know I never looked for that with my Rangers and BIIs, I did find the buzzer in my 84 Mazda truck. it was found hiding under the drivers seat.. seat. The easiest way to find it is tom open the door let it buzz and follow the sound. I put an icepick into the buzzer itself and silence and peace were finally at hand!

In my '85 its above the glove box beside the emmisions control service module, if you have the dash out just pull the light switch on and you'll find it easily.

but you will leave the lights on and regret it..lol

or remove it and wire you radio in sequence with your lights, that way the radio will stay on until you shut off your headlights once the key is off. only annoying thing is if you are driving and turn on/off your lights the radio will cut out for a sec. i hated that buzzer but woke up too many mornings to a dead battery after i had left my lights on after removing it, now i know that if my radio doesnt shut completely off that im forgetting something. just a thought.

Funny thing happened to me today, I drive about in my E150 wheelchair van. Well I don't use the drivers door. I use the 2 side doors. Just today I locked my keys in the van. I just forgot to remove them from the ign. I also leave the lights on once in a while. So today after the last click I realized they were still in the van. I was fortunately only locked out about 10 min. The point is I don't have any of the buzzers on my side doors and although they are annoying at times they would have saved my embarrassment today!

If you connect the switched 12+ for the radio to the headlight circuit then the headlights would be on whenever the key is on. Plus that seems like too much current for the radio circuit. Wouldn't it be better to interrupt the power supply to the headlight switch with a relay triggered by the radio circuit? Then the lights can't be on without the key in.

I never understood the complaint about the dinger anyway. I can't think of any good reason to do the things the dinger is warning against.
