I was going to go out and take my door panel off to verify this, however IIRC there is a disconnect inside the door itself....I'm not sure however if that disconnect includes the PW/PL/Power mirrors/dome, dinger/stereo wires or not....I think Ill go and investigate this yet today.

if there is a power and ground wire for the dinger, then you put a simple switch there to turn it on and off... If you have the doors on--> "on", if you have the doors off--> "off"

Of course, saying I put a switch in and actually putting a switch in are two totally different ballgames.

[EDIT]

Well, I just looked at the door and all I see is the rubber boot to cover the wires.

Ok....so i hate to inform you, but there is no quick disconects on my truck...so i doubt that there are any on yours....my drivers side has 16 wires in its loom and my passanger side has 13 wires in its loom....i was gonna take the kick panels off to see if maybe i missed a disconnect that was hiding there, but i have a massive head ache from that deadener....so i said fawk it and went back inside.

Well, I found out that the law in FL is that you don't have to have doors, but you have to have 1 rearview mirror...
