    there is a switch in the door jam that you can either tape down or short to prevent the chime. i dont know off hand where it is on the crx.

    Personally I would just follow the beeping sound and hit it with a hammer a few times. I bugs the hell out of me. I may perhaps decide to finally locate it and disconnect it though.

    I would not recommend disabling the thing in the door jam because it turns that light on and if you have an alarm it uses that to trigger the alarm on most of them.

    good point...i haven't taken any action yet. however i think i qualify for a contortionist's license, as i worked under the dash/center console w/both doors closed. yeah i wish there were pics of it too ^_^

    On my 88 Accord there was a gray box at the base of & behind the center console that made all the annoying noises and I unplugged it. Not sure if Honda did the same thing on your Rex.. but if so make sure the important beeps (like leaving the lights on) still work if that is important to you :)

    Unfortunately in and CRX that I have owned, it never beeped if I left my headlights on. Then again, all it takes is once and you wont forget. At that point I was happy I drove a manual.

    Trivia for you: Honda's "BEEPBEEPBEEPBEEP BEEPBEEPBEEPBEEP" is "H" in morse code. 4 beeps and a pause.

    not sure about the crx, but in my hatch, where the rearview mirror attaches at the headliner theres a box, has the seatbelt lights on it. thats where the ding comes from. just take it down and unplug it.

    yeah....so here's where it really is:

    behind the fuse box..
    [​IMG]

    is a little grey box....
    [​IMG]

    and inside that grey box is a lil board...
    [​IMG]

    and on that board is a round black knobby thing that is the source of the door chime. pull it off and stomp on it a few times; reinstall the board in the grey box behind the fuse box and then you can rock your car without the door chimes :thumbsup:
