Hey,
I own a 93 Mazda MX6 and whenever i put the key into ignition there is a key bell, it isnt untill either all doors are locked or the car is actually ignited that the beeping stops.
I was wondering where is it located and how could i remove it.
Thanks,
Phill.

its located in the cpu box. That bell also warns you of leaving your lights on when ignition set to off, i can assure you, you will be hitting yourself over the head with a hammer the first time you come back to a flat battery.
Its a warning indicator, doors not shut correctly, lights on etc etc.. just put the ignition to on, that will keep it quiet whilst you are working on it.

I took the beeper out of my taurus but there is something wrong electrically and it wouldn't stop beeping. :shrug:

Does the beeping occur at bad times or something?

If I am working on the car with the doors opened and the key turned on so I can have the radio on I just prop something up against the little sensor that the door pushes down when it is closed. That should stop the beeping in that situation.

the way they work is when your door is shut of your lights are off it grounds the circut..

by leaving your door open it doensnt make a full circut and starts the bell..

its kind of backwards from what you would expect. by removing it you will never have a full loop so it will always go off.. the best way to remove it is to ground the main wire..

if you don't mind not having a radio, you can always disconnect the interior fuse and it'll stop the beeping and lights, etc. altogether :) but it won't be annoying you anymore. i think it's the raised fuse on the bottom of the fuse box
