Do you have an 80s alarm clock or a bong?

My late '01 Spec S has a horrendous beep-beep-beep-beep alarm clock sound for door open or whatever. I've seen other S15s in videos which have a nice bong bong bong noise. Which do you have?

More to the point, does anyone know how to stop it from going on and on all the time you have the keys in with the door open? It's extremely annoying.

It's a simple case of unplugging a connection in the steering column I'm pretty sure. No ill effects and doesn't break anything else. Not sure which one though sorry

The steering column plug isn't hard. Wouldn't disconnecting the door switch prevent the interior lights from turning on?

Here we go. Even took a photo for you.



Just take out the 5 screws from under the column (should be Phillips), then take off the top and bottom halves, get your gypsy fingers in the gap and undo this plug. It only disconnects the bong and nothing else.

Actually, I just figured out it does something else equally annoying but more bewildering.

Every time you turn the car on, the rear demister turns on after about a minute. I have no idea why and I'm 100% sure this is what's done it because my old Silvia did the same thing, with the same mod. I thought it was just a quirk but this basically proves this plug does it.

I have no fecking idea why. Wiring diagram doesn't show it at all
