Default It must be MAGIC! 1999 3.0

I cannot for the life of me figure out how the dome light and key warning know when the door is open. During my lunch hour I like to kick back with to door open. But if I want to listen to the radio I have to close the door. ( Maybe if I sit on the passenger side? ) Anyway, any other rig I owned all I would have to do is press a switch in somewhere in the door frame and the buzzing and bells would stop. But I can't seem to locate a switch on the Ranger. I know this is petty But I'm really curious how it works in the Ranger.
Dang.
PS Pics are big help!

pull off your drivers side door panel.. reach back my the latch and you'll feel a plug. unplug it... that'll stop your chiming. but, it'll also stop your dome light from coming on at night.

take a screwdriver and "close the door" by pushing the latch in, just remember to open the latch before closeing the the door
