Can the warning chime tone of a 2007 BMW 525i be changed, or shortened somehow?
The chime of this car comes from the computer and is used for most warnings such as seatbelt, temperature, door-open, key-in-ignition, etc. The problem is that it is very loud and obnoxiously long to the point of interfering with conversation. Since it is used for multiple purposes it seems that I cannot enter or leave the vehicle without it going off - for a while. And now that I have become annoyed by it - the annoyance grows each time I hear it and it is too loud to ignore.
Since the chime is generated by the computer and its software I assume it can be changed through programming of some kind. Is it possible to alter/adjust the warning tone?
