Well, you might be surprised at who would be asking why the chime is disabled. I suspect any dealer would have to reconnect things as a safety feature, before reselling the car. There may also be an insurance issue with the buying party's company for a private sale. Not to mention any state DMV issues that may or may not be affected. While its your car you can pretty much do what you want to it (broadly speaking) but when you are transferring it to another party it becomes another story, especially a dealer as a trade in. I know that if I was buying a car that had safety features (however useful) disabled I would want everything put back together to insure against potential liability issues. Good luck in any event!
