How to disable start up chime?

Fri Jun 22, 2018 4:15 pm

I have tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and the start up chime is very painful for me. Is there a way I can disable it? I doubt I can thru software so Im assuming its has to be done thru hardware. Does it just come out of the main speakers? Could I just disconnected the front and rear stereo speakers or does it have it own speaker somewhere in the dash or console?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Do you have a '12? Would nice to specify in the post or signature.

If so, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC3UV9adPRc. I believe it's under Effects.

I only ask because the way the menus and dash display work is the same from '11 to '17 ('13+ have more functions and S trims have some timer settings there instead of on the nav system that's not in the S) but is TOTALLY different on the '18.

The method is the same. You might find other useful videos at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxGaOr ... =2013+leaf.
