I finally located the buzzer next to the glovebox...can I just unplug that irritating squealing thing? It drives me crazy...

Yep, just unplug it. It'd be nice to repurpose it as a "turn your lights off" reminder would take some mods but I think someone has done it already.

Just unplug it. that was one of the first things I did when I got my first Tercel4wd.

I leave it in place, just in case someone nostalgic for government mandated annoying features wants to "restore" it to original function. I should just remove it and trash it. But I harbor the fantasy that these cars may actually become valuable and there will be those that want to restore it to "factory new" condition.
