Default Shift-Lock Release Button

I have an 01 SLE. Does anyone know if there is a shift release button somewhere so I can shift the car without the key in the ignition?

Well, the reason I ask, is I had a 97 Grand Prix GT that had a little cover next to the shifter and if you removed it, you could use your key or similar object to poke down into the hole and release the shifter.

I suppose I could just pull the fuse for the chimes, but then I'd likely kill the lighting too which is helpful.

If you want just all your accessories on with the door open without that chime.. all I did was turn the key back to acc. position and slowly turn it back to off while pulling the key out. There is a little sweet spot that allows the key to be released and yet be in accessories mode where you can leave the radio on, operate all electronics ( minus the climate ), and have the door open without that annoying chime.

I'm not sure how your car works, but I've just removed the 'dinger' or chimer from each vehicle I own.

I found that if I pinch the four clips holding the factory stereo and remove it, the dinger goes away. This makes me wonder how tough it might be to replace the factory stereo.
