Guys, thanks a lot for this post.

I have run into faulty door handles on 3 of the 4 doors on my 04 v8. Keyless entry works only on the driver's door. Dealer wants over $2K to replace the door handles and my KESSY is going crazy when driving. I am GUESSING that it is a faulty door handles sensors because MFI keeps telling me to "put selector lever in P", which is also accompanied by an erratic clicking noise coming from KESSY module or the module adjacent to it. Clicking is also observed when the vehicle is not running and key is out of the ignition. Recently, as a result, I have started experiencing rapid battery drain (overnight), which I am guessing is related to the same issue.

As I do not care for the keyless access, I am wondering if I can simply cut/disconnect the wiring to the handles, similarly to the above. Will that affect the vehicle in any way negatively, or is it just going to stop me from being able to use this convenience feature, and avoid the battery drain problem.?

Many thanks!
