Disconnecting the emergency exit "Kill Switchs"

Does anyone know the best way to bypass the Emergency Exit Kill switch in th late 80s BlueBird.
There are 2 rear doors on my bus and they have some sort of relays (2) in an access hatch by each door,Just wondered if anyone else had scrapped these features at the ignition and had any advice or problems????????????????
Cant ask or search Tutorials due to internal error and no access
So I am not sure where to post this question
Thanks in Advance

We have the buzzer units disconnected (rear door and both emergency windows) and have started the bus several times. No problems. It appears that the buzzer only sounds and does not interfere with the ignition operation.

This is a pick of the ignition cutoff
If cylinder lock is removed to lock Exit door from the inside.
It sets off a buzzer in the armrest and the starter wont engage.
I was gonna try and get picks of the relays inside box but the flash 86d the bosch numbers
Thinkin they might be something more complicated than a ground to break the circuit I am gonna disassemble when I get voltmeter from jobsite and will post findings
thanks for the input.

Re: Disconnecting the emergency exit "Kill Switchs"

Hey, that looks just like ours. It's currently lying on the floor of the bus. It was completely removed while we were still in NC. David may have reconnected a couple of wires to complete the circuit but I don't know. I can't ask as he's selling today. I'll ask this evening when he gets in.

On Edit: David says he just removed it. He's not sure if it was hooked up to do anything except buzz. Our bus was previously used to haul whitewater rafters hither and yon. The previous owners (rafting company) may have messed with it.

Cut the wires, and wire them together. That'll complete the circuit.
