Safety door buzzer from hell

Since the first stop 5 miles from the dealership the safety buzzers have been sabotaging our bus nonstop. We ended up taking a fuse out to get it home to pa from dc when we picked it up 2 weeks ago. It was working fine with the buzzer installed and bugging the hell out of us. So i took buzzers out and then it decided that it will refuse to start the engine. (The safety doors have a short somewhere we can't identify). I have been trying to reinstall the buzzers and now only 1 works of the 3 I removed. I think it is a fuse issue again. I can't pinpoint it and it is infuriating.

So my question is

Who has had success in removing the buzzers AND THE KILL SWITCH on the ignition and how?

Yes I watched the YouTube video here

It hasn't been much help.

Can anybody help me please!!!

I just find the switch and strip the wires and solder them together. The switch is easy to find.

I followed the noise to the buzzer - and then just removed the buzzer. I removed most of the "school bus" wires - and buzzers - and just made sure to start the bus after each step. My bus seemed to be easier to do than I have seen on the videos.

So... Did nothing and checked the oil, back ignition worked. Inside still nothing... I think my bus is possessed by demons or my jinx wore off on it.

SOunds like you have an interlock. Maybe when you removed the door buzzer switches you cut the wires to the ignition switch. Check emergency exits and hatches, make sure the switches are closing.
I suck at electrical stuff but search for "bus ignition interlock bypass" and see what you can find.
Best of luck to you!

Figured it out!!!!
Basically the solenoid is bad.
The Green arrow is where the power goes in when you crank it. The yellow is what says if the doors are secure or not. The red is where the power goes to the starter if it is working properly. Since the short is inside the solenoid we bypassed it by moving the red arrow wire to the place where the green arrow wire is attached. This way we don't have to replace anything and the safety switches being removed does not effect the ignition.

It must be some kind of skollie commandment that each new owner must have at least one incomprehensible gremlin to puzzle out.

Congrats on fixing yours.
