[s-cars] Too much beeping

I have had the instrument cluster "bulb out" warning and associated beeping
on my '93 S4 for about two years now.  I have tried to touch-up the solders
in several locations on the IC as suggested by several folks with absolutely
no success.  In fact, the last time I tried the touch-up, it caused another
intermittent warning of "brems licght" or some such.  This beep is fairly
weather/temperature dependant with sometimes beeping only on startup
and other times it will beep several times per minute.  I have methodically
changed every exterior light bulb on the car, twice.  I am convinced it is
in the IC, but cannot find the intermittently broken circuit.

Well, I'm completely over this annoyance.  Can anyone tell me how to
permanently disable the bulb out screen and it's associated
beep?  Obviously, I don't want to screw anything else up, but can easily
live without the radio display and this seriously aggravating beeping crap.

Besides, I might want to install a set of Valentine warning arrows in there

Any help appreciated.
